Clomid is a synthetic estrogen used to induce ovulation in women.
Bodybuilders typically use Clomid as an anti-estrogen and to stimulate
testosterone production when coming off a steroid cycle. Clomid causes
an elevation of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. As
a result, natural testosterone production is also increased.
After a steroid cycle, testosterone production is suppressed.
If testosterone levels are not brought to normal, a dramatic loss in size
and strength may occur. Clomid is ghas been used in preventing this
also an estrogen that works as an anti-estrogen. The reason that
it works is that Clomid is a weak estrogen. It will typically bind
to the estrogen receptors not allowing the harsher estrogens that are a
byproduct of a testosterone cycle from attaching to the receptors.
This signifigantly cuts down on the risks of bad side effects such as gyno.
Cycling bodybuilders will suffer from an elevated estrogen level at the
conclusion of a cycle. A high estrogen levels and low testosterone levels
can be a disasterous combination. With the intake of Clomid, the
athlete gets the dual effect of blocking out some of the effects of estrogen,
while also increasing endogenous testosterone production.
