Testosterone Cypionate is a long-acting form of testosterone attached to the cypionate ester, it is a popular steroid that bodybuilders in the UK buy online. Its 8-carbon ester length means that it’s primarily stored in fatty tissues after IM injections and released at a constant rate over time. The release from its ester produces peak levels in the blood within one to two days of being injected. Release then slows until it becomes stable at about 12 days until about 3 weeks after injection.
Common doses start at 250 mg on the low end to the more common dose of 500 mg a week for a ten-week cycle. More advanced bodybuilders, such as professionals, may use doses up to 1000 mg a week or more. However, side effects and aromatization also increase with greater doses. Long-acting esters of Testosterone are great choices for putting on muscle but often present challenges when it comes to their use. Drugs for controlling estrogen such as Proviron and Nolvadex are excellent choices for the control of side effects during and after a cycle of Cypionate. In addition, Clomid and HCG are great when used in addition to Nolvadex for returning levels of endogenous testosterone to normal. Due to the powerful nature of this product, side effects tend to be especially pronounced.
Aromatization tends to occur heavily with testosterone cypionate, so estrogenic side effects such as fat gain, water retention, and gynecomastia are all possible when using Cypionate. Nolvadex may be used in doses starting at 20 mg per day for the control of such side effects when they occur. Proviron is often a better choice than Arimidex for use with testosterone. Other common side effects when using Cypionate are acne, aggression, high blood pressure, high libido, nausea, and chills.
