Testosterone: History and basic information
Testosterone is a product that, despite being used in such a widespread manner for sporting and aesthetic use relatively recently, has been around in research and medical circles for almost two centuries.
The item started out as abstract, that was taken from animal testes by researchers and examined, with a host of benefits theorized about its administration in humans. Once these benefits were confirmed and the synthetic creation of Testosterone Enanthate became possible, mass production and use quickly followed. First, this was as a form of treatment for ailments, then it quickly found its way into the regimes of high level athletes after the Soviets began using it to help their athletes. Then, aesthetic athletes started using it.
Fast forward three decades and it has become one of the most popular drugs around, being used to help improve appearance and sportive capability. It’s recreational use is even surpassing that of medical and research uses, despite heavy government regulation and increased difficulty in getting Testosterone Enanthate.
Structurally, Testosterone Enanthate is similar to its endogenous counterpart, and to other esteroides versions of Testosterone. It’s main difference is that it has the Enanthate chemical delivery agent attached to it, known commonly as an ester. This is a relatively more gradual and slower acting delivery agent, with an active-life of around 8 days, meaning less injections of the item will be needed per period of activity of the Testosterone supplement in the body.
Another minor difference that should be noted is that, due to the structure of the chemical delivery agent, this form of Testosterone contains more free Testosterone (the part that acts on the body) than other long-acting forms, such as Testosterone Cypionate. This gives it the potential to be a more potent chemical on a milligram-per-milligram basis, and more efficient chemical as a result.
Mechanisms of action in the body and common outcomes
Testosterone Cypionate operates in the body in a similar manner to other anabolic compounds. Namely, it binds to specific androgen receptors and converts to DHT as part of this process, in order to change the signaling in specific cells on a molecular level to cause a global change across the body in the process and results for outcomes like greater tissue mass and faster recovery.
It should be noted that, while the DHT conversion elicits the desired effect of Testosterone Cypionate, it’s also a driving factor for many undesirable events such as skin issues, virilizing effects in women, and balding.
It also has a moderate to high affinity for partial conversion to the estrogen hormone, which increases risk of fluid and fat gains with use, although this also makes it useful for increasing mass overall. It also raises the risk of incurring a large amount of tissue buildup around the breasts, known as gynecomastia.
The latter of these adverse effects explains usually why items like Nolvadex, Clomid and Arimidex are used to try managing and preventing these issues. These may also be of some use with people who experience prostate issues. As with all Testosterone products, the endogenous manufacturing of the hormone in the body will be reduced or even ceased with prolonged use, due to an impact on HPTA function. So, many individuals also employ a regime, here after known as Post Cycle Therapy, where the above-mentioned items are used with HCG, in order to aid recovery of the body’s natural production.
Although, it should be noted that, while the above-mentioned issues are something to be carefully considered, the severity and commonality of their occurrence would still be lower than more potent agents. They are also far easier to manage and may even be preventable, particularly with careful management of dose and the period of time over which it’s employed.
Administration, dose, and regular use information
The longer acting and more gradual releasing nature of Testosterone Enanthate makes it more useful for beginner users, who may prefer a lower frequency of injection, in order to obtain the benefits of such supplementation.
Although, it should also be noted that, just as the perks are lasting and sustained longer, so are any undesirable effects incurred from its use.
In general, an amount of 250 to 1000 milligrams would most commonly be injected for those using the Testosterone Enanthate to either improve their appearance or boost their capability for training and competition. This would most commonly be done through an intramuscular injection, with sterile equipment of course, in one of many common sites in the body, including the lateral deltoid muscle in the side shoulder, or the glute muscles in the buttocks.
However, it is commonly practiced to heat the oil in the vial first, in order to soften the texture of it and make it easier to administer. This is usually done by boiling a cup of water and, after it has boiled, letting it cool slightly before placing the bill into the water for around 10 seconds. This should help ensure a smoother experience and prevent issues like soreness following administration.
Another tip for avoiding excessive soreness following injection is to rotate the sites that you use for administering the agent. Cleaning the area you are about to administer the Testosterone Enanthate into can also help with preventing infections in the site thereafter too. All of which is useful for beginners who may not be used to the discomfort of taking such agents.
It’s also key to ensure you don’t take Testosterone Enanthate for an excessively long period of time. The most common period of use is between 8 to 12 weeks. However, it should be noted that there have been instances where experienced practitioners have gone past this period, with some reporting continuous use for as long as a year. However, such prolonged use would not have been without a large share of negative effects accompanying any benefits.
Also, important information for beginners includes the fact that Testosterone Enanthate will be pretty hard to come across, and some sources that offer it might overcharge you. The former is due to government regulation and the latter is often due to you, not knowing the usually cost of it. This is why you should try to stick with reputable vendors and do your homework on the price and where is a trustworthy place to get your drugs (through checking for reviews and previous users experience). This will help you save some money and make sure you’re not getting ripped off or even putting yourself in a risky position with the inclusion of a counterfeit or contaminated form of Testosterone Enanthate into your plans.
