Inject T USP ?
« on: April 17, 2018, 03:37:35 am »
Does anyone inject T USP IM as TRT ?
 (Recognizing that it cannot be injected SQ as it would aroamatize immediately)
TRT, not roid abusers (no offense intended).

Maybe you can rephrase, as to me it seems as though you're just asking if we inject USP-grade testosterone, which we do, and subQ as well.

In the context of medications it usually means something was produced according to the standards of the United States Pharmacopeia.

why would it be any different than regular grape-seed oil? I'm assuming everyone on this board is using USP grade oil as they get it from a doctor??

You need some assurance of product purity, and with injectables, lack of microbiological contamination. USP is one such standard. "Prescription and over-the-counter medicines available in the United States must, by federal law, meet USP-NF public standards, where such standards exist. Many other countries use the USP-NF instead of issuing their own pharmacopeia, or to supplement their government pharmacopeia."

Rephrase

Does anyone inject pure Testosterone USP, not an ester, IM as TRT ?

More common names include testosterone suspension, testosterone base, TNE (testosterone, no-ester). It can be injected subQ. Certainly some of the steroid (ab)users do that. I'm not aware of evidence that you get significantly more aromatization this way than with IM. Absorption is a little slower.

It would not commonly be used for TRT because you need to inject at least daily, maybe even twice daily; the half life is pretty short, as I recall. The water-based injections can be painful because you're actually inserting small crystals that dissolve. You need larger needles too so they won't clog.

And no, I haven't tried it, but have some interest in it because of the possibility that you could better recreate a diurnal variation in T levels with suspension, perhaps taken in combination with an ester.
