Primobolan is an enanthate esterified injectable steroid which shows mild anabolic and low androgenic properties. The enanthate ester creates a situation in which concentrations of the steroid rises and stays elevated for roughly two weeks. Primobolan is the injectable version of methenolone, the same compound available in oral form created by Schering. The injectable version is much more popular, being much more cost effective to males bodybuilders whom require a relatively high dose.
Primobolan is commonly used by those who wish to keep oestrogen and androgenic related side effects to a minimum. Primobolan is also a popular choice for cutting cycles due its mild anabolic properties which may be best suited for sustaining muscle tissue under strict pre-content dieting. Excessive subcutaneous fluids will also not be a concern due to primobolan being a non-aromatising steroid. The compound could also be added to bulking cycles to heighten the anabolic nature of the cycle whilst minimising adding to the overall oestrogen and androgenic side effects.
Androgenic related side effects are usually only confined to the sensitive individuals, or those who opt to take the larger dosages of the product. Primobolan is often regarded as a safe steroid in comparison to other products, and it is a very sought after product which reflects in its cost.
