What is Primobolan?
Primobolan is the most recognized brand name associated with the Methenolone hormone. This steroid carries an androgenic rating of 40-55 and an anabolic rating of 80-90. As we all know, the androgenic properties of steroids promote an increase in male sexual characteristics, while the anabolic properties promote growth of muscle tissue. Therefore, primobolan is one of the few steroids that can be used by women due to its relatively low androgenic rating.
Unlike most other anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS), methenolone is available both as an oral, and an injectable compound. Primobolan is the oral version of the steroid, where the methenolone hormone is attached to an acetate ester. On the other hand, Primobolan Depot is the injectable version, where the methenolone hormone is attached to an enanthate ester.

What are the benefits of primobolan?
Primobolan was originally developed to treat muscle wasting diseases and prolonged exposure to corticosteroids - stress hormones. Interestingly, the oral version of primobolan is not hepatotoxic (liver toxic), which is usually not the case with most oral steroids.
All in all, primobolan has three unique characteristics that make it one of the best steroids to use in a cutting cycle.
1. It will dramatically improve nitrogen retention, which ensures the prevention of a catabolic (muscle wasting) state.
2. Thanks to its extremely strong binding affinity for the androgen receptors, primobolan directly increases fat loss.
3. This steroid enhances the immune system and has been successfully used in treating patients with AIDS.
Dosages of Primobolan
The standard therapeutic dosage for a male is 50-75 milligrams (mg) per day. Most men will find this dosage to be perfect when stacked with other steroids such as Testosterone, Masteron, Anavar or Winstrol.
However, no standard therapeutic dosage has been established for females. Hence, the majority of females will find that a dosage of 25-50 mgs per day will be optimal in a cycle of 6-8 weeks. Due to primobolan’s well-documented effects on hair loss, cycles longer than 10 weeks are not recommended.
Sample primobolan cycle for females
Notes on the cycle:
- Cardarine (GW-501516) and N2slin are great additions to the cycle because they increase endurance, fat loss and recovery without any side effects at all.
- In spite of the fact that testosterone is a male hormone, women also naturally produce this hormone. Therefore, using any exogenous steroid will suppress natural testosterone production in women too. Consequently, it is a good idea to supplement with a high quality natural testosterone booster (such as HCGenerate ES) after a primobolan cycle in order to restore natural testosterone production.
