Subcutaneous Testosterone injections, or Subq testosterone injections, are quickly gaining in popularity by physicians and patients as the easiest way to self administer testosterone treatment injections.
Physicians have preferred administering IM, or intramuscular injections, for a very long time because by injecting deeper into the muscle hits the blood stream easier and stays in your system longer. Physicians prefer injecting into the glute, or hip, for this reason. In fact, many physicians schedule injections once a month or twice a month and therefore need to inject intramuscularly. We know that an IM injection peaks your testosterone levels withing 18-24 hours and then sees that level gradually recede back to your standing level in 6-7 days. Unfortunately, with supplemental testosterone your body recognizes the additional amount and that week will slow down your natural production so that after 6 days you will have a lower testosterone level than you did if your physician never supplement your testosterone levels.
Subcutaneous testosterone injections, or subq testoserone injections, are growing in popularity for a number of reasons:
After years of testing physicians now understand that by injecting into the layer of fat will still reach your systems and effectively distribute testosterone into your system. Twice weekly subq injections will also maintain a consistently higher testosterone level by removing peaks and troughs created by weekly and bi-monthly IM injections.

Research shows that it takes on average 18 days to to schedule a physician appointment. The research also shows that there are 121 minutes of wasted time per physician office visit. This is from driving to and from the office, sitting in the waiting room next to sick people, sitting in the office and then spending 3-5 minutes with the nurse before maybe seeing the physician.
Many Physicians, and even the Low T Clinics, require patients to come in once a week for an IM injection. That’s because that is how they make money. They get paid every time you walk into their office.
Now that forward thinking providers are teaching their patients how to self administer testosterone injections we an take a look at the best way to do that and when to do that. IM makes sense for in office injections so the patient doesn’t need to come in twice per week. Subq offers an easier solution, less painful with a smaller gauge needle, less harmful to your muscle and less risk to your sciatic nerve.
