A physician’s analysis of Proviron aka Mesterolone and its side effects and properties. Proviron is an oral steroid, but it’s not 17a alkylated and doesn’t act like most other steroids. Rather than building muscle, it is often used as a “wingman” for other steroids, increasing some of their effects while seeming to decrease estrogenic side effects. In this video I explain the science behind this “wingman” effect, and also cover why Proviron isn’t actually safe, and should not be used in place of testosterone esters as TRT. If you are considering taking Proviron or have taken it, please watch this video!

Stay Strong and Healthy,
As the Anabolic Doc, since 2003, I’ve provided men who are using or have used anabolic steroids a confidential, ethical and professional medical venue to discuss their use. I do NOT in any way support the use of any performance enhancing drugs – PEDs, anabolic steroid or other medicine for muscle building or body transformation. The “off-label” use of PEDs, as such agents is considered elicit and may lead to adverse health outcomes. Please consult an expert health professional regarding any medical agent and do NOT use any medicine without the explicit advice and supervision of an appropriate medical expert.
