You have fully recovered from that dosing or you are hoping that it does not require PCT?
Many novices have been injured by wishful thinking or ignorance. Everyone responds differently and you cannot have any idea how you will fare until you have been through it, for good or bad. Many will not take the chance that they will be ok without PCT and [wisely] never have to find out.
Advocating this for others is irresponsible.
Why would you NOT want to avoid taking another drug with all of its potential side effects (i.e. clomid & blindness) if possible?
I can see you are very cautious and that is understandable but I am trying to be even more cautious!
Clomid is not the only SERM that you can obtain. Are you looking for excuses to not understand the bigger picture?
Blindness has occurred with some babies born to women who have taken clomid to get pregnant or during pregnancy when they did not realize that they had become pregnant. If you are not at risk of getting pregnant… what is your concern?
Blindness was one of many birth defects that have been reported in association with Clomid. But note that these same birth defects also occur in women not taking any drugs.
The birth defects are rare and the sample size does not create a very good statistical case. But there are lawyers who make a big deal of this and a big deal of money as well.
Note that there are a lot of older women seeking to get pregnant who are trying various interventions. As a group, compared to young healthy women, older women who get pregnant naturally or easily do as a group have a definite higher risk of having a babies with birth defects or a pregnancy that will not carry to term. You need to read between the lines.
