Primobolan Depot is similar to the acetate tablets with a few differences. Though it is a predominantly anabolic steroid, being a DHT derivative it also maintains some androgenic qualities. For this reason, it does have virilizing aspects to consider. This explains the improved strength and harder appearance polled users obtained in part. Naturally since it does not convert to estrogens, induced low water retention and a distinct lack of gyno and female pattern fat deposits was noted as avoided. In fact, the drug does theoretically act as an anti-estrogen to a lesser extent.
*Women reported they were able to avoid some virilizing aspects with Proscar.
Most first time male (AAS novices) users reported an 8-16 lb gain after 6-8 weeks of 200mg weekly dosages. The new muscle was of a high quality and usually was retained quite well after discontinuance. This may have been due to Primobolan depot having only a slight negative effect upon the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testes-Axis (HPTA). In short, this drug was noted to only slightly shut down natural testosterone production and therefore there was not a significant lack of testosterone or an elevation in circulatory estrogen post- cycle. This was especially true if dosages were kept at 200-300-mg weekly for no more than 6-8 weeks for males. (Women don't have testes, remember?). For this reason, older males made excellent and reasonably permanent gains with little interruption in their already lower natural androgen production. For stacks focusing on this issue, Oxandrolone and Android were said to work very well with Primobolan Depot. Primobolan based stacks containing nandrolones and/or Equipoise were commonly utilized for this purpose also.
*A point of interest: Primobolan Depot (like Winstrol Depot) has been noted to possess excellent site- injection qualities. This means that a lagging body part became the injection site for dosages. Most who used this type of
Women actually should not have used high dosages of any DHT product or derivative. DHT has excellent hardening effects, but also has masculinizing aspects. An often noted as safer method for use of such drugs was to also co-administer a 5-ALFA-REDUCTASE INHIBITOR such as Proscar. Its active ingredient is Finasteride which blocks testosterone's conversion to DHT. Yes, that is the pill guys take to stop their hair -line from receding. 1mg daily was said be enough when women stayed in the 50-200mg weekly dosage range when using Primobolan Depot.
Since Primobolan Depot actually has an active-life of closer to two weeks, injections were commonly administered weekly by those whom reported lower dosage use. But due to predominantly 50-mg/ml ampules being the most available a 4-ml/200mg injection "hurt" to an excessive degree for those whom employed the higher dosage protocols. So twice weekly injections was the normal method chosen.
*It was my experience that Primobolan was one of the few steroids capable of increasing lean mass during calorie restricted periods therefore remaining effective even in calorie deficit induced catabolic environments. This drug is an Enanthate ester and should provide an 8 day active life. Strangely enough it does provide the above listed active-life range though the ester is an enanthate.
Primo 100 for intramuscular injection, contains methenolone enanthate
Methenolone Enanthate is a DHT based anabolic steroid. When it interacts with the aromatase enzyme it does not form any estrogens. It is used by people who are very succeptible to estrogenic side effects, having lower estrogenic properties than Nandrolone. Methenolone is available as an injection or as an oral. The injection is naturally regarded as having a higher bioavailability. Its an enanthate ester which is quite long-acting. Because it by-passes hepatic breakdown on the first pass, it also has a higher survival rate. The tablets are in a short-lived acetate form. Methenolone is not 17-alpha-alkylated, but 1-methylated for oral bioavailability. This reduces the stress on the liver, but also the availability. It is considered one of the safer steroids, meaning it has a very little side effects. Methenolone has no estrogenic side effects, and its effects on cholesterol levels are minimal. In doses of 200 mg or less (intramuscular) blood pressure is rarely altered.
Possibly one of the safer anabolic steroids for females due to very low virilization effects in short-term usage. Of course, this is not a blanket-statement and individual results (dependent on doses and tolereance) will vary.
Methenolone is also not overly suppressive of the HPTA axis, although how suppressive is debatable. For this reason, many bodybuilders use it in between steroid cycles during their "off-time" to help maintain their gains and strength. The long term safety of such a practice possibly dangerous and can lead to permanent suppression of the HPTA.
