Masteron Propionate is one of the most exotic androgenic/anabolic steroids (AAS) used by a sportsperson. Initially, it was originated and used as an anti-estrogen under the brand name ‘Masteril’ for treating breast cancer. It was largely used in conjunction with the Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM), Tamoxifen for the treatment of breast cancer, and decrease estrogen levels considerably in women undergoing such treatment.
The reality that Masteron Propionate was being used as an anti-estrogen hinges upon its some properties. Masteron Propionate is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which doesn’t change to estrogen thru means of aromatization. Due to various reasons, Masteron Propionate is used by muscle-builders while preparing for competition. The androgenic effect of Masteron Propionate can cause an obvious improvement in muscle mass and rigidity that can facilitate the bodybuilder to get the ‘ripped’ appearance if his body fat proportion is low enough.
Athletes rarely experience any side effects with this steroid. The main side effects of Masteron Propionate are gynecomastia, water retention, dangerous increases in blood pressure, male pattern baldness (MPB), increased aggression, and severe acne.
By suppressing the aromatase enzyme, Masteron Propionate would block the alteration of free testosterone to estrogen by the aromatization pathway. The normal dose of Masteron Propionate is 100 mg that is taken intravascularly every other day. It is better to inject Masteron Propionate every 2-3 days because of its short duration of effect. Popular steroids stacked with Masteron Propionate are Winstrol (stanozolol), Parabolan (trenbolone hexahydrobencylcarbonate) and oxandrolone.
Initially when Masteron Propionate was made, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) pharmacologically found it as a safe medication, even at high dosages. Dosages more than 150mg on a daily basis (that’s more than 1000mg a week) were counted as safe limits by the FDA. So the user does not misunderstand this information to use extreme quantities of Masteron Propionate. As in reality anything higher than 600mg a week is not going to give any more benefit than 500-600mg per week would give, thus excessive use would be a waste of money and injections.
