Primobolan Basics

Generic Name: Methenolone
Also Known as: Primo, Bolli, Bolan
Manufacturer: Schering
Androgenic / Anabolic Ratio: 88/44-57

Methenolone’s chemical formula is C20H30O2

Primobolan is a Dihydroboldenone derivative and as such can not aromatize into estrogen.

Primobolan is both orally active as well as able to be injected intramuscularly.

Primobolan (methenolone acetate) has a well deserved reputation as an effective oral steroid, due to its relative safety, effectiveness, and several celebrity atheletes accidentally endorsing it by getting caught using it.

Methenolone is based on Dihydroboldenone (DHB) and has a 2:1 anabolic:androgenic ratio, meaning it’s twice as effective at building muscle as it is at making a man out of you.

Like many DHT based steroids, it usually will not aromatize into estrogen, which helps as well in reducing potential androgenic side effects.

2 Different Preperations

This is one of the few steroids that comes in both an oral and injectable version. Primobolan is not the only steroid that can be both eaten and injected, the ever popular winstrol is also able to be taken both orally and as an intra-muscular injection.

In it’s oral version Primobolan is Methenolone Acetate. Oral Primobolan is one of the few oral steroids that doesn’t have issues with liver toxicity. this is due to the fact that oral Primobolan is not 17-alkylated. It’s actually the same methylated ester that Proviron has, just a much more anabolic substance on the other end of the ester.

Oral Primobolan Vs. Injected Primobolan Depot

Primobolan’s Injectable form, sometimes known as Primobolan Depot is Methenolone Enanthate. Primobolan injections tend to be a lot more effective, largely due to the enhanced bio-availability, you don’t need to worry about pissing it all away since it’s bypassing your digestive system altogether.

Oral primobolan is about half as potent as injected, so dosage would need to be higher for oral, some have recommended dosages in the 100-300mg per day range. At that price range, you’re either rather well off or a professional athlete, because primobolan is not cheap in any regards.

Primobolan Safety

In it’s oral version Primobolan is Methenolone Acetate. Oral Primobolan is one of the few oral steroids that doesn’t have issues with liver toxicity. this is due to the fact that oral Primobolan is not 17-alkylated. It’s actually the same methylated ester that Proviron has, just a much more anabolic substance on the other end of the ester.

With Primobolan you are trading a bit higher price than testosterone for increased safety, because Primobolan is typically higher priced than testesterone or deca durabolin, but not by a lot and the extra safety and precision are well worth the increased price.

Primobolan In The News

Primobolan has been accidentally endorsed by a number of athletes, there is a veritable laundry list of professional atheletes and bodybuilders that either tested dirty for or publicly stated a prefrence for it.

With all that positive press (yes people whining about how unfair it is to use steroids in competitive sports is positive press), a very solid preformance track record, and some good safety stats it’s easy to understand how and why primobolan became a household name.
