Testoviron is a combination of Testosterone Enanthate and Testosterone Propionate. Propionate and Enanthate are esters attached with the testosterone. Adding of esters with testosterone means that esters will help the substance to stay in the body for a longer period of time. One ester is long and other one is the shorter version. As long the ester is more time it would take to get activated and longer it would stay in the body. It is manufactured by Schering Company. Testoviron is an injectable version of the steroid. As told earlier that it is a mixture of two esters so the combined effect of both would also increase the active life of the Testoviron.
There are two major purposes of using the Testoviron. One purpose is for the hormone replacement and the other is for the performance enhancement and to keep the testosterone level at the peak. For hormone replacement therapy, Testoviron is to be injected after every 10 to 14 days. But in the case of performance enhancement frequent injections are necessary. There are four distinct doses of Testoviron available in the market. In the 50 mg dose, 20 mg is Testosterone Propionate and rest 30 mg is Testosterone Enanthate. In the dose of 100 mg, 25 mg is Testosterone Propionate and rest 75 mg is Testosterone Enanthate. In the dose of 135 mg, 25 mg is Testosterone Propionate and rest 110 mg is Testosterone Enanthate and in the final 250 mg dose, 50 mg is Testosterone Propionate and rest 200 mg is Testosterone Enanthate.
As the Testoviron is comprised of mixture of two testosterones so its benefits would be also same like that of the testosterones. Each of the benefit would be up to its best due to the major reason of having a combined effect of two testosterones. Major benefits include synthesis of protein, increase in the number of red blood cells and reduction of cortisol. As it increases the red blood cells in the body so it can also be used or prescribed by doctors for the treatment of anemia. As androgen content and anabolic power is very high in testosterone so this will also help in the rapid gains of the strength and lean mass in the body. As all testosterones are both androgenic as well as anabolic, so is the case with Testoviron.
There are also some side effects associated with the usage of Testoviron. If it is administered properly or with a proper guidance then there are very minor or perhaps no side effects. Most common of the side effect is that of aromatization. In aromatization the testosterones are converted into estrogens and this can bring in serious complications such as Gynecomastia, retention of water, high blood pressure and different cholesterol issues. In some cases Testicular Atrophy is also observed. In testicular atrophy the size of testicles shrinks and as synthetic form of testosterone is being given to the body so natural production of testosterone stops. But as you stop taking the Testoviron, natural production starts again. As these effects are mostly caused due to estrogen so if some drugs, which could be aromatize inhibitor, like Arimidex and Letrozole are taken, they may be of a great help in reducing or eliminating the associated side effects.
Normal dosage for Testoviron for beginners could be 500 mg per week. However some experienced users or athletes, who want performance enhancement, also use 1000 mg per week. Mostly its cycle consists of 8 weeks but it can also be increased from 12 to 16 weeks. It is also advised to have your Post Cycle Therapy started after 3 weeks of your final injection.
