Anything not listed in the above questions you’d like to share about your experience with Finasteride?
Tell us your story, in your own words, about your Finasteride usage and side effects experienced while on/off the drug.
My doctor wanted me to try it out. I took it for one day and then read something online and got scared. Lost penis fat and semem isn’t as much as it used to be. My mom calls me nuts and doesn’t believe me that one pill can do these side effects so I don’t know what to do about it. I’ve been off of it for three months and my erections aren’t as big as they used to be.
I don’t know if I’m overreating about this. Since I have been a lazy bum all summer and I read that the penis grith lost can be from fat below the stomach. Like I said the scale only says 160 so idk.
1.Anything I can do treat this?(Pills,methods,etc)
2.Is it really the pill or am I overreacting?
3.3 months without treating it too long?
4.Best foods to eat?
5.Should I be masturbating? I do it on the daily not sure if I should stop.
