Cypionate vs Enanthate


Why is cypionate the preferred choice for HRT over enanthate? Is it the half life or something else?



Longer half life, longer ester, less frequent injections.


They are actually very simmilar versions of the same drug. Cypionate was origionally developed in North America, while Enanthate was developed in Europe.


An endocrinologist told me he prescribes Cyp becuz " that's what he was taught to do" when I asked him why he preferred Cyp over decanoate, I assume there's not much diff between test. enan and test. decan.
