Starting Clomid today

Starting Clomid today

I’m heading to the doctor today to finally deal with my low testosterone issue. My low T is not the normal brand. It’s caused by low gonadotropins, so is best treated with fertility meds to boost the low gonadotropins. My doc suggested at the last visit that we would do a sperm analysis today, and then most likely begin treatment with Clomid.

I’m just wondering who else is on Clomid and what kind of effects I can expect.

It is a kind of medicine used for PCT by steroid users, so a good amount of people should be familiar with it. I heard tamoxifen or nolvadex costs less and works just as fine, but I have no direct experience neither I am a doc.

Yeah, most of the research I’ve found is from steroid users for PCT. The cost for me is only $15 with insurance, so that’s not bad. My doc has a lot of guys on Clomid for fertility and/or low testosterone, so he’s really comfortable with it. He even has many that are on it for life for treatment of low T. I just started last night, so I’m hoping that I’ll have some good results.

Anyone else with experience? I’m hoping the results start soon, but doc told me not to expect anything for about a month.

I started on it about a month ago for the same issues. They found the low T on a blood test. I wasn’t feeling most of the normal symptoms associated with low T.

At my dose (50mg every other day),I haven’t noticed much of anything.but no negative side effects either.

Any changes yet? Have you had your bloodwork redone since starting? What dose are you on?

Midthigh, can you please update us on your experience with clomid? Any issues or side effects? Any increase in load or virility?

Yes, an update would be nice.

Clomid is/was the wrong approach for someone with supposedly “low testosterone” with no history or other lab results. What is “low gonadotropins”? That’s way too generic. Dealing with hormones is complex, in large part due to feedback mechanisms. Everything affects everything else, and properly dealing with an actual problem involves determining what exactly is failing, then addressing the problem itself and other issues from there.

Here, just take this, is all too common, and often very wrong.

Just a heads up.

Thanks for the concern @hobby. The approach was very well researched and was not just due to the low T. I worked with a Urologist who specializes in male fertility and is very knowledgeable of the endocrine system. I did not go into this blind at all.

All that said, the Clomid was very successful at raising my testosterone. Once the test went up I also saw an increase in estrogen as expected, and that was kept under control with Arimidex. The combination worked very well at keeping my test elevated and my estrogen in check. The unfortunate thing is that the increased testosterone did not have an impact on my constant fatigue, so the low T wasn’t the cause of that as suspected. I’ve since stopped taking both the Clomid and Arimidex since this past January since the primary reason I was trying to raise my T was to get rid of the constant fatigue. I go back to the urologist for a follow up in a few weeks so I’m sure he’ll order some more labs and see where we stand now.

On a good note, I started a weight training routine about a month ago and have been lifting 6 days a week for the past month. That seems to have made the biggest difference in my well being. I’m seeing good changes in my body and my fatigue during the day is starting to settle down. I’m also sleeping better at night, which helps significantly with the feeling tired during the day.

Actually, high levels of T are often linked to lethargia and fatigue.

And so are low levels. The only thing to go on is to see if a change either way affects the symptoms. In my case, it did not, so my T levels weren’t the culprit.

That being said, low T levels are linked to all kinds of other risk factors for heart disease and osteoporosis, so they should be checked if there’s any concern you might be low.

I found that it gave me acne on my back. Some serious angry pimples. As for libido it didn’t seem to do much. Likewise in the gym. Not my PCT choice either.

What works for me and my libido is Proviron. Better than any supplement around.

I can’t make the claim my dick rises like a teenager when taking Proviron but it is by far easier to get a non Viagra erection on the stuff than off.

Proviron doesn’t raise T though, just adds DHT in your blood. It’s not useful for restoration of endogenous testosterone production, although has side effetcs.

If you want strong erections and lasting longer consider just injecting test or trenbolone ?

Also I’ve used clomid and nolva as pct before, nolva is alot better and strong wood.

Testosterone will shut down your endogenous T production, using trenbolone to raise sexual function is plain retarded since it has also a progestinic effect which cause the s.c. ‘trena-dick’.

HRT is something that should be adviced by a doctor with specific knowledge of the patient, let’s avoid giving very dubious advices.

I had really strong erections while running Test Cypionate. But I don’t know if this was the aim for OP.
