Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes. 
It could be argued that aromatization is a non-issue, as an . could always be employed to counter estrogen conversion. This is true, but I believe there is a simpler way to go about it. In my opinion, the ideal pre-contest MPD cycle should consist of a low dose of testosterone propionate (150-200 mg/week), as at least some estrogen is needed to maintain a healthy looking skin tone. This should be combined with 2-3 other anabolics; preferably 1-2 oral anabolics and 1-2 injectables anabolics. Some good examples of orals include: Anavar, Epistane, and Turinabol. As for injectables, most people usually find the following drugs to be compatible: Primo, Boldenone, and Dihydroboldenone (1-testosterone).
