testosterone propionate

Testosterone Propionate is similar to enanthate, cypionate, and Sustanon. However, compared to enanthate or cypionate, propionate shorter ether chain, so the active ingredient rapidly enters the bloodstream. As a result, the drug has a shorter duration on the body.To prevent a decrease in the blood steroid level to inefficient, require more frequent (daily) injections.

 To obtain good results it is necessary to do injections at least every other day. Best results are given daily injections. Peak propionate activity appears 24-36 hours after injection, and then the activity decreases. Features of the drug is the need for frequent injections and reduce the attractiveness of this steroid for beginners “chemists” and for those who do not like intramuscular injection.

 For the first course better to use odnoefirnye testosterone preparations, such as enanthate or cypionate. Both drugs have a long-acting, the injections are carried out less frequently, and stable blood levels of the drug lasts longer. Therefore, the effect of the use of these steroids will be optimal. Enanthate injection should be carried out twice a week, cypionate – once a week. Both preparations give similar results, therefore, for any of the first course are better suitable than propionate. The advantages that gives propionate, are not worth the effort, which requires its use.

 Introduction propionate relatively painful, especially when the required frequency of injections. At the injection site often appears boring, and many complain that the pain is felt in a long time. With this in mind, it should be administered propionate in different places. That is why the propionate is not the best preparation for those who are the first to use steroids.

 However, enanthate and cypionate, too, have their own characteristics. So before you start to use steroids, it is necessary to review all the possible consequences. When using propionate is recommended to always have ready additional drugs Tamoxifen, Proviron, in case there will be symptoms of gynecomastia (or even possible to take these drugs for a course to prevent this side effect). 

Testosterone propionate retains its activity in the body for a short time, 2 – 3 days. He has a short half-life, and he already has an active effect one day after injection. Propionate is one of the four testosterone esters that make up the mixture of Sustanon. To take full advantage, which allows the simultaneous use of all the members of the mixture of esters, for propionate and phenylpropionate injection Sustanon should be frequent.

 Propionate has the same qualities as other testosterones, moreover, it quickly begins to act. Compared with other steroids ( such as testosterone enanthate and testosterone cypionate ) propionate less water retention in the body and, consequently, contributes to less weight gain during the course.



As mentioned above, in order to maximize the effect of propionate should be entered daily, so it is a very fast-acting ester. You can make injection and the day after. But less than two days on the third propionate is administered. Big breaks between injections do not allow you to use all the advantages of this drug to slow the process of increasing the size and strength of muscles. If you would not often better to use to carry out the injection of long-acting testosterone odnoefirnym such as cypionate or enanthate. And, as already mentioned, propionate is not the most suitable steroid for the first course, as beginners often does not involve the need for injections.   


Side effects

When using propionate possible side effects such as acne, fluid retention, high blood pressure, aromatization, the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone and reduced function of its own production of testosterone by the body. Propionate perfumes the body, so it is desirable to avoid complications during the course of further use of drugs such as Nolvadex or Clomid. Based on experience, you should always be reserved auxiliary preparations before beginning any course.


Propionate preparation is fast, so basically it is administered for 50 – 100 mg daily or every other day. As already mentioned, the introduction of the drug through the large intervals its effectiveness is reduced. Since the injection site may be painful for a long time, it is recommended to change the place of administration. When using propionate to muscle recruitment during the first 4 – 6 weeks it is combined with other steroids such as Deca, Boldenone, strombafort, methane or Anadrol. This helps to dramatically increase muscle mass and strength.
