Methenolone Acetate - Methenolone Enanthate
Methenolone is a DHT-based steroid, when it interacts with the aromatase enzyme it does not form estrogens at all. That makes it ideal for use when cutting when excess estrogen is best avoided because of its retentive effects on water and fat. Methenolone is mostly only used in such instances, or by people who are very succeptible to estrogenic side-effects, because the anabolic activity of methenolone is slightly lower than that of nandrolone, quite likely because it is non-estrogenic.
Methenolone is a class I steroid working well at the androgen receptor but which apparently is ineffective in non-AR-mediated anabolic effects. Methenolone usually exists in the forms of methenolone acetate and methenolone enanthate.
Methenolone itself is a long acting anabolic, with extremely low androgenic properties. On the same note the anabolic effect is also quite mild, its potency considered to be slightly less than nandrolone decanoate on a milligram for milligram basis.
Methenolone displays many favorable characteristics, most which stem from the fact that methenolone does not convert to estrogen. Estrogen linked side effects should therefore not be seen at all when administering this steroid. Sensitive individuals need not worry about developing gynecomastia, nor should they be noticing any water retention with this drug. The increase seen with methenolone will be only quality muscle mass, and not the smooth bloat which accompanies most steroids open to aromatization. During a cycle the user should additionally not have much trouble with blood pressure values, as this effect is also related (generally) to estrogen and water retention. At a moderate dosage of 100-200mg weekly, methenolone should also not interfere with endogenous testosterone levels as much as when taking an injectable nandrolone or testosterone. This is very welcome, as the athlete should not have to be as concerned with ancillary drugs when the steroid is discontinued (a less extreme hormonal crash). At higher doses strong testosterone suppression may be noticed however, as all steroids can act to suppress testosterone production at a given dosage. Here of course an ancillary drug regimen may be indicated.
