About Drostanolone Enanthate
In 1970’s and 1980’s, Drostanolone Propionate become very popular among competitive bodybuilders. Due to the Propionate ester, Drostanolone Propionate must be injected minimally three times per week. Because of the need for frequent injections, many labs began manufacturing the Drostanolone hormone with the Enanthate ester attached. Drostanolone Enanthate is the same anabolic steroid as Drostanolone Propionate, the only difference in is the attached ester, which affects the drug’s active life and release into the body. Thanks to this, Drostanolone Enanthate does not need to be injected as frequently as Drostanolone Propionate.
Drostanolone Enanthate is well known for being one of the only anabolic steroids that carries strong anti-estrogenic properties. This anabolic steroid cannot increase estrogen levels. Bodybuilders welcome this due to estrogen often being difficult to control with many steroids and lower estrogen levels often leading to a harder and more defined look during the cutting phase.
Drostanolone has a binding affinity to the androgen receptor that is five times greater than testosterone, which not only produces a harder look it can also have a positive impact on fat loss. All anabolic steroids can help improve the metabolic rate, but those with a strong androgen binding affinity can have an impact on direct lipolysis.
Drostanolone Enanthate effects
For the recreational bodybuilder, Drostanolone Enanthate is still a good choice for a cutting cycle. You may not end up as hard as the competitive bodybuilder due to not being quite as lean, but hardness will appear nonetheless. However, if there is a significant layer of fat coving the body it may be very hard to find any noticeable benefit in terms of hardness and definition. This truly is a steroid that works best when already lean in regards to hardness.
Drostanolone Enanthate is also a good choice for the athlete looking for a boost in strength. Most steroid users only use Drostanolone Enanthate when cutting, when calories are low and strength is necessarily diminished.
Drostanolone Enanthate is not really good for the bulking cycle. The Drostanolone hormone doesn’t promote significant growth. Some growth may occur especially with a very high dose, but there are far better options.
Drostanolone Enanthate administration
Most men will dose Drostanolone Enanthate at 300-500mg per week. The total weekly dose may be split into two equal size injections per week, such as one on Monday and one on Thursday. Total use will last anywhere from 6-12 weeks depending on need.
Because of the potential for virilization, Drostanolone Enanthate is not recommended for women. Drostanolone Propionate versions should be considered instead.
Drostanolone Enanthate side effects
Drostanolone Enanthate is a relatively side effect friendly anabolic steroid. There are numerous possible side effects of Drostanolone Enanthate, but compared to many anabolic steroids it falls into the semi-mild category. Most men will find this steroid to be well tolerated. Virilization symptoms can be strong but controllable with the right plan.
Drostanolone Enanthate does not carry or possess any estrogenic related side effects. Gynecomastia and water retention are impossible with this anabolic steroid. Anti-estrogens are not needed due to this steroid’s use but that does not mean they won’t be needed at all depending on the other steroids that may or may not be used with it.
The androgenic side effects of Drostanolone Enanthate may include acne, hair loss in men predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. If you are predisposed to male pattern baldness, this steroid is well known for speeding up hair loss and should be avoided if that is a concern.
Drostanolone Enanthate can also promote virilization symptoms in women: body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. It is very possible to use this steroid without these issues, although genetic sensitivity will play a role. If symptoms begin to show simply discontinue use and they will rapidly go away. It is when virilization symptoms are allowed to set in that they become a problem and in some cases irreversible. It is however recommended for the female users to choose Drostanolone Propionate as it will clear the body faster should the issues arise.
The Drostanolone hormone can have a negative impact on cholesterol. Drostanolone Enanthate may increase LDL (bad cholesterol) and decrease HDL (good cholesterol). The total impact on cholesterol will not be as strong as with most oral steroids, however will be much greater than compared to steroids like Testosterone or Nandrolone. Elevated blood pressure is also possible but not common.
Cholesterol management is very important when using the Drostanolone hormone. If you suffer from high cholesterol you will want to avoid this anabolic steroid. If you are healthy enough for use, maintaining a cholesterol friendly lifestyle is very important. A healthy diet with plenty of omega fatty acids and one that is low in simple sugars and saturated fats is a good place to start. Regular cardiovascular activity is also important, even if it’s simply taking a walk.
Drostanolone Enanthate will suppress natural testosterone production. The use of exogenous testosterone in all male Drostanolone users is imperative if they are to avoid a low testosterone condition. A standard testosterone replacement therapy dose of testosterone (Testosterone Cypionate, Testosterone Enanthate or Testosterone Propionate) is enough to remedy the suppression problem. This does not mean more cannot be used, but at minimum 100mg per week will be needed in most cases.
Once the use of Drostanolone Enanthate has ended and the hormone along with any and all other steroidal compounds has cleared the body, natural testosterone production will begin again. Pre-use levels will not return overnight; it will take several months for this to occur. Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plans are generally recommended in order to boost production and increase the odds of recovery.
Drostanolone Enanthate is not toxic to the liver and cannot cause damage or stress to this primary organ.
