Testosterone cypionate is an oil based testosterone product which will result in a rise of testosterone concentrations for several days after administration, followed by elevated levels for approximately two weeks. As with all testosterone products we have to be aware of its tendency to convert to oestrogen. Oestrogen related side effects have to be monitored, and ancillary drugs added to the cycle to combat them, if needed.
Water retention often becomes pronounced when using testosterone. This can bring about a softer less defined look to the user as subcutaneous fluids increase. Beware of possible rise in blood pressure when taking this product. Investing in a blood pressure monitor may prove a wise investment.
Gynecomastia can also be a side effect from excess oestrogen levels during or after a cycle. Puffy and/or sore nipples is a common early sign of gynecomastia formation. Gynecomastia is the formation of breast tissue, and if left untreated can result in a situation which requires surgery to correct.
Nolvadex can be taken upon the awareness of unwanted oestrogen related side effects. A better choice however would be to choose a powerful anti-aromatases such as arimidex, femara, or aromasin.
