Side Effects From Using Injectable Testosterone 0 (0)

Are there any side effects from using injectable Testosterone?

As with any medication, the possibility of side effects does exist from the administration of injectable testosterone. Keep in mind that AAI Rejuvenation Clinic’s contracted, USA based pharmacies only use bio-identical Testosterone. Bio-identical meaning, it’s the same as your body produces. Most medications that your primary care physician would prescribe are synthetic and subject to an increased possibility of side effects emerging. Your body is organic so, most of your medication should be organic. If not, you are expecting your body to accept and positively deal with the synthetic material. This popular misconception is where most of the issues emerge.

Bare in mind that properly administered testosterone inadequate dosages pertinent to the individual patient’s file characteristics, which would accompany preventive, supplemental nutraceuticals, can be an invaluable positive tool in optimizing a person’s life. Patients that participate in physician-supervised protocols mostly have successful, beneficial experiences with little to no side effects from therapy.

Possible Side Effects from injectable Testosterone therapy may be:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Skin color changes
  • Increased/Decreased sexual interest
  • Oily skin
  • Hair loss
  • Breast swelling in men
  • Numbness or tingly feeling
  • Acne
  • Pain, swelling, and redness at the injection site may also occur.

The dosage for injectable Testosterone will vary depending on the sex, age, and diagnosis of the participating patient. Dosage is adjusted according to the patient’s response. Injectable testosterone may interact with blood thinners, insulin or oral diabetes medication, or steroids. Tell your doctor all medications you use.

Injectable testosterone must not be used during pregnancy. It may harm a fetus. Consult your doctor to discuss birth control. Breast-feeding while using this drug is not recommended.

Seek immediate emergency medical help if you experience some or any of the following signs of an allergic reaction: 

  • Hives
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:

  • Swelling
  • Rapid weight gain
  • Increased or ongoing erection of the penis
  • Bone pain
  • Increased thirst
  • Memory problems
  • Restless feeling
  • Confusion
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Increased urination
  • Weakness
  • Muscle twitching; or
  • Nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, loss of appetite, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Women administering any form of testosterone must be aware that the potentiality of developing male characteristics such as facial hair, deepening of the voice and changes in the skin may occur, which could be irreversible if testosterone treatment is continued.

If you are a female, call your doctor right away if you notice any of these signs:

  • Acne
  • Changes in your menstrual periods
  • Male-pattern hair growth (such as on the chin or chest);
  • Male pattern baldness
  • Enlarged clitoris
  • Increase or decrease in sex drive.

Less serious side effects may include:

  • Breast swelling in men
  • Headache
  • Anxiety
  • Depressed mood
  • Numbness or tingly feeling
  • Pain or swelling where the medicine was injected.

Testosterone Boosters Supplements 0 (0)

Testosterone Boosters  Supplements

If you’re thinking about taking testosterone boosters Supplements, whether it’s to help you add more muscle mass, gain energy throughout the day, or to increase your libido, there are many positive benefits to taking these supplements. There are also a few potential side effects that you should be aware of before embarking on any such journey.

  • The most commonly reported physical side effect is an outbreak of acne. Men report that the most common form of acne that they have to deal with are outbreaks along their backs.
  • A side effect that is important to consider when you’re looking to build muscle is that testosterone boosters Supplements are very effective in adding muscle, but this doesn’t increase the strength of the tendons and ligaments that connect the muscle to bone. What results is myalgia or an abnormal growth of the muscle? It can also lead to tearing of the ligaments and the muscles themselves, so it’s important to make sure that your workout regimen is balanced in such a way as to promote positive and healthy muscle growth.
  • There have been reports throughout Europe on the long-term health effects of testosterone boosters Supplements and some of these studies have indicated that the kidneys can be damaged by prolonged use of these supplements. It’s advisable to give your body a break from these supplements every so often.
  • Testosterone has been linked to increased aggressive tendencies among men with high levels of the hormone in their system. Using a testosterone booster has the potential to exacerbate these tendencies, especially if they already exist within your system.
  • Occasional headaches have been reported by individuals using testosterone boosters. These headaches tend to be mild, rather than a migraine, and they are only reported as being a slight increase in the number of headaches that they normally get.
  • Anemia or a deficiency of iron in the blood is another possible side effect. This can lead to feeling colder and possibly being more susceptible to colds or infections.

Psychological Side Effects

  • There are a few potential psychological side effects associated with testosterone boosters that should be noted as well.
  • Mood swings are the most commonly reported psychological side effect of testosterone boosters. These supplements, as they increase the level of testosterone in the system, can cause an individual to become more hostile and aggressive, but usually only if that person’s temperament is already triggered for those behaviors.
  • Depression has sometimes been reported while using testosterone boosters. The underlying cause of depression is unknown, so there is no direct correlation between testosterone boosters and depression.
  • Anxiety can potentially be found among individuals taking testosterone boosting supplements.

Conclusion

While there are a number of potential side effects associated with testosterone boosters, there isn’t enough research to support or deny any of these possible effects being directly linked to the supplements.

There are numerous individuals, both men, and women, across the world who have taken these supplements for years and have reported little or no side effects.

However, as with any vitamin or another supplement that you take, if you experience any side effects, it’s important to consult a physician to determine whether it might be related to the supplements themselves.

Testosterone Gel Treat Symptoms of Androgen Deficiency 0 (0)

Testosterone Gel and Androgen Deficiency

Testosterone gel is used to treat symptoms of androgen deficiency (AD) syndromes. AD can cause low testosterone in men, which may lead to characteristic decreases in energy, metabolism, and sex drive. Like other forms of testosterone therapy, testosterone gel can cause side effects in some men.

What makes the gel unique is that its side effects can spread to others through contact with the medication. Understanding the risks can help protect you and your loved ones from testosterone gel dangers.

AD syndromes are diagnosed through a combination of medical history and physical examinations. Your doctor also can determine low testosterone levels associated with AD through a blood test. According to the Hormone Health Network, a normal testosterone level is between 300 and 1,000 ng/dL. Consistently lower levels can indicate a problem with the body’s natural ability to produce testosterone.

Testosterone gel is just one of the various types of medications prescribed for such cases. The gel is designed for men who prefer the product over patches and injections. Like the patches, testosterone gel is applied topically daily.

Any time you medically increase hormone levels, there’s a risk for side effects. Specifically, testosterone gel may cause:

  • headaches
  • dry skin or acne
  • hot flashes
  • insomnia (which may be caused by hot flashes at night)
  • anxiety or depression
  • muscle pain and weakness
  • further, decrease in libido
  • reduced sperm count

While many of these symptoms aren’t severe, they can become bothersome. It’s important to tell your doctor about any side effects if they persist for more than a few days.

Other side effects of testosterone gel in men can be more serious. These may include:

  • breast pain or enlargement
  • difficulty or frequently urinating
  • prolonged or frequent erections
  • yellowing of the eyes and skin (jaundice)

Notify your doctor immediately if any of these side effects occur. Allergic reactions to testosterone therapy can increase your risk for similar reactions to testosterone gel. Seek medical help if you experience breathing difficulties or swelling in any part of the body

Despite the benefits of testosterone gel, such medications aren’t a good fit for all men with AD. Testosterone gel doesn’t pose the same risks to liver damage as other forms of testosterone do. However, it still may increase your risk for prostate cancer.

For this reason, your doctor will assess your risks for prostate cancer, which may include an examination of the prostate and a blood test that measures prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels.

Other factors that may prevent you from being a good candidate for the gel include:

  • sleep apnea
  • heart disease
  • breast cancer
  • high levels of red blood cells

While testosterone gel is designed for men, the effects can extend to women. Although the risk is low side effects may occur when women either touch the product directly or through clothing.

Signs of contact include increased acne and unusual hair growth. If you’re a woman who lives with someone using testosterone gel, it’s imperative that you avoid contact with the product entirely.

Children are the most susceptible to the risks associated with testosterone gel because their bodies are still developing. Particular care in using the medication is strongly encouraged if you ever have any contact with children—even those who don’t live with you.

Testosterone gel can cause numerous problems in children including:

  • anxiety and aggression
  • early puberty
  • increased sex drive
  • frequent erections in males
  • enlarged clitoris in females
  • stunted growth

Prevent testosterone gel transfers to others. Always apply the gel before getting dressed, and make sure it’s completely dry to avoid transfer to clothing. Once applied, wash your hands thoroughly, and clean the application area if you expect any skin-to-skin contact. If you suspect accidental product contact with a woman or child, make sure they wash their skin right away and call a doctor.

Dangers of testosterone gel exposure to women and children are real and should be taken seriously. As a user of the medicine, it’s also important to protect yourself.

Report any unusual side effects to your doctor right away. Never share your medication with anyone, and don’t use testosterone gel that isn’t prescribed to you.

This drug is intended for AD syndromes and is not an anti-aging cure that some unrepeatable companies make out such products to be.

 

testosterone-injections

 

Testosterone Injections is the most common treatment for men going through andropause. This therapy may provide help and relief from the symptoms and help improve the quality of life in many cases, also lifestyle changes such as increased exercise, stress reduction, and proper nutrition also help.

Testosterone therapy is available in different forms, ask your doctor he will help determine which treatment is best for you.

TESTOSTERONE INJECTIONS: This treatment involves doses of bioidentical (Testosterone Cypionate, Testosterone Enanthate, and Testosterone Propionate).

TESTOSTERONE PATCHES: People who wear a piece containing testosterone receive the hormone through the skin. The patches allow a slow, steady release of testosterone into the bloodstream.

TESTOSTERONE GEL: This treatment is also applied directly to the skin, usually on the arms. Because the gel may transfer to other individuals through skin contact, a person must take care to wash the gel from the hands after each application.

TESTOSTERONE CAPSULES: This is yet another option for testosterone replacement. Men with liver disease, poor liver function, severe heart or kidney disease, or too much calcium in their blood should avoid testosterone capsules.

Follow-up visits with your doctor will be necessary after the initial treatment begins. At follow-up visits, your doctor will check your response to the treatment and make adjustments, if necessary.

NANDROLONE DECANOATE INJECTION 0 (0)

NANDROLONE DECANOATE INJECTION

NANDROLONE DECANOATE General Information

Nandrolone decanoate is a parenteral anabolic steroid. It is primarily used to treat anemia, chronic renal failure, osteoporosis, and AIDS-associated wasting syndrome. This agent is known to increase hemoglobin and red cell mass. With the development of recombinant human erythropoietin, nandrolone decanoate use in anemia associated with chronic renal failure has declined. It has also been the subject of drug misuse and abuse, often producing adverse effects such as changes in libido, hepatotoxicity, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, and antisocial behavior. Some of the masculinizing effects in women can be irreversible. Nandrolone decanoate was approved by the FDA in 1983 and became a controlled substance in 1991.

Mechanism of Action

Nandrolone decanoate shares the actions of endogenous androgens such as testosterone. Exogenous androgens such as nandrolone decanoate promote protein anabolism and stimulate appetite which results in a reversal of catabolic processes and negative nitrogen balance. Increases in lean body mass in patients with cachexia (e.g., malnourished dialysis patients) and decreased bone resorption and increased bone density in patients with osteoporosis are often noted. Blood glucose, erythrocyte production, and the balance of calcium are also affected by androgens. Increased erythrocyte production is apparently due to enhanced production of an erythropoietic stimulating factor. Patients with anemia associated with renal disease will have increases in red blood cell volume and hemoglobin after receiving nandrolone decanoate.

Since nandrolone decanoate has actions similar to endogenous androgens, administration of nandrolone decanoate has the possibility of causing serious disturbances of growth and sexual development if given to young children and causing unwanted adverse effects in women. Exogenous androgens suppress gonadotropin-releasing hormone, thereby reducing the gonadotropic function of the pituitary through a negative-feedback mechanism. This results in a reduction of endogenous testosterone, luteinizing hormone, and follicle-stimulating hormone. Exogenous androgens may also have a direct effect on the testes. Reversible increases in low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and decreases in high-density lipoproteins (HDL) also occur.

TESTOSTERONE ENANTHATE INJECTION 0 (0)

TESTOSTERONE ENANTHATE INJECTION

General Information

TESTOSTERONE ENANTHATE INJECTION was the first ever synthesized anabolic steroid. Testosterone enanthate is a slow-acting, long-ester, oil-based injectable testosterone compound that is commonly prescribed for the treatment of hypogonadism – low testosterone levels and various related symptoms in males.

Testosterone enanthate injection first appeared in the U.S. prescription drug market during the early 1950’s, as Delatestryl by Squibb.  It changed hands several times over the years, most notably to Mead Johnson, BTG, Savient, and in December 2005, Indevus.  Testosterone enanthates were most prominently featured in a hybrid blend with testosterone propionate under the brand Testoviron, a drug that has seen uninterrupted production by Schering AG of Germany for more than 50 years.

Testosterone is the primary androgen found in the body. Endogenous testosterone is synthesized by cells in the testis, ovary, and adrenal cortex. Therapeutically, testosterone is used in the management of hypogonadism, either congenital or acquired. Testosterone is also the most effective exogenous androgen for the palliative treatment of carcinoma of the breast in postmenopausal women. Testosterone was in use in 1938 and approved by the FDA in 1939. Anabolic steroids, derivatives of testosterone, have been used illicitly and are now controlled substances. Testosterone, like many anabolic steroids, was classified as a controlled substance in 1991. Testosterone therapy is administered parenterally in regular and delayed-release (depot) dosage forms. In September 1995, the FDA initially approved testosterone transdermal patches (Androderm); many transdermal forms and brands are now available including implants, gels, and topical solutions. A testosterone buccal system, Striant, was FDA approved in July 2003; the system is a mucoadhesive product that adheres to the buccal mucosa and provides a controlled and sustained release of testosterone. In May 2014, the FDA approved an intranasal gel formulation (Natesto). A transdermal patch (Intrinsa) for hormone replacement in women is under investigation; the daily dosages used in women are much lower than for products used in males. The FDA ruled in late 2004 that it would delay the approval of Intrinsa women’s testosterone patch and has required more data regarding safety, especially in relation to cardiovascular and breast health.

The Enanthate Ester: An ester is any of a class of organic compounds that react with water to produce alcohols and organic or inorganic acids.  Most esters are derived from carboxylic acids, and injectable testosterone is typically administered along with one or multiple esters.  The addition of a carbon chain (ester) attached to the testosterone molecule controls how soluble it will be once inside the bloodstream.  The smaller the carbon chain, the shorter the ester, and the more soluble the medication.  A small/short ester will have a shorter half life – a repeating cycle of a medication’s time and activity within the body.  The inverse is true of long carbon chains, like enanthate, which both act slowly upon the body and evacuates the body at a similar rate. Specifically, testosterone enanthate injection contains the carboxylic acid ester (enanthic acid), and a half-life is approximately 8-9 days; the longest half-life of all common ester based testosterones.  An uncommon testosterone such as Nebido (testosterone undecanoate) has a very long 3-month half-life.

Indications

Testosterone Enanthate injection are primarily used I men who do not make enough testosterone naturally (hypogonadism), as well as in specific adolescent cases to induce puberty in those with delayed puberty.

Mechanism of Action
Endogenous testosterone is responsible for sexual maturation at all stages of development throughout life. Synthetically, it is prepared from cholesterol. The function of androgens in male development begins in the fetus, is crucial during puberty, and continues to play an important role in the adult male. Women also secrete small amounts of testosterone from the ovaries. The secretion of androgens from the adrenal cortex is insufficient to maintain male sexuality.

Increased androgen plasma concentrations suppress gonadotropin-releasing hormone (reducing endogenous testosterone), luteinizing hormone, and follicle-stimulating hormone by a negative-feedback mechanism. Testosterone also affects the formation of erythropoietin, the balance of calcium, and blood glucose. Androgens have a high lipid solubility, enabling them to rapidly enter cells of target tissues. Within the cells, testosterone undergoes enzymatic conversion to 5-alpha-dihydro testosterone and forms a loosely bound complex with cytosolic receptors. Androgen action arises from the initiation of transcription and cellular changes in the nucleus brought about by this steroid-receptor complex.

Normally, endogenous androgens stimulate RNA polymerase, resulting in an increased protein production.These proteins are responsible for the normal male sexual development, including the growth and maturation of the prostate, seminal vesicle, penis, and scrotum. During puberty, androgens cause a sudden increase in growth and development of muscle, with redistribution of body fat. Changes also take place in the larynx and vocal cords, deepening the voice. Puberty is completed with beard development and growth of body hair. Fusion of the epiphyses and termination of growth is also governed by the androgens, as is the maintenance of spermatogenesis. When endogenous androgens are unavailable, use of exogenous androgens is necessary for normal male growth and development.

TESTOSTERONE PROPIONATE INJECTION 0 (0)

TESTOSTERONE PROPIONATE INJECTION

General Information

TESTOSTERONE PROPIONATE INJECTION was the first successfully synthesized anabolic steroid. Testosterone propionate is a fast-acting, short-ester, oil-based injectable testosterone compound that is commonly prescribed for the treatment of hypogonadism – low testosterone propionate injection levels and various related symptoms in males.

During a series of experiments in 1935, This testosterone propionate injection was first described in 1935 to increase synthetic testosterone’s therapeutic usefulness by slowing its release into the bloodstream.  It was released for clinical use two years later by Schering AG in Germany, featured in a hybrid blend with testosterone enanthate under the brand name Testoviron.  This was also the first commercially available version on the U.S. prescription drug market and remained the dominant form of testosterone globally prior to 1960.

Testosterone is the primary androgen found in the body. Endogenous testosterone is synthesized by cells in the testis, ovary, and adrenal cortex. Therapeutically, testosterone is used in the management of hypogonadism, either congenital or acquired. Testosterone is also the most effective exogenous androgen for the palliative treatment of carcinoma of the breast in postmenopausal women.

Most esters are derived from carboxylic acids, and injectable testosterone is typically administered along with one or multiple esters. The addition of a carbon chain (ester) attached to the testosterone molecule controls how soluble it will be once it’s inside the bloodstream. The larger the carbon chain, the longer the ester, and the less soluble the medication; a  large/long ester will have a longer half-life. The inverse is true of short carbon chains, like the propionate ester, which acts rapidly upon the body and evacuates the body at a similar rate. With a three-carbon chain, the testosterone ester possesses the shortest half life of all testosterone esters at 4 days.

Mechanism of Action

Endogenous testosterone is responsible for sexual maturation at all stages of development throughout life. Synthetically, it is prepared from cholesterol. The function of androgens in male development begins in the fetus, is crucial during puberty, and continues to play an important role in the adult male.

TESTOSTERONE CYPIONATE INFORMATION 0 (0)

TESTOSTERONE CYPIONATE INFORMATION

TESTOSTERONE CYPIONATE INFORMATION here is an interesting fact is that testosterone was actually the first ever synthesized anabolic steroid. Specifically related to testosterone Cypionate, it is a slow-acting, long-ester, oil-based injectable testosterone compound that is commonly prescribed for the treatment of men suffering from hypogonadism or an array of other possible testosterone imbalance issues.

Testosterone Cypionate first appeared on the U.S. prescription drug market during the early 1950’s, as Depo-Testosterone by Upjohn, now Pharmacia & Upjohn. Now, because testosterone Cypionate is so molecularly similar to another ester of testosterone called Enanthate, which only has a slightly shorter ester, it wasn’t very well globally recognized and, furthermore, has been acknowledged as an American medication.

Anabolic steroids, derivatives of testosterone, have been used illicitly and are now controlled substances. Men participating in these type of programs appreciate the rapid results and the extraordinary muscle growth experienced from administering these substances; even at the end cost of eventually irreversible endocrine system malfunction.

Testosterone, like many anabolic steroids, was classified as a controlled substance in 1991.

Cypionate

Before providing any more testosterone cypionate information, let’s begin by explaining esters: An ester is described as any of a class of organic compounds that react with water to produce alcohols and organic or inorganic acids.  For the most part, esters are derived from carboxylic acids. The addition of a carbon chain (ester) attached to the testosterone molecule controls how soluble (how quickly it will dissolve and exit your body) it will be once inside the bloodstream. The smaller the carbon chain, the shorter the ester, and the more soluble the medication.

A smaller or shorter ester will have a shorter half-life, which is basically a depiction of the cycle of a medication’s functionality time while inside the body. Conversely, the opposite can be said of long carbon chains, such as Cypionate, which both acts slowly within the body and exits the body equally as slow. Studies and further testosterone cypionate information research show that participants of injectable Testosterone therapy may sometimes administer more than one ester of testosterone at a time. This option allows patients to manipulate their testosterone levels more efficiently, helping to avoid peak and valley levels and their associated side effects.

Testosterone Cypionate has a 7-day half-life:

  • This means it is in your body for 14 days
  • The first 7 days it’s working on increasing your levels
  • The last 7 days it’s working on exiting your body

The good and the bad

The Good:

The Testosterone Cypionate information that patients appreciate most is that, due to the longer carbon chain (ester), it only has to be administered every 7 days in order to catch it before it begins the process of exiting the body. Though AAI Rejuvenation Clinic does not use the standard, intramuscular needle tips that most other clinics use, as ours are significantly more comfortable to utilize, most patients would still rather administer their testosterone injections as least amount of times as possible.

The Bad:

The longer a medication stays functioning in the body, the higher the potentiality for side effects to emerge. Some side effects may be:

  • Acne
  • Bloating or water retention
  • Irritability
  • Weight gain

The good within the bad:

AAI Rejuvenation Clinic’s physicians will not organize a program that includes only Testosterone, regardless of the ester. Participating patients are prescribed and an array of accompanying nutraceuticals to help ensure side effects are kept at bay. These medications are individually prescribed based on the patient’s file details. Moreover, our patients will also receive intermittent blood tests to ensure that everything is running according to plan on your quest to reach your health and wellness goals.

The Different Types of Testosterone Protocols, We will go over the more popular testosterone protocols in this passage for educational and explanatory purposes, however, it’s imperative we emphasize that a real, health driven with the Different Types of Testosterone Protocols can only be structured by the patient’s prescribing physician.

Without things like:

  • Blood Work
  • Physical Exam
  • Medical History
  • Family History
  • Patient File

… your prescribing physician would not have a complete profile of your medical background and history to base your dosages and weekly routine on.

Issues such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • Excessively high prostate levels
  • Specific forms of diabetes
  • Elevated red blood counts (thick blood)
  • Excessive cortisol levels
  • Unique cardiac problems

… must be taken into consideration and regarded heavily when structuring a healthy and effective with The Different Types of Testosterone Protocols, if the intent is to experience a program free of negative side effects.

These ailments will also dictate the specifically incorporated nutraceuticals and additional supplements involved in structuring your entire AAI organized testosterone protocol.

Again, we stress that the protocols outlined below are not to be followed by anyone on a testosterone injections regimen. These are example protocols used to give interested prospects an idea of what they will be getting themselves into on their journey for extended youth and optimal health.

Protocol for a generally healthy man suffering from low Testosterone:

The Different Types of Testosterone Protocols for most men on testosterone are doing so as a result of age-related issues manifesting in their life and physiology. That being said, patients that attack their low testosterone concerns early and do not allow their bodies to fully experience the decline associated with maintaining extended periods of low hormone levels, usually will benefit greatly from a very basic, yet comprehensive testosterone program. That program usually goes as follows:

  • Day 1: Administer 50mg – 250mg of Testosterone (Ester determined by client file/goals)
  • Day1 or 2: Take 1x estrogen blocker or inhibitor by mouth (type determined by patient file).
  • Day 3: One injection of a sort of B-Vitamin/amino acid (type determined by patient file/goals)
  • Day 5: Take 1x estrogen blocker or inhibitor by mouth (type determined by patient file).
  • Day 6: Administer 1x injection of testosterone secretagogue 250 units – 800 units (25 – 80 on insulin syringe)
  • Day 7: Take 1x estrogen blocker or inhibitor by mouth (type determined by patient file) [sometimes 2x estrogen blockers a week is enough – determined by patient file]
  • Day 7: Administer 1x injection of testosterone injections secretagogue 250 units – 800 units (25 – 80 on insulin syringe)

Protocol for men focusing on muscle development (reverse lean muscle loss):

At AAI, we also help patients that are interested in aiding their physicality and trying to maximize their output. We’d like to be clear that we do NOT assist with performance enhancement, however, patients suffering from low Testosterone that is on testosterone therapy already have to work out and exercise in order to maximize their benefits and really get the most out of their programs.

  • Since that is already going to be done, dedicated patients really exerting the necessary efforts to change their body and look their best have options through AAI to assist them with their focuses.

Bare in mind, these same therapies also work wonderfully for patients that may react to therapy with too much aromatization (Estrogen accumulation).

Men experiencing excessive aromatization and/or lean muscle depletion and focusing on rebuilding muscle may be prescribed a similar protocol to the following:

  • Day 1: Administer 50mg – 150mg of a combination of Testosterone esters (Esters determined by client file/goals)
  • Day1 or 2: Take 1x estrogen blocker or inhibitor by mouth (type determined by patient file).
  • Day 3: One injection of a sort of B-Vitamin/amino acid (type determined by patient file/goals)
  • Day 4: Administer 50mg – 150mg of a combination of Testosterone esters (Esters determined by client file/goals)
  • Day 5: Take 1x estrogen blocker or inhibitor by mouth (type determined by patient file).
  • Day 6: Administer 1x injection of testosterone secretagogue 250 units – 800 units (25 – 80 on insulin syringe)
  • Day 7: Take 1x estrogen blocker or inhibitor by mouth (type determined by patient file) [sometimes 2x estrogen blockers a week is enough – determined by patient file]
  • Day 7: Administer 1x injection of testosterone injections secretagogue 250 units – 800 units (25 – 80 on insulin syringe)

These cycles would normally continue for anywhere between 6 – 9 months before there is a period in which the body needs to break and reactivate.

  • Remember, when you are artificially manipulating your testosterone therapy levels, other functions of the body stop operating since they don’t need to work on testosterone production due to the participant taking care of that exogenously (externally).

The breaking period normally referred to as the post cycle therapy consists of medications formulated to reactivate the dormant systems that weren’t being used while your testosterone therapy was being administered. Basic functions that need to be dealt with and re-activated are:

  • Your FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone): Signal from the brain to the testis to produce sperm.
  • Your LH (Luteinizing Hormone): Signal from the brain to the testis to produce testosterone.
  • A flux in estrogen accumulation after extended periods of high Testosterone levels
  • Water retention, decrease in libido and other sluggish side-effects associated with high Estradiol levels from a past cycle of testosterone injections.

What does a Post Cycle Therapy consist of?

Your post cycle therapy consists of a secretagogue to help stimulate the secretion of testosterone from the testis. The effort is to reignite its natural production. This medication mimics the signal from your brain to your testis (Luteinizing Hormone) to incite the production of testosterone, despite your levels being elevated due to therapy.

You will also take a blocker and/or an agonist (Clomid/Clomiphene is an example of this, which blocks certain types of estrogen from getting to the pituitary and hypothalamus and telling it to stop producing testosterone. Again, Clomid stops this form of estrogen signal from getting to those glands so, the brain never gets those estrogen indicators and continues the production of testosterone.), which will additionally help to reactivate the normal functionality of your LH and FSH signals. It helps to put them back in line while also assisting in flushing out any residual estrogen accumulated during therapy. It’s the residual estrogen accumulated during aromatization resulting from high testosterone levels from therapy that cause all the negative said effects always associated to and blamed on testosterone specifically.

It’s not the testosterone. It’s the lack of preventative measures and accurate incorporated medicinal facts that contribute to the manifestation of alarming side effects that can be easily avoided with a proper, physician organized and supervised The Different Types of Testosterone Protocols.

Post Cycle Protocol:

  • Administer 250 – 800 (25 – 80 on an insulin syringe) units of testosterone injection secretagogue (type determined by patient file) every day for 10 consecutive days.
  • Take 1x blocker/agonist by mouth every day for 10 – 15 consecutive days (type and amount of days determined by patient file)
