Although Testosterone Suspension is not the most popular variant of Testosterone, it holds a certain amount of favorability among a niche group of athletes and bodybuilders that enjoy its use. Testosterone Suspension is actually the least popular among the four most popular variants of Testosterone (Testosterone Enanthate, Testosterone Cypionate, Testosterone Propionate, and Testosterone Suspension). Those who immensely enjoy it do so because of the Testosterone Suspension dosage being of much higher potency and faster action than all other forms of Testosterone. The administration of Testosterone Suspension doses initially among the medical establishment proved to be troublesome, as the Testosterone Suspension injections are known to be very painful and irritating to the injection site, and the requirement of very frequent injections were not very convenient for most patients.
The use of Testosterone Suspension doses for the purpose of physique and performance enhancement tend to be even more troublesome for most users, as even more frequent injections of a given Testosterone Suspension dosage are required so as to maintain stable and steady optimal blood plasma levels. Because the half-life of Testosterone Suspension is so short, and the requirement is at least one injection per day (ideally, multiple daily injections are required), many are turned off from its use. This is why many anabolic steroid users, especially beginners, will opt for the long estered Testosterone variants (such as Enanthate and Cypionate), as they exhibit a much longer half-life and require far less frequent administration. The benefit of any given administration of a Testosterone Suspension dosage is that it is pretty much immediately active in the human body once administered, resulting in rapid rises to optimal peak blood plasma levels.
As previously mentioned in the introduction, it is important for all readers to understand that a given Testosterone Suspension dosage contains far more pure and active Testosterone per mg of injection than any other forms of Testosterone. Therefore, the Testosterone Suspension dosage required to elicit positive effects on performance and physique enhancement might not always necessarily have to be as high of a dosage as other Testosterone preparations. To give an example and comparison, the following is a list of approximate amounts of pure Testosterone contained in a given amount of the four most popular Testosterone preparations:
100mg Testosterone Suspension (un-esterified Testosterone) = 100mg Testosterone
100mg Testosterone Propionate = 80mg Testosterone
100mg Testosterone Enanthate = 70mg Testosterone
100mg Testosterone Cypionate = 69mg Testosterone
Medical Testosterone Suspension Dosage
Clinically and medically, the medical Testosterone Suspension dosage utilized for the purpose of the treatment of hypogonadism (insufficient androgen production) is that of 25mg administered 2 – 3 times per week.
Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Testosterone Suspension Dosage
For the most part, due to the inconvenient and uncomfortable nature of Testosterone Suspension, this preparation of Testosterone is widely considered to be an advanced level anabolic steroid. The majority of users that tend to utilize Testosterone Suspension happens to be advanced level athletes or bodybuilders that have already attempted perhaps years of many cycles of other compounds. For the most part, Testosterone Suspension tends to scare away many beginner (and even intermediate) anabolic steroid users due to the uncomfortable injections and the requirement for frequent administrations. Normally, once the individual has attempted the use of even short-estered anabolic steroids (such as Testosterone Propionate or Trenbolone Acetate) and experienced more frequent injections, they would be prepared to enter the world of Testosterone Suspension doses that must be administered, for the most part, even more frequently.
For beginner anabolic steroid users, the Testosterone Suspension dosage required for the purpose of performance and physique enhancement is in the range of 100mg administered every other day (although it is highly recommended to administer at least once daily injections to maintain stable blood plasma levels). Ideally, an intermediate Testosterone Suspension dosage is normally in the range of 50 – 100mg per day. An example of an advanced Testosterone Suspension dosage is in the range of as high as 100 – 200mg per day. Such a high dose administered as frequently as every day (or multiple times per day) can elicit very rapid strength and mass gain in a very short time period.
Female Testosterone Suspension Dosage
Testosterone Suspension is almost never recommended for female use, and is used very rarely in females in the medical field. If it is to be administered to females medically, it is used almost exclusively (and very rarely) in the treatment of female breast cancer, and is furthermore utilized as a last-resort therapy. The Testosterone Suspension dosage for this purpose can be anywhere from 50 – 100mg administered 2 – 3 times per week.
Testosterone Suspension is not recommended for females for the purpose of performance and physique enhancement, as the risk of virilization symptoms is just far too high due to the very strong androgenic properties of Testosterone Suspension, as well as its very fast acting capabilities.
Proper Administration and Timing of Testosterone Suspension Dosage
Testosterone Suspension is a water-based form of Testosterone whereby the Testosterone itself is contained in micrycrystalline format that is suspended in water. The vial must be shaken vigorously prior to injection in order to properly and evenly disperse the hormone before withdrawing it for injection. Testosterone Suspension doses, because of the very short half-life (~24 hours), must be injected ideally every day. Many athletes and bodybuilders will even inject Testosterone Suspension multiple times per day in order to achieve far more stable and steady optimal blood plasma levels.
Testosterone Suspension, due to the nature of the preparation being a solid microcrystal suspension in water, is known to be a very painful injection that frequently causes local irritation, pain, swelling, and redness. The needle requirement for the injection of suspensions is of a much larger gauge than for oil-based compounds, frequently being no smaller than a 22 or 23 gauge. Some veterinary Testosterone Suspension products contain even larger crystals suspended in water, and can require needle gauges as large as 21 gauge for proper injection, which can be very uncomfortable (especially when injecting a compound frequently). The human preparations containing microcrystals are generally better tolerated than some of the cruder and larger crystalline suspensions made by veterinary or underground laboratories.
Expectations and Results from Testosterone Suspension Dosage
Testosterone Suspension, due to the extremely fast acting nature, can produce some of the most rapid size and strength gains ever seen from any anabolic steroid. There is also some evidence of localized muscle growth as a result of no ester being affixed to the Testosterone molecule, and therefore some of the Testosterone injected into a muscle can exhibit direct activity on that muscle very soon after injection. It is not uncommon for users to put on rapid bulk within the first week of administrations of a Testosterone Suspension dosage, often in the range of 5 – 10 lbs within the first week (or even the first several days, depending on the Testosterone Suspension dosage). Often times, Testosterone Suspension is not even utilized in a full cycle, and instead is used an occasional supplementary compound for a pre-workout or pre-event boost to strength and aggression due to its very fast acting nature.
