Methenolone acetate will also not aromatize, so estrogen related side effects are of no concern. And of course without excess estrogen there is little chance of the athlete developing gynecomastia. Likewise there should never be a need for antiestrogen use with Methenolone acetate. While the androgenic component of Methenolone acetate tablets is very low, some side effects are still possible. They may include oily skin, acne, and unwanted body hair. If you take a large dosage of Methenolone acetate it can interfere with the progress of the muscle development. Still Methenolone acetate tablets continue to be one of the safest oral steroids available. Female athletes and those who are sensitive to other types of steroids will find this to be an excellent choice of steroid to experiment with. Women need to make sure they don’t use too high of a dosage of Methenolone acetate tablets. There can be side effects even though this is a mild steroid. Women will find a very high dose of Methenolone acetate can be a danger to their femininity. It is best to start with a very low dose and slowly work up to a dose that works well. The dosage for men is somewhere in the range of 75-150 mg of Methenolone acetate oral daily and for women dosage is 50-75 mg daily.
It’s anabolic effect is also quite mild, its potency is considered to be slightly less than Deca Durabolin (nandrolone decanoate) on a milligram for milligram basis. For this reason, Primobolan is most commonly used during cutting cycles when a mass increase is not the main goal. Some athletes do prefer to combine a mild anabolic like “Primo” with bulking drugs such as Dianabol, Anadrol, or testosterone however, presumably to lower the overall androgen dosage and minimize uncomfortable side effects. When choosing between Primobolan versions, the injectable is preferred over the oral, as it is much more cost effective.
For athletes who wish to maintain a “natural” status in competition, the tablets are quite well-suited as detection chances for the acetate-form are quite slim. However tests have improved and quite a number of metabolites of methenolone can be detected with a simple urine sample. But an English study documented that there is a liability in eating methenolone contaminated meats, which could provide a possible defense if found out. One could always claim they ate the meat of a chicken or cow injected with methenolone since the test concluded eating such meat does not improve performance, but can deliver positive tests for several methenolone metabolites almost 24 hours after ingestion. That’s for those of you seeking a viable defense against a possible methenolone-positive.
