Terry's asking:

What is Testosterone propionate?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Testosterone propionate is a fast-acting, short-ester, oil based injectable testosterone compound that is commonly prescribed for the treatment of hypogonadism. Hypogonadism is a condition in which the body doesn’t produce enough testosterone. So, along with testosterone cypionate and testosterone enanthate, the propionate ester can be of use in testosterone replacement therapy too.

Mark's asking:

How long does it take for Testosterone propionate to start working or kick in?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

The Propionate ester of this drug work very fast. This is different then the likes of testosterone enanthate and cypionate. Testosterone propionate users see results in as little as just 2 weeks. Keep in mind though that the propionate ester requires much more frequent injections. This is to make sure blood concentrations remain stable.

Robert's asking:

How much does Testosterone propionate cost?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Testosterone Propionate is the cheaper of all the testosterone esters per 10ml bottle and 1ml ampoules. It is available in both generic and brand name versions. The average cost of this steroid is between $15 - $25 per 10ml bottle. Keep in mind though that because of the rate of injection that the user has to implement, which is injections every day or every other day, this will make the cost of it rise. That being said, the cost will vary depending on the individual goals and the amount injected along with the duration of the cycle.

Gregory's asking:

Does Testosterone propionate burn fat?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

This all depends on what you are using it for. Testosterone in any of its esters promotes muscle growth and at the same time suppresses fat gain. If an individual is using testosterone propionate for TRT treatment due to the fact he is testosterone deficient than this individual tends to gain fat more easily. Bodybuilders and athletes that have a lot of muscle mass and stick to a clean, strict diet and training program will gain solid muscle. This is due to the fact that muscles burn far more calories than fat tissue. But of all testosterone esters, propionate will definitely give the individual a harder, more defined look with less water retention than any other ester.

Frank's asking:

I’ve used Testosterone propionate in the past and noticed pain at the injection site. Is this common and is there anything I could to avoid painful injections in the future?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

With injections of Testosterone propionate, it is common to experience pain at the injection site. There are a number of reasons users get pain after injecting. Testosterone propionate or for that matter any short ester being propionate or acetate users experience pain because the crystals are harder and when oil/solvents are absorbed by the body some crystals are left behind. The short esters have crystals with higher melting points. Pain is also caused by purchasing low-grade gear from an unreputable source or lab. Tip: Pain in the first five to fifteen hours is usually caused by heavy solvents (meaning more alcohol used to break it down). Pain after the first day into the second day is caused by crystallization. A good way to avoid painful injections of propionate is to inject less milligrams. For example, let’s say your taking 100mg of propionate EOD, the injection will hurt more if the 100mg is given in one injection. It’s better to take break it into two injections at 50mg each. Also, mix it with another oil-based gear to thin out the propionate. This should help lessen the pain. Either way, if you are going to run this, getting used to the pain is your best option.

Roberto's asking:

What dosage strength do Testosterone propionate injections come in?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Testosterone propionate injections come in 10ml bottles at 100mg/ml. There are also crack top ampoules of testosterone propionate that are 100mg/ml. Meaning one single crack top ampoule contains 1ml of propionate at 100mg. You’ll also find out there in the market or someone’s basement a 10ml bottle that has 200mg/ml. Stay away from this for two reasons. One, if you think propionate hurts at the normal mg/ml, you won’t be able to bear this. And two, you don’t know what you’re getting because there is no reputable place that makes propionate this high.

Derek's asking:

For TRT treatment what would be the way to implement Testosterone propionate?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Nick's asking:

What other AAS will work well in combination with Testosterone propionate?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Honestly, all of them. We’ll give you a quick couple of cycles though, one for cutting and one for building mass. If your goal is to cut, testosterone propionate stacked with oral Winstrol is a good choice. After the first four weeks drop the Winstrol and add in Masteron. Continue this for six more weeks. The total cycle length is ten weeks. If you are looking to build mass, testosterone propionate stacked with trenbolone enanthate and anadrol is worth checking out. Run this cycle for a total of eight weeks. After the fourth week drop the anadrol. As an option you can switch to another oral steroid such as anavar or turinabol. When we talk about building mass, we mean clean solid muscle gains without the water bloat.

Shon's asking:

Which Testosterone ester is the best for women to take?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Testosterone propionate should be the choice for any woman who chooses to use testosterone. Propionate is in and out of the system quickly so if any unwanted side effects are seen or felt, all the woman needs to do is stop using propionate and it will be cleared from her system fast.

Carlos's asking:

How often does one need to inject Test- Prop in order to get the most from it?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

We recommend injecting the Propionate ester every other day (eod) due to the ester having short half-life.

Michael's asking:

Can testosterone propionate be used alone for muscle building purposes?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Yes. Alone in short cycles Propionate is used. Most times though its run along with another ester of testosterone or entirely different compounds.

Lany's asking:

If a female were to take testosterone, which would be best to take? I was already thinking test-prop. Can you give your opinion on this please?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Yes, we can. Your thinking that the propionate ester of Testosterone would be best for a woman to use, is correct. Female dosage is 25mg to 50mg every 5 – 7 days. Most females in bodybuilding prefer propionate due to the half-life since this results in fast clearance from the body in a matter of just days. Less side-effects to be had in end result.

Yugen's asking:

Why after injecting test prop does it hurt? At times I get swelling and redness, feeling sick when its worst. Can I get some help?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Propionate is less soluble and has more alcohol content to break up the crystals. Harder the crystals the more pain seems to be the case. Try stretching it with another compound or taking less of a dose.

Bart's asking:

How do I kickstart Test cypionate by using propionate?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

We’ll break it down:
• Propionate – 1st thru 4th week / 100mg eod
• Cypionate – 1st thru 12th week / 200mg twice per week – Mondays & Thursday Doing this will kickstart the cycle because of the fast acting ester.

Cole's asking:

Need opinion on my quick six week cutting cycle. What do you think?
• 100mg test – prop / eod
• 100mg masteron / eod
• 50mg winstrol tabs / ed
Can I mix the propionate and masteron in same injection?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

We think your cycle is awesome, as long as bodyfat is 10% or lower. Don’t waste the Masteron if your not there yet. Yes, same injection is fine. Stretching the propionate is good idea that ends up helping with injection pain. Remember, get to 10% before adding masteron.

Terance's asking:

I’m 6’0, 180lbs. and want to add some mass to my frame. Never have I used anything before except creatine. Will you let me know if testosterone propionate is a good choice for me? I want to get it cause of how fast leaves the body.

..................................................................................................

Reply:

The propionate ester of Testosterone is not recommended for a first cycle. Propionate’s for the more advanced person. We recommend Sustanon-250 as a good injectable for first cycles.

Hugo's asking:

Why do people say to use propionate at every other day intervals if it has a half life of 4.5 days? Would it be right taking it every fourth day?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

For bodybuilding or fitness purposes the best method of taking this compound is eod. This method keeps levels from jumping. If taking Propionate at intervals of 4 days the user will have highs and lows, making them feel, all over the place really.

John's asking:

Is testosterone propionate like testosterone suspension?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

No, it isn’t. Testosterone Suspension is water based and raw without ester, and half-life of only 2 – 4 hours. Only used by the very advanced circles to bust through a plateau.
