Proviron, also popular as provibol, is actually anti-estrogenic compound. It acts by blocking the estrogenic receptors in the brain that in turn promotes the release of gonadotrophins from the brain that induce the testes to synthesize more testosterone. It doesn’t possess any direct anabolic or androgenic activity. Initially, it was used to treat both men and women suffering from acute anxiety and depression. Later, a tiring amount of studies and research revealed about its incredible caliber of triggering the testoterone synthesis. Proviron is composed of mesterolone compound that actually performs the function.
Why to use
The drug is an anti-aromatic compound that prevents its aromatization of anabolic steroids into estrogen. Thus, in turn, it prevents the undesired effects of excessive estrogen production in the body. It can be combined with Nolvadex for best outcomes. Both the drugs are anti-aromatic combinations but with different mechanism of actions yet complementing each other. Proviron prevents the aromatization of anabolic by-products and Nolvadex blocks the estrogen receptor cells, causing the inhibition estrogen formation that actually produces the undesired symptoms at the end of steroid of cycles.
Proviron is generally recommended a normal oral dose of 25 mg 2-3 times a day that can be continued for several without any noticeable outcomes, followed by a maintenance therapy of few months. The oral doses of the drug get rapidly absorbed in the blood stream. It has a very long survival rate as its half-life is close to 12-24 hours nearly. Its use strictly prohibited for children, pregnant females, allergenic individuals, in cases of liver dysfunction and prostrate cancer.
Some rare side-effects have been reported in Proviron users. These include
Loss of libido
Deepening of voice
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 it is well-tolerated by the liver 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 over-stimulation 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 it 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 this drug 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.
Promifen (Clomid) is only taken once a day. Experts in the field of body building suggest that it be used alone or in combination with low potency anabolic steroids. Most body builders take anabolic steroids for a few months and then switch over to Clomid. The Promifen (Clomid) provides the surge in testosterone and also prevents the development of breast enlargement. The exact timing of when to start Clomid is not known but it is recommended that once the steroid drugs are stopped, Promifen (Clomid) should be started within 7-10 days.
