Studies have shown that Clomid when given to men will increase their testosterone level to that of high normal levels. As with all agents that increase testosterone, estrogen and DHT will also increase with Clomid. Thus, you still have to treat side effects of increasing testosterone and DHT.
The nice thing about Clomid is that is a pill. There is no injection and no creams. It is just a small simple pill to swallow every day. Clomid like HCG works on the brain to stimulate the testicles to produce its own testosterone. A small dose of oral Clomid will result in a dramatic increase in testosterone. Clomid allows the testicle to produce testosterone consistent with the body’s own physiological rhythm.
Based on the follow-up blood work the dose of Clomid can be increased or decreased. Some men need a very small dose and others may need more.
Clomid is an excellent option for men who don’t want to take injectable testosterone, topical testosterone, pellets and injectable HCG.
