Testosterone Cypionate Depot

If you have low testosterone levels, a healthcare provider may recommend testosterone cypionate (Depo®-Testosterone). This prescription medication is a type of hormone medication that is injected into a muscle. Testosterone cypionate is a depot injection. After being injected, the medication forms a small mass, or depot, in the muscle. The medicine is slowly released from this mass into the bloodstream over the course of two to four weeks.
 
The injections can be given at home by you or a friend or family member. They can also be administered by a healthcare provider. Your specific dosage will depend on several factors, including how you respond to this drug, other medications you are taking, and your testosterone levels. Side effects may include a decreased sperm count and pain at the injection site.
