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.
