Cypionate 250 containing the active ingredient Testosterone Cypionate (250 mg) is considered an androgen and anabolic steroid medication. Most often, this drug is used by athletes, mainly in bodybuilding. Cypionate 250 is one of the most “long” testosterone esters, with an average duration of action up to 14-17 days, due to which there is no need for frequent injections, as is the case with the same Propionat. Of course, for most athletes, this is more a positive feature of the drug than the other way around.
Cypionate 250 is the most popular prolonged testosterone ester among American athletes, since the United States has a high production volume of this particular form of testosterone, while the trend towards the use of Testosterone Enanthate prevails worldwide. Comparing the two steroids, we can say that they can be an alternative to each other, and have a similar nature of action and there is no fundamental difference, so the choice of one or the other is rather a matter of convenience.
Cypionate 250 is one of the few steroids that are effective even without combining with other steroids. One can safely count on serious gains in muscle mass, strength and endurance.
How is Cypionate 250 used ?
Injections are done once in 7 days. The dose is adjusted individually, on average up to 600 mg. If there is an experience of testosterone use, it is allowed to increase the dose to 1 g, but no longer. The blocking of any estrogenic effects is possible by taking Proviron, Nolvadex. The best combinations for building muscle mass are considered combinations of Cypionat 250 with Deca 300 or Deca 500.
With the wrong use of the drug or its overdose, side effects occur:
- baldness or the appearance of excessive hair on body is caused by the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. In this case, the dosage of the drug is reduced, or drugs that contribute to the opposite effect are added to the cycle (for example, Finasteride);
- prostate enlargement is similar to previous reasons, is corrected in the same way under the supervision of a physician;
- Acne rash is leveled out by strict adherence to the diet and the use of personal hygiene products (lotions, antiseptics, dietary supplements against acne). In cases of hypersensitivity to dihydrotestosterone, it is better to stop Cypionat 250 usage in general;
- swelling due to water retention in the body.
Under the influence of male hormones, masculine features may appear in women – coarsening of the skin, excessive body hair, changes in body fat.
