Studies carried out on women who use Nolvadex for fertility have reported an increased average of around 35% in conception. Please just a vital note to our female members; do not use an estrogen birth control while you cycle Tamoxifen. As hormonal birth control (the pill) being an estrogen and Tamoxifen (SERM) being an Anti Estrogen would cause them to clash, so a non-hormonal form of birth control like a condom would be favored here. If you are using a "Progesterone" Depo-Shot then there is no reason for concern, however I would not see the reason for using Depo/Provera as you more than likely going to be holding allot of water depending on your bodies chemistry. Another vital point to remember if you are using Tamoxifen for fertility is that your embryo might be at risk if you trying to conceive while on this drug, so it is advised to wait around 2 months after your treatment of Tamoxifen before you try to have kids. Remember Tamoxifen has some other side effects on women, that being changes to their menstrual cycle or even causing you to completely stop your cycle, others have reported, depression, headaches, thinning of the hair, dizziness and hot flashes to name a few. If you a women and would like to use this drug pre-contest I would suggest a dose no higher than 10mg a day for a cycle duration no longer than 2 weeks, 3 weeks pushing it. Please consult with your medical adviser before you stop your birthday control and discuss the risks associated with Tamoxifen.
A bridge is a period of anabolic steroid supplementation that occurs in-between full blown cycles, and is normally a more advanced performance enhancement practice. For most men, discontinuing the use of all anabolic steroids for a decent length of time is the best route to take as it allows the body to normalize. However, this isn't always an option. In most cases, a bridge will be a four to eight week period between full-blown cycles. The most common bridge is a low dose of testosterone and perhaps the continuation of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) if it was used during the actual cycle. While testosterone is the most common, a Proviron cycle during a bridge is a solid option; after all, it has the ability to provide more free testosterone. This isn't the most effective bridge, but it can be attempted. If this type of Proviron cycle is used, once again HGH can be included, and if available Dianabol at a dose of 10mg per day if the total bridge is only four weeks as this will provide total androgen replacement.
Therefore, Nolvadex is the superior choice not only for the purpose of stimulating endogenous Testosterone secretion, but also for mitigating gynecomastia. The standard dose for PCT and for stimulating the release of GnRH (Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone), LH, FSH, and ultimately Testosterone is that of a simple Nolvadex dose of 20 – 40mg daily. In all studies involving Nolvadex doses that stimulated endogenous Testosterone production, only 20 – 40mg daily of Nolvadex was utilized, and it has in fact been shown that doubling the dose to 40mg or any higher will not produce any significant difference in endogenous Testosterone secretion. The only reason why many elect to utilize 40mg daily of Nolvadex for the first 2 weeks of a PCT program is for the purpose of achieving optimal peak blood plasma levels quicker so as to ensure HPTA recovery quicker.
