Administration for Men:
In men, clomiphene citrate also acts as a partial anti-estrogen, and may be used to counter some of the side effects of aromatizable steroid use including gynecomastia and increased water retention. As an anti-estrogenic drug, clomiphene citrate may also produce an elevation of follicle stimulating hormone, and luteinizing hormone levels, which can elevate testosterone production. This effect is especially beneficial at the conclusion of a steroid cycle, when endogenous testosterone levels are depressed. Here, clomiphene citrate is most often applied in combination with hCG and tamoxifen, in an effort to restore endogenous testosterone production more quickly (see PCT: Post-Cycle Therapy). If testosterone levels are not brought back to normal in a short period of time, a significant loss in size and strength may occur. This is due to the fact that without testosterone (or other anabolic/androgenic steroids) to impart an ongoing anabolic message, the catabolic hormone cortisol becomes the dominant force affecting muscle protein synthesis. Often referred to as the post-steroid crash, when not corrected this state of imbalance in the endocrine system can quickly reduce muscle mass levels, diminishing the long-term return on anabolic/androgenic steroid therapy.
When used by men to mitigate the estrogenic side effects of anabolic/androgenic steroid use, a daily dosage of 50-100 mg (1-2 tablets) is usually administered while any offending steroids are taken. Note, however, that tamoxifen is usually given preference over clomiphene citrate for this purpose. More commonly, clomiphene citrate is used by men at a dosage of 50-100 mg per day for 30 days at the conclusion of a steroid cycle, in an effort to bring natural testosterone production back to normal levels. Here, it is usually deemed most appropriate to use as part of a multi-component postcycle recovery program (see PCT: Post-Cycle Therapy).
Administration for Women:
Female athletes occasionally use clomiphene citrate for the reduction of estrogenicity near the time of a bodybuilding contest. In some instances this may aid in increasing fat loss and muscularity, particularly in female trouble areas such as the hips and thighs. The drug, however, often produces very troubling side effects in premenopausal women, and is likewise not in very high demand among this group.
