Low dose clomid while on TRT? But Why?
« on: November 03, 2017, 11:03:09 pm »
I read that some of Dr Crisler's patients take a low dose of clomid such as 12.5mg twice a week whilst on TRT.
What is the reason for this?
My understanding is that clomid cannot raise LH when someone is taking exogenous testosterone.

Does anyone know the answer to this? [edited by moderator - the doctors will answer if they have time]
Thanks.

I believe it is to try to boost SHBG.

Interesting. I was just about to post when I seen your reply. Jason bruce, a owner of Defy mentions Clomid will NOT stimulate more production of LH while on TRT, so perhaps it is for SHBG.

My understanding was FSH, not LH. Enough to keep some production alive (And for the boys downstairs) by interjecting that feedback loop.
