I bought Proviron a while ago and decided to run it this last week very briefly. It’s important to note I ended up on this website because I took an aromatase inhibitor. So maybe the pathophysiology is different between propecia users and me. Who knows.
Day 1 25 mg Higher energy noted right away. A little increase in libido. Emotions felt less blunt.
Day 2 50 mg Wow, I felt a very high libido at one point in the morning. I haven’t felt that strong of a libido in 3 years. My energy was very high, and working out was fun (cardio + whatever weights I have available at home) and more explosive. I felt much more assertive. Blood pressure was a little high 130/80 measured over several times of the day and I felt a little nervous about that. My heart rate was high at one point, too (100 BPM). I scaled my dose down after that.
Emotions felt awesome today, and I felt clearheaded. I felt way more connected to friends. I felt happy and sad, unlike the anhedonia that leaves me feeling very flat and neutral.
Day 3 25 mg Woke up with a strong morning erection, albeit it was painful. Skin was more oily. Libido was higher, but definitely not cured or normal. Scrotum is still tight. Emotions felt good, and sleep felt deeper.
Day 4 25 mg Skin is even more oily. Painful morning erection again. Now, I’m starting to feel tired and a little bit cheeky. My mood is okay, but I can sense a crabbiness. Libido is still higher than normal, but nothing like PFS baseline. Towards the end of the day, I feel anxious and heart racing. Sleep was good.
Day 5 25 mg Morning erection present. Woke up fine, but felt things coming to a halt. I felt really uneasy and anxious at one point in the day which made me end the trial. My libido was was higher, but emotions felt all over the place in a bad sort of way. Energy was starting to feel low. Since I was feeling the positives come to an end, I stopped it.
Day 6 no drug Morning erection present. Felt tired today, but still a residual libido leftover from the drug. Energy was okay, and motivation was poor (could be quarantine though). Emotional clarity is reversing unfortunately.
Day 7 (today) no drug No morning erection. Libido was actually high in the morning which was nice. It’s only 3 PM right now and I’ve been doing some work, but I feel okay energy wise and motivation wise. I basically feel a little bit above PFS baseline.
I may randomly take Proviron for a couple of days on and off and I will update this if I do. I decided to take it because of the Proviron trend going on in the forum. Overall, I got fast benefits from it, but felt poorly after a while. It’s important to know that Proviron binds SHBG and aromatase which can quickly cause changes in your hormones, especially if you’re using it without a testosterone base. I had high (55) SHBG tested a year ago. This will cause more free T, and also more free estrogen. However, since Proviron binds aromatase, less estrogen will form.
I don’t think this caused me any long term harm, but I stopped taking it because I was afraid it might if I continued. Especially since I had been feeling side effects from it. I might cycle it in the future by taking a pill for a couple of days in a row in the future and then stop.
Anyways, use at your own risk! Don’t go into Proviron blindly thinking it’s not going to hurt you. It could, or it could not. PFS and supplements are a gamble. I may be an idiot for trying things out, who knows. Most of the anectdotal reports online are with people using TRT or steroids at high levels and want to add Proviron to this mix. I found hardly any stories of people using Proviron by itself like I did. Using Proviron by itself probably has a different reaction than using it with Testosterone and other steroids.
Thought I’d share my experiences cause it’d be criminal not to.
