Primobolan Benefits and Side Effects for Women: Uses and Precautions
A big topic on many bodybuilding forums relates to women looking for steroids to help increase muscle and improve overall training performance. Primobolan is one of those steroids that women will consider. In this article, I will discuss Primobolan benefits and side effects for women.
What is Primobolan?
Primobolan is an anabolic steroid that also goes by the name (Methenolone Acetate)
Primobolan is available in two presentations Primobolan (oral tablets) and Primobolan Depot which is an injectable. The steroid itself has some unique attributes which is why women consider using it.
One of the biggest concerns among women who consider using anabolic steroids of any kind are the side effects they can cause, in the case of Primobolan it has an anabolic rating of 90 and an androgenic rating of 45-55. The androgenic properties are always a concern because they are what cause masculinization in women. Women often consider taking Primobolan because it has a lower androgenic effect than other anabolic steroids.
The History of Primobolan
The Methenolone hormone was first introduced in 1962 by Squib, now (Bristol Myers – Squibb) Squib introduced both the oral pills and injectable Enanthate. Back then, they were sold as Nibal Depot (Injectable) and Nibal (Pills). After just a few years and poor success of the product, Schering would purchase the rights to the hormone (Methenolone) and re-introduce it into the market as Primobolan. Since then, it was never again produced in the U.S which is why it is known mainly as a European steroid.
