When used as an ancillary, it can be taken by male athletes and bodybuilders all throughout their cycle length at 50 – 100mg per day, as there is no limit to how long it can be utilized for. Some individuals prefer to also run Proviron as a PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) drug in order to reduce Estrogen levels and boost fertility. Although this can be done, there are much better compounds with similar (and stronger) effects for PCT. When the risk of even weak endogenous Testosterone suppression is thrown into the mix with Proviron, it is advised to avoid the use of Proviron for PCT purposes unless there are no other options available. During a period in which individuals are attempting to recover their natural endogenous Testosterone levels, any threat no matter how minimal to endogenous Testosterone production should be unwelcome and avoided at all costs.
The second most common reason is probably to address a fear that libido might be lost without it. It is true that when added to normal androgen levels, Proviron has an androgenic effect that in many cases improves libido. However, most anabolic steroids also have this same property. In a steroid cycle, adding Proviron accomplishes nothing further. Or in the case of anabolic steroids such as nandrolone ( Deca ) which for other reasons may adversely affect libido, Proviron provides no greater help against that than do various other anabolic steroids .
