General Information About Testosterone Propionate

Testosterone propionate

When thinking about beginning a testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) program, it is wise to learn about all one’s options and this includes gathering general information about Testosterone Propionate. Here is list of important facts about this medication:

Testosterone Propionate General Facts:

  • It is a bio-identical chemical compound created from a single ester
  • It was the first commercially available testosterone medication to be developed
  • It is fast acting with a short half life (about two days)
  • A client will be required to stick to frequent self administration schedule when using this brand of medication

In other words, when a person uses propionate testosterone, the medication will leave the body quickly and the patient will need to give himself another injection within only a few days.

  • It will be administered intramuscularly mainly in the buttocks
  • This medication remained very popular for TRT until the 1960’s when it began to lose a lot of its popularity as more convenient forms of the drug were created

In other words, Testosterone Enanthate and Testosterone Cypionate started to take the place of this medication because they have much longer half lives and do not need to be administered as often.

  • It makes maintaining blood levels at a peak level easier and more stable because of the very frequent requirement of injecting it into the system  
  • It is a smaller ester base than the other brands
  • It was once used for therapeutic low T issues, but now has moved to being used for performance enhancement (not legally prescribed by licensed doctors)

What Is Testosterone Propionate?

Testosterone propionate, when created by reputable laboratories is a 100 percent pure testosterone hormone. It is bio-identical to what the body already produces. In fact, it is said to be an exact replica of what the body makes. It is a small or short ester that can control its release in the body, but has a very short half life of approximately two days.
