As per any pharmaceutical grade compound, there are some associated negative effects with proviron's utilisation. We’ll now outline what they are and how to combat them so that your time in cycle is memorable for exclusively positive reasons.
Proviron And Hair Loss
Being that high androgen levels have been linked with male pattern baldness development, it only makes sense that this is a concern when utilising proviron due to its androgenic properties.
Whilst this problem is unlikely to manifest, there are several products including DHT inhibitor shampoos and medications like rogaine that may help to alleviate this issue.
It’s worth noting that should this issue manifest, it is very likely to regress once the user ceases to use proviron - it isn’t a long lasting problem. Medical consultation would be wise for further advice if baldness began to set in.
You may also wish to try a 5 alpha reductase inhibitor to help reduce the amount of “masculinisation” occurring within the body as this is also a culprit for hair loss.
How Your Body Develops Tolerance For Proviron
This “side effect” is common in regards to almost all pharmaceutical grade compounds - if you take them on a regular basis over an extended period of time, then eventually your body will become accustomed to them and desensitize to their effects.
In this instance, it can mean that the hormonal restoration capabilities of proviron end up being diminished, which in turn may put you at risk. The best way to combat this taking place is to only run proviron in cycles as and when needed rather than on a continuous basis.
Proviron And Luteinising Hormone Suppression
This may seem somewhat contradictory being that luteinising hormone plays a vital part in the synthesis of testosterone, but you’ve got to remember that proviron is an anabolic steroid, and steroids can suppress our natural production of the hormones necessary to optimise homeostasis (hormonal balance.)
This is because the body comes to rely on an exogenous source of testosterone rather than having to use its innate capacities to produce it, therefore it suppresses its own production.
Proviron has been shown to reduce our levels of LH in some instances, therefore a proper PCT phase is always necessary to ensure that your organic capacity is able to restore fully.
High Dosage Side Effects And Risks
Though this one is typically considered to be a very mild steroid on the whole, there are some other associated side effects and risks in regards to its use.
These side effects and risks include, but are not limited to:
- Psychiatric disturbances such as depression, aggression, increased or decreased energy levels, elation or irritability
- Excessive hairiness
- Premature puberty
- Stunted growth
- Fluid retention
- Breast enlargement
- Increased sexual drive
Please consult with your doctor should any of these issues manifest in a potent fashion.
