How Androgenic Is Exemestane?


This study:

Exemestane’s 17-hydroxylated metabolite exerts biological effects as an androgen. - PubMed - NCBI

finds that “Exemestane exerts biological effects as an androgen”. Well, actually one of its metabolites does.

Is that to say that it will exert androgenic activities in scalp, prostate, skin tissues and have masculinilization effects like DHT would?

Is the androgenic activity of 25mg Exemestane comparable to that of 25mg of Proviron? Or more? Or less?


Less. I suppose that is also how it drops SHBG as well.


That’s what I thought exactly!


if you use too much of it you will feel like there is 0 androgens in your body… no estrogen will castrate you

A single dose of 25mg makes me feel horny as hell.

But joints hurt a few days after


be careful with it… overdoing an AI will send you in the world of pain… if your joints hurt stop it at least for a few weeks before trying it again


Can it cause permanent joint damage, or is the joint just hurting as there is less water for “cushion”?
