Clomiphene Citrate is typically prescribed for women to aid in ovulation. In men, the application of Clomiplex causes an elevation of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. As a result, natural testosterone production is also increased.
This effect is obviously beneficial to the athlete, especially at the conclusion of a steroid cycle when endogenous testosterone levels are subnormal. When an athlete discontinues the use of steroids, his testosterone levels will most likely be suppressed. If endogenous testosterone levels are not brought to normal, a dramatic loss in size and strength may occur. Clomiplex plays a crucial role in preventing this crash in athletic performance.
Clomiphene must be taken by mouth exactly as directed by your doctor in order to be most effective. It is important to follow your dosing schedule carefully.Your dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Do not take it more often or for a longer time than prescribed by your doctor. Long-term treatment with this medication is not recommended and should not be more than 6 cycles.You may be directed to record your body temperature, perform ovulation tests, and properly time sexual intercourse for best results. Ask your doctor if you have any questions.

Women with ovulation problems include those with polycystic ovarian syndrome and some with unknown causes of amenorrhea. Clomiplex is only prescribed after a thorough evaluation of the menstrual cycle is done to determine where the problem occurs. To achieve ovulation with Clomiplex, timing is of great importance. The woman’s body temperature is monitored and blood work is done to determine if ovulation has occurred.
Once ovulation is established, Clomiplex is started. In general Clomiplex is started on or about the 5th day of the cycle. Clomiplex is generally administered for 3-6 cycles. Long term therapy is not recommended
Clomiplex is a very potent drug. However, with proper dose selection and short term therapy it can help infertile women. Clomiphene mimics estrogen in its actions. It has the ability to interacts with estrogen receptors in the hypothalamus and block these sites. The brain than thinks there is a low amount of estrone in the body and causes a surge in the levels of Gonadotropins which hyperstimulates the ovary to make more estrogen. This results in an increase in steroid synthesis in both the adrenal and ovaries. The surge in estrogen is important for fertilization to take place.
