It will be almost all but completely shut off, in theory. Clomid doses in comparison to Nolvadex, for example, will normally need to be in the higher range in order for the compound to do its job in the body, as it is not as powerful as its brother compound Nolvadex, and this will be explained shortly. See injection preparation and execution. After a Non-Aromatizing cycle. This method should prove effective.
The biggest pit fall many people encounter when using a cycle of steroids is the course of action taken once the cycle is complete. Many people will start a cycle without fully researching the topic of steroid cycling for bodybuilders, and the intricate details seem to get left behind. Bodybuilders and weight lifting enthusiasts in gyms around the world will hop on a cycle of steroids without even knowing what the word Anti-estrogen means although more and more people are starting to see the merit of using these drugs and when the side effects hit, all the blame goes to the drugs that they took and not the fact that they poorly planed their cycle.
Every cycle you embark on should be properly planed for the goals that you wish to achieve, and you should also have the necessary drugs for post cycle and also during cycle for estrogen control. This will make a difference like night and day compared to using steroids without any auxiliary drugs. When finishing your cycle an anti-estrogen should continue to be used during your recovery phase because of the fact that your testosterone levels will be very low at this point, and you will have an elevated level of estrogen hormone in your system.
By using an anti-estrogen during this time, you will be able to keep your estrogen levels to a minimum so you will avoid post cycle side effects such as water retention, gynecomastia, depression, sickness, and acne. At the same time you must employ a drug to help raise your testosterone levels to a normal level as quickly as possible. By using a drug for this purpose you will be able to retain the majority of your gains made on your cycle when the cycle is complete, and avoid the loss of gains from coming off AAS.
In this article I will outline the different drugs used for the two purposes mentioned above. The first is Anti-Estrogens rated from the most effective, to the least effective. I will then discuss the two drugs used to raise testosterone levels back to normal. And finally I will outline a few different post cycle protocols that will help you minimize side effects from your cycle, and also help you to keep your gains made while on ASS while avoiding the dreaded "post cycle crash.
Arimidex's mechanism of action is by blocking the aromatize enzyme, which will block the production of the hormone estrogen. This drug is also used for the weeks after your cycle while on a post cycle therapy regimen for the same purpose for using it while on the AAS. If it is being used everyday most bodybuilders will use.
This will vary if you are using other anti-estrogens while using the Arimidex, and also the amount you are willing to use due to the cost of the drug. Femara has very similar characteristics as Arimidex, but some believe that it is more effective at estrogen control. Most users report no water retention what so ever while using this drug, and in some studies it is shown to slightly raise IGF-1 levels, unlike a drug like Nolvadex, which has been shown to decrease them slightly.
The normal dose for Femara is 2. When this problem arises many male bodybuilders will use Nolvadex to combat feminization symptoms such as gynecomastia, increased fat deposition, and also high levels of water retention. For the most part though, Nolvadex is used to prevent gynecomastia build up. This is because Nolvadex acts on the estrogen receptors of the effected body tissue, so in turn it will prevent the bonding on the estrogen hormone to the receptor on the tissue. Unlike Arimidex and Femara, Nolvadex does not act as an anti-aromatize drug, but rather acts as an estrogen antagonist.
This drug will not prevent the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. It will only fight it at the receptor level. This right here goes to show why drugs like Arimidex and Femara are far more superior drugs to use during a cycle than Nolvadex. Nolvadex is a very effective drug to use when discontinuing your steroid cycle due to the fact that it will help reduce the side effects from the elevated levels of estrogen in your body. When you come of steroids the relationship between the levels of testosterone compared to estrogen become "out of whack" so to speak.
Since you have discontinued the steroids your testosterone levels will become severely reduced, which in turn will raise your estrogen levels to become the dominant hormone in your system. This is a very good time to use a drug such as Nolvadex to combat this problem. Doses of Nolvadex should range from 20mg. If you are using it post cycle without a drug such as Arimidex I would suggest using 40mg.
If you are using it during your cycle for gynecomastia prevention 20mg. Prices of this drug are usually fairly reasonable compared to Arimidex or Femara, but I still feel Nolvadex doesn't compare to drugs such as Arimidex or Femara. Proviron is a strange drug due to the fact that it has many different uses in the bodybuilding world. In this article the main feature I will discuss is its effective properties as an anti-estrogen during a steroid cycle.
Proviron is used during a cycle of steroids because it acts as an anti-estrogen in that due to the drug's unique structure it has a higher affinity to the aromatize enzyme than testosterone, but at the same time it does not convert to estrogen. This in turn means that if you administer Proviron with testosterone, Proviron will bind to the aromatize enzyme very strongly, which will not allow the testosterone to convert to estrogen and bind with the receptor. This will prevent the usual estrogen build up seen with testosterone like compounds.
Due to Proviron's mechanism of action, using steroids and employing Proviron will prevent the estrogenic side effects and water retention seen while using some of the more androgenic steroids. It has also been noted that Proviron will increase levels of testosterone during a cycle. The mechanism of action for this effect is difficult to explain, but it allows for more of the synthetic testosterone employed during your cycle to be used more efficiently, and not be converted to the hormone estrogen.
Proviron is seen to be effective at dosages from 25mg all the way up to mg. For the reasons discussed in this article 25mg to 50mg ED is sufficient for its purpose. Another aspect worth mentioning is that Proviron should not be used post cycle. Proviron should only be used during a cycle because it is an androgen, and when coming of Proviron you could experience some negative effects with your body's natural testosterone levels. The cost of this drug is very reasonable, so it could be a good addition to your next cycle to prevent estrogen build up.

Welcome to the EliteFitness. Please join this discussion about How do I correctly use Clomid after my cycle? Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 10 of I'm asking about Clomid after my cycle which is coming up in about 2 weeks.
High dose Clomid is not needed, IMO. Just start at 50mg ed a little early, to get the blood levels, instead of front loading. This based on advice from DrJMW that has worked extremely well for me. Tren isn't fun to recover from, don't cut corners. You should use HCG prior to the clomid, it will help. If you are average joe doing a cycle there is no need to exceed iuED for days post cycle. More than iu is not needed IMO, especially if you never used it before. Fina should clear your system pretty quickly.
I would say run the hcg iu for 6 days and start the clomid about the 3rd or 4th day after your last fina shot. I have started using Nolva over clomid post cycle, but many still like Clo. Either way try to get the HCG and get those balls swole then start your clo or nolva. There are several items.
