If you are looking for a highly effective and safe antiestrogen to reduce or prevent estrogenic side effects immediately before the end or at the end of an anabolic steroid cycle, Clomid, also known as Clomiphene citrate and LiquiClom, would be a good choice.

This SERM (selective estrogen receptor modulator) is medically recommended to women with an inability to conceive on their own. It is also admired for reducing or inhibiting the formation of excess estrogens in the body, especially after an anabolic steroid cycle involving harsh or aromatizable steroids, and restoring the natural production of hormones such as testosterone, besides revitalizing the levels of luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone. Clomid use is also associated with enhanced bioavailability of anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs that are part of a bulking steroid cycle or cutting steroid cycle.

It is also used for treating polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) related infertility or cases of unexplained infertility or when expensive and invasive fertility treatments, like IVF are not preferred by couples. Pregnancy-keen women can have sex for pregnancy one to two days before ovulation or seek medical advice for help in predicting the most fertile days. By stimulating an increase in the levels of hormones that help the growth and release of a mature egg (ovulation), Clomid aid conception and boost fertility. The incidence of multiple pregnancy (including twins, triplets, quadruplets, and quintuplets) can be greater when conception occurs during a cycle in which Clomiphene therapy is taken.

Oral Clomid may be recommended by medical practitioners for treating an insufficiency in ovulation, hypothalamic pituitary gonadal axis function test, low sperm count, male infertility, and study of the function of the ovaries.

The substance name of Clomid is 2-[p-(2-chloro-1,2-diphenylvinyl)phenoxy] triethylamine citrate (1:1) and its molecular formula of C32H36ClNO8 (citrate) or C26H28ClNO. The antiestrogen has a half-life of 5-7 days, Clomid tablets include Clomiphene citrate USP as the active ingredient, and the list of inactive ingredients includes magnesium stearate, pregelatinized cornstarch, lactose, and cornstarch. It has the molecular weight of 598.09 g/mol at the base and it is a variety of geometrical isomers [cis (zuclomiphene) and trans (enclomiphene)] such as of abut 30-50 % of the cis-isomer.

In the world of professional sports dominated by use of steroids and performance improving drugs, Clomid is used by sportsmen for coming off their steroid cycles, safely and effectively. By reducing harmful effects caused by intense workouts on the muscles, Clomid helps sportsmen in limitless ways. The antiestrogen is also admired for its unique potential to reduce estrogenic side effects such as oily skin, acne, gynecomastia, and bloating besides restoring production of natural testosterone in as short as three to five weeks.

Clomid use is also related to dramatic improvements in terms of HPTA (hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal axis) by promoting the stimulation of more gonadotropin discharge from the pituitary to increase Luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). This gives a signal to the testes to produce more of testosterone, which proves extremely beneficial at the end of steroid cycles where production of testosterone, the primary male sex hormone, may get hampered due to use of some drugs. Clomid use can even enhance the count and fertility of male sperm to some extent.

The ideal dose of Clomid is 50 mg per day for a period of five weeks or as per medical advice. Clomid doses can be increased after medical evaluation and recommendation in case of women who do not ovulate in response to cyclic 50 mg Clomid dose. The maximum dose of Clomid is 100 mg daily for 5 days and the drug should not be used for more than three treatment cycles. Sportsmen can take the antiestrogen for a period of three or five weeks. It may be used 3 weeks after using Deca Durabolin, 3 weeks after using Sustanon 250, 2 weeks after using testosterone enanthate, 3 weeks after Trenbolone, 17-21 weeks after using Equipoise, 4-8 weeks after using Dianabol, 8-12 weeks after using Winstrol, and 3 weeks after using testosterone propionate.

Use of Clomid is not recommended to pregnant or lactating women or women who may become pregnant while taking Clomid. It is also not recommended to children or those suffering from high blood pressure, stroke, kidney damage, liver damage, prostate cancer, breast cancer, or testicular cancer. Clomid is also not recommended to those having allergy to Clomid or any of its ingredients.

Clomid use is not recommended to those who have a hormone-dependent tumor, experiencing abnormal vaginal bleeding of unknown cause, suffering from fibroid tumors of the uterus, have ovarian cysts (not associated with polycystic ovary), have liver disease or have had reduced liver function in the past, or suffering from thrombophlebitis (inflammation of a vein with formation of a blood clot).

Use of Clomiphene citrate should not be made by individuals suffering from high blood fats (cholesterol), bone problems (such as osteopenia, osteoporosis), stroke or blood clots, heart disease (such as chest pain, heart attack, heart failure), high blood pressure, kidney problems, and liver problems. Since Clomid is a prescription drug, its use and purchase should only be made after a qualified medical practitioner has recommended its use after a complete and careful evaluation of medical history and reports. The doses should not be increased in hopes of quick results. In case a dose has been missed, it should be ignored and the next dosage should be taken at its scheduled time.

In order to ensure the shelf life of research grade Clomid, it must be stored at a controlled room temperature of 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F) with excursions permitted to 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F) and kept away from unauthorized use, pets, sunlight, moisture, and children. In case of expired Clomid tablets, the same should be discarded after having a word with a pharmacist or local waste disposal company on how to safely discard Clomid.
