Primobolan Depot (Methenlone Enanthate)
SHORT PRIMOBOLAN DEPOT DESCRIPTION:
Primobolan – Methenolone Enanthate is a mild anabolic with a minimal chance of typical steroid side-effects. Usual dosage for Primoblan is 200-400 mg per week, women use half the mens dosage.
Primobolan – Methenolone Enanthate is a mild anabolic with extremely low androgenic activity, meaning that there is only a minimal chance of typical steroid side-effects. It does not convert to estrogen and, therefore, estrogen-caused water retention and fat deposition will not occur from using it. Primobol increases the conversion of protein to lean muscle tissue through its anabolic activity. Because primobol has virtually no androgen (i.e., masculinizing) effects, it can generally be used safely by women.
LONG PRIMOBOLAN DEPOT DESCRIPTION:
Primobolan Depot is the injectable version of the steroid methenolone. This of course is the same constituent in Primobolan Orals (methenolone acetate), both produced by the firm Schering. In this preparation, an enanthate ester is added to the steroid, which causes a slow and gradual release from the site of injection. Its duration of activity would thus be quite similar to testosterone enanthate, with blood levels remaining markedly elevated for approximately two weeks. Methenolone itself is a long acting anabolic, with extremely low androgenic properties. On the same note the anabolic effect is also quite mild, its potency considered to be slightly less than Deca-Durabolin (nandrolone decanoate) on a milligram for milligram basis. For this reason, Primobolan is most commonly used during cutting cycles when a mass increase is not the main objective. Some athletes do prefer to combine a mild anabolic like “Primo” with bulking drugs such as Dianabol, Anadrol 50 or testosterone however, presumably to lower the overall androgen dosage and minimize uncomfortable side effects. When choosing between Primobolan preparations, the injectable is preferred over the oral for all applications, as it is much more cost effective.
Primobolan displays many favorable characteristics, most which stem from the fact that methenolone does not convert to estrogen. Estrogen linked side effects should therefore not be seen at all when administering this steroid. Sensitive individuals need not worry about developing gynecomastia, nor should they be noticing any water retention with this drug. The increase seen with Primobolan will be only quality muscle mass, and not the smooth bloat which accompanies most steroids open to aromatization. During a cycle the user should additionally not have much trouble with blood pressure values, as this effect is also related (generally) to estrogen and water retention. At a moderate dosage of 100-200 mg weekly, Primobolan should also not interfere with endogenous testosterone levels as much as when taking an injectable nandrolone or testosterone. This is very welcome, as the athlete should not have to be as concerned with ancillary drugs when the steroid is discontinued (a less extreme hormonal crash). At higher doses strong testosterone suppression may be noticed however, as all steroids can act to suppress testosterone production at a given dosage. Here of course an ancillary drug regimen may be indicated.
Side effects in general are usually not much of a problem with Primobolan Depot. There is a chance to notice a few residual androgenic effects such as oily skin, acne, increased facial/body hair growth or an aggravation of male pattern baldness condition. This steroid is still very mild however, and such problems are typically dose related. Women will in fact find this preparation mild enough to use in most cases, observing it to be a very comfortable and effective anabolic. If both the oral and injectable were available for purchase, the faster acting oral should probably be given preference however. This is simply due to the fact that blood hormone levels are more difficult to control with a slow acting injectable, the user also having to wait many days for steroid levels to diminish if side effects become noticeable.
Overall, Primobolan Depot is actually considered to be one of the safest anabolic steroids available. Steroid novices, older athletes or those sensitive to side effects would undoubtedly find it a very favorable drug to use. The typical “safe” dosage for men is 100-200 mg per week, a level that should produce at least some noticeable muscle growth. In European medicine it is not uncommon for Primobolan to be used safely at such a dosage for extended periods of time. Among athletes, men may respond to weekly doses of 200 mg but regular users will often inject much higher doses looking for a stronger anabolic effect. It is not uncommon for a bodybuilder to take as much as 600 or 800 mg per week (6 to 8 100 mg ampules), a range which appears to be actually quite productive. Of course androgenic side effects may become more pronounced with such an amount, but in most instances it should still be quite tolerable.
In addition, it is most popular for male bodybuilders to stack Primobolan with other (generally stronger) steroids in order to obtain a faster and more enhanced effect. During a dieting or cutting phase, a non-aromatizing androgen like Halotestin or trenbolone can be added. The strong androgenic component should help to bring about an added density and hardness to the muscles. On the other hand (or in addition) we could add Winstrol, another mild anabolic steroid. The result of this combination should again be a notable increase of muscle mass and hardness, but in this case the gain should not be accompanied by greatly increased side effects. As mentioned earlier, Primobolan Depot is also used effectively during bulking phases of training. The addition of testosterone, Dianabol or Anadrol 50 would prove quite effective for adding new muscle mass. Of course we would have to deal with estrogenic side effects, but in such cases Primobolan should allow the user to take a much lower dosage of the more “toxic” drug and still receive acceptable results.
Women respond well to a dosage of 50-100 mg per week, although (as stated above) the oral should usually be given preference. Additionally, some choose to include Winstrol Depot (50 mg per week) or Oxandrolone (7.5-10 mg daily) and receive a greatly enhanced anabolic effect. Remember though, androgenic activity can be a concern and should be watched, particularly when more than one anabolic is used at a time. If stacking, it would be best to use a much lower starting dosage for each drug than if they were to be used alone. This is especially good advice if you are unfamiliar with the effect such a combination may have on you. A popular recommendation would also be to first experiment by stacking with oral Primobolan, and later venture into the injectable if this is still necessary.
On the black market, Primobolan is in high demand and therefore is made readily available. Virtually all forms of this injectable steroid will be packaged in 1 ml glass ampules, with each containing 100 mg of the drug in Europe and 50 mg in Mexico (Germany also produces a 1ml redi-ject). Inside the U.S., the 50 mg ampules from Mexico and 100 mg ampules from Spain and Greece most commonly show up. The attraction is no doubt the price, as Primobolan is not an extremely cheap product. A single 100 mg ampule will generally sell for around $15 to 20 in the United States. The 50 mg ampule is usually a bit cheaper, perhaps $10 on average. Of course this is probably not as cost effective, and in worse cases this preparation will sell for about the same price as the 100 mg version.
