Proviron (Mesterolone) belongs to the group of medicines known as androgens, which are male sex hormones. It is used to treat disorders in men where the body does not make enough natural androgen. It works by supplementing the amount of male hormone that body produces naturally.
Proviron is a dihydro derivative of testosterone. It is useful in the treatment of hypogonadism in males, where the testes do not produce enough testosterone. It may benefit men with infertility due to hypogonadism.
Proviron is used to replace testosterone in men with hypogonadism. Male hypogonadism is a condition when the body does not produce enough testosterone. Testosterone is a natural male hormone, known as an androgen, which controls normal sexual development in men.
The Proviron hormone will also carry a strong binding affinity to the androgen receptor. It promote the functionality of other steroids to a degree but more importantly promote enhanced metabolic activity through direct lipolysis. Then we're left with the final issue that surrounds Proviron as a fertility medication.
Proviron is an anabolic steroid that does not suppress gonadotropins similarly to other anabolic steroids. With minimal suppression and its extremely strong androgenicity, this will enhance sperm production as androgens are necessary to spermatogenesis stimulation. This not only enhances the amount of sperm produced but greatly and equally important enhances the quality of the sperm. Before we go any further understand Proviron does have the ability to suppress gonadotropins, but there's a line that has to be crossed for notable suppression to interfere with sperm production. This will make sense once we dive into the side effects section.
Proviron is used in patients with prostate cancer, breast cancer, tumor in liver, very high calcium levels and those with allergy to the medication.
