Clomiphene citrate

This Post is also available in: German

Clomiphene citrate is a widely used medicine used to induce ovulation in women with childhood and to treat certain disorders of ovarian function even after discontinuation of the antibiotic.

Clomiphene citrate is usually prescribed to women to help ovulation (ovulation).

Clomiphene citrate causes gonadotrophin-producing cells to be predicted of sexual hormone deficiency.
For this, Clomiphene binds to the steroid receptor without triggering it and blocks it for the corresponding steroid (testosterone or estrogen).

Clomiphene citrate activates the natural biofeedback mechanism in the brain. This activates the secretion of the body’s follicle-stimulating hormones (FSH) such as glycoprotein.

Clomiphene citrate thus provides for an increase in the follicle stimulating hormone and the luteinizing hormone (LH), which leads to follicular maturation and triggering of ovulation in women.

In men, the luteinizing hormone stimulates the testes between the testes and regulates the androgen biosynthesis of the testis. This effect is particularly beneficial for the bodybuilder at the end of a steroid cure, when the endogenous testosterone production is below average.

If without the addition of synthetic testosterone, the testosterone levels would drop far below normal, the bodybuilder would lose mass and strength very quickly.

The release of the luteinizing hormone from the anterior and middle parts of the pituitary front lobe is controlled by the LH releasing hormone or factor from the hypothalamus.

Clomiphene gradually increases the testosterone level over the period of administration. ItĀ also appears to be effective as an anti-estrogen. Most bodybuilders suffer from “aromatization” of steroids under an elevated estrogen level at the end of a cure.

A high estrogen level in association with a low testosterone level increases the risk of developing gynecomastia. The use of clomiphen can be counteracted.
