Methenolone is a well-known and popular anabolic steroid because of its extremely mild nature, such as anabolic and androgenic substances. Often equated with oxandrolone, similar to an anabolic steroid, but the difference between them is notable. Oxandrolone has a much greater anabolic power than methenolone. Methenolone is actually very weak anabolic steroid, in fact weaker than testosterone itself. Anabolic rating of Methenolone is 88, while the anabolic rating of testosterone is 100 - this shows that methenolone is a relatively weak material, when speaking of anabolic properties. The same is true for the evaluation of its androgenic properties, which is about 44-57 compared with the evaluation of androgenic properties of testosterone. Weaker androgen strength of methenolone is actually very favourable, but its weak anabolic ability makes methenolone much less desired anabolic steroid. Most users with regard to the use often choose oxandrolone instead of methenolone. It is mainly used in definition phase in which the objective is to primarily preserve muscle mass and not gaining new muscle mass. Even very high doses of methenolone will not provide the same gains in muscle mass as small doses of trenbolone. Therefore, methenolone is often used with other anabolic steroids. Additions in strength or volume, while not dramatic, are of very good quality and essentially permanent after a long term use. A major disadvantage is the high price.
Also in the definition phase, in which a lower dose of anabolic steroids is used than under normal use, methenolone must still be used in relatively high doses. Since the objective of definition phase is not building new muscle, anabolic steroids during this period are not used in high doses. Methenolone is an exception in this sense, because it must be taken in high doses for it to fully show its strength.
It is among the safest forms of injectable steroids. Methenolone is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, which is very popular among bodybuilders (and especially women, for its low androgenic effects.) Further evidence of mild nature of methenolone is that it was also used in the treatment of children, infants and premature infants in order to promote weight gain without signs of adverse effects and toxicity. This makes it easy to see where the source of the attraction of this anabolic steroid comes from, especially so for the community of athletes and bodybuilders, as a substance that exhibits weak androgenic effects and very few side effects. To the long-term users, it brings only small increases in muscle and strength, but for the beginners, this substance produces considerably good results with minimal side effects. Gains are quite durable. It is almost harmless to the liver. Does not aromatises, sometimes mentioned is the occurrence of mild acne, it does not cause a significant increase in blood pressure and cholesterol levels remain normal. Prolonged use slightly affects the formation of testosterone. Since the substance is a derivative of DHT, it causes excessive hair growth and for a particular genetic disposition causes excessive hair loss.
Because the oral form is not alkylated and is two times less effective than injection, dose tablets must be high. Half-life of methenolone is 10.5 days. It is applied once every 5-7 days at a dose of 400 - 1000 mg per week for men and for women from 50 to 100 mg per week. It should be taken in the period of 10 to 12 weeks to really achieve its full benefit. The usual dose is 2-6 tablets (100-300 mg) daily in 2-3 doses or 200-400 mg per week in case of injectable version. Reasonable oral dosage is up to 1000 mg per week. Women should not exceed 30 mg daily. Even such a low dosage may cause irreversible virility problems (e.g. deepening of the voice). Primobolone is detectable in the body for up to 6 months.
