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.
In general it has been found that oral steroids are more likely to prove detrimental to cardiovascular health than injectable forms of non C-17 alkyl steroids. In this regard it is important to point out that estrogen is actually known to have a positive effect on cholesterol levels, enhancing HDL levels, and keeping LDL levels under control. It is when aromatase inhibitors in ancillary compounds come into play during the steroid cycles that the individual is at risk of cardio-vascular diseases owing to estrogen levels being subdued. Further, it has been seen that when the individual is committed to a healthy diet that supports desired cholesterol levels during the steroid cycle , the risk of cardiovascular disease arising from steroid use can be kept under control.
