Clomifen is referred to anti-estrogens medicaments, because it blocks estrogens that arise from aromatization. It is always used as a stimulant for the production of own testosterone in human organism. By its anti-estrogenic properties this preparation is weaker than such other drugs as Proviron. When taking Clomifen the level of testosterone is normalized within 10-14 days.
When taking the drug, muscle mass and physical strength increases, the body fat content decreases and sexual function becomes better.
The drug is taken orally and has selective anti-estrogen properties. Despite its benefits, Clomifen has been found to have a few negative impacts on health. Clomifen increases the levels of globulin in the body. Clomifen has an impact on the globulin level which is related to testosterone and as result, it gives a negative effects on the weight gain. Furthermore, prolonged usage of Clomifen might lead to visual impairment.
Clomifen acts by blocking the estrogen receptors found in the pituitary gland and the ovaries in women. At the same time Clomifen also restores the levels of testosterone to optimal concentrations in the body. This way Clomifen allows the athlete to keep estrogen levels extremely low, thus preventing the undesirable estrogenic side effects like gynecomastia, acne, female pattern fat deposition, and alopecia.
Many people know that after the androgenic course it is necessary to restore the functions of the genital organs by the chorionic gonadotropin taking. It happens because in the fact, that changes in the concentration of the hormone in the blood leads to a change in the activity of the hypothalamus, which secretes the liberins. This modifies the synthesis of the tropic hormone of the pituitary gland, and the activity of the corresponding peripheral gland. Increased concentration in the blood of the hormone leads to a decrease or even a blockade of regulatory hormones secretion.
Modern preparates have considerable similarity with testosterone and while getting into the body block the activity of the entire system. At the same time, the production of gonadotropins, gonado-liberins and own testosterone decreases. To prevent this effect, it is necessary to take gonadotropin during the course. Clomifen immediately acts on estrogen receptors and blocks them. It acts as an antagonist of estrogens by eliminating their inhibitory effect on the pituitary and hypothalamus, providing a faster recovery of their functions.
Very rarely a visual impairment can occur, expressed in the vagueness of the image. In this case you have to immediately stop taking Clomifen.
The violations of the liver work can occur too but in very rare cases.
Women are at an increased risk of a multi-egg pregnancy, ovaries can increase, that may be accompanied by pain in the abdomen.
Clomifen inhibits the negative effect of steroids on the sportsman’s body. It also does not have gesta-genic and androgenic activity.
The drug stimulates an increase in the number of follicle-stimulating and luteinizing hormone in the blood, as a result – an increase in the level of endogenous testosterone and an increase of the steroids effectiveness.

It is recommended to start with 100 mg per day, taking 50 mg after meals in the morning, and 50 mg in the evening.
