Proviron or Pro-v is an interesting drug. Proviron is technically a steroid. Proviron has no anabolic activity though. Its clinical use is to replace androgen content in the male for men who are being treated for low sperm count and also low sex drive. For the purpose of fertility, pro-v is also combined with many other drugs. For our purposes, think of it as a dual drug for zilching out estrogen as well as offering some insurance against a loss of libido during your cycles. This is an awesome benefit. Personally I have used pro-v with a deca only cycle when trying to stay away from test (I am an androgen head), and pro-v did a noticeable job at keeping my sex drive up to where it usually is when I am on test. It was able to accomplish this great feat with only one, 50mg tab a day. I used IP’s little yellow tabs. Don’t know if you’ve seen them but they are great. To be truthful, I don’t really know if they are made anymore. Either way, 50mg of a legit pro-v per day will offer you great assurance in sustaining your libido. I realize that I speak of this often, but it is key to being able to enjoy your cycles and I find it is also closely related to appetite. This is completely anecdotal but when the sex drive is high, the appetite tends to be high, and you can grow much better with less anabolic steroids. I would trade a ravenous appetite any day over being on a ton of juice with no appetite when bulking and mass is the goal. It is the food after all, that allows the juice to work its magic.
The side effects of Proviron will include the suppression of natural testosterone production, but it’s not as cut and dry compared to many steroids . The use of anabolic steroids, any anabolic steroid will suppress natural production; however, the rate of suppression varies greatly from one steroid to the next. In the case of Mesterolone, the total rate of suppression can be so minimal it can be insignificant. With standard Proviron doses, which normally fall in the 50-150mg per day range, the total suppression of natural testosterone production should be minimal of relatively no concern. When the dose surpasses the 150mg mark this will create a greater level of suppression, but there is no reason for any man to need a dose greater than 150mg per day. In theory, assuming your natural testosterone levels are in the high end optimal range, the individual could implement a cycle of Proviron and a moderate suppressive steroid at a low dose such as Anavar and forgo the need of exogenous testosterone supplementation. However, the Anavar dose would need to be very low and natural levels very high. Most men will still need exogenous testosterone, especially when we consider standard anabolic steroid cycles .
+) Diet was logged throughout Cycle #1 and mirrored into Cycle #2 - same meal sizes, portions, macro-nutrient breakdowns and mealtimes.
+) Training was logged throughout Cycle #1 and mirrored into Cycle #2 (however, an overall increase of ~5% resulting from the first cycle was carried forward).
+) Training time was consistent, same with intensity - I had the same job, so this control was relatively easy to adhere towards.
+) BF% monitored constantly throughout both cycles - BF% remained the same, with a +/- 1% when on cycle due to a tiny bit of bloat
