Testosterone Propionate

Functions and Traits

Testosterone Propionate is a short acting oil-based injectable formulation of testosterone. Testosterone inhibits gonadotropin secretion from the pituitary gland and ablates estrogen production in the ovaries, thereby decreasing endogenous estrogen levels. In addition, this agent promotes the maintenance of male sex characteristics and is indicated for testosterone replacement in hypogonadal males.

Benefits and Side Effects:

Research shows that after the puncture you will immediately feel a surge of strength, a trait linked with increased levels of the hormone in the body. That is, when the drug appears in the body, it is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, so it is felt after the first injection. Testosterone propionate benefits include:

  • Burning fat, increases muscle tone
  • Increases libido
  • Reduces the risk of ischemic/coronary heart disease
  • Increases muscle mass and strength

Side effects include:

  • Acne
  • Hair loss (or active growth on the body); also depends on the individual
  • Decrease in natural testosterone, usually restored in 2-3 months after dosage course.

Dosage and Administration:

Because of testosterone propionate’s short half-life, peak blood levels can be modulated via injection frequency. A daily propionate dosage can mimic the testosterone your body naturally produces.

Its half-life is shorter than the longer-acting esters of cypionate and enanthate; In fact, after a single injection of 50 mg, maximum concentration is reached after about 14 hours.

Strictly speaking, Testosterone propionate is used intramuscularly or subcutaneously in oil solutions 0.5-1 mL of 1% or 5% solution of the drug daily, 1-2 days from 2 weeks to 1-2 months. Check with your physician or doctor to determine what the right dosage is for you.
