Testosterone propionate is an anabolic-androgenic steroid based on testosterone. In medicine, it is used for treating low production of testicular androgens, by diseases, which need production of proteins and by women for treating osteoporosis after menopause and breast cancer.
It is a very popular product in the area of bodybuilding thanks to its fast mechanism of action. According to reports of users with experience with the product, the results come very quickly. Amongst them, there are gain on strength, training energy, increased appetite and growth of muscle mass. Testosterone propionate causes retention of proteins in muscle fibres. It has the best ability to burn fats amongst all the steroids based on testosterone. For this reason, it can be used during cutting cycles before competitions, as well.
On the other hand, it is very quickly eliminated from the body and has to be used often in relatively high doses. For this reason, it has strong influence on the organism.
Testosterone propionate side effects
The side effects of the use of testosterone propionate are considerably lower than those of testosterone cypionate or testosterone enanthate, however, they can be obvious. Testosterone propionate has a strong tendency to aromatize into estrogen, thus the danger of Gynecomastia, excessive water retention or saving of fats in the area of hips can be a concern. For this reason, it is recommended to use products with antiestrogenic effects, like clomiphene citrate or mesterolone, simultaneously with testosterone propionate.
Testosterone propionate reduces the natural production of testosterone, as well. At the end of the steroid cycle, it is recommended to use HCG, which gets the production back on its normal level.
Because of the strong androgenic effects, there are also side effects like acne, increased aggression, hypertension or high level of cholesterol.
Testosterone propionate dosage
The standard dose for men is in the range of 500 – 1000 mg in one week. Higher amounts have no results and lead to deepening the side effects. Beginners with anabolic-androgenic steroids should not use more than 500 mg in one week. To maximize the effects, testosterone propionate should be used every day. It is highly recommended to join its use with the above mentioned products. Women should avoid using testosterone propionate because of its strong androgenic effects and a high risk of Gynecomastia.
