Drospirenone is 8–10 times more potent as an antimineralocorticoid relative to spironolactone (3 mg drospirenone is equivalent to about 20–25 mg spironolactone in this regard  ).   It is more potent as an antiandrogen relative to spironolactone also but is less potent relative to cyproterone acetate , having about one-third the potency of this drug.   Progestogenic, antimineralocorticoid, and mild antiandrogenic effects have been observed in humans during treatment with drospirenone at a dosage range of to 4 mg per day orally. 
Injectable steroids are injected into muscle tissue, not into the veins. They are slowly released from the muscles into the rest of the body, and may be detectable for months after last use. Injectable steroids can be oil-based or water-based. Injectable anabolic steroids which are oil-based have longer half-life than water-based steroids. Both steroid types have much longer half-lives than oral anabolic steroids. And this is proving to be a drawback for injectables as they have high probability of being detected in drug screening since their clearance times tend to be longer than orals. Athletes resolve this problem by using injectable testosterone early in the cycle then switch to orals when approaching the end of the cycle and drug testing is imminent.
