The antiestrogenic effect of Tamoxifen is due to the blocking of estrogen receptors (and not the cessation of the conversion of testosterone to estrogen, as many people think).

The drug only freezes estrogenic activity, and does not completely prevent it.


Taking Tamoxifen after a course of steroids is recommended to be combined with aromatase inhibitors, the most popular of which is Proviron. Tamoxifen as the main means of PCT is used in dosages from 10 to 20 milligrams daily, starting from the last week of the course and ending with the second week after its completion.

If Proviron is not taken, Tamoxifen turns on a little later – at week 2, and ends 2-3 weeks after its cancellation.

Please note that the highest level of estrogen is observed in the body at the end of the first week of the AAS course.

As for how to take Tamoxifen in bodybuilding on a steroid cycle that does not have an aromatizing effect, it is recommended to add it only at the end of the cycle.
