Primobolan comes in two forms, as an injectable and an oral tablet. Primobolan Depot is the injectable form and is officially referred to as Methenolone Enanthate. Primobolan Depot is one of the oldest steroids on the market and has been manufactured by Schering since the early 1960's; however, it's also commonly counterfeited. To make matters worse, it's rather expensive compared to most steroids. The supply of Primobolan Depot on the steroid market is by no means high, it's not a rare steroid but most suppliers don't carry it. There is no other human grade manufacturer of this compound other than Schering.
Primobolan Depot can be stacked with just about any anabolic steroid. It is very user friendly and this not only applies to stacking but also to side effects. So user friendly, Primobolan Depot is a favorite of many females; in fact, there is no anabolic steroid as friendly to females other than Anavar. Virilization is still possible, but the odds are low in most women who supplement responsibly. Please see the side effects and cycles link for related information.
Primobolan Depot is the slower acting form of the two Primo steroids. The oral version carries the small, fast acting Acetate ester. The Depot version carries the large, slow acting Enanthate ester. This does not change the specific traits of the steroid; both carry the same traits of a positive and negative nature. It will, however, affect the steroids release time. Primobolan Depot will be slower acting and take longer to build up in the body, but its effects out last the oral form in-regards to a per dose basis. Primobolan Depot carries an active half-life of approximately ten days. One injection per week will get the job done. However, most will find two equal sized injections per week to be best rather than one single large dosed injection.
Moderately anabolic and only mildly androgenic, despite this mild androgenic nature the side effects of this steroid will surround androgenic activity. Acne and hair loss are both possible. Hair loss is dependent on being predisposed to male pattern baldness. Acne can be avoided by keeping the skin thoroughly clean and is normally only a concern for those genetically sensitive to acne to begin with. On a positive note, Primobolan Depot cannot lead to gynecomastia or water retention as it possess no estrogenic or progesterone activity. This makes high blood pressure a rarity as it is normally caused by water retention and excess estrogen levels. It is also the androgenic nature that can be responsible for virilization, the promotion of masculine like traits in females, but this will normally be associated with high doses or poor genetic responses. Virilization symptoms will reverse if use is discontinued at their onset.
Primobolan Depot is not a great choice for male off-season bulking cycles. The steroid simply lacks enough anabolic power to build any significant amount of mass. Mass can be promoted, but it will take very large doses for any mass of any significant note. That can be extremely expensive and cannot be justified when the same results could be obtained by using a lot less of more affordable steroids. Where Primobolan Depot will shine in regards to male use is in the cutting cycle. This is an excellent preserver of lean tissue, and it will also provide moderate conditioning effects of a visual nature. If that's not enough, it will have a positive impact on the metabolic rate, and as a result, you will burn fat at a more efficient rate.
Cutting is also the best time for females to use Primobolan Depot. Females can obtain the same results in a cutting cycle as men. Women simply need a much lower dose than men. Then there's off-season bulking, and unlike males, women can actually benefit significantly from the use of Primobolan Depot during the off-season. Women are far more sensitive to the compound, and a little will go along way when it comes to lean muscle tissue promotion. No, it's not going to pile an enormous amount of mass on your frame, but often a moderate buildup is a dramatic change to a smaller female physique. As a bonus, due to the metabolic enhancing properties of Primobolan Depot, women will be able to gain more lean mass in their off-season with less body fat accumulation that would otherwise accompany such growth.
