Please tell me.After use clomid, (clomiphene) will be there more negative feedback because of higher testosterone and estrogen?

See your doctor...: Clomid (clomiphene) increases male fertility as well as female fertility. Since it binds to estrogen receptors in the hypothalamus, there is no negative feedback on gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) in the pituitary gland.
