Testosterone cypionate is very common form of testosterone which makes it very difficult to find in the market. Long lasting ability of this testosterone is considered to be its unique feature. Prior to the anabolic process schedule in US this steroid was very common and easily available but now it is very challenging to find. Some of the experts are found saying that cypionate is much better and superior than enanthate but it is not scientifically proven. In the current world, cypionate is being offered by the US government to be used but only for the hormone replacement therapy.
The increment in the lean tissue is considered as the most essential effect of cypionate. Once the lean tissue level is elevated, it initiates the metabolic level resulting in burning the body fat faster and gaining more muscles.
The only and key side effect of cypionate is seen once the aromatization process progresses and the testosterone present in the body initiates transforming to estrogen. This estrogen contains many side effects like experiencing gynecomastia problem, rapid escalation in the cholesterol, and a lot of retention of fluids in the body. The said side effects can be compensated if the cypionate is being used frequently but the side effects on the testicular atrophy are very dangerous and unavoidable. Cypionate increases the amount of testosterone hormones present in the body and results in the complete elimination of natural production process that causes the testicles to shrink.
It is found that most number of individuals are using around 200mg of cypionate every day and the cycles of 7-10 days are very frequent and easy to find. For first time users of cypionate 400mg to 500mg is found to be sufficient but this dosage is not suitable for long terms like 4 to 5 weeks. 1000mg dose every week can be used by body builders but many professionals consider this dose as harmful. Water retention is found to be the most important problem that needs to be organized. One common and effective way to control the water retention in the body after taking the dosages of cypionate is to simultaneously taking aromatase inhibitor.
