Long-Term Use of Clomid or Nolvadex to Increase Testosterone Levels




There has been an on-going debate about the prolonged use of either Clomid and Nolvadex amongst steroid junkies.

What are Clomid and Nolvadex?

What are Clomid and Nolvadex?

Both Clomid and Nolvadex are two very popular SERMs or Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators. These drugs often recommends in:

  • Fertility programs for both male and female patients
  • Supplemental plan for the performing athletes and
  • Mostly during the Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) of anabolic steroid users.

Out of these, we are going to study the long-term use of these drugs amongst the anabolic steroid users.

What is the Function of Nolvadex and Clomid During PCT?

Nolvadex and Clomid are used for two purposes during the PCT

  • To enhance and to trigger the natural production of testosterone in the body Clomid or Nolvadex for testosterone use.
  • To retrieve the body to homeostasis.

What Happens to Testosterone During Steroid Cycle?

               A steroid is a kind of pre-hormone injecting synthetic testosterone supplement into the body. As the body recognizes this exogenous compound to be an androgenic hormone, it quickly shuts down the production of its own androgenic hormone (testosterone) to avoid the risk of overproduction or accumulation in the body.

           This is the negative feedback that is triggered indigenously and inadvertently. The user is not alarmed by the temporarily low testosterone level because it is provided for by the drug. Both androgenic and anabolic qualities are sometimes gained at the same time during the on cycle.

           However, the user will go into low testosterone levels when the supply of the steroid is inhibited at the end of the cycle. Low testosterone levels could mean a lot of things for the guy. For example,

  • Reduced sex drive
  • Depression
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Increase in fatty weight gain and
  • Balding of head amongst others.

        Consistent use of these steroids that depress the production of testosterone could also lead to the increase in Estrogen levels leading to woman-like characteristics like an increase in the size of man-boobs.

Role of Nolvadex and Clomid in PCT

Role of Nolvadex and Clomid in PCT

          Post cycle therapy is the period off of steroids to give the time to the body to reach the hormonal equilibrium and maintain homeostasis. This also means neutralizing the levels of testosterone in the body so that the negative side effects of the steroid can be diminished. Most men face a lot of difficulty during PCT which means that their body is either taking a long time to bring the things back to normal or is being incapable of catalyzing the production of Testosterone.

            These are the cases in which Nolvadex and Clomid are recommended by the doctors and peers for the people who are on steroids. Both of these drugs are strong compounds and therefore good choices as far as releasing the Luteinizing Hormone (LH)  into the blood is concerned.

            This hormone works to promote the steady production of Testosterone in the body. These drugs  also prescribes as an anti-estrogen and an HDL cholesterol supporter within the body. This is why some steroid users often use it during the cycle too.

Harms of Prolonging the Use of Nolvadex and Clomid

          Both Nolvadex and Clomid are carcinogenic in their properties and therefore are never recommended for prolonged use. There has been a limited study about the daily use of Clomid for over a year in men to combat infertility successfully but the results cannot be generalized.

          So far only a few weeks per year during the PCT is the recommended dosage of both Nolvadex or Clomid in steroid users to bring their testosterone up to normal levels. Depending upon the nature of the individual case, the risk over benefit has to be assessed.


       As long as the moderate use of Clomid and Nolvadex is ensured it will have a good influence on testosterone level, hence you will build muscle fast. Unlike other drugs this mix should not be used by the principle the more you take, the higher gains will be achieved. A range of side effects at the corner and come into play once the threshold passes. Dosage them as lower as possible and take a close eye on signs you body shows. 

         When something bad noticed to happen to your body, stop the use. If there is good news with taking steroids then this is the fact that any side effect disappears once consumption ceases.

    It was my understanding that Clomid and Nolvadex work differently, but basically block the FSH and LH feed back control to stop feed back loop, thus allowing for unlimited FSH and LH production out of the pituitary. And with the continued production of FSH and LH, testosterone is manufactured continuously. I am wondering can the pituitary get overworked? And thus cause pituitary failure due to overworking?
