I too have been running the clomid at 50mg EOD...cant really say yet if its gonna work though. I started the clomid 2 weeks into my cycle and I'm at about 4 weeks now. My nuts are a little shrunken I think. I should have started it at the beginning since I am running prop and just finished up the dbol, oh well.
clomid will do absolutely nothing for lh and endo test while there is enough exogenous test available. i can back this up with blood works... my fsh was changed though, and the size of the balls too, but dont expect anything in regards to lh and endo test.
Because plasma circulating estrogen has many benefits. Besides an increase in IGF-1 from passing through the liver it also does many other good things like making androgen receptor sites more sensitive, etc... Estrogen is your friend not your enemy but you must keep it under control. I like to keep my estrogen levels fairly high at the beginning of my cycles and throw in the AI's later. And I was wondering if clomid would keep you from getting gyno as I'm very gyno prone and nothing seems to work for me to BLOCK the gyno and I always end up having to use an AI sooner than I want to. The time I tried clomid for this reason, I never did it on an everyday basis which I should have...
clomid should help you about gyno but its not that effective as nolva in that regard. i would say maybe 50mg clomid is as effective as 10mg nolva. as wolf said if you want to stimulate endo test then clomid, if for gyno nolva or aromasin
Though I like Clomid, I just feel better on it, Nolva is a far more active estrogen in the liver than Clomid and is credited with having a better effect on the lipid profile. It is supposed to be sort of tissue specific in its competetive binding, but apparently not the case in the liver, where it acts like estrogen.
And I hear you on using the AI. I like the waterless look, but with the lower doses Im running, Im gonna try another route like Proviron on cycle with an AI at the end of the cycle to kill off as much E2 as possible. Want to avoid rebound during PCT. AI's work great for killing the estrogen during the cycle, but my libido along with it.
Personally I like to take clomid over nolva also, because of nolva's suppressing of IGF-1 even though nolva is the superior of the two. Would there be many sides or disadvantages to taking a higher amount of clomid, say 100mg/day besides the lipids profile? Now what about toremifene (fareston)? Would that work the same as Clomid or nolva for gyno too? I took toremifene at 60mg/day for gyno prevention and it did nothing on an adrol/test c cycle.
