Thanks man.

No joke.. Think twice about taking it.. It works, but it has a long term cost.


Alarmist talk.

I’ve been on the drug for many years (7 or 8) and I get semi-erect with the slightest thought about sex (and I’m 56 years old). My libido and ability to get erections has not diminished at all.

It does not have a negative effect on everyone. If you want to try it, do so. If you have side effects you can always quit.

Thanks West.

I’ll talk to my Dermatologist next week to get a prescription.

As a matter of fact in our last appointment he recommended it to me.

Are you sure some you guys aren’t suffering from alopecia? Because you might accidently mistake that for permanent hair loss.

I start losing some hair when I was in mid 20’s, but since I had alot of hair I didn’t really care when I was around 28 I start getting worried. I looked around, searched the net, but in the end I did nothing When I was 30, I kindof got depressed because of hair loss. Thinning on top and noticeable at temples. I considered HT for the first time, I even when so far and set an appointment. Instead of HT I did nothing…again, well not nothing but I bought Rogain and Propecia. Rogain was the original stuff Propecia was generic. After almost a year using both on and off, I observed some improvements. In the mean time I bought the real Propecia made by Merk. That was a shock.. I would take propecia and have some sort of pain in the test region. That was the real stuff though, and I read that that kind of pain could be one of the side effects. I completely stopped taking propecia, it seemed like Rogain did all the work. However after having some success I stopped Rogain too. After half a year when I had a hair cut, I was shocked seeing how much hair I lost. Then I decided to shave my head completely, have a taste of what’s to come :) . Around that time I found some things on the internet ( I don’t remember the link, but it was from TP forum). This old guy claiming you have to do some exercises, exercise your scalp muscles. Also someone here at TP said he thinks we all should brush our hair more often, because it may be beneficial.
So I started doing both, brush my hair each morning 50 times (just because I get bored brushing my hair and had to do something else, so I was counting, and eventually I settled for this number for no particular reason), also trying to exercise scalp muscles. Don’t ask me about these moves. It’s nothing special and I don’t think a particular move would be more beneficial than another. I kept doing them almost every day (the brushing is daily), and added some Rogain eventually in the mix. I don’t buy the real Rogain anymore but the similar product made by CVS, which is cheaper and works the same as the original.
I use rogain only for temples and every timed I used it I saw re-growth of my hair only in that region.
In the mean time after shaving I stopped caring about my hair - I let it get longer again and did the above things. Recently maybe a month ago I had another hair cut, and I was extremely surprised and very happy to see a huge improvement in my hair..
Now I can let girls again brush my hair with their hands :) and I don’t care about wind and stuff :)

The End !


Goal: more consistency, some self-confidence from this area

Stats: BPEL: ?

I’m in my 20’s now and my hair has been falling/thinning sense I was around 17 years old. I haven’t taken any Propecia with the fear of ED, but from my search on the web I have found out that Saw Palmetto extract is a good Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) inhibitor with out the ED side effects. DHT is the cause of male pattern baldness. I have been taking Saw Palmetto for 3 months and have seen a good improvement in that my hair has stopped falling as much and the thinned hair is getting some volume again. Hope this was helpful.

Well, I’ve been using proscar for about 2 and a half months. And here are my experiences.

- I feel like my hair is a bit thicker, but that wouldn’t really make sense, since hair doesn’t grow that fast. So at the very least, it’s definitely not getting thinner.

- I think my libido is reduced a little bit, but I’m not sure. I’ve never experienced decreased libido so I don’t know whether I am or not. I’m probably not, It could be more the stage I’m at in my relationship. Anyway, point is, not a big deal here.

- Takes me a little bit longer than usual to get a full hard-on, but no real issue there either.

- Sometimes can have less semen, and can be more watery, depends on the time of day, or how long ago I took the fin. But I don’t really care about that anyway, my semen always dribble out anyway lol.

- My MAIN concern, and the reason I’m making this post, is that I seem to be cumming quicker during sex!! I HATE this! I don’t know what’s to blame, but me and my girlfriend have been together for over a year now and this has never been a problem. I mean, sometimes in the past I have been a bit quicker than we’d like, but not always. THESE days, it’s actually an issue. I’m cumming quicker every time. To the point where I’m embarrassed about it and we had a talk about it last night. I actually feel like a pre-mature ejaculator now. I hate it.

Anyway, I don’t know whether this can be attributed to the finasteride or not. I haven’t read any cases about it. Does anybody have any answers for me? I need to fix this.

Now: (August 20 2007) 6.6" BPEL x 4.81" EG. Half way towards my goal! | Current Stats

Short term goal: (3-4 months) 6.8" BPEL, 5.0" EG.. Long term goal (1+ yr): 7.5" BPEL, 5.5" EG.

Hey man I am really sorry to hear about this.

I have read somewhere that continuous use of Finaseride will make those effects disappear. You could give it a try for one more month and if it does not get better just discontinue the drug. Apparently once you stop everything gets back to normal but then no time frame is mentioned.

I know it is a delicate subject but I think you should talk to your doctor and probably have a testosterone check.

Worst case scenario if none of that works just buzz it. Then no one will know you’re losing hair because you’ll have buzzed it off. I buzz my head cuz I like the clean look of it and its nice because it can’t get pulled on during training which is a plus.

I think that a lot of you missed out on what Prodigal Son wrote on page one. I read that same article, and they are so close to solving male and female baldness/thinning, its nuts. I’m sure that they’ll mark the shit up on it and make billions… but you know what? I’d pay.

Dude, I’m in the same position as you. I’m 20 and I just started Proscar cut into 1/4’s. I already have exactly the same effects as you.

Hello.

I was searching the net and found this article. It says that you could still reap the same effect with lower dosage of Finasteride.

Nick how’s your problem is it still there?

It is there a bit, but I’m not sure anymore if it’s related to finasteride.

Hmm, 3.5 or so months in, and I think my EQ is decreasing.

My erection last night with my girlfriend seemed hard on the inside but soft on the outside. Or something. This has happened a few times since taking proscar. I’m starting to see a trend, and am not happy about it. :(

It made sex last night really crap, not mostly because of my dick, and not because of her, but purely because of my mental. I kept getting in my own head too much, I was too “aware” of myself, and kept thinking about whether or not I was satisfying her, kept worrying about my dick quality, kept worrying about not lasting, couldn’t get comfortable, and generally wasn’t enjoying it like I should’ve.

I am becoming more convinced that the poor EQ last night had something to do with with the finasteride, though still not 100% convinced.

If the problem happens a few more times, then I think I can safely blame it on the proscar, as EQ has never been a problem for me before.

It’s a damn shame, because now I feel like I have to choose between thinning hair or worse sex. :( Maybe I should start doing PE exercises again to combat the EQ.

Zinc, for hair and semen.
