Side Effects of Primobolan Depot

The side effects of Primobolan Depot are in many ways greatly appreciated; not on the basis of side effects being desired, but on the basis of this being one of the more side effect friendly steroids at our disposal. While we've already gone over such effects in the profile page, we want to look at the of Primobolan Depot with a little more depth; especially in-regards to a myth that has survived for so long. Even so, this will not change this steroid's mild nature, but it will hopefully open the eyes of some who have for so long believed in a falsehood.

Before we go any further, before we dive into the actual side effects of Primobolan Depot there are a few important things to discuss. While we will discuss the side effects as well as the means of prevention, it's important to remember we are all unique individuals. On this basis, we all react to varying things a little differently, and even with responsible use some may find they have a problem. This is not a unique concept to Primo or any anabolic steroid; in-fact, it is a concept shared by all things we put in our body steroidal or not. Further, as with all things of a medicinal or hormonal nature, we must recognize the more we take the greater the risk, and as this is the case, you must find the right balance; you are strongly encouraged to seek out such information in the doses section.

Primary Side Effects of Primobolan Depot:

Primobolan Depot is the injectable version of the Methenolone hormone, and as such, the side effects of Primobolan Depot will be almost identical. Of course, as the Depot version is far superior to the oral tab due to it lacking the C17-aa nature, its greater potency can make side effects a bit more problematic. Even so, with responsible use very few healthy adults will have a problem with this steroid, and that includes many women. At any rate, as a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derived anabolic steroid, the side effects of Primobolan Depot will largely be those of a DHT nature; no surprise there.

A non-aromatizing steroid, Primo cannot cause estrogenic related issues, and this is why so many men thoroughly enjoy this steroid. Issues such as gynecomastia and excess water retention are impossible with this steroid, and as such high blood pressure is rarely a concern. Even so, we still have to deal with the DHT factor, and as a result the three primary DHT related effects:

Hair-Loss: men who are predisposed to male-pattern baldness may find Primo like all DHT compounds to cause them to lose some of their hair; they were going to lose it anyway, but the DHT buildup may speed it up. As DHT has the ability to deteriorate the hair-follicles, men who are predisposed often find the use of the 5a-reductase inhibitor Finasteride to be very useful as it can offer protection. Finasteride is not a guarantee; however, for many men it can work. For those who are not predisposed to male-pattern baldness, the side effects of Primobolan Depot cannot include hair-loss.

Acne: while most anabolic steroids can cause acne, DHT compounds are notorious; especially in those who are already acne sensitive; those who are not will rarely have a problem. At any rate, in-order to afford protection, it is necessary you keep your skin clean and dry at all times; this may very well mean an extra shower or two a day for some of you.

Prostate Enlargement: by far, of all the side effects of Primobolan Depot this one is the most concerning. Large buildups of DHT can cause prostate enlargement, and on this basis it is imperative you do not already suffer from prostate issues if you are going to supplement with this or any anabolic steroid. For most men, if they supplement responsibly, assuming there are no underlying issues they will be fine; of course, if a large DHT buildup is allowed you may have an issue. If for any reason prostate enlargement occurs, this is where you will find the 5a-reductase inhibitor Finasteride to be truly useful; after all, it's an androgen suppressor, and the androgen DHT is the problem.

Female Side Effects of Primobolan Depot:


Primo is well-known for being one of the few anabolic steroids females can supplement with safely; it's not as safe as Anavar, but it's high on the list. The problem with female steroidal supplementation largely surrounds virilization due to increased androgenic activity, and as a result, body-hair growth, clitoral enlargement and a deepening of the vocal chords can occur. Thankfully, Primobolan Depot carries an extremely low virilization rating, and this means with responsible use most females will find such effects never occur. Of course, once again we're faced with the individualistic nature of all human beings, and even with responsible use some women may have a problem. If for any reason virilization symptoms start to appear, don't freak out yet; simply discontinue use at their onset and they will fade away. Even so, if the symptoms begin to show and you ignore them and continue to supplement despite this action, you may very well find you have a permanent problem.


It is often stated by many performance enhancing athletes that the side effects of Primobolan Depot do not include natural testosterone suppression, and on this basis, many use this steroid as a bridge. We won't waste your time with a lot buildup, instead here's the direct truth; yes, Primo is suppressive. A mere 25mg injection, a single 25mg injection is enough to suppress 50% of your natural testosterone production. Absolutely, this may not be enough to bottom your testosterone levels out depending on what else you're using, but it is more than enough to cause a low testosterone condition. As low testosterone is extremely unhealthy, male Primo cycles that do not include exogenous testosterone cannot be advised. It should also be noted; just because you do not suffer from erectile dysfunction does not mean you do not suffer from low testosterone. Many men use this as their gauge, and it is a horrible way to gauge such a condition. Absolutely, erectile dysfunction is a symptom, but it's hardly the only one.
