Primobolan Depot aka Methenolone Enanthate is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) based anabolic steroid. It is an ester derivative of methenolone sold commonly under the brand names Primobolan (tablet form) or Primobolan Depot (injectable). 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. 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 are minimal. Methenolone is also not overly suppressive of the HPTA axis, although how suppressive is debatable. For this reason, many bodybuilders use it in between steroid cycles during their “off-time” to help maintain their gains and strength. 100mg per ml, 10ml vial =1000mg
LA Pharma Testosterone Cypionate , when this long-acting version of testosterone is injected, it becomes stored in what is known as a depot in the body, and slowly released over a short period of time. Peaking within 1-2 days after injection, the testosterone is then steadily released over the next 12 days and completely tapers out after approximately 3 weeks.
As with all testosterone products it has a strong anabolic activity, with a pronounced androgenic component. Thus it can provide significant gains in strength and muscle mass, as well a noticeable increase in libido. An added benefit, with all testosterone products is the relief of tendon pain, faster recuperation and an increase in the level and duration of physical output due to the oxygen rich blood along with an increase of red blood cells. Although when taken at reasonable dosages aromatisation should not be a problem, some patients may wish to use an anti-estrogen, this case a low dosage of Tamoxifen Citrate or Mesterolone would be appropriate.
The use of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) in addition to Clomiphene Citrate and Tamoxifen Citrate may also be beneficial at the conclusion of use in order to ensure balance in the hormone system.
Testosterone Cypionate is the most commonly prescribed form of testosterone in the United States of America. In fact, it is a bit of a rare find outside of the USA, with most places in the world deferring to the very similar Testosterone Enanthate.
In truth, I've used both and find no difference at all between the two. Testosterone Cypionate is identical with regards to results to any long acting testosterone. In the original Underground Steroid Handbook, Dan Duchaine said that users could feel more "kick" from this form over Enanthate, but I honestly haven't found that to be true personally.
The prime advantage of this product is the fact that it can be injected once per week and it gives some very good gains in strength and size. I would bet that many careers in bodybuilding and athletics were built with the long term use of this drug. I?ve used it at doses of 250-2,000 mg per week, and found that the best gains versus side effects are probably had somewhere below the 750 mg/week mark. Of course this is far below what many competitors in the upper ranks of bodybuilding use, but for the average (recreational) bodybuilder or athlete, the side effects above this dose do not constitute an acceptable trade off for the gains.

Testosterone and its derivate are made synthetically pharmaceutically as drugs for many different treatments. Pharmaceutical research of anabolic steroid is not focused a lot on muscle grow in healthy individuals but only in some aging related diseases like sarcopenia – the loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength as a result of aging. Osteoporosis is one of the aging diseases that is also sometimes treated with anabolic steroids. In all these treatments, serious hormonal misbalance is highly possible, and a reaction of other, not targeted tissues. Some of the side effects using anabolic steroids can lead to liver conditions like peliosis hepatis – blood-filled cysts replacing healthy liver cells. This condition is often diagnosed late when it is already life threatening to treat liver failure present or intra-abdominal bleeding start.
