This is my first post here, so please excuse me if I do anything which goes against the propecia help guidelines.
Earlier in the year (late July) I took saw palmetto capsules (3 a day- 480mg in total) for about three weeks.
This was going ok to begin with, but then I began to notice testicle pain. Due to this, I stopped the treatment and went to see the doctor, and believing it was an infection, he prescribed some antibiotics to fight it. It is important to note that at this stage, it did notice that my penis was more often than not shrivelled up, and I associated this with the infection from the testicle pain.
Within around 9 days, this testicle pain was gone and I finished my course of antibiotics. Then, I noticed that I was not getting any morning erections, and my libido was constantly very low. This was accompanied with brain fog, and fatigue.
Then, by early October the sexual side effects began to dissipate. I was getting morning erections, and my penis was no longer shrivelled up.
I suppose the reason for creating this account, and making this post, is to ask how long it would take to recover. While my sexual side effects have improved greatly, I still have the brain fog and fatigue. This is a particular issue for me since I am entering my final year of college, and i would prefer deferring the year to recover, rather than finishing in a mediocre way.
I understand that recovery is different for everyone, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
