Methenolone (methenolone enanthate, methenolone acetate)
Primobolan depot (Methenolone)
Methenolone (more commonly known as Primobolan as well as Primobol, Nibal) is an anabolic steroid derived from dihydrotestosterone with weak androgenic activity and moderate anabolic action. It’s available in tablets (Primobolan) and in injectable form (Primobolan depot). Many athletes compare the effectiveness of Primobolan and Masteron.
Forms of Methenolone
Primobolan depot is an injectable form of the drug, which is stands for Methenolone enanthate. The injection form has a long period of action (due to the gradual transition of the drug from the muscles to the blood), about two weeks. The main drawback of this form is the painfulness of injections. There is existence of less common injectable acetate with a short half-life, about two days.
Primobolan Oral is a form of Methenolone in tablets (Methenolone acetate), has a much shorter period of action (about 5 hours). Methenolone acetate oral has a higher price. A distinctive feature of the tablet form is no toxic effect on the liver, unlike most other oral forms of steroids.
Assessing the overall two forms of Methenolone, the majority prefers injectable form, due to the lower cost and more uniform flow of the active substance into the blood. In addition, Methenolone acetate pills destroyed in the liver.
Methenolone enanthate bodybuilding effects:

Methenolone enanthate side effects
Methenolone acetate injectable and methenolone acetate oral are not converted into estrogens, which is one of the main advantages of the drug. As a result, you can take methenolone without the risk of developing gynecomastia and edema.
Methenolone enanthate 100mg has a marginally profitable level of production of its own testosterone. Its suppressive effect is weaker than testosterone and nandrolone. Studies show that a course of methenolone enanthate bodybuilding in a dose of 40 mg (orally) inhibits testosterone levels by an average of 50%. The famous decline in the production of endogenous testosterone is observed only with long courses of large doses of the drug. In these cases, the course requires the use of gonadotropin, otherwise the development of testicular atrophy is possible.
Methenolone practically does not cause a rise in harmful cholesterol. The drug has no significant effect on blood pressure.
Due to the low androgenic effect, primobolan practically does not cause baldness. Methenolone often causes such side effects as:
- insomnia, and lifting of liver enzymes in the case when large doses are used.
Thus, primobolan can be considered one of the safest anabolic steroids available on the market today. Drawing conclusions we can say, methenolone is a more suitable preparation for those, who wish to reduce the amount of subcutaneous fat and achieve better quality of muscles.
