Side Effects of Methenolone Enanthate

Through the homepage and profile we know you’ve already looked through, you are more than aware that Methenolone-Enanthate is the proper name for the popular anabolic steroid Primobolan Depot. Further, you are aware that the Methenolone hormone can also be found in an oral tablet form under the name Primobolan and unlike the injectable version has the Acetate ester attached rather than Enanthate. Even so, we are only concerned with Methenolone-Enanthate; we’re not concerned with the oral form; even so, the side-effects of both are virtually identical.

As for the side-effects of Methenolone-Enanthate, as it is a Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) compound, its possible side-effects will be similar to many other DHT derived steroids, and very similar to the DHT compound Drostanolone-Propionate (Masteron). As this is the case, we will find this is a tremendously side-effect friendly steroid, more so than Masteron, and it will be side-effect friendly to both men and women. This does not mean you can supplement recklessly, there are still possible side-effects, but responsible supplementation can very well lead to safe and successful supplementation.

Primary Side-Effects:

A mild anabolic steroid that does not aromatize at all, the majority of the side-effects of Methenolone-Enanthate will fall into the “possible” category with a high probability of avoiding every last one. For example, as a DHT compound, acne can be a problem, but it will normally only be a concern for those who are sensitive to the condition. Even so, if you keep your skin clean and dry at all times, it is unlikely you’ll have a problem. This means you always change your shirt after becoming sweaty, and better yet, it means you shower if that is a possibility; if you are sensitive you’ll probably need an extra shower or two a day. Of course, there will be those who are so sensitive that nothing will save them, and if this is the case, it probably means DHT compounds are not for you.

Then there’s hair-loss, and this is a condition that is strictly a concern for those who are predisposed to male-pattern baldness; if you are not predisposed you will not lose a single strand of hair. For those who are predisposed, the DHT hormone can prematurely deteriorate the hair follicles; you were going to lose the hair any way, but the Methenolone-Enanthate may speed it up. If you are concerned about your hair-line, DHT compounds may need to be avoided, but you can also try using the 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor Finasteride to protect your hair-line; common Finasteride products include Proscar and Propecia.

Then there’s the most worrisome effect, and it is prostate enlargement; a condition caused by large buildups of DHT. Needless to say, if you already suffer from prostate issues you should not supplement with Methenolone-Enanthate or any anabolic steroid for that matter. Anabolic steroids of a direct testosterone nature can also cause a DHT buildup due to conversion; it won’t be as significant as pure DHT steroids, but if you have prostate issues any excess is a no go. For those who have a healthy prostate, if you supplement with responsible doses for responsible periods of time you should be fine in most all cases; this is assuming there is not an underlying issue. It normally takes large doses for long periods of time to create a DHT buildup that will lead to prostate enlargement, but if for any reason a problem does occur there is a useful remedy. This is where Finasteride will prove to be the most beneficial; in-fact, 6 months of Finasteride therapy has been shown to significantly reduce prostate enlargement in most men, and in many cases, completely.

The Myth into Truth:

It is often stated that Methenolone-Enanthate does not suppress natural testosterone production; go to any steroid related message board and you’ll find this claim; of course, in many cases it will be stated it does suppress but only mildly so. Understand this here and now; almost all anabolic steroids suppress natural testosterone production, and while the total rate of suppression will vary from steroid to steroid it’s going to more than likely occur. In the case of Primobolan compounds, the suppressive nature is not as strong as say Testosterone, Trenbolone or Nandrolone hormones, but it’s more significant than many tend to believe. 25mg of Methenolone will suppress approximately 50% of your natural testosterone production, and for this reason some form of exogenous testosterone supplementation is recommended. The form you choose is of no concern; all that matters is you provide your body with the testosterone it needs as this is a hormone that is essential to our overall health and function. Failure to abide by this rule will lead to an extremely unhealthy low testosterone condition, and it can lead to some tremendously bothersome effects if such low levels are allowed to remain.

Females:

This is one of the few anabolic steroids females can supplement with safely; Methenolone-Enanthate carries a much lower virilization rating than most steroids; not as low as Oxandrolone (Anavar) but it’s an excellent second choice, and in some cases, an excellent addition to an Anavar stack. If you’re unfamiliar with virilization, this refers to the promotion of masculine traits in women; specifically body-hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. For most women, if they supplement for short periods of time, four to six weeks and only use low doses they will not have a problem; however, there are exceptions to the rule. We are all unique to a degree, and just as some people do not respond well to Aspirin or cannot tolerate dairy products, some women will fall prey to Methenolone-Enanthate virilization symptoms even with proper supplementation. If this occurs, you are strongly encouraged to discontinue use at their onset; if you do, they will fade away very fast. Of course, if you choose to ignore them, they can bring severe changes to your femininity in a way most women would never desire, and in many cases, in an irreversible way.
