Methenolone acetate is the chemical name for Primobolan, a popular anabolic androgenic steroid use by bodybuilders and athletes.
The drug is known by a number of other brand, generic, and chemical names based on the manufacturer and country of origin.
To ensure that you are using Methenolone acetate and not a variation (which can have an influence on dosage and frequency of dosages) such as Methenolone enanthate, be aware of its molecular formula:
Methenolone acetate: C22H32O3
Methenolone enanthate: C27H42O3
While the molecular structure of the carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms may seem small to some, the difference between the two has quite an influence over activity, potency, and half-life.
What is Methenolone Acetate?
Primobolan (Methenolone acetate) is a popular anabolic androgenic steroid used by bodybuilders.
This is because it’s known as a “gentler” steroid than other forms of synthetic testosterone.
Anabolic androgenic steroids are designed to mimic the effects of testosterone.
Testosterone is rated as 100/100 in regard to its anabolic and androgenic potential.
Methenolone acetate is rated approximately 90/50 in regard to its potency, offering bodybuilders the benefits of testosterone, but with approximately half of its androgenic potential, which reduces the risk of side effects.
Esters attached to a base drug modify it and influence its absorption rate into the body as well as influence its half-life.
Acetate is a more potent ester than enanthate, so will promote more immediate activity, although it has a shorter half-life than enanthate.
The enanthate ester has a slower dispersion rate than acetate, but has a longer half-life, requiring reduced frequency of use/injections.
Methenolone acetate is the oral form of the drug, while Methenolone enanthate is injectable Primobolan, more commonly known as Primobolan Depot.
Bodybuilders may opt to use Methenolone steroid for cutting purposes and to aid in the promotion of lean muscle tissue development and muscular strength rather than accelerated muscle mass gains and weight.
Benefits of Methenolone Acetate
What does Methenolone acetate do? This steroid is considered a derivative of dihydrotestosterone.
Dihydrotestosterone is a metabolite of testosterone, and therefore provides the same function and activity of testosterone. In terms of Primobolan results this means:
Increased potential for tissue building (anabolism)
Inhibited catabolism (muscle or tissue damage/destruction)
Enhanced production of red blood cells (erythropoiesis) – red blood cells transport oxygen and nutrients to muscles. The greater the volume of red blood cells doing this, the more a bodybuilder may experience increased cellular growth, endurance, and stamina.
Greater retention of nitrogen in muscles – contributes to preservation of muscle
Testosterone also has a positive influence on libido, and is also involved in other body functions including digestion and metabolism.
Dosage recommendations and potential for stacking Methenolone acetate will differ depending on sources.
Milligram strength will also differ depending on the manufacturer (legitimate pharmaceutical or underground lab) as well as country of origin.
Most commonly, Methenolone tablets are found in 5 mg and 25 mg strength.
When it comes to dosage, start at the lower range to first gauge how the body reacts to it.
In medical treatment scenarios, a recommended dosage started out at 100 mg daily but could increase up to 150 mg.
Bodybuilders using Methenolone acetate often start at 50 mg to 75 mg a day, and can increase up to 150 mg a day depending on how the body reacts.
In most circumstances, a Primobolan cycle is recommended to last up to eight weeks.
Stacking with Methenolone acetate
Because of its traditionally mild reputation, it is often stacked with other anabolic androgenic steroids for accelerated benefits while still taking advantage of the reduced potential for androgenic side effects.
In such cases, it is recommended that dosage of Methenolone acetate be decreased to 50 mg a day, and not exceeding 100 mg.
In spite of its reputation as a gentle steroid that doesn’t tend to trigger estrogen-like side effects, always remember that any anabolic androgenic steroid does have the potential to aromatize or convert from testosterone into estrogen.
Everybody may react differently, even if the same milligram strength and dosage frequency is followed.
Methenolone Side Effects
Side effects associated with Methenolone acetate are similar to use of other testosterone products. The higher the dosage, the increased risk of experiencing side effects. These side effects range from mild to more severe:
Changes in skin condition (worsening acne, oily or skin, etc.)
Increased growth of facial and body hair
Potential for male pattern baldness
Changes in cholesterol levels that can have a negative impact on cardiovascular function
High blood pressure
Suppression of endogenous testosterone
Women should use Methenolone acetate with caution as it does have the potential to virilize (also called virilism) and cause undesired effects:
Growth of hair on the face or body
Disruption in menstrual cycles
Cessation of menstruation
