Since testosterone is the primary male androgen, we can also expect that the development of androgenic side effects. His expression is largely due to the speed at which the body converts testosterone into DHT. This substance is a metabolite of testosterone, which is responsible for development of certain androgenic effects that are associated with the use of testosterone cypionate. These include: increased secretion of sebum, acne, hair growth on the body and face, as well as male pattern baldness.
Hair loss is not expressed at all in all. Worrying about what should first those who have a genetic predisposition (the case of baldness in the family).
