Testosterone propionate is a commonly used testosterone for injection. The added propionate will slow down the rate of testosterone release from the injection site, but only for a few days. Therefore, testosterone propionate has a relatively faster effect than other testosterone esters such as enanthate, cypionate or enanthate, and requires more frequent injections. Most people think that testosterone propionate is an older and rougher testosterone for injection, which is eliminated by the later developed faster-acting and more comfortable esters. As an injection of testosterone, it can take effect quickly and quickly increase muscle size and strength.
Testosterone propionate was first born in 1935. In a series of experiments, propionate was used to increase the therapeutic use of testosterone by slowing the release of testosterone into the serum. Two years later, Schering, Germany, will launch the first testosterone propionate product called Testoviron®. Testosterone propionate was also the first commercially available injectable testosterone ester on the prescription drug market in the United States, and before 1960 was still the main form of injectable testosterone-like products in the world. For example, in the early 1950s, when steroids were first tested by a small number of American athletes, the only anabolic/androgenic steroids readily available on the market were methyltestosterone, testosterone propionate and aqueous testosterone (testosterone suspension) . Interestingly, during this period, testosterone propionate was also used in oral (oral) preparations, but they disappeared from the US market in the 1980s.
The early prescription guidelines for testosterone propionate have many therapeutic uses. It is mainly used in cases of male androgen insufficiency, and problems that usually revolve around low testosterone levels, such as decreased libido and impotence in adults, and cryptorchidism in adolescents and young adults. Testosterone propionate has also been used to treat female menopause, menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding), menstrual tension, chronic cystic mastitis (fibrocystic breast), endometriosis and hyperlactation, etc. Covers various situations in which the male hormone testosterone is used. For female patients. Over the years, these broad guidelines were narrowed by the US Food and Drug Administration, but by the 1980s, testosterone propionate was mainly used only in male patients.
And is still a very common form of testosterone in the global market. However, it must be emphasized that its ability to remain on the market is more of a historical product than a unique application. Testosterone propionate is the first acceptable testosterone ester and therefore has decades of history as a useful therapeutic agent. Many companies have sold it for decades and will continue to do so as long as it still needs it. But other (more modern) forms of testosterone such as testosterone enanthate and testosterone citrate are more popular today because they act much slower and do not require frequent injections.
Bodybuilders generally consider testosterone propionate to be the mildest testosterone ester and usually schedule it in the off-season preparation cycle. Some people even say that propionate is very effective in improving muscle stiffness, while giving users less water and fat retention, instead of testosterone like enanthate and cypionate. However, in reality, these advantages cannot withstand rigorous scrutiny. In fact, propionate is removed before the testosterone it carries is active in the body, and ultimately has little effect other than slowing down the release of steroids. It all boils down to how much testosterone each specific esterified compound makes in your blood. Otherwise, there is no real functional difference between them.
