sup guys, just did the roman.com thing talk to a doctor for a few secs, upload some pics and boom 1mg finasteride pills at my door. like a lot of others it seems i only took 1 pill.
at first, really only noticed a ache in my ass. then later that day i noticed wasn’t getting much response from my penis. then the muscle aches, some twitching, joint ache and probably the worst of all the headache that made it worse when i moved my eyes in any direction. pretty impressive stuff for just 1 pill. sent the doc a message and of course it must be something else causing it hah, and any sexual side effects should resolve in a week or 2.
day 1 off the pill, i noticed a slight improvement in all areas, i also took a AI arimdex to lower estrogen that i have on hand, since a lot of the symptoms remind me of high estrogen. however ejaculation felt pretty weak.
day 2 and seemed to be more slight improvement, had some erections and stuff but they def weren’t as strong. the eye headache thing was still bothering me. slept as much as possible. just left it alone.
day 3 perhaps a little more improvement, the anal ache is still there, and so is the eye headache thing. ejaculation this time seemed even weaker. this has me pretty worried. about 12 years ago i had this weird issue where my left leg went numb, did a bunch of tests never solved it and eventually it went away. boom it’s back. very weird. it’s mind blowing that a single pill can have this effect.
i know a lot here say to not masturbate, but since the consensus is that a healthy prostate would be working and doing it’s job, and also working those specific muscles seems like a good idea. the weak ejaculation thing really reminds me if you’ve ever had surgery, and it’s difficult to go to the bathroom afterwords because the anesthesia is still in your system. i’m not going to every day, but every few days. i also have a lot of supplements already here, so i’ll load up on those as well. and hit the gym tomorrow. that’s about all i can do. my 6 month endo appointment is in a few weeks, so i’ll do all the blood work then.
i know it’s still very early days for me, but just some encouragement or words of wisdom from anyone would go a long way right now.
