So i have been balding eversince i was 16 and recently i started nearing the midpoint between nw2 and 3 however its very well hidden by my hair style and since taking saw palmeto for a few months worked well for me last year i decided finaesteride cant be that bad and no way someone in top shape like myself would be affected by it and got it perscribed. 3 Days in i notice lowered libido and watery ejaculate but that could be the temporary sid effects ive heard abot, on the 12th day while i wa showering i noticed that my penis seemed more wrinkled and thinner than it usually was and when i tried to get an erection i couldnt only later i managed to do it trough porn and even then it went down if not touched for 3 seconds and decided im quitting fin for good. next day i got similar problems along with anxiety and paranoia and similar ed but the next day that being yesterday i got somewhat better i saw i got more circulation down there it was easier to get up and anxiety was almost gone now on the third day i seem to be mostly recoverd up here and down there except theres still a tiny bit of shrinkage but my libido seems a little higher than normal and my ability to get aroused by visual stimulus is in overdrive along with rock hard erections wich worries me a little because i keep hearing of people getting better after a few days and then crashing shortly after.
So what would you guys say should i tell my family what happened ? Cause i would rather not if possible but im also afraid of crashing and chemicaly castrating myself before realizingm my dream of reincarnating genghis khans empire and wrecking havoc on the modern world with my genes.
