The side effects of Proviron in men are low at a dosage of 2-3 tablets/day so that Proviron, taken for example in combination with a steroid cycle, can be used comparatively without risk over several weeks. Since Proviron is well-tolerated by the liver dysfunctions do not occur in the given dosages. For athletes who are used to acting under the motto “more is better” the intake of Proviron could have a paradoxical effect. The most common side effect of Proviron-or in this case, secondary symptom- is in part a distinct sexual overstimulation and in some cases continuous penis erection. Since this condition can be painful and lead to possible damages, a lower dosage or discontinuing the compound are the only sensible solutions. Female athletes should use Proviron with caution since possible androgenic side effects cannot be excluded. Women who want to give Proviron a try should not take more than one 25 mg tablet per day. Higher dosages and periods of intake of more than four weeks considerably increase the risk of virilization symptoms. Female athletes who have no difficulties with Proviron obtain good results with 25 mg Proviron/day and 20 mg Tamoxifen/day and, in combination with a diet, report an accelerated fat breakdown and continuously harder muscles.
Non-medical users of anabolic steroids often “stack” different anabolic steroids over the course of a “cycle” of use. They also administer various ancillary drugs and substances to enhance the desired effects of anabolic steroids or to minimize adverse side effects. The most common liquid (injectable) anabolic steroids encountered in these cases are (oil-based) esters of testosterone (., testosterone cypionate, testosterone enanthate, and testosterone propionate, and a blend of testosterone esters called Sustanon 250) or nandrolone (., nandrolone decanoate). Also popular are Equipoise (boldenone undecylenate) and trenbolone acetate and trenbolone enanthate, as well as the water-based injectable Winstrol (stanozolol). Popular oral anabolic steroids include methandrostenolone (Dianbol), oxandrolone (Anavar) and oxymetholone (Anadrol 50).
The Mesterolone hormone is not estrogenic. It does not aromatize and it carries no progestin nature. As a result, the side effects of Proviron will not include any related effects such as gynecomastia or excess water retention. Such adverse effects are impossible with this steroid. This will also greatly reduce the risk of high blood pressure as high blood pressure associated with anabolic steroid use is often due to extreme water retention. In fact, Proviron should provide an anti-estrogenic effect by preventing testosterone to estrogen conversion or at least tremendously slow it down.
