Clomiphene in bodybuilding is an extremely popular and widely used drug as a first aid kit for bodybuilders running anabolic and androgenic steroids (AAS). This is a fertility drug for women who ended up very popular in bodybuilding settings and most specifically, as a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) medication.
In this article about Clomiphene bodybuilding uses you’re going to find valuable information about this compound.
What is Clomid – Clomiphene Citrate?
Clomiphene Citrate is the full name of the active ingredient in the brand Clomid. It may be sold as other trade names too.
- This is a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM) pretty much as Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate), hence they are both anti-estrogens and with similar mechanisms of action. Although there are other anti estrogens such as Anastrozole, Letrozole and Exemestane – these ones are Aromatase Inhibitors, hence different in mechanism of anti estrogenic action.
This is a medication used in medical settings for treatment of infertility in women mostly, but it has various other uses.
Nonetheless, Clomiphene is nowadays extremely popular in bodybuilding settings. It can be used for helping anabolic steroid users to deal with estrogen related side effects caused by steroids during the cycle and also for stimulating the internal testosterone production after the anabolic steroid cycle ended as a PCT drug. That’s because steroids are suppressing natural testosterone production.
Since Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate) is a weak drug for dealing with estrogen related issues during cycle (and availability of other compounds that are doing a better job), Clomiphene in bodybuilding is mostly used for Post Cycle Therapy because is one of the best compounds in existence to help recover back natural hormonal balance.

Clomid in Medical Settings
As said, this compound is mostly offered as prescription to infertile women. The compound helps them ovulate. It has many various uses such as infertile men, alternative to HRT etc. If Clomid (Clomiphene) is needed for health conditions – use it exactly as recommended by the doctor.
Clomid in Bodybuilding During Cycle
Clomiphene Citrate has some anti-estrogenic properties that are helpful for bodybuilders and athletes who are on steroids. That’s because a part of testosterone they receive from anabolic steroids is converted into estrogen.
- Increased levels of estrogen leads to various estrogen related side effects such as gynecomastia, water retention, high blood pressure, emotional side effects and others.
Nonetheless, serious steroid users suggest that Clomid is not very effective in protecting against the side effects of steroids associated with high estrogen levels. They are suggesting that aromatase inhibitors are doing a better job in such needs.
Clomiphene in Bodybuilding as a PCT
By far most often, Clomiphene in bodybuilding is used by those athletes after they had a cycle with anabolic steroids. Clomid is used as a Post Cycle Therapy after the use of steroids.
Anabolic steroids are known to suppress natural testosterone production and if no PCT is implemented, there are high chances of receiving nasty symptoms from low testosterone levels.
Clomiphene is used for speeding up the recovery of natural testosterone production after they were suppressed by anabolic steroids during the cycle.
Clomid dosage depends on suppression degree and the degree of suppression depends on the type of steroids, their dosage as well as the cycle length. The harsher the anabolic steroid cycle, the more PCT you need and therefore, more Clomid dosage.
Mostly dosage is started at 50 mg a day and then slowly reduced (as body regains back the ability to produce testosterone). For more serious cycles, Clomid dosage is started at 100 mg or even 150 mg a day. In extremely rare situations, some people go for 200 mg a day of Clomid and then reduce. We do not recommend higher doses than 200 mg a day.
Very often, Clomiphene is used alongside Tamoxifen Citrate (Nolvadex). With this being said, the compound is used as a PCT with Clomid.
A very common PCT plan goes as:
First 2 weeks: 50 mg a day Clomid and 40 mg a day Nolvadex, last 2 weeks (total 4 weeks): 25 mg a day Clomid and 20 mg a day Nolvadex. But as mentioned, the cycle can be changed depending on various factors such as steroid cycle harshness, personal response to these drugs etc.
Rarely someone goes for Clomiphene alone or Tamoxifen alone.
Too high doses of Clomid can be associated with side effects, but when used properly, Clomiphene in bodybuilding is meant to deal with side effects, not offer you new ones.
