Tamoxifen is helpful in controlling estrogen related issues. In medical issues, it’s used for treating breast cancer in men and women. Women also use it for preventing breast cancer. It’s also a popular choice among men searching to treat and/or prevent gynecomastia (enlarged breasts tissues).

Unlike Aromatase Inhibitors (AIs) that suppresses aromatization, Tamoxifen selectively binds directly to estrogen receptors. That’s why Tamoxifen is a poor choice for those who have estrogen related issues due to high estrogen levels. It’s best used for preventing/treating gynecomastia among men and for Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) protocols.

Because Tamoxifen does a great job in binding to estrogen receptors at your pituitary gland – the gland starts producing more FSH and LH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone). This boosts the natural production of testosterone. This is the reason why Tamoxifen is great as a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) drug.

These are 2 main reasons why Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) is popular among men using PEDs (Performance Enhancing Drugs). Either to prevent/treat gynecomastia, or for a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan. Both as a result of the same mechanism of action of Tamoxifen – selectively binding to estrogen receptors and inactivating those receptors.

But in medical settings, the drug is mainly offered to women for preventing and treating breast cancer caused by high estrogen levels. Additionally, it could treat infertility in women (inducing ovulation in women) as well as in men (due to its action on hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPTA) leading to increased testosterone levels).

Can be helpful in treating dysmenorrhea. Might be helpful for other health conditions too.
