Clomid is an orally administered, nonsteroidal, ovulatory stimulant. It possess functioning traits that are beneficial to the anabolic steroid user post anabolic steroid use. It is used in Post Cycle Therapy (PCT).
Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate) has the ability to stimulate the pituitary to release more LH and FSH in men, which will in turn stimulate enhanced natural testosterone production. This is extremely beneficial to the anabolic steroid user post cycle as natural testosterone levels will be very low due to suppression caused by anabolic steroid use.
Clomid is used for enhanced recovery of testosterone production after anabolic steroid cycles. It carries strong anti-estrogen properties that could be used therapeutically, but its anti-estrogen properties are most commonly associated with anabolic steroid use.
Clomid works by occupying the binding sites of estrogen receptors of cells, without activating the receptors. This reduces the extent to which estradiol can activate these receptors. If androgen levels are not elevated, as indeed they should not be after an anabolic steroid cycle, the hypothalamus is then stimulated to produce LHRH. This will act to increase LH and restart natural testosterone production.
