Primobolan is a brand name for the anabolic steroid methenolone acetate. This agent is very similar in action to Primobolan Depot Methenolone Enanthate, except here the drug is designed for oral administration instead of injection. Methenolone acetate is a non-c17-alpha-alkylated oral steroid, one of only a few commercially available oral agents that presents limited liver toxicity to the user. It is also highly favored for its properties as a moderately effective anabolic with low androgenic and no estrogenic properties. It is, likewise, commonly used during cutting phases of training, when lean tissue growth and solid muscularity, not raw bulk, are the key objectives.

Primobolan is prescribed as a lean tissue building anabolic agent, often used in cases where body wasting has occurred secondary to major surgery, infection, wasting disease, aggressive corticosteroid administration, or malnutrition. (Some clinicians also prescribe this agent for treating osteoporosis and sarcopenia, or the natural loss of muscle mass with aging). This steroid has also been used to promote weight gain in underweight premature infants and children in clinical studies, and was able to do so effectively and without signs of toxicity or undesirable effects. Athletes have long favored the combined strong anabolic, weak androgenic, and non-estrogenic nature of this drug, which makes it very desirable for building lean muscularity without side effects.
Effects of Primobolan Oral Vs Injectable
Primobolan is a very unique steroid, as it is one of the few that comes in both an oral as well as an injectable version. I suppose Winstrol Effects does also, but Primobolan actually has a different ester on the oral (acetate) and injectable (Enanthate) versions. The oral version is one of the more interesting oral compounds Ive looked into. For starters, its one of the few compounds available to athletes and bodybuilders which is both oral as well as non-17-alpha-alkylation. This alteration is what generally makes oral steroids survive their first pass through your liver, but also makes them Hepatotoxic (Liver toxic). Oral Primo doesn't have this feature, so it is very mild on your liver (actually it basically isn't liver toxic at all). But Oral Primo also is largely destroyed by it, since 17 beta estrification and 1 alkylation is the method used to make this stuff orally available. You'll need to take a lot of this stuff for it to be effective 100mgs/day of the oral version is a safe estimate for reasonable gains. For women, you could get away with less; perhaps 25mgs/day. Even though the acetate ester has a 2-3 day active life, your liver will do some damage to oral primo, so every day dosing will still be necessary.
When men were given a 30-45mg dose of the oral version of Primo, they experienced a 15-65% decrease in gonadotropin levels. Remember 100mgs is a good dose for gains, you'll also reduce your gonadotropin levels considerably. For the beginners maybe at a too-low-to-do-anything dose of 10mgs it could be used as a bridge. And forget about using injectable Primo to bridge.
Dosages and administration for men and women
The prescribing guidelines for Primobolan recommend a maximum daily dosage of 100-150 mg per day. The usual administration protocols for physique - or performance-enhancing purposes call for 75-150 mg daily, which is taken for 6 to 8 weeks. This level is sufficient to impart a measurable anabolic effect, although one usually doesn’t expect to achieve great gains in muscle mass with this drug. Instead, Primobolan is utilized when the athlete has a specific need for a mild anabolic agent, most notably in cutting phases of training.
Due to its mild nature, Primobolan is often used in conjunction with other steroids for a stronger effect. In such cases, a slightly lower dose is often used (50-100 mg per day). During a dieting or cutting phase, thought to be its primary application, a non-aromatizing androgen like Halotestin or trenbolone is often added. Such combinations would enhance the physique without water retention, and help bring out a harder and more defined look of muscularity. Non-aromatizing androgen/anabolic stacks like this are very popular among competing bodybuilders, and prove quite reliable for rapidly improving the contest form. This compound is also occasionally used with more potent androgens during bulking phases of training. The addition of testosterone, Dianabol 20mg Pills or Anadrol 50 Tablets For Sale is common, although the gains are often accompanied by some level of smoothness due to the added estrogenic component, as well as hepatotoxicity in the case of the latter two agents.
The prescribing guidelines for Oral Primobolan Dosage For Females do not offer separate dosing recommendations for women, although it is indicated that women who are pregnant, or may become pregnant, should not use the drug. Female athletes generally respond well to 50-75 mg daily, with no signs of virilization symptoms. One would not expect a tremendous amount of muscle mass with this drug, and instead find a slow and steady (quality) increase. Some women choose to further add-in other anabolics such as Winstrol Oral Dosages or oxandrolone, in an effort to increase the muscle-building effectiveness of a cycle. While both of these compounds are quite tolerable, one must be sure not to use too high an accumulated dosage. Taken at too high a dosage, these weak anabolics can quickly cause masculinizing side effects.
Primobolan Side Effects
The first thing to understand with Primobolan is that it is a DHT-derivative, meaning it is a modified form of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone). As such, it carries with it many similar properties and characteristics, including the inability to convert (aromatize) into Estrogen at any dose used. This should certainly be a comforting fact to most individuals who are concerned about Estrogenic side effects, such as bloating, gynecomastia, high blood pressure as a result of water retention, etc.
Although the oral format of Primobolan is C-17 Alpha Alkylated (also known as Methylation), which is a process that tends to make oral compounds present a degree of harm to the liver, Primobolan has never shown any measurable hepatotoxic effects to the body. Although Oral Primobolan Dosage does not impose any measurable negative effects on the liver, it still presents some small amount of hepatotoxicity and this should still be understood, especially when it comes to extended cycle lengths and/or very high dosages. With that being said, one death of an anemic patient who was prescribed oral Primobolan has been linked to its use. Once again, high doses and/or very long cycle lengths of oral Primobolan may be a concern.
