Testosterone Suppositories

    I have read about testosterone propionate suppositories. It seems that they make them in Germany (40mg dose). I tried to find more about it on internet, but every time someone starts a thread about it on bodybuilding forums people get homophobic or start to make jokes about it. Since this is a gay forum I don't expect that.
    Also, rectal administration of drugs is more common in Europe than in America, and it seems that American men especially have the prejudice about it.

    So, testosterone propionate (and all other short esters) are easily absorbed when applied rectally. Also, this way of administration allows testosterone to bypass the liver, since blood from this part of the intestines doesn't flow through the liver. So, I'm sure these suppositories work.
    Now, the question is how much of it is really absorbed.
    Some people claim that absorption is about 50% of intramuscular. So, if one wants 50mg of testosterone every day in the blood, 100mg must be administered rectally. Also, some people say that oil based longer esters of testosterone (like cypionate and enanthate) have lower absorption rate, since rectum mucosa is made to absorb the water from feces, and not oils.
    Also, these "depot" testosterones wouldn't work as a depot anymore, since they are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream and metabolized quickly.
    So, one should apply suppositories everyday.
    I am a veterinarian, and I know that one doesn't need a suppository to apply the testosterone into the rectum. It can be done with a syringe and injectable solution of testosterone as well.

    Does anyone have some experience with this?
    Thanks!

    Not directly, but some time back I was doing some (literature search) research on STD treatments and came across some papers on penicillin/surfactant suppositories. It turns out that they are as effective as the huge buttock injections for treatment of... I think it was gonorrhea. However, some advisory board decided that the painful injections had a beneficial "deterrent" effect, while implying that the suppositories might be seen as a "reward" for risky behavior among gay men.

    So the needle it is.

    No thank you, I'll use it when I'm 80 and need a suppository. Maybe they should include some Dulcolax in it? icon_razz.gif

    I don't remember I offered it to you, so you don't have to thank me. icon_smile.gif

    I asked only for serious talk. I was hoping that I can talk about it at least to people who usually stick something much bigger in their asses on a regular base.

    I don't have an answer to your question. No experience nor even knowledge of test suppository. I live in Europe, but have never heard of it. Speaking for myself, I believe IM injections to be just fine.

    If anyone is reading this, I wanted to share my experience with testosterone suppositories. They have been a godsend for me and my performance. I have used both creams and injections and both did not work for me. After using a cream and then a gel, my testosterone levels were one quarter of optimal levels. Creams and gels are only so potent because the testosterone powder in the product would come out of the gel at high potencies. It was applied in different places on my body with only marginal benefit. I looked forward to learning the ropes of testosterone injections. I started with a single low dose of testosterone cypionate. It turned out I was the one out of 500 people or so that has an adverse reaction to injectable testosterone esters. I have most of the symptoms. A day and a half after the injection, I vomited my dinner and breakfast the next morning. Digestion was difficult for the next week. I had a total loss of energy and appetite and felt lousy overall for two weeks.

    My doctor works with a compounding pharmacist who suggested suppositories using bio-identical testosterone. The pharmacy makes a two month batch and sends it in a cooler with an ice pack. The suppositories are made out of fat solids and need to be refrigerated, like butter, lard or beef taloe. Three times a week, I lube up my middle and ring fingers to open up and relax my ass, slide the bullet like suppository past my anus and into my rectum, and push it beyond my second anal sphincter, where it is swallowed by my body. Here it can dissolve and the testosterone powder imbedded in the suppository can be absorbed by my colon.

    I started at the same dose as my gel and I felt noticeable improvements, although the test results were not much different. I was able to lift more weight at the gym, hitting new personal records; I had more energy and felt a lot better. I am now at 300 MG a week and feel even better than before. I get tested tomorrow and can’t wait to learn the test results on this higher dose. My doctor is concerned about moving too quickly to higher dosages because of the possibility of thicker blood and increased estrogen. I take Arimidex already and want to be sure the current dose matches the effects of the higher dose testosterone.

    Fortunately, my insurance picks up the cost of this, although they now require pre-approval to fill testosterone prescriptions. It is about 120 percent more than the cost of the injectable version, not including the cost of syringes, needles, and alcohol swabs. I haven’t traveled with my suppositories. The need for refrigeration can make it a hassle. Big pharma doesn’t like anything it can’t mass market. However, a great compounding pharmacist can make almost anything. In fact, I found my doctor through the pharmacy.

    I hope this has been of help.

    I have had experience with rectally administering medications with suppositories before. There are a lot of medications that can be administered with better absorption if not absorbed well when ingested and other routes are more inconvenient or uncomfortable.

    This is the first I've heard of testosterone though.

    I've been in premature andropause since my mid-20s because of illness. I've found even low dose testosterone makes me very aggressive though. So have been unable to medicate. Maybe I should give it a try again soon (been 3 years since last try).

    Those of you who are doing testosterone therapy is it for a diagnosed deficiency or just returning testosterone to optimal levels (but no deficient)?

    Is this some sort of weird fetish thread. icon_confused.gif

    I have a hard time believing that suppositories are more effective than injections.

    It does have its benefits, Import.

    Lang time ago, when dealing with chemo, the nausea was so bad I simply could not hold the pills down. Doctor gave me anti-nausea meds in suppository form. It was relief sent from heaven.

    I think the most stable blood levels are being obtained w testosterone propionate administered subcu twice weekly w a teeny weeny 27g needle on an insulin or TB syringe. Also bypasses the liver. For most guys 50mg or 0.25cc, twice weekly (Tues//Fri) seems to get those stable levels.

    I don't do the suppositories, but have been doing Testopel pellet implants in the butt for a couple of years.

    Relatively painless, these pellets are implanted in the butt muscle, and lasts about 6 months. Done by a certified urologist.

    Total T count went from 180 to 1100, and decreases with time.

    This is a blessing to all men with low T count

    (good side is regular erections!)
