Proviron 50 (Extra Strength)

Proviron is the most well-known brand name of Mesterolone which is quite a unique steroid with benefits that are specific and different to most other steroids available. Proviron is not really thought of as an anabolic steroid at all, but rather as an oral androgen because it has low anabolic properties.

Description

Proviron is not generally used for bulking and muscle gains as most anabolic steroids are, but it can play a powerful role in steroid cycles and in particular cutting cycles not only directly by its own effects but in the way it interacts with the body to enhance the abilities of other real anabolic steroids you are using.

Being an oral DHT derived compound, Proviron is easy to take and requires no injections. This can make it attractive to new steroid users, but as you will learn this is not a product to just blindly add to a cutting cycle and hope for the best – it has some benefits and uses and once you understand these you will be in a prime position to take advantage of everything that Proviron has to offer.

Proviron is the brand name of Mesterolone which was developed medically to treat hypogonadism in men which causes low testosterone. Although it is sometimes loosely considered to be an AAS (androgen and anabolic steroid), it contains little anabolic capacity and so has only weak anabolic benefits.

For this reason, Proviron is not one of those compounds that you will use for mass building or bulking, but it can still have some specific purposes for bodybuilders and some benefits that will interest those who make use of other anabolic steroids.

This is an oral product based on dihydrotestosterone (DHT) with some modifications. The weak anabolic effects of Proviron come about because of the way it is broken down and made inactive once it is in the muscle tissue – something that also occurs with DHT itself.

The lack of anabolic effects is why Proviron is sometimes named simply as an androgen rather than an anabolic steroid and is the reason why this isn’t a compound to use for mass gaining; simply increasing the dose and hoping it will deliver muscle gains is not the way to use Proviron but it can be an easy mistake for a beginner to make with any steroid.

That’s why we need to fully understand the purpose of Proviron for bodybuilders and steroid users, so you can best decide where it will fit into your cycles and overall goals.

Many people make mistakes when planning a Proviron dosage simply because they don’t really understand how it works or what it should be used for. Knowing exactly how Proviron can benefit you when you are using other steroids will make it possible to take the right dose and to get the best results from Proviron.

Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Proviron Dosage

Although Proviron is most used by people who would be classed as advanced users – competitive bodybuilders – some people at the beginner level might still consider adding it to a cycle to evaluate results. There is little risk in doing so and since Proviron is quite effective when used for short periods of time, provides a good introduction on how to use an ancillary compound.

When it’s used medically as an androgen replacement, Proviron is taken two to three times daily at a 25mg dose each time. This gives us a base dosage to work from when planning to use Proviron for bodybuilding purposes, but unlike many other types of steroids, the dosage rate does not increase dramatically for Proviron when compared to its medical use.

In fact, taking the exact same or similar dose as is medically prescribed for androgenic treatment is still highly effective for bodybuilders. A daily dose of between 50mg per day at a minimum, up to 150mg per day maximum is more than sufficient for the mitigation of estrogen related effects like water retention.

Regardless of experience level, Proviron is included in a cycle mainly to mitigate the estrogenic effects of other steroids. This means that your dosage of Proviron is going to heavily depend on which other compounds you’re using.

All experience levels from beginners right up to advanced users will want to stay within the same dosage range for Proviron, with 50mg daily being the minimum dose and 150mg daily as the maximum. Even though Proviron is considered quite safe up to 250mg per day, going beyond 150mg each day comes with little to no increased benefits, but a higher risk of negative side effects and such high doses are only considered by the most advanced and competitive of users.

Proper Proviron Administration and Timing

Proviron comes in 25mg tablets, so your daily dosage is made up of 25mg increments. If taking 3 tablets daily for a 75mg dose, it’s recommended to spread the administration out throughout the day and not to take all three tablets at once because the compound has an active life of just 8 to 12 hours so regular administration is needed to maintain optimal blood levels.

The manufacturer of the original Proviron states that the tablets can be taken either with or without food, but that it is most ideal to take the tablets as close to the same time each day as possible so your circulating levels of Proviron are maintained as efficiently as possible.

The timing of your Proviron administration will completely depend on the purpose of your use: do you want to use it throughout a steroid cycle for estrogen mitigation as a mild aromatase inhibitor compound, or are you looking for some hardcore physique hardening effects at the pre-contest stage?

It’s very common for competitive bodybuilders to use Proviron at higher doses of 150mg and sometimes more at the stage of being close to a contest. This allows androgens to quickly increase, and a very hard, solid and dry look can be achieved in this final stage, especially if lower androgenic cutting steroids like Anavar cycle and Winstrol cycle have been used to get you lean and cut combined with a serious calorie-controlled diet. Those who are not already very lean near the end of a cutting cycle will see less benefits from Proviron. Body fat should be considerably low at this point, allowing Proviron to take hold to exert its fluid removal and hardening effects. Without a very lean and cut physique, these effects will be difficult to notice.

Female Proviron Dosage

Even though the risks of females using Proviron are well known, some women still choose to use it to gain physical enhancements. In these cases, a low dose and limited cycle length are critical to minimize virilization side effects. Females should not exceed 25mg daily of Proviron with a cycle length of no more than 5 weeks. Many females will still find virilization is still an issue at this low level of Proviron usage simply because it is a strong androgen and a DHT derived compound whose androgenic side effects cannot be mitigated using any anti-androgenic drugs.

 

 

PROVIRON CYCLES

Proviron is rarely used as a regular steroid in a cycle because it does not have strong anabolic effects that can contribute to either gaining muscle or fat loss. Where it is mostly used is as a type of helper compound during a steroid cycle where other steroids are being used as the main anabolic agents.

Proviron’s anti-estrogen ability helps mitigates some of the estrogenic activity of other steroids while contributing to goals like gaining a hardened physique, once again because of the anti-estrogen qualities that help reduce water retention. Below are some of the example cycles where Proviron can be included for great benefits:

Beginner Proviron Cycle

Beginner steroid users will almost always be starting with a testosterone compound, and this is where you will include Proviron for added benefit. In any case, using Proviron alone is never recommended nor beneficial, due to its suppressive effects and its lack of ability to deliver truly desirable results as a standalone compound.

 

So as a beginner you can safely add Proviron to your existing testosterone cycle at 50mg daily and expect to see some impressive hardening effects, as well as an increase in the effectiveness and results from the testosterone itself as more of it is freed up while Proviron binds to the SHBG protein.

As Proviron is generally very liver safe despite being an oral, you can use it for a full testosterone cycle although many people will select to only use it for a short period towards the end of the cycle.

Intermediate Proviron Cycle

Any level of user will see good results even at the 50mg daily level with Proviron and for many intermediate users this can be as far as you want to take it. However, it will largely depend on what steroids are being used in your cycle and whether your main goal is for maximum muscle hardness or to use Proviron mainly to mitigate estrogenic side effects.

 

Stacking with your regular testosterone cycle will provide highly beneficial for the intermediate user as you will gain the great benefit of increased testosterone being available in the bloodstream while Proviron binds to SHBG. If your goal with Proviron is to inhibit aromatization, then it’s safe to use this compound for a 12-week cycle if desired.

 

Advanced Proviron Cycle

The most advanced steroid users should still not exceed 150mg daily of Proviron. Most advanced users will likely be aiming to use Proviron to provide a last-minute hardening boost near the end of an intense cutting cycle or as pre-contest preparation.

The advanced user will already be significantly lean and cut, will have controlled water retention well during a cutting phase that makes use of compounds like Clenbuterol, testosterone, Winstrol, and Anavar. In this scenario, the advanced user will benefit greatly from Proviron’s additional reduction in fluid build-up towards the end of the cycle.

 

Stacking Proviron

Proviron can be stacked with just about any anabolic steroid, but its best use is when you combine it with other steroids commonly used in a cutting cycle. These include Masteron, Anavar, Trenbolone and Winstrol.

Whichever compounds you’re using, Proviron will provide the greatest benefit alongside them at the 100-150mg daily range. There are two main ways to include Proviron in your cutting cycle: for a very short time near the end of the cycle to promote increased hardening, or for a longer duration of 8 weeks during the cycle, with a maximum of 12 weeks still considered effective.

Effect on Cycle

When you consider the main uses of Proviron you can quickly see how unique this steroid is and just how potentially powerful it can be in the right hands: firstly, Proviron has a stronger affinity for the aromatase enzyme than testosterone itself does, and testosterone being a steroid that aromatizes brings about a rise in estrogen levels and the associated side effects.

Proviron does the exact opposite to this by strongly binding to the aromatase enzyme so the testosterone or other aromatizing steroids you are using from being affected by that enzyme. This can mitigate the rise in the female estrogen hormone that would otherwise normally happen when you’re using testosterone and other aromatizing steroids in your cycle.

That’s not to say that Proviron can completely replace a dedicated aromatase inhibitor drug, but it can certainly contribute to reducing those estrogenic side effects and in cycles where you’re not taking high doses or including very powerful aromatizing steroids, Proviron might in fact be all you need to control estrogen related side effects or at least reduce them to a manageable level.

In any case, Proviron will contribute to gaining that hard and dry look because of its ability to mitigate water retention – and it’s for this main reason that we see Proviron most often used for the purpose of cutting and contest preparation phases where muscle and physique hardening is a top priority.

Another unique action of Proviron is that it can bind to SHBG which in turn prevents testosterone from binding to the sex hormone binding globulin protein. This frees up more testosterone for use by the body, known as free testosterone So the testosterone steroids you’re using along with Proviron will be more active and more potent and able to more powerfully undertake the important tasks of protein synthesis as more of the testosterone will be circulating and not binding to SHBG while Proviron is present.

 

The results from Proviron, when combined with other steroids, are focused on:

Minimizing and combating the effects of estrogen

As a result of rising estrogen levels using other aromatizing steroids like testosterone, Proviron can help slow or even halt these other steroids from aromatizing which prevents conversion to estrogen. This is achievable even at a low dose of 50mg each day which can greatly help reduce or hold off the gynecomastia and fluid retention caused by other aromatizing steroids. The result is a physique that is noticeably harder and drier – exactly what is required in a cutting and contest preparation phase.

 

 

Enhances the effects of other steroids

By binding with SHBG your levels of free and available testosterone are increased which in turn boosts the effects of other steroids being used. The level of hardness you can achieve with other cutting steroids is also enhanced with Proviron, particularly with compounds like Winstrol,Anavar and Masteron .

 

PCT Compound

Another potential use for Proviron is as a PCT compound but it is generally not recommended and can be a common mistake made by beginners in selecting this compound for PCT because of its known anti-estrogen qualities.

While that is desirable, the downside is that Proviron still causes some testosterone suppression and no matter how mild, this is exactly the opposite of what we need during PCT. So, your expected results if using Proviron for PCT is not going to be anywhere as impressive and effective as you’ll see when using the standard PCT drugs of choice like Nolvadex or Clomid which are often combined with hCG.

Additional Information

Proviron is not an aromatizing steroid so doesn’t come with estrogenic side effects. More than that, it does have the ability to affect the aromatase enzyme in a way that can bind to it and inhibit its activity, giving Proviron some measure of aromatase inhibition or anti-estrogen effect.

While this isn’t anywhere near as powerful as a true aromatase inhibitor, it is a welcome attribute of a steroid when so many other steroids display the very opposite effects. However, while estrogen related side effects aren’t an issue with Proviron itself, there are other potential side effects to be aware of.

Androgenic side effects: Proviron has some strong androgenic effects, after all it was originally made to medically treat deficiencies in androgen. It is based on DHT which itself is an androgen so it should come as no surprise that you can expect to see activity in this area and these side effects cover issues that most steroid users will be familiar with, including potential acne and hair loss or male pattern baldness.

The occurrence and severity of these side effects are highly individual, and some people may experience very little or none at all, while others will see quite severe flare ups of acne. When it comes to hair loss, if you’re genetically predisposed to baldness then Proviron can stimulate this to happen much earlier than it might otherwise have done so. Guys without any genetic links to hair loss won’t have to worry about this androgenic side effect.

The high androgenic activity in Proviron makes it unsuitable for use by females as it’s almost certain to cause an onset of masculine features like a deeper voice and body hair growth. Proviron is an even higher risk for females when it comes to these side effects compared with some other steroids and therefore Proviron is not recommended to be used by females.

Another area that raises concerns with Proviron use is that of cholesterol and compared with many other steroids which themselves can cause some serious impacts on cholesterol, Proviron is considered one of the harsher ones in this regard and one that comes with high risk to cholesterol health.

For this reason, anyone with existing high cholesterol issues is always advised to avoid using Proviron at all. Even those with normal cholesterol levels will need to remain alert to what effect Proviron is having on your cholesterol throughout your cycle.

There’s no doubt that Proviron can have very strong impact on your good cholesterol levels, potentially reducing them by almost a third in some cases. At the same time, it can be raising your bad cholesterol levels by a significant amount.

Without sustained cholesterol friendly diet habits and cardio exercise while you’re using Proviron, it does pose a very high risk in this area so anyone wanting to use Proviron absolutely must formulate a plan to help maintain healthy cholesterol for the duration of the cycle.

As you might expect, Proviron also comes with the side effect of testosterone suppression, but its impact is quite minimal when compared to almost any other steroid. At the dose that most guys will be using Proviron it is unlikely to cause any noticeable testosterone suppression related side effects and therefore it is one of the very few steroids you can use in most cases without the need for adding a testosterone steroid.

 

 

PROVIRON POST CYCLE THERAPHY

While Proviron itself comes with minimal or even no noticeable testosterone suppression at doses that are effective for performance enhancement, almost everyone will use this steroid with other compounds that do suppress natural testosterone production. Therefore, a PCT plan will still almost always be required to get your normal testosterone function stimulated again and to avoid falling into a state of low testosterone where muscle loss and fat gain occurs, among other serious symptoms.

Proviron itself is sometimes utilized in PCT since one of its medical uses is to enhance fertility. By using Proviron in PCT to reduce estrogen, the recovery of testosterone might be improved but this needs to be weighed up with Proviron’s tendency to mildly reduce natural testosterone

So, while some people might choose to use Proviron during PCT because they can’t access other better PCT drugs like SERMs, it is generally not advisable for best results.
