    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

    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

    Comment:
    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.
