Will Dutasteride will shrink your prostate even if it’s NOT enlarged? Will it shrink a normal-sized prostate? If not, why not? I’m taking it for MPB, and as far as I’m aware, I have a normal-sized prostate… but I’m gay, and prostate stimulation is an important part of the pleasure of gay sex. So if Dutasteride does indeed shrink normal-sized prostates, you can see why I might be concerned. It wouldn’t stop me taking it, but I would like to know.
Dutasteride was developed to treat or often shrink the prostate when it is enlarged from prostatic hypertrophy–a problem in men over 50. I doubt it will have an effect on a normal size prostate.
