The Cypionate ester of this drug makes its release moderately slow, and therefore requires injections to be less frequent than they would be if the user was administering a drug with a faster-acting ester attached to it such as Testosterone Propionate. Athletes using this steroid (Testosterone Cypionate) often find that administering the drug twice per week (Monday/Friday, for example), is very sufficient for maintaining steady blood and hormonal level.
Testosterone Cypionate is one of the most common anabolic hormones that exists, and is also considered one of the most basic as well. Due to this, bodybuilders and athletes alike often consider it the base steroid to most all cycles. Testosterone Cypionate is both anabolic and androgenic in nature. Users of this steroid will notice a dramatic gain in muscle size and strength, as well as an overall sense of well-being with an increase in libido.
Testosterone Cypionate aromatizes very easily and therefore estrogen build-up and side effects can become an issue for users sensitive to these problems, or those choosing to use a high dose of this compound. Therefore, when using Testosterone Cypionate, bodybuilders often choose in incorporate an anti-estrogen such as Nolvadex, Proviron, or Arimidex to help keep estrogen-related side effects to a minimum. Extremely sensitive users, or users indulging in high(er) doses might find that stronger anti-estrogens such as Letrozole or Aromasin are more suitable. Androgenic side effects such as oily skin are also possible while taking Testosterone Cypionate
