Proviron cycle is often used by bodybuilders but not everyone is using it correctly.
Actually this article intends to help you to in getting to know Proviron better and how to cycle it.
What is Proviron?
Proviron is the product name we know but its active substance is Mesterolone. That is what is working on the back. There may be some other trade names for Proviron. So to be sure that you are using what you think you are using look at the active substance, it must be – Mesterolone.
Proviron is considered a unique steroid because it is/was used as fertility aid in men which sounds controversial when it comes to steroids. Also Proviron is considered to be one of the oldest steroids on market, we dont know whether it is true or false but it does not matter for this article since we are not on history lesson now 🙂
Next interesting thing about Proviron is that it is not C17-alpha alkylated (C17-aa). Btw, Oral Primobolan is also not C17-alpa alkylated.
It has an androgenic rating of 30-40 and an anabolic rating of 100-150. (These comparisons were made by comparing against testosterone which has rating of 100 for both androgenic and anabolic characteristitcs)
So, Proviron is mostly used in cutting cycles or towards end of cutting cycles.
The type of Proviron cycle one may do will depend on his goals and experience but so far we know that it is mostly used for cutting goals.
So let’s see what it can do:
- Proviron has a strong binding affinity to Sex-Hormone-Binding-Globulin (SHBG) which means that the amount of free circulating testosterone will be increased.
- Proviron will interact with aromatase enzyme (it affects the conversion of testosterone to estrogen). Which means that it may slightly inhibit aromatase activity thus offer a little protection against high estrogen related side-effects.
- Proviron has a strong binding affinity to estrogen receptor. This will promote functionality of other steroids if user is on a steroid cycle and help burn more fat (via direct lipolysis).
- It is considered that Proviron cycle will not suppress natural testosterone production like other steroids and being strong androgen the conditions for spermatogenesis stimulation are there.
I just want to underline that Proviron will still suppress testosterone production if used at high dosage and too long. In other words if you do a 6 week Proviron at 75mg/day you wont need a PCT. If you exceed normal limits the testosterone production will be affected.
It looks like best time to do Proviron cycle is during cutting phases or towards end of a cutting cycle. Below is an example of solo Proviron steroid cycle.
We do not promote the use of anabolic steroids without a doctor’s prescription. The information we share is for entertainment purposes only.

Keep in mind that steroids are not magic and in order to get results user must train correct and hard, eat clean and keep right balance of carbs, protein and fats. Once per year bloodwork must be done in order to see what is going on inside your body and to keep an eye on health status. The guys who stay all year round on gear with no breaks are not wise.
