Testosterone Propionate is an oil-based injectable steroid which is faster than other testosterone esters such as Cypionate and Enanthate. This steroid is highly anabolic and androgenic in nature. It is somehow similar to cypionate; the difference lies in the duration for which it stays active in the body, where Propionate’s active life is shorter. Testosterone Propionate stays active in the body for about five days. It is recommended to inject it every three days whereas other testosterones are usually taken on a weekly basis.
The drug is quite efficient for gaining muscle mass. This is one of the anabolic steroids which are still produced in the U.S. The dosage is usually in the range of 200-400 mg. It is less harmful to the liver and is available in the price of $50-150 per 10 ccs. It can be stacked with many other steroids, same as testosterone cypionate, for example, to achieve the required results.
This steroid produces softer androgenic side effects as compared to other testosterone because of the fact that blood levels are not built up to a greater extent after the consumption of the drug. It results in lesser gyno problems and lesser water retention. However, when compared to others it is quite common to experience pain when you inject testosterone Propionate. The possible side effects include occasional swelling, eminent pain after the dosage, water retention, and gynecomastia. The swelling and painful injections are the additional side effects associated with propionate whereas the other side effects are the same as in the case of other testosterones.
