Availability of Testosterone Cypionate
Because people are allowed to use this testosterone legally (through a prescription), it is not often that you will find Testosterone cypionate in the black market. Most of the Testosterone cypionate in the US is manufactured by two companies – Watson and Upjohn – and little of it finds its way to the black market. But there are several companies outside the US that make it along with many underground labs. It is not uncommon to find contaminated products. In fact, Testosterone cypionate is one of the most counterfeited steroids.
When first administering steroids, a man will have an increase in sexual function. This unfortunately is only temporary as your body becomes used to the steroid in its system. With prolonged use of a steroid, eventually, the man will feel less sexual desire, and will be less capable of maintaining an erection. Luckily, this is only temporary as well and can even be totally prevented with the use of substance such as Gonakor and HCG. Also when the steroid use is discontinued, the body’s natural level of testosterone (like the immune system) will certainly be suppressed.
Some minor side effects include acne, oily skin, and a not so minor one in baldness. But the side effects don’t stop here. As I’ve said, anabolic steroids raise testosterone levels via synthetic androgens. This confuses your body and as a result, it decreases and even stops your body’s own secretion of testosterone. Thus, during “off” cycles, testosterone becomes so low that the users have a hard time holding on to their gains resulting in a rapid loss of strength and muscle. Although anabolic steroids don’t cause the same “high” as other illegal drugs, this concept makes it prone to abuse and addiction.
