Masteron Cycle, Dosage, Benefits and Side effects

Masteron has always been referred to as a unique drug for the varied properties it possesses. I recently read on a forum in one of the popular steroid sites about an amateur bodybuilder asking about a place where he could find a comprehensive account on Masteron. Though a lot has been talked about the drug on numerous platforms, a detailed analysis of the steroid with its benefits along with side effects and other properties are hard to find.

Since I am an amateur bodybuilder myself and have employed the steroid to achieve my muscle gains, I thought to share my experience about the usage of this drug and other important properties that this anabolic steroid possesses.

Chemical Properties

Well, to start with, Masteron is the market name given for the compound Drostanolone, also known to many as Drolban. It stands under the Systematic IUPAC name, (2R,5S,8R,9S,10S,13S,14S,17S)-17-hydroxy- 2,10,13-trimethyl-1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,11,12,14,15,16,17 – tetradecahydrocyclopenta[a]phenanthren-3-one. Chemically its molecular mass is 304.46 g/mol and is often written under the formula C20H32O2. Masteron is a part of the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) family as is apparent from its chemical name, 2a-methyl-dihydro-testosterone propionate. It exhibits an anabolic/androgenic ratio of 62:25.

Medical Use

Apart from being used by the bodybuilding fraternity, Masteron is widely employed for treating a number of ailments, particularly certain forms of breast cancer such as mastectomy, gynecomastia etc. For example, Masteron dose when paired with Tamoxifen is known to have shown some great results than Chemotherapy to patients asked for immediate objective responses. Its most prominent feature is that it does not aromatize into estrogen when administered in the body for medication nor does it have any progesteronic effects. In fact upon ingestion in the blood stream, Masteron is known to interact with the aromatase enzyme to inhibit the aromatization of other steroids as well into estrogen. It might also interact with estrogen as a blocker at the receptor sites. It is through this mechanism that Masteron helps fight cancer.

Unlike other steroids, Masteron is not clinically used for weight gain which makes it a very unique steroid from others.


Masteron is considered to have low anabolic to androgenic ratio which makes it a popular drug to be used during the pre-contest phases by sportspersons. In fact it is widely quoted as a ‘cutting’ or ‘pre-contest’ drug by the bodybuilding as well as sports fraternity the world over. Since Masteron inhibits the aromatization of estrogen, it is considered to be a safe option by bodybuilders as it helps combat progesteronic side effects in its users. Studies on the steroid have revealed that if Masteron is made a part of your steroid cycle, then you need not use other ‘ancillary’ drugs to avoid conversion of compounds into estrogen.

Another major benefit that this androgenic steroid renders to its user is helping in the development of a perfect musculature. Since Masteron is a derivative of DiHydroTestosterone, it possesses properties which lead to the toning and hardening of the muscle fibers. It also promotes the addition of just the right muscle mass required by bodybuilders. Another advantage of this unique steroid which comes into picture is that it aids in the cutting of extra flab from the body.

Professionals who’ve used Masteron more often than we amateurs do say that the androgenic properties of this drug are stronger than what is written in papers. In other words, Masteron apart from rendering the ‘hard muscled’ look also causes increased aggression in the user. Its nature of reducing the fat and increasing the aggression helps make workout more effective which is the ideal recipe for professionals taking part in competitions.

As far as Masteron causing toxicity to the liver is concerned, very few reports of people complaining of the same have been confirmed. In fact those found to have damaged their liver due to Masteron intake have been the ones who ingested higher than prescribed quantity of the drug for a prolonged period of time.

Active life and Detection period

Drostanolone Propionate as this drug is more commonly addressed has an active life of 2 to 3 days in the human body. It is imperative to note that it can be detected up to 3 weeks after the steroid cycle is over. Professing intending to employ this drug should accordingly plan its administration during their training regime.


Masteron is commonly known to be available as capsule and injections only.


If you are looking for a safe and a convenient place to buy Masteron from, then the best place would be the internet. All you have to do is find a site which is genuine, has discreet policies on shipping and refunds and gives you a detailed account about the properties, benefits and side effects of the drug before you order it from the store. Make sure you know about the laws governing the import of the particular steroid in your country to avoid any legal hassles later.

Dosage Cycle

There is so specific formulation about the exact manner of Masteron intake. However, based on experience, a dose 100mg of Masteron on an everyday basis is known to have given good results. Some people also recommend administering the drug every alternate day to avoid the risk of side effects. As the steroid cycle progresses, its dosage can be increased gradually up to 200-350 mg per week.

The most common site of taking Masteron injections are mainly the buttocks. Administering the steroid everyday on the same site can be painful. Hence it is advised to change the site of injections alternatively. Other site where this steroid can be injected is the outer aspect of the thigh. It must be mentioned here that even though this steroid is rapidly absorbed by the body, it has comparatively shorter half life. For improved results, it works best if Masteron dosage is combined with other anabolic steroid like Winstrol and Anavar. Many professionals are known to have added Clomid in their regime as well during the wash out period of the steroid.

It is strictly advised that Masteron should not be taken for more than 3-4 weeks at a stretch to save the body from getting immune to its effect

Side Effects

Normally very few side effects of Masteron have been reported. It is only if the drug is taken for a very long duration of time and in abused quantities that side effects seem to appear. Some of them include fatigue, development of acne and oily skin, depression, anxiety, anger, hair loss and aggressiveness.
