Clomiphene citrate is a non-steroidal drug of synthetic origin, classified for its anti-estrogen characteristics. This drug has received the widest distribution both in medicine and in heavy sports. Therefore, in medical practice, Clomiphene is used as a stimulant for ovulation.
Having a partial structural similarity with the hormone estrogen, the anti-estrogen clomiphene citrate can bind to estrogen receptors in the hypothalamus. Because of this, there is a large production of FSH and LH gonadotropins, which in turn activates the secretion of the hormone testosterone in the male body and estrogen in the female.
Characteristics of the drug
The main feature of Clomid 50mg is that it not only fights excess estradiol in the blood by blocking the receptors of this hormone, but also helps restore the level of luteinizing hormone in the body of men. A lyutenizing hormone is the key link in the male body's production of its own testosterone.
Another interesting distinctive feature of clomid is that under certain conditions it is not an inhibitor, but an activator of estrogen receptors, it all depends on the fact that a certain cofactor joins the estrogen receptor at the same time as clomid. The type of cofactor depends on the type of takna, in other words, in some tissues (hypothalamus, mammary glands) Clomiphene citrate (Clomid) acts as an estrogen receptor blocker, which is very desirable, in others (bone tissue), such as an activator of the same receptors, which is also not superfluous, helps to avoid osteoporosis.
Clomid can be used throughout the "steroid" cycle, but basically this drug is used at the end of taking steroids. The usual daily dose is one tablet containing 50 mg of active ingredient, in critical cases this dose can be doubled. For women, the intake of clomid is limited to a period of two weeks followed by a break of the same duration, men can take this drug without the slightest break throughout the year.
