Hi doctor how are you, Thanks for your time. I have been using propecia almost 5 1/2 months and so far nothing has been happening positive way and there is some thinning .i have pattern 2 to 3 going for 3 soon. I am 28 years old. I have been seening this beatufil girl almost 3 months we are so into each other and last night we been together firt time but i had a major erection problem.Everything went so bad… i cant explain wierd feeling. This never happened in my life. It did feel really bad.Aspecial because it happened with her but i was wondering if i stop taking propecia this kind of side effect will be gone and how long after stopping the medication i can expect to get back to normal if it is caused by propecia. I know you cant have all the answer but according to your knowledge, could you suggest something else to keep up love life and control hair receding problem. Sincerly.
A poor erection may come from many causes. If you stop taking Propecia, the drug will be out of your system in just a day or two. If there is a relationship between this drug and your erectile problem, then it should disappear within a week. More men get an increased sex drive than a decreased sex drive. However, in your case it does not sound like you are having a sex drive problem, which is more frequently an observation with Propecia than an erection problem is. First, stress is probably the single most important cause of erectile problems in young men. Just the anxiety of performing well, in many men, can make erections a problem. In older men, what we call erectile dysfunction, is more common. This is easy to understand when you think back on your 16 year old penis, which may have had spontaneous erections as many as 5-20 times an hour. No man in his 20’s experiences that type of problem and as you age, your penis function changes and you may experience perfomance challenging symptoms. I would say that 20% of men in the 20’s, 30% in their 30’s, 40% in their 40’s and 50% or more above the age of 50 would complain about their penis function. Therefore, I would conclude that it is not a disease, but a fact of life; as the male penis ages, so does the man’s production of male horomones that drive it and the blood vessels that make the erection a reality. For most of the men without anxiety problems, those who take medications that impact penis or libido function, those with diabetes, or those with vascular disease, drugs that enhance performance of the penis are useful.
The initial benefits of Propecia usually take between 8-12 months, so it is important to be patient.
