Hi everyone! I have 24 years and I started trt 6 mouths ago and I felt awesome in many ways but I started to notice that I loose hair in the shower . I think was not so much but I freaked out . My doc gived me propecia to combat this side effect. Here is the funny thing . I took only 0.5 and I felt nothing that day . The next day , my dick was dead . My libido was gone too and my mood was off . I became very depressed and anxious and have brain fog . Today is day 5 and my penis is numb , and I don’t have any sexual thought. Worse than that is the fact that I am depressed and I don’t want to do anything at all . I don’t know what to do . I increased my trt dose but I don’t feel anything from it . I should have stayed away from this poison . Believe me , it’s not in my head , I masturbate the third day and I felt nothing 0% erection no matter how . Like my dick was not responding. Very sad … maybe I’m very sensible. Will i will ever return to normal ? I’m still like that by the way . Can you fucked up your life from 0.5mg ?
