Clomid is an anti-estrogenic drug. It is classified as SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator). The component of this drug is Clomiphene citrate, it is a non-steroidal fertility drug used to aid women with ovulation issues. Clomid is one of many drugs used by anabolic steroid users to aid from the side effects of elevated estrogen levels that may occur while on anabolic steroids or hormonal replacement therapy.
Steroids such as testosterone and other testosterone derived steroids tend to convert to estrogen, this happens due to the interaction with an enzyme called Aromatase leading to an increase in estrogen levels. A high level of estrogen leads to Gynecomastia (man breast), water retention and might lead to high blood pressure caused by the retention. Stacking Clomid with steroids will inhibit the ability of estrogen to bind with the receptors preventing it from stimulating the mammary gland and having the un-natural growth of them.
Athletes and bodybuilders usually use Clomid in PCT (post cycle therapy), that’s because it has the ability to enhance the production of natural testosterone. when athletes use steroids such as testosterone, a suppression of natural testosterone production happens and it stays suppressed till the cycle ends. However once the cycle has finished, natural production of testosterone starts but in a very slow base, it may take 8 months to even a year for the natural testosterone to reach its pre-cycle level. That is way Clomid is recommended to be used not only during cycle but also in PCT, not only due to its anti-estrogenic effect, but also for its ability to aid with the natural testosterone production.
Note that this drug is not as effective as Aromatase inhibitor drugs such as Arimidex and Femara. If you are a strong anabolic steroid user this drug alone won’t be enough, so you might want to consider the usage Aromatase inhibitor while on a hardcore cycle.
For the usage of this drug while on anabolic steroid, a dose of 50mg per day throughout the cycle is considered enough. However if this dose is not protecting you from the side effect, then consider replacing this drug with an Aromatase inhibitor.
As for PCT, the duration of the therapy should last from 4-6 weeks. In the first 1-2 weeks the dose starts from 100-150mg per day. After that, the dose should be decreased for 100-50mg per day for 1-2 weeks. At the last two weeks a dose of 50mg per day is taken.
