Primobolan, otherwise known as Methenolone, is a dihydroboldenone (DHB) derived anabolic steroid, similar to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is one of the safest and mildest anabolic steroids widely available to the public due to its relatively weak anabolic and androgenic action.
For these reasons it’s a popular choice amongst beginners and women due to the low instances of side effects arising. It’s a good choice as an introduction of the often scary world of anabolic steroid use. The safety profile of this steroid is at the top of the pile with Anavar (Oxandrolone). Used widely by those embarking on their very first cycle, women and athletes and bodybuilders who are far more experienced, it’s a very versatile androgen when used correctly and at the right dose(s). We will discuss the price of Primobolan as your read on, because it’s one of the most expensive anabolic steroids in existence and large doses for males are often required.
There are two main preparations of Primobolan. These are both injectable and oral examples, both of which can be found online or by local gym steroid sources. The first is, Primobolan Enanthate, often referred to as Primobolan Depot. This is an injectable version of Methenolone with the Enanthate ester attached. What does this mean? This means that with this long acting ester attached, we don’t want to be using Primobolan for any less than approximately eight weeks. The longer ester Enanthate will mean that steroid hormone levels of Primbolan will need to build over time after a good 5-6 weeks. At this stage they will become stable and at their peak administering twice per week. This means we will get the most for our $$ when used for long enough and it will mean we experience the least amount of side effects. Because that’s what we all want. It doesn’t matter if you’re cutting, bulking, an athlete or bodybuilder, we wish to use a dose we’re comfortable with, get positive gains with no side effects occurring.
The second Primobolan preparation is with the much shorter ester – Acetate, attached. This newer version comes in both injectable and oral format. There are, however, some important key points to note when using the shorter acting version, both orally and injecting Primobolan. Importantly, the Acetate version is much quicker acting than its counterpart – Primobolan Enanthate (Primobolan Depot). With the Acetate ester attached, the parent hormone (Primobolan) will be active in hours after injection and remain active for three days only. Blood plasma levels of Primobolan will climb rapidly after administration, and then decline after 12-15 hours. This means the frequency of the Primobolan administration is more than its longer counterpart. Injecting every day or every other day is common amongst Primobolan Acetate users. It enters and exits the body far quicker than Primobolan Depot, which means we can limit side effects or attain gains in muscle mass or increase fat burning much faster. It should also be noted that Primobolan Acetate is a fairly painful injection and it is not manufactured in the same concentrations as Primobolan Enanthate. Due to its short affects, its used in cutting stacks over 5-6 weeks and also burst cycle, where the user is wanting to obtain lean body mass in a short period of time.
Lastly, we have the same Primobolan Acetate again, but this time in tablet/pill form. Unlike other orally active steroid that have a 17-alpha-alkylated addition, which means they can survive the “first pass” of the liver, Primobolan Acetate remains orally active in pill form. However, it’s not all good… Because it doesn’t have the 17-a-a alteration, large doses are needed to be used frequently. As we already touched on, Primbolan is not cheap. It’s not cheap because of a few reasons. Firstly that it gives the user good gains with very little side effects, this makes it a very favourable anabolic steroid to use by all of the people that use it. Often we see that anabolic steroids can yield some nasty side effects, but Primobolan is very tolerable by all shapes, sizes, genders, beginners and those very experienced. This pushes demand up which then has an effect on price. Lastly, the raw material is very expensive. It doesn’t matter if the raw powder is sourced from Europe, Pakistan or Asia, the powder expensive. So this brings us to the downside of using Primbolan Acetate as an oral pill. Simply put - the price. Much larger doses are required for the same or similar gains in muscle and reductions in body fat.
Overall Primobolan is one of the most versatile compounds available. Primobolan is used for both cutting and bulking cycles by men and women. Primobolan will not aromatase and cause estrogen levels to climb after use. This means we avoid estrogenic side effects, such as gynecomastia, water retention and others. But it’s not all good. We have already established that Primobolan is structuraly very similar to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Therefore hair loss can be evident and prostate problems may arise. That said, Primobolan is an excellent anabolic steroid to use as a “first cycle” or those under the recommended age of 23-25 years of age due to its low impact on the body and hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis (HPTA). Legit Primobolan is hard to acquire though, due to mane scammers selling fake, counterfeit or relabeling products and earning a fortune because of Primobolans high price. We will discuss how to Buy Primobolan, Primobolan side effects, Primobolan doses and Primobolan cycles in the upcoming chapters of this large and informative Primobolan profile.
