TESTOSTERONE CYPIONATE BASIC INFORMATION
Testosterone Cypionate is a long ester testosterone that is similar to enanthate but not quite as popular. It’s has a slightly longer half-life than enanthate and very similar effects and can be used in a similar way to enanthate.. Testosterone is the hormone most responsible for muscular growth and recovery, and so adding extra testosterone will greatly enhance size and strength. Due to its high anabolic/high androgenic effects, many athletes used this drug in an off-season mass cycle. Water retention during administration of ENANTHATE was not reportedly as high as that realized during the use of OMNADREN… but darn close. Like all testosterone esters, Enanthate aromatized easily and has a high conversion rate to DHT. Those with prostate problems or who were sensitive to gyno and female pattern fat deposits, readily agreed that they should have either left it alone or taken steps to suppress estrogenic activity due to aromatization. Drugs such as Proviron and Nolvadex were often utilized for this reason. DHT conversion enzyme blockers such as Proscar were commonly co-administered with testosterones for the former reason. Testosterone is both highly anabolic and androgenic. This means it effects your growth as well as your sexual libido.
The downside of testosterone is that by adding extra testosterone your body will try to regulate it and eliminate the excess testosterone in a number of different manners. It will down regulate it by converting some to estrogen, and will stop natural production as well. This lead to estrogen related side effect as well as a suppression of your hormonal axis which will leave one in a testosterone deficient state once testosterone replacement is discontinued. The more common side effects of testosterone enanthate can include:
- pain and swelling at injection site
- hair growth
- gynecomastia (breast enlargement)
- more frequent erections
- erections that last longer than normal
- mood swings
We do not suggest the use of testosterone for women. It is highly androgenic and will easily cause virilization. There are a miriad of altered testoterone derivative that will help with muscular growth that are not as likely to cause the irreversible side effect of virilization; deepening of the voice, body hair growth, clitoral enlargement. Not something most women desire.
For Testosterone Cypionate dosages males inject 150-800mg weekly. Some people do use even higher dosages of course. Due to a plasma half-life of 4-5 days, injections are normally administered biweekly.
