For me it wasn’t just weaker and less frequent erections. It was getting so I was rarely interested in getting off. Sometimes I never reached orgasm during sex, and even with death-grip masturbation it got to be very hard to come. Have you experienced anything like that?
I’ve been off Propecia for four weeks now, and I’m pretty much back to normal. In fact, last night I had my first two-orgasm sex romp in nine years! (I was on Propecia for about 15 months.) I was very happy about that… it would have been unthinkable not too long ago. Morning wood is occasional, probably normal frequency for my age (32 years), and a good deal more frequent than when I was taking Propecia. I’m glad I went off it for sure.
I sort of have over the past few days. Last month was opposite though. I would only get almost rock hard right before I orgasmed, but it didn’t take me long to reach that point. Lately my erection has been consistent at about 50% or so when I’m masturbating, and it’s taking longer to reach climax. I feel over the past few days my libido has really went down. I’ve been on Propecia for 2.5 years now. I started right before I turned 22.
When I wake up in the morning, I can mentally work my way into an erection, but it will only stay up without manual stimulation for roughly a minute or less. I noticed problems right when I first started taking the pill, but it wasn’t bad enough for me to stop at that time. I’m realizing now that it was a gradual decline. I think it really started taking a turn for the worse over the past 6 months or so. As for now, I’m done with Propecia. I spent the evening reading horror stories online, but I have a positive attitude, so I think my side effects will leave soon.
