Re: how long does testosterone injections take to work

Assuming you are injecting Test-Cypionate your levels should
elevate steadily upward to a peak at around 48 hours then begin
a downslide and at the fifth day take a steeper drop path. How
you feel should be at optimum for that dosage at about 48 hours.
Other forms of testosterone like propionate or enanthate etc,
have a somewaht different timing.

Re: how long does testosterone injections take to work

LA is right that your levels from the first shot, or any given shot, will peak around 48 hours after the shot. However with T cyp, being an oil, it takes quite some time for all of it to be absorbed. About a month. Lets say you take weekly injections. When you take the 2nd injection, some of the first injection still has not been abosrbed. Finally after about one month of injections your T level will reach it's peak level about 48 hours after that 4th injection. So, it can take up to a month to feel the full effects. If you were to stop injections it would likewise not all be out of your system for at least one month.
