Types of Testosterone Shots

  • Testosterone Cypionate: One of the most common forms of testosterone injections, it's typically administered every 1-2 weeks. This is an oil-based injection, and it's meant for intramuscular use.
  • Testosterone Enanthate: Another common form, testosterone enanthate is similar in structure to testosterone cypionate. The frequency of administration is usually every 1-2 weeks, and it's also oil-based and meant for intramuscular use.
  • Testosterone Propionate: This is a faster-acting form of testosterone and requires more frequent injections, typically every 2-3 days. It's less commonly used due to the frequent injection schedule.
  • Testosterone Undecanoate: This is a longer-acting form of testosterone that can be administered every 10-14 weeks, making it convenient for those who prefer less frequent shots. However, it requires a specialized healthcare setting for administration.
