I started finasteride about one year ago (1mg finasteride daily + topical minoxidil). It’s worked pretty well with minimal to no sides.
I had a previous stint w/ fin a couple years ago so I was mentally prepared for the testicular pain that hits you in the first few weeks when i re-upped, but I don’t rly remember it even happening when I started on Keeps though.
However about a week ago I started feeling sharp jolts pain in my nuts (more specifically general scrotum / maybe epididymus?) after I’d by lying down about to get up or just at random times throughout the day. Also has kind of come to feel like I have some tension down there like someone’s got a vice grip on my scrot basically all the time (maybe like a 2 or 3/10 in terms of being noticeable or painful). The jolts are more like a 7 and sometimes even make me flinch once or twice a day.
Pain in the testicles could be from the drug finasteride or it could be from other causes that are anatomic in nature. See your family doctor for an examination.
