Testosterone Cypionate Side Effects

Possible Side Effects

Testosterone cypionate is an older medication. As such, the information available on potential side effects is not as detailed as it is for newer medications. In fact, the prescribing information for this medication simply lists side effects that have been reported with androgens in general (not specifically for testosterone cypionate).
 
According to this limited information, some of the possible testosterone cypionate side effects include but are not limited to:
 
  • Breast development
  • Increased frequency and duration of penile erections
  • Low sperm count (especially at high dosages)
  • Body and facial hair growth
  • Male pattern baldness
  • Acne
  • Increased or decreased sex drive
  • Headaches
  • Inflammation and pain at the injection site.
 

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the testosterone cypionate side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while using testosterone cypionate or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
