"I have low testosterone, male, age 26. So I had 2 options when I found out I had low testosterone (198) I take try clomiphene citrate (CC) or testosterone therapy. I decided to try the CC because of the negative effects on fertility, with testosterone therapy. (I haven't had kids yet and I still want them!) I am not overweight, and I work out at the gym most days of the week. Within a month of use, My energy was back, testosterone test showed a medium testosterone level of 350, almost 2x higher than before!), penile sensitivity greatly increased, red blood cell count went up, and I just feel great compared to before. My chronic anxiety completely disappeared, and this is a very good indicator that anxiety is caused by low testosterone in men. I have a much easier time talking to women I find attractive now, and feel 10x more confident! I recommend any men try this before testosterone therapy, it is as big a difference as night and day! I take 50mg 1 time daily."
Clomid (clomiphene) "Well, I was actually being treated for secondary hypogonadism. Clomid worked like a charm. The first 4 days I could seriously feel my testicals growing and it felt like pressure, which sort of caused me to feel aroused all day...strange but sort of pleasant. I also felt happy and young again, like I did when I was younger.. super positive...just all around great. Then after around 5 days, the super positive effect wore off, not a bad deal, just sort of a bummer, then I started to get lightheaded sort of having balance issues. Not so bad I couldn't drive or anything, but uncomfortable for sure. So I called my doc (endocrinologist) and he said it would be okay if I reduced my dose from 25mg/day to 12.5 mg/day (quarter tab). Just got worse."
"I had low T (305). Thought I was dying... Slow thinking, hard to recall 4 digits let alone the whole phone number. Almost lost my job it got so bad. Finally saw a hormonal heath man and he said since I was under 60 years old he didn't want to put me on testosterone patch since he tested me an I had whatever enzyme level said clomid would work. After couple months I hit 758 with serume T level much better as well. Clomid saved my life and job. I don't notice any side effects I could contribute to it. I wish I could motivate my self to workout to take even m ore advantage. I have been on it around 5 years. 6mo on, 1 off. blood tested every 6mo. I read they are starting to approve drugs specifically for men - enclomiphene"
Frequently asked questions
Clomid (clomiphene) "My urologist recommended taking a small dose every two days and it increased my testosterone level dramatically he suggested it was a safer option than taking the actual testosterone drug and it worked. I stopped taking it due to an upcoming surgery. Looking to get back on it."
"it is important to use Clomiphene together with aromatase blocker like Anastrazole to prevent an increase of the Estradiol (E2). The described effect of "euforia" can be extended for weeks and in many cases, the BPH (Enlarged Prostate) disappear as a side effect of this combination. without aromatase blocker increased testosterone levels turn into increased E2 levels that irritate the prostate even more in cases where hypogonadism was caused by hyper-efficient aromatase process. also, many side effects are caused not by clomiphene nor testosterone but by increased E2 levels. regular control of T, E2, FH, FSH and PSA is advised. Certain levels of E2 are important for spermatogenesis and the ability to experience sexual climax in men."
"I tried Clomiphene to increase my low testosterone without negatively affecting sperm quality. Unfortunately, just after my second dose (25mg) I woke up at night with numbness and tingling spreading over my whole left body side, with light tingling and muscle fasciculations continuing for over a week after disconinuing the medication. This is supposedly a very rare, but known, side effect of clomiphene, and was repeatable after trying it again after a few weeks. It also seemed to cause anxiety and even minor suicidal thoughts. On the plus side, it did probably increase my physical energy levels."
"I was in my early 40s and felt sluggish. Sex drive was in the tank, erections were becoming progressively less firm. I had an appointment with a urologist for an unrelated reason and told him about my symptoms. He put me on 50mg daily. I had borderline low testosterone and LH levels. I took the first dose in the early evening. I woke up to my first ever sexual dream. I had an erection that would make a porn star blush. The first weeks, I had an insane libido and erection quality I had not experienced since I was 18. Sex was great. It’s levelled out but I was able to double my testosterone levels. Very happy with the results."
Clomid (clomiphene) "I've been taking 50mg of Clomid every other day for about a year to help Low Testosterone (Male). My testosterone was at 233 prior to starting and is now at 742. This shift was directly in step with when I started taking the medication. I have experienced some joint pain (likely due to lower bondable estrogen) and my libido is still low (although higher than it was pre-Clomid). Otherwise, it has been fantastic, it's super easy to take every other day, and the 25-day half-life keeps the levels super consistent, even if you miss a dose accidentally."
