Anyone considering using Proviron (Mesterolone) should know that this
is not a bulking steroid. Not all steroids are beneficial for gaining
mass and this is one that falls into another category in terms of its
usefulness. In fact this is a steroid that is rarely used to give you
direct results itself, but instead to work with the other compounds
you’re using in what is known as an ancillary compound.
So the results from Mesterolone, when combined with other steroids, are focused on:
1) Enhances the effects of other steroids
By binding with SHBG your levels of free and available testosterone are increased which in turn boosts the effects of other steroids being used. The level of hardness you can achieve with other cutting steroids is also enhanced with Proviron, particularly with compounds like Winstrol, Anavar and Masteron.
2) Minimizing and combating the effects of estrogen
As a result of rising estrogen levels through the use of other aromatizing steroids like testosterone, Proviron can help slow or even halt these other steroids from aromatizing which prevents conversion to estrogen. This is achievable even at a low dose of 50mg each day which can greatly help reduce or hold off the gynecomastia and fluid retention caused by other aromatizing steroids. The result is a physique that is noticeably harder and drier – exactly what is required in a cutting and contest preparation phase.
3) PCT Compound
Another potential use for Proviron is as a PCT compound but it is generally not recommended and can be a common mistake made by beginners in selecting this compound for PCT because of its known anti-estrogen qualities.
While that is desirable, the downside is that Proviron still causes some testosterone suppression and no matter how mild, this is exactly the opposite of what we need during PCT. So your expected results if using Proviron for PCT is not going to be anywhere as impressive and effective as you’ll see when using the standard PCT drugs of choice like Nolvadex or Clomid which are often combined with hCG.
