Primobolan Depot (methenolone enanthate)
Methenolone enanthate, is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) based anabolic steroid. It is an ester derivative of methenolone sold commonly under the brand name Primobolan Depot (injectable).
Methenolone itself is a long acting anabolic, with extremely low androgenic properties. In this preparation, an enanthate ester is added to the steroid, which causes a slow and gradual release from the site of injection.
When it interacts with the aromatase enzyme it does not form any estrogens. It is used by people who are very susceptible to estrogenic side effects, having lower estrogenic properties than nandrolone. Methenolone, in form of enanthate and acetate, is available as an injection or as an oral respectively. The injection is naturally regarded as having a higher bioavailability. It is an enanthate ester which is quite long-acting. Because it by-passes hepatic breakdown on the first pass, it also has a higher survival rate. The tablets are in a short-lived acetate form. Methenolone is not 17-alpha-alkylated, but 1-methylated for oral bioavailability. This reduces the stress on the liver, but also the availability. It is considered one of the safer steroids, meaning it has few side effects. Methenolone has no estrogenic side effects, and its effects on cholesterol levels and blood pressure are minimal.
It is possibly one of the safer anabolic steroids for females due to very low virilization effects in short-term usage. Of course, this is not a blanket-statement and individual results (dependent on doses and tolereance) will vary.
