What is Clomid?
Clomid is a powerful PCT (post-cycle therapy) drug. When a steroid user runs a cycle, their HPTA (Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular Axis) becomes suppressed; as a result, their body’s LH and FSH drop to almost zero and their body stops producing testosterone. Clomid stimulates the hypophysis to release more gonadotropins. Gonadotropins are protein hormones that are secreted by the pituitary gland, which stimulate a faster and higher release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). When an increase in gonadotropins happens, the rise in LH will spike up the total testosterone levels allowing the user to artificially maintain high testosterone levels until their own body is able to recover while maintaining gains. Clomid is often used in conjunction with HCG and Nolvadex to speed up post-cycle recovery.
Clomid is most often taken during PCT but it can also be taken during the actual cycle too. Depending on the anabolic steroid being taken, there can be risks of estrogenic effects such as gynecomastia. Clomid isn’t the most effective drug to help prevent this, but in some cases it can be very useful.
One of the benefits of Clomid is that within the liver it has an estrogenic effect which in turn can help to boost cholesterol levels in a positive way. This can be helpful in counteracting the adverse effects that anabolic steroids can have on the liver and cholesterol.
