I recently starting using this form of testosterone via IM 3 weeks ago, and found that this is a painful injection. I have noticed a painful lump at the injection site which lasts for several days, but always goes away. Since Propionate requires more frequest injections vs other types of testosterone, I feel this causes more muscle irritation than other forms.

I started taking the shots for a low t level of 218. For the first month or two the shot seemed to help then gradually the loss of energy, lack of desire and depression came back. Doctor put me on a shot per week for six weeks to jumpstart t levels, after shots t level only rose to 231. Doctor has now changed me to androgel cream, will start in morning; hopefully this will work

I take injections every other day - and they usually result in painful lump for several days after each injection. But, I do feel much better in general and my symptoms have lessened. Going to 100mg/ml concentration improved the post injection pain, versus 200mg/ml where the pain was pronounced. My dosage didn't change, just diluted it with more oil (this keeps the oil from absorbing quickly, leaving testosterone crystals in the muscle to inflame the tissue).

age 62 and in pretty good shape. Had 2 hip replacements in the past 2 years and had trouble with getting that weight lifting energy back. Did 1/2 cc twice a week for 3 weeks and felt nothing, maybe even worse. And those shot are murder with pain for 4-5 days after. So far Test Propionate is a none recommend from me

Having been on hormone replacement therapy for nearly 10 years and having tried many protocols and compounds, Test Propionate is a great compound to use, however, the profile of this drug on this site, and some other users dosing, is never going to give them benefits. Being an extremely short chained ester based compound, this drug has a very short active life in the blood stream and MUST be dosed at LEAST Every Other Day! Once a week will only give you a boost in blood levels for 24-48 hours tops and then your back to zero, this would make me very depressed too! Once a month, as this site suggests on its profile, is criminal for this drug. Testosterone Enanthate or Cypionate is much better suited to once weekly injections because it has a much longer active life due to them having longer esters attached. to get the proper benefit, you need a progress, knowledgable endo, not a gp or do, match the dose to the compound, throw in a good anti estrogen, and you will feel like a new person, trust me, you wont go back.

This write by Web MD has grossly inacurate information about this ester. TP is not injected once every 1 - 4 weeks. It MUST be inject once every THREE DAYS as its half life is 4.5 days. Injecting at a less frequent rate will cause further suppression of your natural levels without any benefit. If you prefer to inject only once a week then you need Testosterone Cypionate, a longer ester (8 carbon molecules) slows the release into your system and by the third week you have a perfect physiological dose at only 100 mg weekly for most men. Rarely would a man need more than 150 mg TC weekly. Also this webiste indicates that testosterone causes Prostate cancer which is also inaccurate. It may cause BPH, but Prostate Cancer is caused by high estrogen levels above 39 ng/dl. Taking testosterone can raise your estorgen levels thru conversion by the aromatase enzyme. If your doctor is monitoring your testosterone level without monitoring your estrogen levels, they are not doing their due diligence.
