In brief: Clomid (clomiphene) works for low

Clomid (clomiphene) works for low testosterone in men.
It works because it makes the male brain think you are very low on estrogen. Since men need some estrogen, and men don't have ovaries to make estrogen, the brain sends a signal to the testicles to make more testosterone and tries to convert some testosterone to estrogen later. Beware, daily Clomid (clomiphene) will quickly stop working. Every other day is better.
