As for the flip side of testosterone cypionate, there is not much of a difference when it is compared to all other kinds of testosterone steroids . Some of these effects are simple and can be managed but others are long term effects that come with long term use in large doses. Most of these are permanent. Acne and hair loss can be managed by the cessation of the usage of testosterone cypionate but gynecomastia cannot. The presence of estrogen in the body after aromatization will lead to the development of breasts in men, which is not a pleasant sign.

If a young man's low testosterone is a problem for a couple trying to get pregnant , gonadotropin injections may be an option in some cases. These are hormones that signal the body to produce more testosterone. This may increase the sperm count. Hedges also describes implantable testosterone pellets, a relatively new form of treatment in which several pellets are placed under the skin of the buttocks, where they release testosterone over the course of about three to four months. Injections and nasal gels may be other options for some men.
