Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate) is a powerfully effective anti-estrogen officially classified as a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM). In many ways, it is very similar to another popular SERM in Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate). Clomifene Citrate first gained worldwide attention in the early 1970’s as a strong fertility aid and is still used for that purpose today. It is also one of the most commonly used SERM’s by anabolic steroid users. No, it is not an anabolic steroid but can be used to combat estrogenic side effects sometimes caused by anabolic steroid . It can also be used as a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) medication in order to stimulate suppressed test production due to anabolic steroid use. PCT use of Clomifene Citrate is the most common purpose and most beneficial point of use for the anabolic steroid user.
Clomifene Citrate is an excellent SERM and for years there has been an ongoing debate among anabolic steroid users as to which SERM is better, Clomifene or Nolvadex. For the purpose of on cycle gynecomastia protection either one can work. Some have reported that Nolvadex tends to do a better job, but you may need to try both at different times to make an accurate assessment. Then we have PCT use, and both are equally effective and important. Many loudly claim Nolvadex is a far superior SERM for PCT purposes; however, there is a common problem with this statement. Most who use Clomid don’t use enough. On a milligram for milligram basis Nolvadex is stronger, so if you don’t plan a Clomid dose to match Nolvadex you’re going to be disappointed in the Clomifene Citrate. Learn and understand the SERM’s and various items before you use them. Understand proper dosing protocols and you’ll get the most out of Clomid and any SERM you use.
