An OTC SERM ever coming?

Just wondered whether anyone thought it was likely that an OTC SERM will be produced by a manufacturer soon?
 
We have seen DS for a good few years now, which a number I believe are based on the good old originals which are not legally available for sale OTC.
Why have they not done this with a SERM, created a slight variant?  It just doesn't make sense to me that you can buy a DS OTC, but for a proper PCT, the SERMs are not available OTC, only AI's which are not as reliable
 
A topic for thoughts?

    I have researched this extensively and although weaker than the established PO SERMS indole 3 carbinol is considered a SERM - it was on a number of USA pharmaceutical tables I came across. High doses (25grammes per day) of ground whole flax is also considered as such - a number of studies back up its effectiveness in breast cancer patients, so there are naturally active compounds that exhibit SERM like properties. But I guess for gyno preventon etc.. during/after a cycle I suppose the current PO SERMS are in practice more effective although toxic.

    Considering its not illegal to obtain serms and they cost considerably less than any otc product does now or ever would - your question is kind of irrelevant imo (no offence meant)

    Aside from this Uk specific point (which is usually right about the price issue between the two types, although to be fair some UK guys probably pay a fortune for SERMs), the Yanks (who make up a much bigger market for OTS supps) can easily & legally purchase "research" versions of ancilleries like SERMs, & for a price that would more than likely be less than any such OTS SERM aimed at the supp's market (which would probably require quite a bit of R&D to develop in the first place, so wouldn't be cheap to buy). Bottom line is i can't see it happening either.
