Clomid® – is the common trade name for the drug clomiphene citrate. It is not an anabolic steroid. It is a drug that is most often recommended for women as a means to enhance the ability to reproduce offspring.This is due to the fact that clomiphene citrate is very good stimulates ovulation. In addition, it also blocks / reduces the effect of estrogen in the body. In more detail, Clomid® is chemically a synthetic estrogen that has both positive and negative characteristics and is very similar in structure and action to Nolvadex®. In some tissues it may block estrogen’s ability to bind to appropriate receptors. In clinical practice, his task – to resist the opposite effect of estrogen on the axis of the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which enhances the release of luteinizing hormone (LH) and FSH (follicle stimulating hormone). All this helps to stimulate ovulation.
Speaking of athletic opportunities, Clomid® gives enormous opportunities for women. However, increasing the level in men and follicle stimulating hormone primarily LH leads to enhanced generation of natural testosterone. This effect is very beneficial for the athletes at the end of a steroid cycle when endogenous testosterone levels decreased. If you do not restore testosterone levels to the required, then, as soon as you stop taking anabolic steroids may decrease in muscle size and decrease their power characteristics.This is due to the fact that due to the absence of testosterone (or other androgens) in the body catabolic hormone cortisol and becomes the dominant effect on protein synthesis in muscle and causes rapid catabolic metabolism. This process is often referred to as the post-steroid breakdown, which can quickly destroy all the newly created muscle. Clomid® can significantly help to prevent such problems in athletes.With regard to women, for them to use Clomid® is a way to control the level of natural estrogen before the competition. This drug helps destroy fat and build muscles especially in problem areas such as women’s hips and the lateral surface. However Clomid® can also cause some problems in women (see. Below) and therefore the drug is not in great demand in this group of athletes.
Men often take on a daily basis about 50-100 mg (1-2 tablets) of the drug for 4-6 weeks, which allows you to return the natural reproduction of testosterone to the desired level. Such an increase in testosterone levels should be performed slowly enough, but gradually over a period of treatment. Since most athletes are interested in an immediate increase in testosterone levels, many prefer to combine Clomid® with HCG (human GGCH- HCG ) during the first week or two weeks after discontinuation of steroids. Momentum from HCG also helps to restore normal testicular opportunity to respond to endogenous LH (luteinizing hormone), which was hampered for some time after the end of the cycle due to a prolonged state of inactivity. After receiving HCG continues to receive only Clomid®. Do not use HCG for more than 2-3 weeks, as elevated levels of testosterone and estrogen can cause re-reverse the inhibitory effect on the hypothalamus. In planning the reception of additional steroids, remember that injectable steroids remain active in the body for a long period of time. Acceptance of additional drugs in the first week after receiving injections of a powerful tool like Sustanon may be completely useless. You need to wait 2 or 3 weeks until the level of androgens in the body begin to decline. At this point, the body will be ready and set to restore testosterone reproduction.
Sometimes Clomid® and use HCG during a steroid cycle in order to avoid reducing natural testosterone levels. It turned out that in some cases, this method of taking the drugs is not well suited, especially when receiving androgen strengths over time. In addition, there is no exact dosage regimen of the combination of drugs. Some athletes have experimented with taking small doses of HCG in combination with 2-3 tablets Clomid® for several days without a break, but followed a long break in receiving these drugs. It would be possible to follow the regimen mentioned Clomid® and the HCG, if not for the fact that this combination of drugs can lose their effectiveness if you follow it consistently. However, this method may be more effective to stimulate the production of testosterone in the body after a steroid cycle, rather than to maintain testosterone levels while taking steroids.
It should be added that in addition to assistance in the recovery of natural testosterone levels, Clomid® can help cope with the increased amount of estrogen during a steroid cycle. High levels of estrogen can cause an athlete to serious complications, such as gynecomastia. Taking Clomid®, athletes significantly reduce the risk of gynecomastia. Properties Clomid®, «block» estrogen, is somewhat weaker than, for example, with Nolvadex®, therefore rarely used for the last replacement Clomid®, if necessary to maintain the level of estrogen in the body. Although, of course, both drugs are in the same body and are interchangeable in relation to estrogens. Clomid® may also be used to maintain an anti-estrogen in the body while taking steroids, as well as Nolvadex®. In most cases, the reception Clomid® sufficiently effective, the drug is well reduces estrogen activity in the body and prevents the development of gynecomastia, fat accumulation and excess fluid. Unfortunately, this action Clomid® the drug as well as Nolvadex® may not always be the case, so many athletes feel the need to use any additional anti-estrogen drugs. Most often, as an additional tool used Proviron®, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) for oral administration, which is used to reduce aromatase activity and increase the ratio of androgens to estrogens. Combination Clomid® / Nolvadex® plus Proviron® is particularly effective, although both of the first drug can be replaced with a more specific aromatase inhibitor or both Arimidex® Cytadren®. These drugs are more effective in the “fight” with estrogen, but much more expensive.
In terms of toxicity and side effects, the Clomid® considered a very safe drug. Athletes rarely report any side effects of its action, it can only be the heat (hot flushes), nausea, dizziness, headaches, and temporary visual disturbances (mist). Most of these adverse events occur in women, as they are sharper than men respond to changing estrogen levels. This Clomid® really more effective for women, although generally manipulate estrogen levels – not the best way to lose weight. If Clomid® used it for this purpose and its side effects are strong enough, you should stop taking it, at least for a while.
Clomiphene citrate can be found for sale on the black market under various brand names. This drug is quite expensive: $ 2-4 per tablet 50 mg. Such drugs like Clomiphene citrate production Anfarm from Greece are often found on the black market and sold at a relatively low price. The US is particularly common Omifin from Mexico. Buy Clomid® on the black market is quite safe as any counterfeiting of the drug are not known. Many athletes prefer to buy a means of foreign firms in search of lower prices for 1 tablet.
