    If you have been diagnosed with low testosterone or you have heard of conditions that are closely related to low testosterone, you may have heard of testosterone Sustanon injections before as it’s one of the most popular treatments for low testosterone in men. These injections are designed to help raise the level of testosterone in the body and combat the side effects of low testosterone. Sustanon injections are one of the many possible treatments that have been found to help with low testosterone.

    The reason for the success of Sustanon injections in men is that they contain testosterone esters, which are variations of testosterone, which is naturally occurring in men. This hormone is produced in the testicles, but there are times when the body doesn’t produce enough testosterone for a variety of reasons. Testosterone is crucial for the development and maturation of men, as well as plenty of other natural body functions. It is involved in growth, development, and male sexual characteristics.

    Sustanon injections are typically available in 250mg/ml doses, but your dose will depend on the severity of your testosterone depletion as well as other factors. This is usually determined by an experienced medical professional that can prescribe you the injections with all of your deciding factors in mind. In addition to Sustanon injections, there are plenty of other ways to increase the amount of testosterone in the body. Finding the right one for your unique situation is a process that should be explored by you in conjunction with your medical professional at Balance My Hormones.

    How do testosterone Sustanon injections work?

    If you are considering Sustanon injections as a solution to naturally low testosterone levels, you probably want to know more about how they really work. Testosterone is the most important hormone in the body of a male and it is essential for sperm production, healthy sex drive, achieving and maintaining an erection, and the function of the prostate gland. In addition to sexual function and maturation, testosterone is very important in other areas of the body as well. It helps to create healthy skin, encourage muscle growth, healthy kidney function, and more.

    Naturally, the testosterone levels in a man will fall with age. This is something that almost every male will experience. Another factor that can contribute to a drastic fall in testosterone production is testicle removal due to the treatment of testicular cancer or another severe condition. In addition, you might experience a fall in testosterone production due to hypogonadism or a similar testicular disease or pituitary gland

    Whether you are experiencing a natural decline in testosterone levels or going through a gender change, Sustanon injections have shown time and again that they are one of the most successful ways to increase the amount of testosterone in the body and stabilize hormone levels. Testosterone is important to basically every function in the body of a man, and if you want to avoid the side effects and negative life aspects that sometimes come along with low testosterone and imbalanced hormones, you should ask your medical professional about Sustanon injections.

    The symptoms of low testosterone are ones that almost nobody wants to deal with. Since testosterone is so crucial to the proper operation of the body, facing a situation without the right level of testosterone production can be very difficult for men. This can include many different side effects such as lowered sex drive, fatigue, infertility, erectile dysfunction, and depression.

    For all of these reasons, Sustanon injections are very popular. Sustanon injections work by increasing the level of testosterone in the body and helping you to overcome the symptoms that come along with low testosterone.

    How to administer Sustanon?

    As you can imagine, Sustanon is most commonly injected into the body with a needle. However, the method and technique of this injection are what is important. For maximum effectiveness, Sustanon is injected deep into the muscle tissue. This is usually occurring in the glutes, quads, or shoulders. Wherever it is injected in your body, it forms a reservoir of testosterone that is then released directly into the bloodstream over time to give you an evenly-distributed effect.


    Most Sustanon patients are given injections every 1 to 3 weeks as needed. When used as testosterone replacement therapy, it is important that you get on a consistent schedule so that you can more strongly feel the effects of the Sustanon

    and increased testosterone on your body. It is important to note that the frequency of your injections will depend on the type of treatment that you are receiving.

    Those who are undergoing a gender change will have a different frequency than those who are suffering from low testosterone.

    As stated earlier your healthcare professional will walk you through the process so that you feel comfortable injecting sustanon at home, the most important part of the process is cleaning your injection area with alcohol swabs prior to and after the injection has taken place to avoid any kind of infection.

    You will be taught how to draw your testosterone sustanon correctly from the ampule and ensure you are acurately measuring the correct dose.

    How to inject testosterone Sustanon?

    If you are curious about how to use testosterone sustanon, you should know that it is a very simple process. Testosterone sustanon is administered solely by injection, which is undoubtedly the most effective way to get testosterone in your bloodstream. With an injection, you can ensure that your testosterone takes a very fast effect and makes it easier for you to overcome the side effects of low testosterone.

    Your doctor or medical professional will show you the details, but you should know that testosterone sustanon is very easily given with just an injection.

    Two common places you can inject testosterone sustanon are illustrated below:

    What are the benefits of Sustanon?

    • Sustanon is one of many options of injectable testosterone in the UK, also known as Sustanon 250/ml, it is an oil-based injectable consisting of four different testosterone esters: testosterone propionate (30mg), testosterone phenylpropionate (60mg), testosterone isocaproate (60mg) and testosterone decanoate (100mg).
    • When used correctly (not as manufacturing guidelines of 250mg every 3 weeks) it produces effective and stable levels of testosterone in patients with great therapeutic outcomes.
    • One of most popular formulation of testosterone in UK, Europe, and Asia so is readily available
    • Acts quickly as contains shorter esters, propionate/phenylpropionate as well as esters like Decanoate with similar half life to Cypionate not to be confused with Undecanoate). Doctors in the USA actually have a mixture of propionate and Cypionate made for patients as to mimic a Sustanon blend as they prefer the effect on patients (USA never has Sustanon FDA approved)
    • Contrary to misinformation spread by some doctors that may lack experience using Sustanon, many patients report feeling better when using Sustanon correctly in comparison to single esters like Cypionate or Enanthate.
    • Contains Arachis oil and is an option for those that cannot tolerate other carrier oils such as castor oil or cottonseed oil.

    When to not use Sustanon

    While it is important to recognize that Sustanon has been the right solution for thousands of men, there are also circumstances in which Sustanon is not the best option. What solution is best for you will be a discussion for you and your doctor, but there are certain conditions and health states that are considered to be unsuitable for Sustanon injections that you may want to consider before you explore the possibility of Sustanon injections any further.

    In general, any person that has prostate cancer or breast cancer is not advised to use Sustanon injections as a way to increase testosterone in the body. These conditions are not considered suitable for this type of treatment and as such, it should be avoided for those that have these conditions.

    There are other conditions and health risks that don’t necessarily disqualify you from having Sustanon injections but make it more necessary to enlist more help from a medical professional and undergo frequent health check-ups throughout the process to ensure that you are still in good health. Here are some of those such conditions:

    • Kidney and liver disease
    • Diabetes
    • Migraines
    • Epilepsy
    • Hypertension
    • Heart disease
    • History of heart failure or heart attack
    • Cancer
    • Blood clots

    If you are unsure if you have a health condition that might interfere with the safety or effectiveness of your Sustanon injections, then it is recommended that you speak in-depth about the subject with a trusted medical professional that can guide you through the process of determining if you are the right candidate for Sustanon injections.

    Facts About Sustanon Injections



    Using any treatment requires a basic understanding of some background information to remain safe and educated when it comes to your medical treatment.

    Here are some facts that you might want to know about Sustanon injections before you choose them as a treatment for your testosterone levels.





    • The brand name for testosterone is referred to as Sustanon 250. If you hear this mentioned, you should know that it means that it is a testosterone injection.
    • Sustanon injections are usually administered at a frequency of 1-3 weeks. The frequency of your injections will likely depend on what is necessary by your medical professional.
    • While Sustanon injections can be helpful for regular men that are experiencing a natural decline in testosterone due to age, they are not recommended for athletes that compete in professional sports. The injections are banned in almost every professional sport and regulated by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
    • Another reason that Sustanon injections are not recommended for athletes is that improper use of the injections can actually lead to severe health risks and have the opposite of the intended effect.
    • If you have an allergy to peanuts or soy, then Sustanon injections are probably not the right option for you. These injections contain significant amounts of each of these and could cause an allergic reaction.
    • There is a risk for side effects when you undergo testosterone therapy or any kind of treatment that is designed to increase the amount of testosterone in your body. This can include things like increased acne, more body and facial hair, baldness, anxiety, depression, weight gain, and others. Consult with your doctor if you are experiencing any of these.
    • If you are using Sustanon injections to increase the amount of testosterone in your body, then you should know that you will likely require regular blood tests to monitor the level of testosterone in your body and ensure that you are being healthy. You will conduct these in accordance with your medical professional.
