Drostanolone Propionate is an anabolic androgenic steroid that is a therapeutic agent that provides a popular cutting steroid among bodybuilders, which is where Drostanolone Propionate is currently most commonly found. The steroid is, however, still tremendously popular in competitive bodybuilding cycles and often considered essential to contest preparation.
Functions & Traits
Drostanolone Propionate is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derived anabolic steroid. Specifically, Drostanolone Propionate is the DHT hormone that has been structurally altered by the addition of a methyl group at the carbon 2 position, this protects the hormone from the metabolic breakdown by the 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme, which is found in the skeletal muscle. It also greatly increases the hormone’s anabolic nature. This simple structural change is all it takes to create Drostanolone, and from here the small/short Propionate ester is attached in order to control the hormone’s release time. Drostanolone Enanthate can also be found through some underground labs, which does not have to be injected as frequently, but it is somewhat rare compared to the Propionate version. The majority of all Drostanolone Propionate on the market will be Drostanolone Propionate.
On a functional basis, Drostanolone Propionate is well-known for being one of the only anabolic steroids with strong anti-estrogenic properties. Not only does this steroid carry no estrogenic activity, but it can actually act as an anti-estrogen in the body. This is why it has been effective in the treatment of breast cancer. In fact, the combination of Drostanolone Propionate and Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate) has been shown to be far more effective than chemotherapy in the treatment of inoperable breast cancer in postmenopausal women. This also makes it a popular steroid among bodybuilders as it could actually prohibit the need for an anti-estrogen when used in the right cycle. This will also prove advantageous during the cutting phase due to the hardening effects it can provide.
Drostanolone Propionate carries relatively low anabolic and androgenic ratings; however, these ratings are somewhat misleading. It’s important to remember DHT, the basis of Drostanolone Propionate, is five times more androgenic than testosterone with a much stronger biding affinity to the androgen receptor. This again promotes a harder look and can also enhance fat loss. Most all anabolic steroids are well-noted for enhancing the metabolic rate, but strong androgens have a tendency to directly promote lipolysis.
As an anabolic, Drostanolone Propionate isn’t well-known for promoting gains in lean muscle mass. It has never been used for muscle wasting in a therapeutic sense and will almost always be found in cutting plans among performance athletes. It can, however, promote significant boosts in strength, which could prove beneficial to an athlete who may not necessarily be looking for raw mass.

1. What is Drostanolone Propionate
Drostanolone Propionate is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derived anabolic steroid. Specifically, Drostanolone propionate is the DHT hormone that has been structurally altered by the addition of a methyl group at the carbon 2 position, This protects the hormone from the metabolic breakdown by the 3 hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme, which is found in the skeletal muscle. It also greatly increases the hormone’s anabolic nature. This simple structural change is all it takes to create Drostanolone, and from here the small/short Propionate ester is attached in order to control the hormone’s release time.
2. Suggested Uses/Cycles
Due to the effects of Drostanolone propionate on estrogen related side effects, Drostanolone propionate is a very useful tool (especially in competitive bodybuilding) when cutting. As higher levels of estrogen result in water retention, Drostanolone propionate inhibits water retention, and many users claim that their muscles feel very full and tight on Drostanolone propionate, with it giving them amazing ‘muscle pumps’ in the gym. Use of Drostanolone propionate (in combination with other appropriate meds) at low body fat levels results in the user seeing fine detail of the muscles being accentuated, such as striations and the fine details of the muscle.
Drostanolone propionate helps draw out the water from between the skin and the muscle giving this very cut look (at low body fat levels). Not many other AS medicines can give such effects on muscle detail as those seen with Drostanolone propionate.
Despite these effects of Drostanolone propionate, it is a rather weak AS in itself. One would hardly benefit at all from use of Drostanolone propionate on its own, and furthermore use of Drostanolone propionate alone may result in loss of libido due to shutdown of the body’s natural testosterone production.
For these reasons, it is always recommended to stack Drostanolone propionate with other steroids.
Drostanolone propionate may work in a synergistic fashion with other AS medicines to amplify their effects (for example with testosterone as described above).
Drostanolone propionate would however not be recommended for beginner use as it is not needed at this starting out level.
3. Side effects of Drostanolone Propionate
In many ways, Drostanolone propionate is a fairly side effect friendly anabolic steroid. Side effects of Drostanolone propionate use most certainly exist, but most men will find this steroid highly tolerable. As for females, virilization symptoms can be strong with this steroid, but we will also find they can be managed with the right plan. In order to understand the side effects of Drostanolone propionate, we have broken them down into their separate categories along with all you need to know.
Drostanolone propionate does not aromatize and it does not carry any progestin nature making estrogenic side effects impossible with this steroid. This means gynecomastia and water retention will not be concerns. It also means high blood pressure that is sometimes caused by excess water retention will not be a concern. An anti-estrogen is not needed due to this steroid’s use; as discussed it can have anti-estrogenic effects itself. However, depending on the specific cycle/stack that’s implemented, an anti-estrogen may be needed.
The side effects of Drostanolone propionate can include those of an androgenic nature. Androgenic side effects can include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. Thankfully this hormone carries a moderate level of total androgenic activity despite being a direct derivative of the potent androgen DHT. However, individual sensitivity will play a strong role, this steroid is well-known for greatly enhancing male pattern baldness in sensitive men far more than many anabolic steroids.
An important note; the Drostanolone hormone is not metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. This is the enzyme responsible for reducing testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. In the case of Drostanolone propionate, it’s already DHT; there is no reduction. As there is no reduction, there is no metabolism and nothing to inhibit. This means the androgenic nature of Drostanolone propionate will not be strongly affected by a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor such as Finasteride.
Due to its androgenic nature, Drostanolone propionate can produce virilization symptoms in women. Virilization symptoms can include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. Virilization symptoms have been well-noted in breast cancer treatment plans, but this is normally due to the necessary high doses used to treat such a condition. In a performance capacity, it should be possible to use this steroid without related symptoms with a low dose. However, while individual response will dictate quite a bit, this will not be a primary recommended steroid for female athletes. If it is used and related symptoms begin to show, discontinue use immediately and they will fade away.
If the symptoms are ignored, it is very possible they may set in and become irreversible.
Drostanolone propionate can have a significant effect on cholesterol. This can result in an increase in LDL cholesterol, as well as a decrease in HDL cholesterol with the strongest emphasis on the latter. The total affect on cholesterol will not be as strong as often found in many oral steroids, specifically C17-alpha alkylated steroids. However, the total affect on cholesterol management will be stronger than compared to Nandrolone compounds or the testosterone hormone. It is also possible that Drostanolone propionate could have a slight negative impact on blood pressure, but this will be a non-issue for most.
Due to the cholesterol effects of Drostanolone, cholesterol management becomes very important with this steroid. Far more important than with basic testosterone cycles or stacks including a basic 19-nor. If you already suffer from high cholesterol you should not use this anabolic steroid. If you are healthy enough for use, maintaining a cholesterol friendly lifestyle is very important. Not only does this mean a healthy diet, but it should be one that includes plenty of omega fatty acids, is limited in saturated fats as well as simple sugars. Plenty of cardiovascular activity is also advised.
Drostanolone propionate will significantly suppress natural testosterone production making exogenous testosterone therapy important when using this steroid. Failure to include exogenous testosterone will lead most men to a low testosterone condition, which not only comes with numerous possible symptoms but is also extremely unhealthy.
As most will use Drostanolone propionate in a cutting cycle, it’s very common not to want to use a lot of testosterone due to the high levels of estrogenic activity it can provide. If this is the case, you will find a low dose of 100-200mg per week of testosterone to be enough to combat suppression and give you the needed testosterone.
Once Drostanolone propionate is discontinued and all exogenous steroidal hormones have cleared your system, natural testosterone production will begin again. Prior levels will not return to normal over night, this will take several months. Due to the slow recovery, Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plans are often recommended. This will speed up the recovery greatly; however, it won’t bring your levels back to their peak, this will still take time. A PCT plan will ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise and significantly cut down on the total recovery time. This natural recovery does assume no prior low testosterone condition existed. It also assumes no damage was done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) through improper supplementation practices.
Drostanolone propionate is not a hepatotoxic anabolic androgenic steroid and will present no stress or damage to the liver.
4. Drostanolone Propionate Reviews
In some performance enhancing circles, Drostanolone propionate is viewed as a relatively weak anabolic steroid. This is largely due to the steroid having low mass promotion abilities, and many tend to equate quality steroids to their mass promotion characteristics. Some also tend to forget that while a steroid may be a quality one, it will not present notable benefits unless you are very lean. This tends to lead many to having a skewed perception of Drostanolone propionate due to this improper thinking. This is a very valuable anabolic steroid, but you must understand the purpose of use and the benefits it can provide if such beneficial rewards are going to be gained. Understand that raw mass promotion is not the end all be all of progress; understand the total purpose of use of a steroid and when to use it and you will find Drostanolone propionate to be a very valuable anabolic steroid.
