Nolvadex (aka Tamoxifen) is being prescribed for Women with breast cancer.
In men Nolvadex is being used off label primarily to stop or cure Gynecomastia (aka bitch tits).
Recently, it has been reported that athletes who use performance enhancing drugs such as steroids use
Nolvadex for PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) purposes.
Steroids in any dosage and cycle inhibit the body's own natural testosterone production, it has been reported that even
minimal dosages of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs cause an almost complete shutdown of natural testosterone production.
If PCT protocol is not followed correctly after drugs abuse, the body would not be able to make any Testosterone on its own which leads to
unpleasant conditions such as losing all the advantages gained during the steroids abuse. In many cases the results may bring the person
to an even worse physical condition than that before the drug abuse.
But it doesn't end there, lack of Testosterone post cycle also leads to : erectile dysfunction, no sexual desire, depression,
Testosterone production is shutdown due to the inability of the body to produce FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) and LH (Luteinizing hormone) which stimulate Leydig cells in the testes.
Since these hormones are produced by the testicles, inhibition of these hormones by drug abuse of performance enhancing drugs causes considerable shrinkage of the testicles.
These circumsances also cause a dramatic decrease in male sperm production.
Many cases were reported of athletes having Azoospermia meaning zero production of sperms and a complete infertility of the male.
To avoid long-term consequences of such condition, following a PCT protocol which includes Clomid or Nolvadex is a must
The most widely used drug for PCT is Clomid, however many people experience
some bad side effects from Clomid and so they prefer to use Nolvadex.
Both Clomid (Clomiphene) and Nolvadex (Tamoxifen) are classified as anti-estrogens and medical research suggest that Nolvadex encourages LH secretion
be just as effective as Clomid but without the associated side effects.
There is no definite protocol for Nolvadex dosage as this depends largely on the circumstances of the individual, past usage of drugs etc...
A common protocol is 20mg/day for a period for about 3-4 weeks, either taken on its own or co-administered with other drugs such as HCG.
Usually started within 1-3 weeks post drug abuse, but depends on the drug being used, the duration and dosages which determine their half-life.
For heavy performance enhancing drug abusers, those consuming large dosages of steroids or those who have been taken some form of steroids
for a prolonged amount of time, therapeutic phase of 3-4 weeks is insufficient and may require a much longer use of Nolvadex for between 8-16 weeks.
Below are some medical extracts examining Nolvadex as a treatment for male infertility/low sperm production:
Oestrogen antagonists Clomiphene or Tamoxifen(Nolvadex)
as medical empiric therapy for idiopathic male infertility
|Medical article published on September 2013 by|
The American Society of Andrology and European Academy of Andrology.
The aim of this study was to synthesize and present the latest available evidence regarding the use of oestrogen antagonists
as empiric medical therapy for idiopathic male infertility with oligo and/or asthenoteratozoospermia through meta-analysis
of randomized controlled trials (RCTs)...The pooled effect estimates showed that oestrogen antagonists use was associated
with a statistically significant increased pregnancy rate compared with controls
Significant increase in sperm concentration
and per cent sperm motility were also noted. While significant elevation of serum follicle stimulating hormone
and testosterone was associated with its use. No significant difference in
adverse event was noted between oestrogen antagonists-treated group and controls. The evidence suggests that oestrogen
antagonists as empiric medical therapy for idiopathic male infertility with low non-serious adverse event associated,
may increase spontaneous pregnancy rate, improve sperm concentration and per cent sperm motility.

Medical treatment of idiopathic infertility.
|Medical article published on 1987 Aug by|
The Urologic clinics of North America
We conclude that, although many therapies have been advocated, no regimen has proved to be consistently effective in the treatment of idiopathic male infertility.
Couples in which the husband is identified as having idiopathic infertility should be advised of the inconsistent and often low conception rates obtained with medical
therapy... If empiric therapy is decided upon, the choice of an agent is somewhat arbitrary. Reasonable initial choices
for the oligospermic patient are tamoxifen (nolvadex) or Clomid (clomiphene citrate) ....
