Agovirin (Testosterone Propionate)

Agovirin is a testosterone (sex hormone) inducing drug. It is mainly used for androgen replacement therapy in males, hypogonadism (reduced testosterone growth), and delayed puberty. While in females, it plays a role in treating inoperable breast cancer, low sexual desire, and menopausal issues.

Agovirin is primarily an androgen anabolic steroid (ASS) drug. It is taken as an intramuscular injection, usually in the form of an oil solution. Formerly, testosterone propionate was also available in 30mg to 50mg aqueous suspension. Whereas testosterone propionate was used earlier in buccal tablet form as well. [1]
