Esters found in TRT Drug Medicines

Cypionate Testosterone

Cypionate: This ester has a half-life of 8 to 10 days resulting in steady metabolism of the steroid testosterone hormone once injected. Providers commonly recommend injecting cypionate once to twice per week to maintain stable hormone levels. 100mg of Testosterone Cypionate yields about 70mg of actual testosterone, the remaining 30mg is ester solution. Starting cypionate doses raise a patient’s testosterone levels to within optimal ranges of 600ng to 1100ng using 100mg-250mg IM Cypionate every 8 to 14 days.

Enanthate Testosterone

Enanthate: This esterized testosterone is metabolized by the body over 3 to 5 days and can remain in the body for up to 2 weeks after injection. 100mg of Testosterone Enanthate yields about 75mg of actual testosterone, the remaining 25mg is ester solution. Injections are administered every 3 to 5 days. Starting enanthate doses raise a patient’s testosterone levels to within optimal ranges of 600ng/dL to 1100ng/dL using 100mg-250mg IM Enanthate every 3 to 5 days.

Propionate Testosterone

Propionate: This is a faster acting ester which can peak in the blood within hours and be fully metabolized over 2 to 3 days. Propionate Injections such as Testoviron® are commonly administered every other day, or every 2 days. Since propionate steroid injections metabolizes so rapidly, it needs to be administered frequently. Frequent administration ensures stable androgen blood levels and optimizes testosterone levels very quickly. 100mg of Testosterone Propionate yields a bout 90mg of testosterone with the remaining 10mg being ester solution.

Undecanoate Testosterone

Undecanoate: This ester has a half-life of over 10 days resulting in the steady metabolism of steroid testosterone hormone once injected. Providers commonly recommend injecting Undecanoate such as Aveed® once in a large dose of 750mg and then again after a month. Thereafter an undecanoate injections is made every 3 months or so to maintain stable androgen hormone levels.

Suspension Testosterone

Aqueous Testosterone Suspension: Has no Ester and requires frequent or daily IM injections since it remains in the body only for a few hours. This esterized testosterone is not usually prescribed for TRT.

Testosterone Injections

Testosterone Injections are the most effective way to boost Low Testosterone Levels. Testosterone Creams, Gels & Patches delivering transdermal androgen steroid hormones are also available.  

Testosterone Injections are the most widely practiced and cost-effective means of testosterone therapy because they have numerous advantages over testosterone creams, testosterone gels and testosterone dermal patches. Low T injections are beneficial for persons suffering from low testosterone symptoms and health problems caused by testosterone deficiency. If you think you may want to try testosterone gel or cream like Androgel® or Testim®, or testosterone patches like Androderm® or Testoderm®, these low T treatments are also available.

At Optimal Health MD you can obtain many types of Testosterone Therapy for your testosterone deficiency. You and our physicians will discuss which treatment method is best for you. We offer testosterone injections that are safe and effective, and importantly – produce immediate results. Testosterone injections are intramuscular shots, in which the hormone is injected directly into the blood stream. Testosterone shots or injections can help elevate your testosterone levels almost immediately so you can start enjoying the benefits of increased testosterone right away.

Testosterone Gels & Creams

We also provide testosterone gels and topical testosterone creams  which are a fairly new form of male hormone treatment used to raise levels of testosterone levels in men suffering from low testosterone levels. Testosterone gels provide balanced testosterone levels to the body via skin. Due to its ease in use and minimal skin irritation, testosterone gel is now the main option for men undergoing testosterone therapy who prefer a topical solution over a hormone shot. Some men find that testosterone gels don’t provide enough of a testosterone boost, are concerned about transfer to a family member or lover, or find that gels and creams don’t absorb well into their skin. Therefore, they may request a different method of testosterone replacement therapy.

If you decide to try a topical Testosterone Medication, you can buy Testosterone Androgel®  which is one of the better ways to treat testosterone problems. Androgel® can be an effective way to increase testosterone levels. Androgel Testosterone is a clear, colorless and hydro alcoholic gel containing 1% testosterone. Androgel provides continuous transdermal delivery of testosterone for 24 hours following a single application to intact, clean, dry skin of the shoulders, upper arms and/or abdomen.
