Proviron represents one of the oldest anabolic androgenic steroids on the market. It is not the most powerful anabolic steroid, however, it is still a very beneficial anabolic steroid. Proviron is a very unique anabolic steroid indeed. It shares similarities to Drostanolone Propionate, Oxandrolone and Stanozolol, but overall it’s very unique. Proviron is not used to promote large buildups in mass, however it’s far more common in cutting cycles, even though for somewhat unique purpose.

Proviron is best during the cutting phase. It has the ability to enhance the hardening effects of other steroids. It will also enable the individual to burn body fat at a far more efficient rate. Due to the anti-estrogen effect of Proviron, the individual will be less prone to water retention and it could eliminate the need for a traditional anti-estrogen.
Thanks to the enhancement of circulating free testosterone, Proviron has great benefits when testosterone levels are low. In fact, with a low dosed testosterone cycle that includes other anabolic steroids, the total results will be greater for the individual who includes Proviron compared to the one who does not. In the end, the primary base benefit is the increased androgenicity of other steroids being used in order to promote a much harder and far more defined physique.
In a performance capacity, Proviron doses normally range from 50-150mg per day. Most men will find 100mg per day to be the minimum beneficial dose with both 100mg and 150mg being highly effective. Total use will normally last between 8-12 weeks.
Proviron stacks well with all anabolic steroids. During the cutting phase, it will be most beneficial in conjunction with steroids like Oxandrolone, Drostanolone Propionate and Stanozolol as well as Primobolan. It will greatly promote the androgenicity of these steroids in order to provide and promote the hard look desired.
Proviron side effects
Proviron carries one of the highest safety ratings among all anabolic steroids. Most men will be able to use this steroid without any negative issue, but possible side effects do exist.
The Mesterolone hormone does not aromatize and it carries no progestin nature and thus side effects such as gynecomastia or excess water retention should not occur. This will also greatly reduce the risk of high blood pressure as high blood pressure associated with anabolic steroid use.
Androgenic side effects of Proviron include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. Such effects are highly dependent on genetic predispositions.
Due to very high virilization, Proviron should be avoided by females. This will include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. There are other steroids that carry much lower virilization ratings such as Oxandrolone and Primobolan.
Proviron can negatively affect cholesterol at a far more pronounced rate than most anabolic steroids. If you suffer from high cholesterol you should not use this steroid. If you are healthy enough for use you will need to keep a close eye on your levels.
All anabolic androgenic steroids are suppressive to natural testosterone on some level. Mesterolone hormone however does not significantly reduce natural testosterone production. Due to minimal testosterone suppression, it is possible to use this anabolic steroid without exogenous testosterone. An individual could implement a cycle of Oxandrolone along with Proviron and keep his testosterone levels from falling to a very low testosterone range. However, most will be using other anabolic steroids that are highly suppressive to natural testosterone production along with Proviron making the use of exogenous testosterone imperative. Regardless of the specifics of the cycle, once all anabolic steroid use has come to an end natural testosterone production will begin again. Most are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan at this stage.
Proviron is not hepatotoxic and does not cause any stress or damage to the liver.
