Methenolone enanthate, or metenolone enanthate, is a DHT based AAS. It is an ester derived of metelone commonly sold under the names Primobolan (oral)Primobolan Depot (inj.). When it interacts it does not aromatise into estrogen. It is used by athletes who are very susceptible to estrogenic side effects, having even less... estrogenic properties than deca. Methenolone, in form of enanthate and acetate, is available as an IM or as an oral .
The injection is naturally regarded as having higher lasting levels. It is an enanthate ester which is quite long-acting. Since it by-passes liver 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 few side effects. Methenolone has no estrogenic side effects, and its effects on cholesterol levels are minimal. In doses of 200 mg per week or less (IM) blood pressure is rarely changed. It is possibly one of the safest steroids for females in short term usage.
Methenolone is also not overly suppressive of the HPTA axis, although how suppressive is debatable. or this reason, many bodybuilders use it in between cycles during their "off-time" to help maintain their gains and strength. The long term safety of such a practice is possibly dangerous and can lead to permanent suppression of the HPTA axis.
Effects of Primobolan
It has a relatively elevated likeness for binding to the AR, actually binding better than test. This ability to powerfully bind to the AR may be why Primo is such a superior fat burner. Good AR binding has been positively correlated with lypolysis. Since this drug is actually used to reduce breast tumors, no ancillaries are needed, and it may actually be a useful ancillary agent on its own, due to it’s being similar to Masteron.
Also, just akin to Mast, Primo has no tendency to aromatize, and since it does not, a lot of the side effects frequently related with estrogen will not be a concern. So water retention, acne, and gyno will be virtually non-existent more or less. This deficiency of water retention combined with the slow and steady gains provided by Primo may help to explain why it has earned a reputation for creating great quality muscles.
Even though estrogenic sides are not a fear, hair loss still remains a very real fear with it, as with most DHT Derived products. Esteemed doctors who work with AIDS patients have found sufficient evidence to claim that Primo is an immune enhancer and as such is very useful for AIDS patients and many bodybuilders have used it very successfully to retain muscle while on a low calorie diet. Which to me an immune booster is always great to have especially in prep when your immune system can be compromised.
100mgs per day of the oral is safe for equitable gains and for women, you could get away with even less like around 25mgs per day. Even though the acetate ester has a 2 to 3 day active life, your liver will do some damage to the oral version, so every day dosing will still be necessary.Commonly inj primo needs to be used at a dose of 350mgs/week to 400-600mgs/week.
