What is clomiphene 50 mg tab effect?

What is clomiphene 50 mg tab effect?

Helps ovulation: Clomiphene fools the brain into thinking there is not enough estrogen produced by the ovary so the brain sends out more signals to the ovary to get to work(fsh/lh hormones).

Have any doctors heard of using clomiphene citrate or anastrozole to boost a mans natural production of testosterone ? If so is it safe and effective?

If you have had a few serum testosterone levels actually low, this may be the problem; otherwise these won't help you. More important is that some smart physician screen you for prolactinoma, hemochromatosis & other important causes of lost libido. ...Read more
