Primobolan is one of the few steroids that can regularly be found in both oral and injectable forms; Methenolone-Enanthate being the injectable and Methenolone-Acetate the oral. A once fairly popular anabolic steroid, Primobolan is not nearly as popular as it once was; however, due to rumors surrounding Arnold Schwarzenegger implying it was his favorite, to this day there remains a strong almost cult like following. While there is no question, Primobolan is one of the safer steroids we can use in-terms of side-effects because Masteron is more readily available and far less counterfeited many in recent years have opted for that rout. However, as these two steroids are often compared in truth and function they carry very specific differing traits; more importantly, the counterfeiting factor cannot be ignored. Yes, unfortunately Primobolan is one of the more commonly counterfeited steroids on the black market, especially the tablets but in high amounts in both forms. Nevertheless, legitimate Primo as it is commonly called, while a very mild steroid can be well suited for cutting cycles but generally for most there is little benefit otherwise. However, for the female anabolic steroid user, as Primobolan is very mild in nature it can often be a fine choice as side-effects are very easy to control and often non-existent when used responsibly.Primobolan 101:
Primobolan is a DHT based steroid (Dihydrotestosterone) that possesses both anabolic and androgenic traits although its androgenic properties will prove to be a little on the low side as Primobolan is twice as anabolic as androgenic. Like most DHT steroids Primobolan does not aromatize which for many is a very nice trait, especially concerning those sensitive to aromatase effects.
While both oral and injectable forms of Primobolan are comprised of the same active hormone Methenolone the oral Acetate version will prove to be far less potent on a milligram for milligram basis for one simple reason. Most all oral anabolic steroids are 17-alpha-alkylated in order to allow the hormone to survive the first pass through the liver; oral Primobolan does not possess this trait. Due to this structural change being absent, when taken orally most of the active hormone will be destroyed before it ever enters the blood stream; however, as the 17-aa alteration creates a toxic effect on the liver, because oral Primobolan does not carry the 17-aa trait it is not liver toxic at all.The Benefits of Primobolan:
As a very mild DHT steroid, most will not see any bulking benefits from its use as it does not possess traits apt for this purpose. You could use this steroid as part of a bulking cycle but it would necessarily require massive amounts and due to this steroid being outrageously expensive this is simply not feasible. Most will find Primobolan to be best served in a cutting cycle; while it will not promote muscle tissue growth to any great degree it is a fantastic steroid for the use of preserving existing muscle tissue. Further, as it can preserve it has also been shown to be one of the few anabolic steroids that can directly lead to fat-loss. While almost all anabolic steroids carry this fat loss trait to a degree, Primobolan appears to do so in a more direct manner.
Without question the greatest benefit to Primobolan use lies within its safe nature when taken by female anabolic steroid users. Make no mistake, this is not a girl only steroid but because so many steroids are so harsh on females, as steroids such as Primo and Anavar are generally well-tolerated by women they hold somewhat of a special place. The largest concern for most women and anabolic steroid use is virilization; however, with responsible use this is non-existent in almost all females. While it can occur, if symptoms start to show, simply discontinuing will see them fade away. This makes Primobolan very beneficial to females as they are able to enjoy a moderate anabolic affect without the nasty side-effects. It is however very important to note, if virilization effects set in there is often no turning back; don’t push the envelope.The Side-Effects of Primobolan:
As Primobolan does not aromatize many of the common anabolic steroid associated side-effects are non-existent. Side-effects such as water retention and bloat are very rare and Gynecomastia is of little concern. Further, as the oral version is not a 17-aa steroid liver damage largely goes out the window. Without question this is one of the safest steroids on the market but make no mistake, possible side-effects do exist. Like all DHT based steroids Primobolan can cause hair-loss. There is something you need to understand about hair-loss, steroids that promote this do not make you go bald, you were going to go bald anyway but if you are predisposed to this condition DHT steroids like Primobolan will simply speed it up. Beyond hair-loss and virilization in women who abuse the steroid there is little concern when this steroid is used; however, testosterone suppression must be mentioned and discussed as there is a prevailing myth in this regard.Primobolan & Testosterone:
For reasons that make as much sense as saying what goes up must turn purple, a common belief by many is that Primobolan does not suppress natural testosterone production. It is true, many steroids carry with them varying levels of harshness in-terms of testosterone suppression but most all suppress and Primo makes no exception. A low dose of the steroid, as low as a mere 25mg can suppress testosterone production by as much as 50% and this is assuming no more is administered beyond the one dose. This makes bridging with this steroid, which is very common not only a bad idea but simply stupid.Primobolan Cycles & Doses:

Primobolan is a rare steroid which can be found both in the injectable steroids and oral steroid forms; the injectable form is called Methenolone-Enantahe while the oral form is called Metheneolone- Acetate. Primobolan was at one point of time among the most popular steroids in the world. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the popular Hollywood action star, implied that Primobolan was his favorite, which contributed in it having a cult following among bodybuilders. Primobolan is one of the safest steroids out there, but people are now being attracted towards a similar drug known as Masteron, because it is easily widely available and can be used as a substitute for Primobolan.
Primobolan is a steroid based on DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) which possesses both androgenic and anabolic characteristics. Its androgenic properties are a little on the lower side as Primobolan tends to be more anabolic in nature than androgenic. Primobolan is well suited to those users who do not like the aromatase effects of steroids as Primobolan like most DHT steroids don’t aromatize.
Methenolone is the active hormone in both the oral and injectable versions of Primobolan. The oral version will be less effective than the injectable version on a milligram for milligram comparison. This is because oral steroids are often structurally changed (17-alpha-alkylated) to get through the liver without dissolving. This structural change is absent in Oral Primobolan resulting in the destruction of most of the hormone before it penetrates the blood stream. It is understood that the 17-aa modification puts the liver under a lot of pressure. Oral Primobolan lacks this modification and so it is not harmful for the liver at all.Benefits of Primobolan
Since Primobolan is a mild DHT steroid, it is unlikely to have that many bulking benefits as its characteristics do not define that purpose. You could still go ahead and use it in your bulking cycle but it will likely require large amounts of administration to see any noticeable effects. Primobolan is pretty expensive, making this routine extremely unfeasible.
Most users are of the opinion that Primobolan is best used in cutting cycles. It is unlikely that Primobolan will contribute in any major way to muscle tissue growth but it is a brilliant steroid when it comes to preserving your prevalent muscle tissue. Primobolan has also gained the reputation of being one of the rare anabolic steroids which can directly initiate fat loss in users. This is a trait it shares with many other anabolic steroids but its effects have been known to be more direct.
The biggest benefit of Primobolan has to be its safe nature when being administered to anabolic steroid users from the fairer sex. Almost, all the steroids out there have severe complications on females, but the likes of Primobolan and Anavar are generally well tolerated by them. For females who use steroids, Virilization (Development of sexual differences) is the biggest concern. With responsible use, this can be avoided by all users. If symptoms start to show, then simply discontinuing with the steroid will eradicate their presence. Women love Primobolan because it is one of those steroids through which they can enjoy the effects of anabolic steroids and not have to deal with the nasty complications steroids generally come with. There is however, no turning back from Virilization once its effect sets in permanently, so one should always be on the lookout for alarming signs.Side effects of Primobolan
Primobolan is not an aromatizing steroid, so most of the side effects common with other steroids are practically nonexistent when it comes to Primobolan administration. Water retention and bloating has been observed rarely. As Primobolan is not structurally modified to bypass the liver, it does not cause any harm to it. Because of its mild nature, it has earned the recognition of being one of the safest steroids out there at present but as with all steroids, a few side effects are existent.
Common side effects that are associated with Primobolan administration are as follows:Primobolan and Testosterone
There is a common belief doing the rounds that Primobolan does not intervene in the production of testosterone. Most steroids have varying degrees of harshness towards the human body and its ability to produce testosterone but all of them do intervene in its production. Primobolan here is no exception and even its administration is known to have suppressed testosterone production. A small dosage of Primobolan, say as low as 25mg, can easily suppress the production of testosterone by an alarming 50%. This is why bridging with Primobolan is an extremely stupid decision users can take.Primobolan Cycles and Doses
Primobolan is a mild steroid and hence it is also classified as a weak steroid. Men who are willing to use this steroid probably need to take in quite a bit to actually start seeing some realistic effects. Men using Primobolan often end up in disappointment simply because their dosages are just not enough to see the positive effects. Those who have been using the oral version over the injectable ones are likely to be more disappointed as they need even larger amounts of administration for any effects of the steroid to start showing. It is important to remember here that Primobolan is a very expensive steroid.
Men will often find that 500mg per week is a bare minimum dose to see any of the potential benefits. The cycle of administration should be set a minimum timeframe of 8 weeks, with 12 weeks being a highly favorable timeframe.
For those female athletes out there, both versions of the steroid are likely to be far more beneficial but of course, the injectable version triumps over the oral version here too. To keep Virilization at bay though, female users need to use Primobolan in bursts of 4-6 weeks. Basically, if the cycle of usage is for 4 weeks, they should take a 2 week break post the cycle to allow the body to recover. Post the break, they can choose to start another cycle as required.
If Virilization begins to shown even though all precautions have been taken, it is recommended that females should stop the administration immediately no matter whichever week they are in, and allow the body to recuperate. A 100mg does will be considered an extremely potent dose by many women and help them achieve their wants, while a 50mg dosage is a more realistic dose, which is likely to be extremely efficient and effective.
Primobolan is definitely one of the safest steroids out there in terms of side effects. It makes us wonder as to why Masteron grabs so many eyeballs. Masteron and Primobolan are quite similar and their effects are also close to equal. Masteron is easier to procure in the market and is less likely to be counterfeited unlike Primobolan. This cannot be ignored because in today’s times, Primobolan is effectively one of the most counterfeited steroids available in the black market. The oral versions or the tablets are more commonly counterfeited but injectable fakes are common as well.
The authorities have classified Primobolan too as an illegal steroid but it is easily available in the black market. The worrying factor about Primobolan drugs being sold in the black market is that there is enough evidence to suggest massive counterfeiting and adulteration with this drug in this market. Since Primobolan has such an impressive cult-following, it is pretty easy to guess the number of enthusiasts looking for this drug in the market and many of them are being conned by black market agents with sufficient ease. This has to be effectively controlled by the governing authorities immediately.How can they go about doing this? Here are a few suggestions:
