Orgasteron, a.k.a. normethandrolone, is essentially an oral version of the anabolic steroid nandrolone. Although no longer commercially available as a prescription medication, Orgasteron was produced in 2.5, 5, and 10 mg tablets. Reportedly, underground lab versions of this compound still exist.
Orgasteron is most often administered at the start of bulking cycles in 10-30 mg/day for 6-8 weeks. Taking Orgasteron on an empty stomach, to prevent it from competing with nutrients, promotes optimal absorption.
Traditionally, nandrolone is considered a very adaptable compound that can be easily incorporated into all types of cycles. However, Orgasteron is an exception, compliments of its c-17aa addition, which enhances both its anabolic and unfortunately androgenic properties as well. Due to its magnified 110-125 androgenic range, Orgasteron aromatizes more like a testosterone than a nandrolone, which also prevents it from being a good choice for cutting cycles. More popularly used within mass building cycles, its typically stacked with testosterone.
For the Indications/Purpose of Orgasteron see the Deca-Durabolin profile.
For the Indications/Purpose & Side Effects of Orgasteron see the testosterone propionate profile.
Since Orgasteron is manufactured in several countries it has a number of aliases some of which include Methalutin, Lutenin, Matdonal, and Orgasteone. It also goes by the generic names methylnandrolone and methlnortestosterone.
Like Deca, Orgasteron is a great mass builder at higher milligrams and fits nicely into bulking cycles with testosterones (enanthate, cypionate, and propionate), Trenbolone, and Dianabol. However, when stacked with anabolics like Anavar, Primobolan, Winstrol, and Oral Turinabol, Orgasteron can be an effective cutting cycle ingredient.
