The Strategic Use of Four Kinds of Testosterone – Cypionate, Enanthate, Propionate, Suspension

There are four different types of testosterone: Cypionate, Enanthate, Propionate and Suspension. There are many people wondering whether it would be effective to combine these four together to have a better advantage on them or that this thing would make no difference in results.

The main difference between these four types of testosterone is the duration of action for each of them. Also, there is another difference that regards the amount of actual testosterone that is contained in each milligram of drug. The order of the four types in what regards the concentration of testosterone per milligram, starting from the highest concentration to the least-high – which is still high – is the following:

-          Suspension

-          Propionate

-          Enanthate

-          Cypionate

When it comes to practice, it is not recommended to count on this, as usually people do not keep count on these things when they decide the dosage of testosterone that they are going to use. As in what regards the duration of action, from shortest to longest, the above mentioned order of testosterone types is also the same.

When it comes to practical purposes, these two types of testosterone – Cypionate and Enanthate – can be used interchangeably. The half-life of Enanthate is said to be about four or five days and the half-life of Cypionate is thought to be about one day longer than that of Enanthate.

This being said, the point is that both these testosterone types clear from the body relatively slow at the end of a cycle, which means that the period when the levels are not high enough to allow further gains, neither are they low enough to allow recovery is relatively long.

Testosterone Propionate

testosterone_propionateThe half-life of Testosterone Propionate is about two days, which is much shorter than that of the other two mentioned before. Therefore, this type of testosterone clears from the body relatively quick at the end of a cycle. The half-life of the testosterone means the duration in which the levels of the drug drop by 50%. An example is a drug that has the half-life of only one day, which means:

-          After one day, the levels of the drug have fallen to ½

-          After two days, the levels have fallen to ¼

-          After three days, the levels have fallen to 1/8 and so on

Testosterone Suspension

Testosterone_SuspensionThe duration of action of Testosterone Suspension is variable and it can last from several days and up to a week or even more. In case of Testosterone Suspension, the levels do not drop the same manner as in other types – that of half-life – but in a different pattern.

In this type, the particles of this drug slowly dissolve and then they slowly shrink. As the particles shrink and their surface area decreases, the release slows.

At some point, any particle will completely disappear. The action of the suspension ends when nearly all of the particles have entirely dissolved. Because of the way this drug works, the duration depends on the size of the particles contained by the suspension. This size varies depending on product.


If the suspension of testosterone is good, then it can be used in a similar way as the testosterone propionate. It is recommended to save the propionate and the suspension to be used at the end of a cycle, as they allow a faster transition from high levels that allow gains to low levels that allow recovery. Those who use propionate esters and suspension strategically at the end of a cycle allow a quick recovery.
