Everyone always wants a cut and dry answer; one answer that fits their needs and everyone else’s but in the case of a Nolvadex dosage there is no set in stone cut and dry answer. A Nolvadex dosage can vary greatly depending on the purpose of use, individual needs and of course the sex of the individual supplementing. While we are only concerned here with the use of this SERM in performance it is also used in the fight against breast cancer and the Nolvadex dosage can vary within that purpose too and if you ever find yourself needing this SERM for that purpose your doctor will prescribe your suited Nolvadex dosage. For our purposes here there are three distinct purposes of use and you’ll find the dose varies for each.
For the female athlete, while there are fewer options there are well-suited options to meet her performance needs and Nolvadex is one of those options. Unfortunately for females many anabolic steroids can cause a host of unwanted problems that can lead to virilization and while there are some that won’t they are extremely limited. A small Nolvadex dosage can give the female athlete a moderate testosterone boost aiding her in performance but it is the SERM’s use in physique sports that is the most common among female performance enhancers. We’re not talking just about bodybuilding but figure and bikini as well. Nolva, as it is commonly called can lend to a leaner and tighter female physique and when your competition is often based on these factors proper supplementing can make a huge difference in where you place. Most women will find a Nolvadex dosage of 10mg per day to be more sufficient with some women needing and tolerating as much as 20mg per day. Generally speaking most women will only need 4 weeks of use and generally this is the 4 weeks before competition but some will go up to as much as 6 weeks if needed.
Gynecomastia is one of the worst side-effects that can occur in anabolic steroid user’s in-terms of the affect it can have on your physique and embarrassment it can cause. Gyno, as it is generally called is simply when a man develops female like breast tissue; yep, you bet, we’re saying you grow a set of breast. The reason for this problem is simple; many anabolic steroids convert into estrogen due to the aromatase process and as estrogen levels increase you develop a problem
A common misconception is that Nolva will reduce the amount of estrogen in your body as an anti-estrogen medication but this simply isn’t true. The way it works is Nolva binds to the receptors preventing estrogen from binding and leading to Gyno and this can work fairly well in many cases. To achieve this end most men will need a Nolvadex dosage of 10mg per day each and every day through the cycles use with some going up to 20mg. However, in most cases if 10mg won’t protect you no amount will and you’ll be best served going with an aromatase inhibitor, which actually reduces estrogen and will protect against many other side-effects as well.
In the world of performance enhancement it remains post cycle use is the primary reason most will ever supplement with Nolva and it is here we will find our largest Nolvadex dosage. While this is the most common point of use it is also the most important as the PCT period is the period in-which we are normalizing our body and with a sound plan protecting the gains we have made. For this purpose the average Nolvadex dosage will be 40mg per day and generally remain at this dose for 2-3 weeks. Once this 2-3 week mark has been reached another week or two at 20mg per day is normally needed. On average most PCT plans, at least the Nolvadex portion will last anywhere from 4-6 weeks with the high dose being held to at the front half and the lower as the backend.
