Testosterone Cypionate

Functions and Traits

Testosterone Cypionate induces changes in shape, size and can also change the appearance and the number of muscle fibers. Androgens like testosterone can protect your hard earned muscle from the catabolic (muscle wasting) glucocorticoid hormones, in­ turn inhibiting the related adverse reactions.

In addition, Testosterone Cypionate has the ability to increase red blood cell production and a higher red blood cell count will improve endurance through increased oxygenation in the blood. More red blood cells can also improve recovery from strenuous physical activity.

Testosterone Cypionate has the ability to increase red blood cell production and a higher red blood cell count will improve endurance through increased oxygenation in the blood. More red blood cells can also improve recovery from strenuous physical activity. Even so, Testosterones anabolic/androgenic effects are dose dependent; the higher the dose the higher the muscle building effect.

Women receiving testosterone may develop male characteristics, which could be irreversible if treatment is continued. Call your doctor at once if you notice any of these signs of excess testosterone:

  • acne
  • changes in menstrual periods
  • male-pattern hair growth (such as on the chin or chest)
  • hoarse or deepened voice
  • enlarged clitoris

Common testosterone side effects (in men or women) may include:

  • breast swelling
  • headache, anxiety
  • increased facial or body hair growth, male-pattern baldness
  • increased or decreased interest in sex

Ask your doctor if this treatment is right for you before subjecting yourself to treatment.

Dosage and Administration

The typical dose for those who are using Cypionate to counteract the lowering of testosterone due to the use of other steroids is normally 200 mg. If it is being used for direct performance purposes, most will find 400 mg to 600 mg per week will be effective, but it is important to note that higher doses will greatly increase the risk.

Testosterone Cypionate is only available in an injectable form and is regularly used to treat conditions such a slow testosterone. More than twenty million men in the U.S. alone suffer from some form of low testosterone, and such a condition can severely diminish quality of life.
By splitting the injections up into smaller more frequent injections, you are introducing smaller amounts of the hormone for your body to deal with all at once. As for the actual performance doses, the minimum dosage is of 200 mg per week.

It should be noted; when it comes to performance enhancement, Testosterone Cypionate for women is not recommended.
