    Clomid Facts and Questions Answered!

    POSTED BY THE IRON GAME



    Clomid: Frequently Asked Questions

    Something I put together that may help some of the new comers out there as well as some of the more experienced.

    Question: What is Clomid?

    Answer: Clomid is a synthetic estrogen and is generally prescribed by doctors to trigger ovulation in females.

    Question: Why Should Bodybuilders use Clomid?

    Answer: Almost all anabolic androgenic steroids will cause an inhibition of the bodies own testosterone production. When he comes off the steroids he has no natural test production and no more steroids. The body is left in a state of catabolism (catabolic hormones are high and anabolic hormones are low) and as a result much of the muscle tissue that was gained on the cycle is now going to be lost. Clomid stimulates the hypophysis to release more gonadotropin so that a faster and higher release of follicle stimulating hormone aud luteinizing hormone occurs. This results in an increase of the body's own testosterone production.

    Question: Does Clomid also work as an anti estrogen?

    Answer: Clomid is a synthetic estrogen, however it does also work as an anti-estrogen. How does it work? Because it is a weak synthetic estrogen, it will bind to the estrogen receptor (ER) and not cause any problems. At the same time the increase in estrogen from steroids are blocked from attaching to the ER.

    Question: How effective is Clomid as an anti-estrogen?

    Answer: It is very weak and should not be relied upon if you are going to be using steroids that aromatise at any rapid rate, or if you are pre disposed to gyno. Arimidex , Proviron and Nolvadex will all make better choices for this purpose.

    Question: Some say Clomid during a cycle is a waste, is this true?

    Answer: Lets first examine what happens when someone is using anabaolic androgenic steroids. When the level of androgens in the body get too high, the androgen receptor becomes more highly activated, and the hypothalamus stops sending a signal to the pituitary. In short the signal tells our body to stop producing testosterone. During a cycle the body has higher levels than normal of androgens and as long as this level is high enough clomid will not help to keep natural test production up. It will be almost all but completely shut off. The only purpose of clomid during a cycle is as an anti-estrogen.

    Question: When do I start Clomid? Some say 2 weeks others 3.

    Answer: When you start using your clomid all depends on what steroids you were using during your cycle. Different steroids have different half lifes and you should adjust your clomid intake accordingly. As we have seen above, if we take clomid when the androgen levels in our body is still high it will be a waste. We need to wait for androgen levels to fall before implementing our clomid therapy. However if we take it too late we could possibly lose gains. Look at the list below to determine when you should start clomid therapy. By selecting from the list all the steroids you used in your cycle and which ever one has the latest starting point then go with that. For example if I cycled dbol , sustanon and winstrol I would use sustanon as it remains active in the body for the longest period of time.

    Anadrol /Anapolan: 8 - 12 hours after last administration
    Deca : 3 weeks after last injection and clomid for 4 weeks
    Dianabol : 4 – 8 hours after last administration
    Equipoise : 17 – 21 days after last injection
    Fina: 3 days after last injection
    Primobolan depot: 10 – 14 days after last injection
    Sustanon: 3 weeks after last injection
    Testosterone Cypionate : 2 weeks after last injection
    Testosterone Enanthate : 2 weeks after last injection
    Testosterone Propionate : 3 days after last injection
    Testosterone Suspension : 4 – 8 hours after last administration
    Winstrol: 8 – 12 hours after last administration

    Question: What is the most effective way for Clomid therapy.

    Answer: Clomid has a long half life and as such there is no need to split up doses throughout the day. I read some where that it was 5 days (any feedback on this). Now if we used sustanon and we start using clomid 3 weeks after our last injection we anticipate that androgen levels are low enough to start sending the correct signals. If androgen levels are still a little high then the normal 50mgs/day of clomid for 1 week is not going to be effective. We need to start at a high enough amount that will work or help even if androgen levels are still a little high. 300mgs on day 1. I know I said don’t split it up due to its long half life but try and split this up 2 tabs 3 times a day. After we have finished this first day we seek to use 100mgs for 10 days and then followed by 50mgs for 10 days.

    Question: Do I need to use Clomid for 3 weeks?

    Answer: Why don’t you want too? It is very cheap, very effective and can mean the difference between maintaining gains and losing them.

    Question: How cheap is Clomid?

    Answer: Clomid normally comes in 50mg tablets but also comes in capsule form of 25mgs. A 50mg tablet can be anywhere between 25 cents and $2.50. (15 pence and 75 pence in England).

    Question: Do all steroids cause shut down of the hpta.

    Answer: Not all steroids do. Everyone is different and you must also take into account how long you have been using a certain steroid and at what dose in order to determine if you need clomid or not. However as the price is so cheap, why risk not using it.

    All kiding aside IG - you really should do a rework - This is a major, high quality post and Ive seen pieces of it on a few boards now. Every other newbie (and even some vets) asks questions on Clomid use. Get around to it, I know its hard but look at what else youve gained info wise since the origional and give it an edit, elaborate on some areas.

    Please do cause your gonna see this one or pieces of it around for a looooonnnnnngggggg time i think - it really was/is a great post.

    I can't believe you guys. I spend all this time creating a web page with all of the old important posts. I spend even more time makint it easy to find all of the old post in my sig, and not even the mods use it.

    And Big Al, you know I have already put Yoda's Stack on my page and in my sig. Please don't do that to us; I don't want to see that thing bumped for the next year and a half.

    Nice post, I agree with everything except this:

    It is very weak and should not be relied upon if you are going to be using steroids that aromatise at any rapid rate, or if you are pre disposed to gyno. Arimidex , Proviron and Nolvadex will all make better choices for this purpose.

    I don't know how this belief came about and where it originated from. Maybe it's because clomid is cheap compared to nolvadex people thought this or something. Gram for gram, clomiphene citrate is a bit weaker than tamoxifen citrate. But tablet for tablet, they're about the same- 50g of clomiphene has about the same estrogen blocking power as 20mg nolvadex. Not only that, clomid will keep your loads thick and juicy during your cycle, and minimize testicle shrinkage...something nolva doesnt really help with.

    Here's a statement by Bill Roberts about this (in regard to comparing clomid tabs vs nolvadex tabs):

    Tamoxifen is the slightly more potent of the two though the majority of that is simply due to different systems of reporting the amount of drug. A "20 mg" Nolvadex tablet actually contains 30.4 mg of tamoxifen citrate and contains 20 mg of tamoxifen. A "50 mg" Clomid tablet contains 50 mg of clomiphene citrate and only 34 mg of clomiphene. In any case, "which is the more potent, having more effect per milligram" is not an important issue in drug choice except where a compound being considered is so low in potency that an adequate dose cannot be given, or sometimes where the high potency makes it difficult to supply the precise, tiny dosage needed. You just take the appopriate dose of the drug to get the effect desired, no matter whether that is 1 mg or 100 mg, provided that the amount can be absorbed and is practical.

    In terms of effect on gyno 20 mg Nolvadex is approximately equal to 50 mg Clomid. In terms of improving LH it is markedly inferior.

    well, thats the point - clomid is only good for post cycle recovery of normal testicular function IMO - gyno is best handled during the cycle with arimdex.

    I wouldn't say" ONLY good for"...clomid is also an effective anti-estrogen, just as effective as tamoxifen citrate (in effective dosages) but having other benefits and being much cheaper-that's the point I'm trying to get across. And yes, I think arimidex is superior of the 3 compounds(for eliminating effects from estrogen in a cycle), that's not what I was debating, though.

    clomid will minimise testicle shrinkage during your cycle?

    Iron Game: My last two statements were something based on personal experience. It might be a placebo effect...but it definately makes a big difference for me vs no clomid during my cycles.

    Hey good post. I just learned about clomid from this site, and from what i read im glad i did as it seems very helpful. I jsut have a few questions:
    1)I am going to take winny so how much clomid should i take a week and how long ? I read take it 8 hours after your last dose of winny is taken but how long do i take it after that and how many days a week and how much a day ?
    2)Where do i get this from, can i get it in a pharmacy or my supplier ? I know this might sound dumb but i never heard of clomid before.
    3) Are the tabs better or the same as injections ( if htere is injections)
    4)Are there any bad side to Clomid?

    I'm by far not an expert about it, but i've read quite a bit about clomid and usually, as a rule of thumb, most people say take 100mg ed for 12 days obviously after the half life time has run out. What are you opinions about that?...web
