It is important to understand that Clomiphene Citrate is not an anabolic steroid. The basic function of it is to stimulate the secretion of LH and FSH by the pituitary gland. These lead to ovulation taking place.
However, an alternative use of Clomiphene would be for those men who practice bodybuilding and have a problem of low testosterone levels.
The basic function is that in men, Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate) will inhibit the secretion of LH at the pituitary gland and hypothalamus. One key thing should be understood - how does a female hormone, oestrogen, ends up in men? Well, it may be due to aromatization or some failures in the natural hormone cycle.
Basically, the LH secreted by the pituitary activates the production of testosterone, some of which is converted into oestrogen. This halts the production of LH in the pituitary.
Clomid just sends the message to the brain that there is enough oestrogen which stops the production of LH.
The side effects may be due to the fact that it is considered to be a women's drug. The consequential visual changes may take place. Besides, the structure of the drug is different to all those that naturally occur in the human body. It may get rejected.
