What to know about Testosterone Cypionate Injections
How it Works
Over several weeks after starting an injection protocol or changing dosage, your body will adjust to the new level of testosterone. Your doctor will help set treatment goals to measure your response while using testosterone. Once testosterone levels have stabilized to new levels, your doctor will likely want to see you every 3 – 6 months to conduct blood tests.
Who is it for?
