Provimed is an post cycle steroid, this drug contains Mesterolone and is made by Balkan Pharmaceuticals.
Provimed is a synthetic, orally effective androgen which does not have any anabolic characteristics. Provimed is used in school medicine to ease or cure disturbances caused by a deficiency of male sex hormones. Many athletes, for this reason, often use Provimed at the end of a steroid treatment in order to increase the reduced testosterone production. This, however is not a good idea since Mesterolone has no effect on the body own testosterone production but as mentioned in the beginning only reduces or completely eliminates the dysfunctions caused by the testosterone deficiency. These are in particular impotence which is mostly caused by an androgen deficiency that can occur after the discontinuance of steroids, and infertility which manifests itself in a reduced sperm count and a reduced sperm quality. Provimed is therefore taken during a steroid administration or after discontinuing the use of the steroids, to eliminate a possible impotency or a reduced sexual interest. This, however does not contribute to the maintenance of strength and muscle mass after the treatment.
Some competitive bodybuilders will also add Mesterolone to their pre-contest preparation as many believe that it will improve muscle density and hardness. This could be attributed to the ability of the compound to decrease water retention and reduce the amount of circulating estrogen in the body, similar to many other androgenic compounds. However, as discussed earlier, there are several other drugs that could be substituted for mesterolone that are much more effective for this prupose.
Many steroid users who have had adverse reactions to testosterone, or otherwise do not wish to use testosterone in their cycle, will often add Mesterolone to their cycles for it’s ability to increase the libido of a user. Often times when a user does not include testosterone, or simply not enough testosterone in relation to the other compounds that he is using, libido will be reduced and including Mesterolone may help alleviate this. Obviously, the dihydrotestosterone effect of the compound plays a key role in this process.
