Mestanolone is the 17α-methylated version of dihydrotestosterone (DHT).[1] The systematic name of mestanolone is: 17β-hydroxy-17α-methylandrost-3-one.[2] It is an orally bioavailable androgenic steroid that is highly androgenic while only slightly anabolic. It is incapable of aromatization and is not an agonist of the progesterone receptor.
