Heavy Testosterone suppression is the bane of many bodybuilders taking PEDs (Performance Enhancing Drugs), and that’s why strong compounds like Clomid are there to help alleviate the negative effects offset by these substances.
That’s why people opt for Clomid, a substance which is better at that task, but carries more side effects as we’ll later see.
Let’s take a closer look at Clomid and see what the ruckus is all about.
At the end of this article, I will also show you where to buy pure Clomid at a rock-bottom price.

What is Clomid
Clomiphene, better known for its trade name, Clomid, is a non-steroidal SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator) that affects the inner workings of our GnRH, which causes it to release more FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) and LH (Luteinizing Hormone) into our body from the anterior pituitary.
An increase in FSH and LH facilitates the increase of our Testosterone levels; something sought after by bodybuilders, especially when Testosterone suppression from PEDs is concerned.
Besides increasing the two hormones mentioned above, it also binds to the estrogen receptors, which makes it a great aid for treating infertility, both in women and in men, since excessive estrogen is known to cause issues with our reproductive system.
Clomid prevents that by stopping estrogen from reaching the pituitary gland, where estrogen acts as an antagonist.
Clomid is quite strong and as we’ll later see, it has some side effects you should be wary of, but the results it procures are very good and most bodybuilders recover from heavy SARM or steroid abuse within just a month.
Clomid Legal Status
Clomid is FDA approved for the treatment of female infertility, but little to no studies have been done on its effects on Testosterone suppression, which is a damn shame, since anecdotal reports have shown marvelous results from Clomid usage.
You can’t buy it over the counter but have to have a prescription from your doctor to get it.
The same problem as with Nolvadex – your doctor is unlikely to prescribe Clomid to you, since it’s usually only reserved for women.
Don’t worry, I’ll show you a good source of Clomid by the end of this article, you won’t have to go through any hoops, and it will be as easy as taking candy from a baby.
Clomid usually comes in pill form and is taken orally as it has good bioavailability. The most common denominators of Clomid that you’ll find are 25, 50 and 100mg pills.
Experts are unsure what the proper Clomid dosage should be. Some of them recommend 25mgs a day, while others bolster that number up to 300mgs a day.
Luckily for us, we have tons of reports from bodybuilders that served as guinea pigs, and the best daily Clomid dosage that has been reported is 25 to 50mgs a day for males.
Your dosage will depend on the severity of Testosterone suppression experienced from either YK11 or S23.
The thing is, SARMs and other PEDs don’t suppress people equally.
I’ve read and heard about tons of people that went through a YK11 cycle without feeling suppressed at all!
On the other side of the coin, there exists a small portion of bodybuilders that had to stop taking the SARM in question by week three as they got heavily suppressed.
In the next chapter, I’ll show you to properly use Clomid and how to properly gouge what type of PCT regimen you need for your cycle.
How To Use Clomid After SARMs
If you’re going to use SARMs like YK11 and S23, you better prepare yourself for a lot of blood tests.
I know that some people reading this are deployed and that they can’t really take a blood test, but to be 100% sure as to what type of regimen with Clomid you should take, you really do need to perform a blood test.
It’s best to do one before and after your cycle, so that you can accurately note the differences between your hormones.
If you experience a drop of 20% or less in your hormone levels (such as FSH, LH…), refer to the following table as to what to do:
It’s important to keep taking Clomid each and every day for four weeks. You’ll find articles on the internet claiming that Clomid should be taken once every five days or once every other day, but they are not cognizant of the fact that this only applies to women who have infertility issues and not bodybuilders.
Bodybuilders can take Clomid every day without experiencing any problems, save from the side effects of the medication itself.
Moving on, if your hormone levels dropped by 20% or more, go with the following protocol:
Keep in mind that you have to drop your dosage by 25mgs at the ten-week mark. That’s very important, as it helps mitigate the negative side effects of the medication.
It’s best to start your PCT 24 hours after your last SARM dosage. That will ensure that the SARM itself is eliminated from the bloodstream and that you can safely proceed with your PCT.
Clomid Side Effects
Clomid has more side effects than Nolvadex and they’re stronger in nature, but if you take it in the recommended dosages and don’t cycle it for longer than four weeks, you shouldn’t have much trouble with the adverse effects.
Here are the common side effects of Clomid:
- Upset Stomach
- Hot Flashes
- Mood Swings
- Discomfort in The Breast Area
More serious side effects that are albeit rare:
- Changes in Vision
- Changes in Personality
- Shortness of Breath
- Chest Pain
As we can see, Clomid is a bit more dangerous than Nolvadex, but it is necessary to take it after SARMs like YK 11 or S23 to fully recover.
Most people tolerate it quite well and experience only one or two of the milder side effects, nausea and headaches being the most common among the lot.
Where to Buy Clomid
I keep an up-to-date (updated on a weekly basis) list of the best PCT companies to buy from.
Just like with SARMs, most companies selling PCT products are selling bunk products that won’t really do anything. That is why I recommend buying Clomid (or other PCT supplements) from my list of recommended PCT companies.
If you have any questions about a particular vendor or source, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I always respond in a matter of a day or two.
Clomid is a great SERM to use after a strong SARM cycle. It will facilitate Testosterone production, lower estrogen dominance in the body and help you recover from Testosterone suppression that much faster.
It does have its negative sides, but it’s completely worth it in my opinion, as you’re able to preserve most of your muscle and reach a comfortable level of hormones – all in just a month.
To conclude, use Clomid with care, be aware of its safety profile and make sure to stick to the recommended dosages and guidelines.
