Clomid or clomiphene citrate is an anti-estrogenic substance which is used and prescribed to women with fertility and ovulation problems. In the medical world it is known as a non-steroidal ovulatory stimulant. The drug acts by saturating the receptors of the estrogen in an agonist form on different body organs such as the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, ovaries, endometrium, vagina and cervix.
Clomid is a chemically synthetic estrogen with agonistic and antagonistic properties similar to tamoxifen and nolvadex. In males clomid works as an antiestrogen and it is used along with anabolic steroids to avoid side effects such as gynecomastia.
Like all anti-estrogenic drugs, clomid elevates the follicle and luteinizing hormone which are responsible for endogenous testosterone production. This effect is very beneficial when a post cycle therapy is used due to endogenous testosterone being very low when both the follicle and luteinizing hormones are absent.
Clomid can be used with HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) and tamoxifen to stimulate the production of endogenous testosterone, to avoid an unbalance of anabolic and catabolic hormones. It is important to understand that tamoxifen, clomiphene and toremifene act intrinsically as an estrogen in the liver meaning the function of estrogen in other parts of the body could be blocked. The liver and estrogen play a very important role in regulating cholesterol HDL and LDL.
Clomiphene citrate is considered to be the same as tamoxifen like a SERM (selective estrogen receptor modulator. Due to its agonists and antagonists which act in a selective way in different organs of every body.
Clomid appears to be highly tolerable due to very little reports on any sorts of side effects, few of which have been vomiting, nausea, upset stomach and blurry vision. If blurry vision is experiences it is recommended to take lower doses for 30 days. Side effects subside after termination of treatment.
