This is Dr. Davidyes, testosterone can get washed out during hemodialysistestosterone injections also has a half life in your body as well.testosterone cypionate intramuscular injections has a half life of about 8 days so every 8 days, the amount of testosterone in your body will be cut in half.so it sounds like your testosterone levels are declining every week after injection.you might need an intramuscular injection every 2 weeks instead of every 3 weekslet me know if you have questions.
