Testosterone enanthate

Quick overview:

Active Life: 15-16 days
Drug Class: Anabolic/Androgenic Steroid (for injection)
Average Dose: Men 250-1000 mg/week
Acne: Yes
Water Retention: Yes, high
High Blood Pressure: Yes
Liver Toxic: Low, except in mega dosages
Aromatization:Yes, high
DHT Conversion: Yes, high
Decrease HPTA function: Yes, severe

Testosterone enanthate is an oil based injectable steroid, designed to slowly release testosterone from the injection site (depot). Once administered, serum concentrations of this hormone will rise for several days, and remain markedly elevated for approximately two weeks. It may actually take three weeks for the action of this drug to fully diminish. For medical purposes this is the most widely prescribed testosterone, used regularly to treat cases of hypogonadism and other disorders related to androgen deficiency. Since patients generally do not selfadminister such injections, a long acting steroid like this is a very welcome item. Therapy is clearly more comfortable in comparison to an ester like propionate, which requires a much more frequent dosage schedule.

Testosterone is a powerful hormone with notably prominent side effects. Much of which stem from the fact that testosterone exhibits a high tendency to convert into estrogen. Related side effects may therefore become a problem during a cycle. For starters, water retention can become quite noticeable. This can produce a clear loss of muscle definition, as subcutaneous fluids begin to build. The storage of excess body fat may further reduce the visibility of muscle features, another common problem with aromatizing steroids. The excess estrogen level during/after your cycle also has the potential to lead up to gynecomastia. Adding an ancillary drug like Nolvadex and/or Proviron is therefore advisable to those with a known sensitivity to this side effect. The anti-aromatase Arimidex, Femara, or Aromasin are a much better choices though. It is believed that the use of an anti-estrogen can slightly lower the anabolic effect of most androgen cycles (estrogen and water weight are often thought to facilitate strength and muscle gain), so one might want to see if such drugs are actually necessary before committing to use. A little puffiness under the nipple is a sign that gynecomastia is developing. If this is left to further develop into pronounced swelling, soreness and the growth of small lumps under the nipples, some form of action should be taken immediately to treat it (obviously quitting the drug or adding ancillaries like Nolvadex).

Being a testosterone product, all the standard androgenic side effects are also to be expected. Oily skin, acne, aggressiveness, facial/body hair growth and male pattern baldness are all possible. Older or more sensitive individuals might therefore choose to avoid testosterone products, and look toward milder anabolics like DecaDurabolin or Equipoise which produce fewer side effects. Others may opt to add the drug Proscar/Propecia, which will minimize the conversion of testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone). With blood levels of this metabolite notably reduced, the impact of related side effects should also be reduced. With strong bulking drugs however, the user will generally expect to incur strong side effects and will often just tolerate them. Most athletes really do not find the testosterones all that uncomfortable (especially in the face of the end result), as can be seen with the great popularity of such compounds.

Although this particular ester is active for a much longer duration, most prefer to inject it on a weekly or bi-weekly basis in order to keep blood levels stable. The usual dosage would be in the range of 250mg-750mg a week. This level is quite sufficient, and should provide the user a rapid gain of strength and body weight. Above this level estrogenic side effects will no doubt become much more pronounced, possibly outweighing any new muscle gained. Those looking for greater bulk would be better served by adding an oral like Anadrol or Dianabol, combinations which prove to work great. If one wishes to use a testosterone yet retain a level of quality and definition to the physique, an injectable anabolic like DecaDurabolin or Equipoise may prove to be a better choice. Here we can use a lower dosage of enanthate, so as to gain an acceptable amount of muscle but keep the buildup of estrogen to a minimum.

With the proper administration of ancillary drugs, Nolva/Clomid and HCG, during post cycle recovery, much of the new muscle mass can be retained for a long time after the cycle has been stopped.

Sustanon 250 is an unnecessary complication of 4 different esters. They offer no synergy, unlike other stacks. After you have been on enanthate or cypionate for 3 or 4 weeks and take weekly or bi-weekly injections, you will appreciate the steadier state of your test levels. The tiny initial blast of test prop isn't always welcome in Sust 250 (source of "sust flu"? or is it the solvents), nor are the long esters that are supposed to last 3- 4 weeks and will delay pct. IMO its something you used because at one time it was cheap and available pharmaceutical. Now, underground labs can supply pure esters and that's the way to go. After you have been on it for a while, there is no added value in a blend of 4 esters.

Oh . Thankyou ! I guess I just have to try enanthate to really know how my body responds to it !”? . I really loved sustanon even though I have nothing to compete it to personally since Iv only tried sus :) Was Just thinking about a short winstrol cycle and everything I read says stack it with Test . Test is test? So I figure I should try a new compound

Test E is all I run in regards to test and that makes it pretty easy to turn up your test when ready to switch from TRT to a blast, I've never ran Sust so I can't say if there is much difference but I prefer test e compared to prop but that's just my opinion.

Ok so from what I understand Test E allows for more stable levels . I’m now just learning why that is important .

Generally more frequent pinning allows for more stable levels. The ester length will dictate the frequency at which you need to pin to achieve somewhat stable levels. I like to pin test e 3x a week. I feel a slight drop doing 2x a week. I'd probably pin test u 2x a week as well. Could purely be a mental thing

No it’s not a mental thing you are right . I was just doing a bit of research . If u wanted to keep the levels completely steady you could pin every day but pinning every day is uncomfortable . You will always feel the best with steady levels but the longer eaters have more time to turn into E2 .

No test e is just test with the enanthate ester attached.
You can achieve stable bloods with any compound. Stable bloods is a topic people debate over and is as much a personal choice as the water you use.

Hey @sammy this is a 13 year old profile thread, not a thread for you to ask questions and blather on about nothing. Start your own thread in the proper forum to ask questions about sustanon or test e.
