Testosterone propionate or Test Prop is the shortest-estered form of testosterone found in the market. It was released in the early 1930s by the European company Schering. This ester provide a short half-life approximately about two days, thereby delivering fast and rapid physiological response.
Testosterone propionate has many uses in the medical field, such as solving problems with decreased libido in men and treating certain types of breast cancer. However it is used nowadays in by many athletes and bodybuilders for the purpose of physique and performance enhancement and gain strength. High levels of testosterone well increase protein synthesis in cells and increase nitrogen retention into muscles tissue; the more nitrogen in muscles, the more nitrogen it can hold thus promoting muscle growth and increasing strength. It also can increase IGF-1(insulin growth like factor-1) output from the liver, such peptide is highly depended on HGH (human growth hormone) leading to an increase in its activity and increasing recovery rate not only for muscles but for every cells in the body.
The disadvantage of this form of testosterone is that it should be injected every day regardless of the dose high or low, other than that, it serves as a great anabolic steroid and suitable for both bulking and cutting cycles. a dose of 50mg per day will provide with notable enhancement in performance. some may consume 100mg every other day to decrease the amount if injections per week. some find them self comfortable with a much higher doses of 200mg every other day. However, you should always remember one simple rule, the higher the dose, the higher the possibilities for side effects to occur.
Although testosterone propionate has a short half-life and exits the body in a short period of time, misusage or abusing such anabolic steroid may lead to serious side effects.
Here is a list of some of the side effects, and how to control and manage them if possible:
Estrogenic side effects such as gynecomastia and water retention are possible since this anabolic steroid can convert to estrogen through the interaction with Aromatase enzyme. Adding an SERM such as Temoxifen or an Aromatase inhibitor like Anastrozole will reduce and help to control such side effects.
Androgenic adverse effects include acne, body hair growth and boldness. Using 5-alpha reductase inhibitor such as Finasteride will reduce the synthetic hormone’s side effects.
Low levels of natural testosterone could be found after the discontinuation of finishing the use of testosterone blend. A PCT is highly recommended including Clomid and HCG will speed up the recovery and the production of testosterone.
