Proviron 25 (mesterolone) is an androgenic steroid that is used primarily in the treatment of low testosterone levels in men. It is also used off-label to treat infertility, depression, and to enhance athletic performance.
Benefits of Proviron
The main benefit of Proviron is its ability to increase androgen levels in the body, which can improve mood, libido, and muscle mass. It can also help to reduce water retention and prevent the development of gynecomastia. Additionally, Proviron can be used to treat infertility caused by low sperm count or motility.
The recommended dose of Proviron for low testosterone treatment is typically 25-75 mg per day, taken in one or two doses. For infertility treatment, the recommended dose is 25 mg per day. The duration of treatment will depend on the individual’s medical history and response to the drug. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by a healthcare provider.
Proviron can cause some side effects, which may include acne, oily skin, hair loss, and increased facial and body hair. Some men may also experience mood changes, aggression, or sleep disturbances. Rare but serious side effects can include liver damage, heart disease, and prostate cancer. Men with a history of these conditions or who are at high risk for them should discuss the risks and benefits of Proviron with their healthcare provider.
The half-life of Proviron is approximately 12-24 hours. This means that it takes this amount of time for half of the drug to be eliminated from the body. As a result, it is usually taken once or twice a day to maintain steady levels in the bloodstream.
