    It is real in your mind.

      I'm on finasteride, been on it for a few weeks, and I really want to believe that the people who think they're still having symptoms after quitting are just imagining it, but I'm having trouble knowing what to believe. They at least claim to have some evidence for what's going on, but I've also seen rebuttals saying that every measurable thing goes back to normal in a few months after cessation and that there's no mechanical explanation for how someone could have persistent ED.

    I've been taking it for years now. I had some loss of libido in the first month but now I'm still constantly horny and my boners are bigger and harder than ever. Obviously the moment your dick stops working stop taking it, but that's not me. Now if you'll excuse me I have an onahole to fuck.

        I wouldn't know. I don't when "too late" is. I take 1mg a day and I'm horny as fuck all the time and not even close to ED. I assume people just get ED naturally since many things can cause it but they just blame the fin they've been taking.

        They're full of shit, no studies demonstrate the issue. It's just when people start to bald they're getting older and so sex drive is likely decreasing anyway.

    Just don’t take this poison. Get hair transplant or hairsystem. So many alternatives where you don’t risk everything

      I am getting a hair transplant, but there's a limited amount of donor hair. Transplants can only do so much if you go completely bald.
      >this poison
      evidence to support this?

      That's my guess too. It's just a bit scary to think permanent damage is a possibility.

      If you get symptoms just stop taking it and they will go away. You are more likely to have symptoms if you have low T.

        not exactly. The transplanted hair is permanent (or close, a handful of hairs might fall out but not significant), it's the natural hair that will continue to fall out without finasteride which will lead to the hair transplant looking worse (because the hair transplant is done with the expectation that you still have some natural hair left)

          also interesting to note is that a decent doctor knows this and will plan a transplant assuming that you won't take any medication. the way they do this is by ensuring that some of the follicles are implanted even a bit back into the hairline. gives you a bit of extra time

            yep, the place I'm going to, they showed me their "plan" for using all the ~6000 donor follicles I have such that even if I go completely bald, I'll have a pretty full front, and enough hair to mostly cover my scalp. They're only going to do ~2500 follicles for my first surgery, then in 10-15 years if things get worse they do more. I might put some pressure on them to use 3000 to reduce the likelihood I need more surgeries, but they charge by the follicle not by the operation so in terms of price, it doesn't really matter whether they do it all at once or in separate sessions, and apparently because of time they can only do about 3000 follicles in a single session.

            your donor hair will not be enough to cover a full nw6
            thats the whole problem
            look at fucking rooney you would think he had a decent enough doctor
            if you have a hair transplant you better take your fin or else just buzz it off at this point

    Been taking fin for a few months now.
    Was pretty worried about the sides tbh but most studies indicated any ED shit was either psychological, or disappeared after someone stopped taking it (maybe the chemical effect was tied to a psychological aspect?)

    Anyways, no change in horniness for me. Still want to have more sex than my gf can keep up with, so I just tug one out every now and then.

    Also, fin alone doesn't usually regrow hair like in OP image. Some have luck with fin/min/dermarolling or other random shit like saw palmetto.

    I am convinced finasteride/minoxidil caused me to develop some strange dry cracked skin condition. A few months into use my skin got super dry especially around mucous membranes like my lips and I started getting these raised red patches of dry skin on my arms.

      There are some people talking about minoxidil causing skin aging. You can find plenty of people on leddit with "reports".

      From what I've read, it interacts with similar things studied in skin aging, but via a mechanism which doesn't make sense to have the effect that pseudobrains are claiming.

      There may be a link, but haven't read a convincing one yet. Keeping an open mind.

      I'm not insecure. I have been shaving my head for 5 years and feel fine. However, dating as a bald man in his 20s is not easy. It's a dealbreaker for a lot of attractive women.

    id say the people having post finasteride syndrome
    probably would have had ED anyway
    i saw a documentation about it on my local tv and all the guys complaining were fat and old
    two factors that really dont help with ED
    and the on youngs in forum i always hear i can get hard than and than but not with sex
    bitch you just have low confidence and anxiety

    broadly speaking most people are probably fine while taking fin but you have to test it out

    i've been on finasteride coming up a year

    >i've definetly had some breast tissue development, though it's not noticeable and i'm still lean. If i wear certain fabric tshirt it irritates my nipples i get a small amount of discharge sometimes also.
    >In the last few months my semen started to become watery and the volume has decreased about 50%, getting the thick creamy ropes i used to get before fin isn't possible atm no matter how long i wait between fapping.
    >my penis still gets as hard as it once did, but before fin i used to be able to summon an erect penis in public just by thinking about what turns me on, i can't do that anymore. But when i stimulate it it gets hard easily.
    >there has also been some testicular and penile atrophy, though not a huge amount, but it took me from average to below average...

    as for my hair... My left temple continues to recede and my right temple is also receding though at a slower pace. I do belive finasteride slowed down the hairloss though.

    the penis stuff kicked in about 6 months in, the gyno developed almost linearly. i started taking it at 18.

    Hair loss is correlated with anxiety and depression.

    You were having so little sex when you were bald/ing you can't remember ED being an issue. You get your hair back and it's suddenly a problem

      Bro, I’ve been on it for over a year and it’s been nothing but positive for me. Ignore the doomers and give it a try for 6 months. If you notice any sides (unlikely), studies show that they subside completely once you stop taking it. There’s virtually no risk.
