Merck states that “Contact with the semen from a man being treated with PROPECIA is not a risk to the unborn child of a pregnant woman“. My question is: can the same rule be applied to those taking DUTASTERIDE, considering this is a higher potent DHT inhibitor? I take 0.5mg daily for the treatment of hair loss.
Probably not, but we don’t know. Dutasteride can also have fertility issues in the men who take this drug, but the proof is not available at this time. This is probably one of the many reasons that dutasteride is not approved for the treatment of hair loss by the FDA.
