Generally, how long does does it take for clomiphene to begin to raise testosterone levels? How long have you been using Fina? We have more on the way Similar to the chart displayed above, DAA definitely increases testosterone in men, but it will get back to baseline after a few weeks of non-use. May 23, at 7: Some of the reports I have read suggest that the effects of Clomid might initially work for a short period a matter of weeks and then subside. There are very few books that even remotely tackle the intricate process of cycling.
I did run a liver and kidney support too just FYI. As for My blood Work. I have had 4 blood tests on this cycle and everything has come back in range so I guess every "body" is different. And the HCG is a typo. Week Hcg iu a week. Week Hcg iu a week Week iu a week. You can run hcg at this level without being desensitized to LH. Thanks for your input. Quote posted by Big Mac Swole. If you were to read a little bit closer. How are those a staple for you if this is your first cycle?
PCT Heavy cycle Help, HCG Dosing So the argument here is that nolva increases the sensitivity to prolactin, and nors increase prolactin, thus increasing the risk of prolactin induced gyno which has happened with experienced users in the past. So some people say to only run clomid and some people say that they havent been affected by taking nolva for pct while using 19 nors.
So my next question is: Say I were to run both clomid and nolva for pct. If I include caber to minimize prolactin would it still be ok to run nolva for PCT. Or should I just stick with the clomid. By the time I hit pct I will have not been on deca or tren for about weeks so the levels there should be no problem with the amount of prolactin that is being produced correct.
If use letro wouldnt this be able to keep this problem from arising? If not I can always just run clomid. Again thanks for your input. Post a pic bro you must be a monster! Just run the clomid and maybe pick up some DAA. Aromasin throughout pct would be wise also to prevent any rebound or aromatization from hcg. You can carry on with caber into pct if you choose it may help keep that sex drive going Ride it like you stole it!!
If I feel the need would it be ok to add in nolva towards the end? I also have plenty of the natty test boosters along with some dhea. I am very hesitant to post a pic because I do not want to self incriminate myself. Sorry for the disappointment. I can tell you some other stats about me that might ease your mind though. I don't like any of those options you listed.. The largest bodybuilding archive in the world! By burrnelly in forum Anabolic Steroids.
Going Heavy - how often do you cycle? Am I dosing heavy enough on the fina? Enclomiphene Androxal is the trans-isomer of clomiphene. I keep reading about this drug Androxal, and it seems that the company that makes it, Repros, is in periodic financial difficulty. So getting the drug through the pipeline is going to be a while. Gotta love the market. This is especially important for men who want to father children. I am a doc who uses clomid to treat male hypogonadism.
Does it make sense to use Arimidex in men who fail to respond or respond suboptimaly? While the effects of clomiphene on the pituitary are similar in men and women, the target organs are obviously different, testes for the man and ovaries for the woman. My husband and i have had one child but it took 4 years his sperm levels are very low what can he take to get pregnant its been 7 years since my son was born and still nothing he also has sugar diabetes.
Please help i am really wanting to get pregnant again. Please read the FAQ. I have low testosterone level. My doc has prescibed both clomiphene and arimidex. Generally, how long does does it take for clomiphene to begin to raise testosterone levels? Does it act fairly quickly days or take a couple of weeks? I usually assess testosterone at two weeks to insure that enough time has passed. A question was asked earlier about whether it contraindicated to take testosterone and Clomid together.
It seems that Clomid would work in conjunction, not counter, to testosterone repleacement therapy. Have you prescribed both concurrently? The use of the two together has not been investigated and reported in the typical manner, and I would be hesitant to draw conclusions based on studies of each individually. Have there been any studies, where no sperm was present in the semen, to find sperm after taking clomid or clomiphene?
In fact, our study suggests that about two-thirds of men with no sperm in their ejaculate will have sperm appear with clomiphene treatment. Typically men who have had a vasectomy have good sperm production. If, after vasectomy reversal, a hormonal problem is discovered, then clomiphene may help. Based on your knowledge, what in your opinion would be the most effective regimen for best results and the least side effects with clomid.
Followed by how long off? I guess concerning best results, raise in testosterone, sperm count, and motility. Also is there a high success rate in pregnancies from the use of clomid? My Hubby recently had a semen analysis done. His results were Would you recommend clomid as a good treatment to increase his sperm count? Can you tell me if astheno teratozoospermia is directly linked to alcohol intake, or cigarrette use? That is a really great question. Read my post about sperm shape to get an idea of the difficulties we face correlating sperm shape to anything at all.
As for medications, alcohol and cigarettes, I was just today asked by a patient about medications and thought, what a great idea for a post on Maledoc! So certainly clomiphene may increase LH above the normal range, if normal is defined in this way. Not being able to get a script for clomid for men is just not true. It means that the doctor is prescribing a medication for a condition which is not listed in the package insert, which the FDA regulates.
Good evening and congratulations for the website. I have two questions: Hi Nellie, this really feels like a patient-specific question. Yes, you are right, that was a loaded question. My husband has been seeing a urologist and … well, you can gather the results. We have an appointment with a fertility specialist, but would she be able to assist in male reproductive issues?
Pituitary response is quick, within a matter of days. Sperm production lags, for the reasons described in this post. A common theme seems to be that although Clomid can raise the levels in a clinical sense, the associated benefits such as improved cognitive function, energy levels and sex drive as well as reduced body fat and increased lean body mass are not as pronounced as when testosterone levels are raised by the application of bio-identical testosterone.
Based on your experience of treating patients with low testosterone with clomiphene citrate, what are your thoughts on this? No one has done that yet to my knowledge, and as a result saying one is better is pure speculation. My experience reflects this belief, but then again, to prove it would require that study. Also, what are your thoughts on combining drugs such as arimidex with clomid to counteract the rise in oestrogen levels? The reason I ask is that anecdotal evidence seems to suggest that the use of Clomid in men may cause them to feel more emotional and this could be related to a rise in oestrogen.
Would you say the changes are generally great or small, or somewhere in between be specific: Hi Colin, for the first question: I mainly use the testosterone to estradiol ratio, which should be greater than ten to one, to consider anastrozole as a treatment option. As anastrozole alone is effective in increasing testosterone, I do not generally prescribe it with clomiphene. For the third question: Many factors change it beyond hormonal ones.
Hi Michelle, check out our Google knol. It has a lot of information about female reproductive care there. Take a look at the results, and let me know what the good ones are! Hi maledoc, I have spent hours reading forums and have had trouble finding out if any of this treatment is permanent. I am aware by just my reading that in theory, clomid would likely increase the testosterone.
The question becomes whether or not one could argue that this product has potential to kick testosterone into gear and restore the glands normal function, or if the clomids only purpose to achieve temporary restoration, and upon ceasing treatment production will go right back to where it was prior to taking the medication. I understand completely that you can only speculate, I would appreciate that greatly as I have no other source of information. Whether men need to have clomiphene or HCG long term depends on their own body chemistry and how long they were taking testosterone.
When you prescribe a clomiphene treatment to those men who need to stop testosterone therapy how long do you have them wait after stopping testosterone therapy before starting the clompihene? Do you still see the testosterone level rise within weeks as you typically see? I urge you to see a physician who specializes in male reproductive medicine. Investigators have conducted a number of studies, but few are double blind placebo-controlled, and they seem to be split on the effect on sperm.
Another problem is that past studies did not say whether the men had low testosterone levels before taking clomiphene. Question on symptoms of low testosterone in the men you have treated not clomid specific so apologies if it is not relevant to this forum …. Do you find that a symptom of low testosterone is that the men experience thinning or lost hair.
Do you find that raising the levels causes hair to thicken or grow back where it had gone. I am talking about hair on top of the head! Hi Colin, if a man has the right genetics, hair follicles on the head kick out hairs when they see good testosterone levels. Thanks for answering all of my queries. Hi Sharif, this really feels like a personal question. My ever increasing knowledge of the effects of clomiphene citrate on treating low testosterone has raised another question which I hope you can answer:.
Some of the reports I have read suggest that the effects of Clomid might initially work for a short period a matter of weeks and then subside. Have you found this to be the case in your experience with some of your patients? If so, are there any reasons why this may happen and anything that can be done to avoid it? Does taking Clomid for men lead to increased risk of twins, triplets, etc.?
If so, then how long would you recommend stopping usage before that risk decreases? Twins and triplets, etc. Opioid induced hypoandrogenism can be very difficult to treat, and clomiphene may be a part of the solution depending on the nature of the specific case. The best strategy is to wean from opioid use if at all possible.
