A meta-analysis evaluated the safety of metformin, OCPs, and antiandrogens

Since a part of original research by the author already published12 the author has already established the suppression of spermatogenesis by bicalutamide (an antiandrogen

Luckily, research suggests that spearmint tea has similar antiandrogen
properties, which could help reduce acne and hormone imbalances in women.
Interestingly, when prostate cancer cells are subjected to antiandrogen
treatment, IGF1 is no longer able to activate the AR, suggesting a direct interaction between these proteins (29).
Because testosterone is required for healthy bone metabolism, the antiandrogen
medications used in hormonal treatment can cause osteoporosis.
drugs lower prostate-spesific antigen (PSA) levels in hirsute subjects: evidence that serum PSA is a marker of androgen action in women.
FLU per se did not alter PSA release but co-incubation of FLU with either DHT or TC reversed the stimulation of PSA secretion by the androgen or the extract (Fig.
43) Once the hormone profile is developed clinicians determine future antiandrogen
treatments, which are accomplished through the use of chemicals that actively block hormone receptors (typically testosterone) in the brain.
