Primobolan is an anabolic steroid with moderate action and few side effects. This is a “soft” steroid, which is mostly used by athletes during the drying period in order to maintain the typed muscle mass and give it definition. It is available in both oral and injectable form. Active substances of Primobolan are methenolone enanthate and methenolone acetate (for oral and injection form, respectively). The drug has a weak anabolic (88% of testosterone) and androgenic (44% of testosterone) exposure. It is safe enough for the liver, does not aromatize, and is often used by beginning athletes as the first steroid.
Given the absence of side effects and a relatively weak effect on the body, the medicament is often used by women. The oral form of the drug is good in that it does not have a toxic effect on the body (the remaining tableted steroids do not have such an advantage). Another advantage of the drug is the absence of conversion to estrogens. Its taking is not accompanied by swelling or gynecomastia.
Cycle of Primobolan – key features
Primobolan cycle lasts long, about eight weeks (because of the moderate action of the drug). An increase in the duration of admission is not recommended because of the possible occurrence of side effects. The best time to receive it is the cutting cycle. In this case, using the medicament will help to save muscles and increase muscle definition.
Taking Primobolan Depot in combination with other drugs is a very common practice given its weak anabolic effect. The best anabolics that may be combined with the drug are nandrolone, testosterone, methandrostenolone, and sustanon. During the period of cutting, Winstrol can be added. When composing a combined course, it is not recommended to use more than two drugs at the same time. Steroids used should be taken in half doses, it will save their effectiveness and reduce the risk of side effects occurrence.
Dosage of the drug on Primobolan cycle
The dosage of the medicament in the oral form (for men) range from 50 to 100 mg per day. After 2-3 days after the end of the cycle, it is recommended to begin post cycle therapy. The dosage of injections is 400 mg once a week. PCT should be started 3 weeks after the last injection.
The duration of action of the oral drug form isn’t long and is about 5 hours. The injectable form of the drug works for 10-14 days. Time of detection is up to 5-6 weeks for tablets and up to 6 months for injections.
Estimating in general two forms of the drug, most athletes prefer injecting form, due to the lower cost and more even flow of the active substance into the blood. In addition, some part of the drug in tablets is destroyed in the liver.
Primobolan cycle results before and after
The medicament provides the following results before and after:
- Improving the quality of muscles. The drug practically does not add muscle mass, but perfectly “draws” the muscle fibers, making them more definite and firm.
- Increased strength, which allows athletes to lift more weights.
- Stimulation of metabolic processes in the body.
- Preservation of gained muscle mass.
The medicament is more suitable for drying than for a set of muscle mass, which is confirmed by the reviews of those whose goal was precisely muscle mass gaining.
Side effects of Primobolan Depot drug
Steroids definition itself provides the risk of side effects occurrence. However, the medicament is one of the safest oral steroids. The manifestation of its side effects is a very rare phenomenon. Adverse events are completely uncommon when taking a drug alone (solo) in the recommended dosages Primobolan Depot has no significant effect on its own secretion of testosterone. When taking the drug during a long time in the dosage of 40 milligrams, the hormone level is reduced by half but is completely restored after one or two weeks. It is theoretically possible to develop testicular atrophy, increase blood pressure and raise the level of bad cholesterol. However, in practice, these side effects are not extremely rare. Large overdoses can lead to excessive excitability and even aggression.
Unlike most anabolic steroids, the drug practically does not lead to an increase in blood pressure. It does not cause a rise in harmful cholesterol either. As for contraindications, pregnancy and lactation are absolute ones. However, before the cycle with the med, it is better to consult a doctor (sports specialist).
