Shots: Testosterone (t) injections are one of least expensive means of boosting one's testosterone level. Oil-based t cypionate & t enanthate are best given in muscle (buttocks or thighs) at least weekly to minimize ups & downs since half-life of this version is 7-10 days. If you get a shot every 2-4 weeks, your peak levels will be much higher than necessary & your trough (lowest) level will be too low.
