    Clomid and sides


    I am taking 50mg of Clomid/day for fertility issues. I was on test-e but decided to try and have another kid but had no active/good sperm so we stopped the test and started Clomid for 3 months then will do a bloodtest.

    Question is if anyone has experience any sides from it. I have been on it around a month and my muscles are so sore for days after working out. I have been lifting for over 15 years so I am used to muscle soreness and aches after hard workouts but these seem different.

    My muscles are much more sore and the soreness seems to last for days rather than a day or 2.

    I also have real low iron, ferritin and vit. d and am taking supps per Dr. to try and bring them up but this problem started a month or so prior to starting clomid so I dont think they are the reason for the soreness.

    You are taking 50mg/day/3 mos? That is a heavy dose... you will probably have sides (vision, emotional). Never heard about muscle sides.

    I was taking 12.5mg/day/2 mos... did not have any sides. Brought my T from 260 to 760. I've been off for a month now... my retest is due about Jul 1, then I'll know if my "restart" really worked.

    Did you use it to get off a cycle or were u on trt.

    I heard that was a high dose. 50mg/day is what 2 fert. specialist and a urologist all suggested. If that doesnt work then HcG. I just want to go back on my test. Felt better, I seem to have lost my desire

    I was on TRT (gel). Figured I'd try to go natural again before I get too old. If I go low again, I am going to HCG.

    Cool, what was your dosing schedule for the IM?

    Right now my natural TT is about 750 so I'm fine with it.

    200mg e/o/w but I took it 100mg/week

    I tried dividing the 100mg/week into e3d but it became a pain in the @ss and I didnt noticed any difference

    Do your dr's know if you are primary or secondary?

    If you are primary, you should have remained on test and then included hcg/hmg to your protocol..otherwise you're going to have a hard time of it while trying to naturally raise test levels.

    Well no, when 1st diagnosed with low t there wasnt any BT done for LH/FSH or a basic complete hormone panel. I guess they could guestimate but once I showed low t and they started me on test right away the next test which had LH/FSH and others would be correct because of test-e

    THey want me to try the Clomid 1st then if fails go to HcG. I just dont know if I will be able to wait a full months feeling like this.

    Deprenyl would have been good to take while starting this protocol. It's a drug that boosts levels of active dopamine and will dramatically improve libido and motivation / remove depression if on a high enough dose (although it is generally not prescribed for this type of treatment - it's available from several sources online). It is clinically proven to treat depression, so maybe a dr can prescribe it..but it may be a bit late now to prevent the negative sides of stopping t-treatment. Could take a bit for another drug to take effect. I'd talk to your dr about it and also push to get on hcg.
