Primobolan is the most famous brand that combines injectable steroid preparations based on the active ingredient "methenolone". Methenolone is characterized by a steroid profile with mild androgenic and moderate anabolic characteristics, accounting for 44% and 88% of "pure" testosterone, respectively. By the nature of its effect and other properties, it is very similar to the Masteron steroid. Methenolone itself is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, whereby it is not subject to conversion to estrogens. Thus, the development of gynecomastia and other estrogen-dependent side reactions during the use of this steroid is excluded. In fact, it is one of the safest steroids, including those acceptable for beginners. It can also be said that the drug is a "light" version of testosterone. However, in "solo" it does not promote muscle growth and is more suitable for drying and losing weight tasks, when the goal is to preserve maximum muscle tissue. Also, the drug is able to “maintain” and even increase strength indicators without changing body weight.
Injectable - the most common form of this steroid on sale and in sports practice. As a rule, it is produced on the basis of the enanthate ester, which provides a prolonged action similar to Testosterone Enanthate. Doesn't require frequent injections.
Oral. Methenolone acetate (tablets) is characterized by a shorter effect, with a half-life of up to 5 hours. It does not have a toxic effect on the liver, however, most athletes prefer the injection option.

Usage and dosage
As noted above, when used in "solo", you should not expect an increase in muscle weight, but you can safely count on maintaining strength and muscle mass during the drying cycle against the background of loss of non-functional weight (adipose tissue). The course should be carried out for 6-8 weeks. For longer courses, chorionic gonadotropin is always additionally administered. Injectable methenolone enanthate is "put" at 400 mg per week, and oral acetate is used at a dosage of 50-100 mg per day. There is no need for aromatase blockers (Anastrozole, Excedrol, Letrozole, etc.) for solo courses.
Post cycle therapy
For PCT, you can use Clomid (100-50-25 mg daily) and Tamoxifen (30-20-10 mg daily) for 3-4 weeks. In case long-term injectable Primobolan (methenolone enanthate) has been used, post-cycle therapy should be started 2-3 weeks after the last injection. After the tablet form, PCT begins 2-3 days after the final intake of the drug.
