Cypionate vs Enanthate For TRT?

Anyone used both Test E and Test C for TRT and noticed any differences or differences in their blood results?

I have read people stating that E2 is higher on Test C than E but surely this is nonsense?

Would be good if anyone actually has any data/results for this or has used both and got different results.

I use a blend that is 200mg test C and 20mg Test E. So my vial has 220mg/ml. Test C is better in many ways. Some guys have reported that Test E simply doesnt check all of the boxes. Not enough of the boost that theyre looking for. Test C takes time to build up before you feel the benefits. Test E acts within hours but the half life of what remains is what tends to confuse most. Test E as a daily shot works fine, allowing it to build up simply isnt going to be as significant as Test C. Labs may give you a set of numbers to go by, but feeling is always lacking for those on Test E. Switch and you will see what I mean.

I hear you.

I was on Test E for a long time, about a year, I am one week switched to Test C on an EOD schedule but have lost a bit of muscle firmness and strength.

It’s concerned me so I’ve been trying to get as much data as I can.

My problem has always been not giving things time, I’m trying to give it a good month or more to build up but haven’t been able to work out since switching.

I do feel a bit calmer and happier though which is strange.

Have you noticed any differences in your E2 between the E and C?

You’re in flux. Your E levels may have dropped a bit and you may be losing some water weight plus E is anabolic and muscle fullness is somewhat stalled until you stabilize. Give it a full 3 months, and test. If you need more T, give it to yourself, and E will rise too. Dont fear Estradiol.

huhhhhhh , huhhhhhh and huhhhhhh . Why would anyone make or use that blend ?? Test is Test and lol at Test E starting to act in hours . Where do you guys come up with this shit ?

Look it up. I did my research. If all Test is the same then there wouldn’t be any variation or blends. Pharmacokinetics is pretty mysterious in a scientific kinda way.

i don’t need to look it up … u keep believing that pal.

I really dont care about you, but for the individual who reads this later, it should make sense.
So let me put it like this… when you go in for a blood test… why do you go in before your shot? Its because blood serum levels will be high if you go in after your shot. Hence, Testosterone does start to work its way into your bloodstream within hours. Adding an extra molecule to a blend will prolong this process and make it last longer in the blood stream. Now with that said, you sound like a swell guy, but you belong to dumb guy club, and thats where I draw the line. I cant help you understand this stuff. So you keep believing what you believe and have a nice day. I will not reply to anything else you have to say.

That’s a very simple way to look at it, but dig deeper and you’ll find that many men respond differently to various ester blends, for some the difference is dramatic.

I have and I noticed zero difference, as is the case with most guys. However, there are a few that prefer one over the other, not very many. I can’t say there has been any significant difference in their lab results. One had an allergic reaction to cypionate. Almost everyone gets cypionate, but if enanthate is preferred or if one of the internet guys wants to try it, I do not care. The cost is the same.

You go in before your shot because you want to get your trough numbers. So ppl who take test prop daily when do they go for a blood test moron !!!

@middleages @systemlord I literally feel like shit this week, so tired ad run down, cant workout etc, i feel like just injecting some Test E ad going back to it, surely the test would be in my system from Test C at this point?

Then switch back. No point in carrying on with the experiment anymore. You clearly have a better response to Test E. Please report back if you notice a change once you switch back.

For me, although the blood work numbers might stabilize around the commonly quoted six week mark, I don’t think think my entire body adjusts to regime changes for a few months. So, I take a methodical, long view approach.

@middleages @systemlord So just reporting back, couldnt hack it any longer, my Dr told me that it can take 6 weeks for Cyp to ‘kick in’ however I dont think i should have experienced the diminishing effects that i did, especially in terms of physique and muscles etc, within 3 days of switching back, I am completely back to feeling normal again physically, have been to the gym 5 times in the last week, its a mystery but my body is extremely sensitive to any changes which concerns me long term in case at some point I am forced to change medication etc but switched back to Test E and will stay on it, also started daily injections of 7mg which has seemed to not give me that rush that I get on Test E when I inject over 20mg, will be getting labs done over the next few days so will post them too, all a bit strange lol Definitely not ‘all in my head’ my partner and Mother even commented on how I looked different, skinnier and smaller

Are they in different carrier oils? Different solvents or preservatives?

Yea Test E is in refined castor oil and the Test C is in Olive oil, not sure about preservatives etc, but this wasnt like a reaction or bad reaction, it literally felt like I had extremely low T, it felt like when I injected the Test C it was like injecting water, very strange, I know that it could be that the C needed to build up but I mean I wouldnt have thought it would cause that kind of low or valley etc

Very interesting. Glad you made the switch back and you’re getting back to being you. Proof that Test is not just Test. The carrier method plays a big role in how you may feel from different esters. Happy 4th!

7 mgs a day… you’re kidding right? , you do realize the labs you get in the next few days will not mean anything? please post these labs for all to see !!! I swear you can’t make this shit up wow wow wow. Keep rooting him on @middleages lol
