I started with Proscar 1mg/day early 2006 to combat my hair loss along with growth stimulants, as minoxidil solutions - rogaine/Regine.
At that point, I was 20 years old and ready to fight off this plague that had bothered most of the my male relatives.
I took my precautions, went to the doctor, had his advice on the matter - he didn’t want to prescribe this drug to a fairly young and well hormone balanced male.
My preparations was complete, I was a frequent poster at a big hair loss forum, we all share our experiences on different boards right?
This time around I cared much about my genetic hair loss so I spent alot of time around there. (I still do, in hope for a cure)
Meds are fine I heard, if you get sides, fight through it… It will eventually get better, I thought.
Let’s just say I understand my doctor very well this day…
3 months into Propecia my life was literally turn upside down, my dick was practically limp and flaccid all day, and the worst part was I didn’t really care for it, since my sex drive more or less had ceased to exist.
The ejaculations was all watery and there was no pleasure in it.
I could not focus in school, my brain was all out of focus.
Had trouble sleeping at night, didn’t eat much either…
Experienced my first real period of depression along with anxiety, everything felt like a challenge I couldn’t deal with simple things in life such as communication with strangers.
Stuttering/stammering also became a reality for me.
I literally felt like a child, my balls was gone(no guts) and was afraid of everything.
Developed gynecomastia over this period, yes bitch tits.
Never felt so broken before.
Now, 3 years later I can’t say I’m all recovered, but the poison is no longer in my veins.
I guess my dick is ok, morning woods are absent along with spontanous erections, it can be summoned upon need tho - weaker than before ofcourse.
Still feel anxiety, but not nearly as strong as before. The depression is gone. Brain fog gone.
Stacking up cash for surgery.
