What is “TRT” or Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
TRT or Testosterone Cypionate Therapy involves a weekly dose of Testosterone similar to that of which is produced in the body’s natural production of the hormone, i.e., 50-70mg every week. You might be wondering why someone would adopt this therapy, well, one of the reasons is, this can be used as a maintained dose, to keep the body in an Anabolic state for the user to bridge between his or her cycles, without the drop in their Testosterone levels. This should only be done when using two cycles close together such as, going from a bulking cycle onto a cutting cycle. Please note, if this is done, a good PCT will be needed after your second cycle is complete.
100mg a week is more than a sufficient TRT dosage. Some individuals will not even use this much for TRT treatment. Doctors have prescribed as low as 50mg of Test Cypionate for some patients. If the level goes higher than this, then there is the probability that the user might have the risk of Aromatization.
The most common difference that we know about, is the difference between Testosterone Enanthate and Testosterone Cypionate. This is that the Cypionate ester lasts longer than that of Enanthate. Testosterone Cypionate usage is limited within the US and only because of this, people switch to Testosterone Enanthate as it is more available.
