Indications for use of the drug
The main purpose of Clomid is considered to be the treatment of female infertility. In other words, the stimulating drug is effective in the treatment of anovulatory infertility (so-called ovulation induction), dysfunctional metrorrhagia, amenorrhea and its secondary manifestations, occurring against the background of a pituitary tumor of galactorrhea. The drug is no less effective in the appearance of symptoms of many rare diseases, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (Stein-Leventhal syndrome), Chiari-Frommel syndrome, androgen insufficiency, oligospermia, diagnosis of violations of the gonadotropic function of the pituitary gland.
In most cases, Clomid normalizes testosterone levels and spermatogenesis within 10-14 days. Therefore, it is taken as soon as you stop taking steroids. At this time, it is extremely important to restore testosterone production as quickly as possible to minimize the loss of strength and muscle mass. Even greater results are achieved when Clomid is combined with a hormonal drug or when Clomid is taken after treatment with such drugs.
The difference between Clomid and any hormonal drug is that Clomid has a direct effect on the hypothalamus and pituitary and activates the entire reflex arc, while a hormone-based drug increases the effect of luteinizing hormone, which, in turn, stimulates the testicular cells to produce more testosterone. Due to the fact that hormonal medications, in contrast to Clomid, significantly increase the level of testosterone a few hours after taking it, many athletes first take them, and only then Clomid.
Although Clomid is a synthetic estrogen, it acts, paradoxically, as an antiestrogen. It blocks stronger estrogens that occur during aromatization. This, of course, does not prevent the aromatization of steroids, but the multiplied estrogens are still mostly inactivated. Strong water retention and possible feminization phenomena can be suppressed or completely eliminated.
Due to the weaker anti-estrogenic effect of Clomid compared to Proviron, Nolvadex and Teslak, it is mainly used as a stimulant for the production of testosterone.
