Whats up guys,
I have been a long time lurker here, but never made an account till now. I’m going to share my experience with and off finisteride, my side-effects, recoveries, and ask for advice regarding reflex-hyperandrogenicity (upregulated androgens).
I was on FIN for 3 months, now been off for 12 months.
- erectile dysfunction
- ejaculation dysfunction
- testicular shrinkage
- fat gain
- muscle gain
- scalp sebum
- increased hair loss
So my side-effects have SLOWLY been getting better through various protocols (mainly including: diet, exercise, meditation, supplements).
So, I also experienced Relfex-Hyperandrogenicity. Which I believe is an up-regulation of androgen receptors. Before starting fin I shed maybe 5-10 hairs a day. After 2 months on FIN, I was shedding 200 hairs per day. After stopping FIN my shedding decreased to 50-100 hairs per day, but no where close where I was pre-fin. I’m starting to think my E2 levels are unbalanced, going to get them checked.
Also, here are my blood tests 3 months after I stopped FIN.
