I have taken fin for 7 months straight, 1/4 tablet each night , I too have noticed my sex drive has decreased since a year ago.
I am dating hot looking young girls and have trouble getting an erection or maintaining for a while.
The sensation is not like it was, it's as if my mind loves the look of my girls, however my dick is not interested.
I have never smoked,never taken any drugs of any kind, I am healthy, I am not overweight and I have not needed to work since the age of fifty, so I have 90% less stress than I had when I ran my business. I have been going to gym on average of 4 days a week for an hour so I keep fit and my eating habits are a lot better than when I was working.
Yes I am 53, however that should not have any effect.
I have stopped taking fin for around 2 weeks now, however things have not changed.
I return to my sexy girl friend at the end of January, so I hope there will be an improvement.
I pin point it down to Fin, this is the reason I joined this site to get a batter understanding of that horrid medicine.
I get my 2nd transplant end of January, however I will be keeping well away from Fin.

Have you experimented with erectile dysfunction medications like viagra, cialis, or levitra?

My older brother who is 62 years old and dating a hot 27 year old hispanic girl he met online recently got a strong dose RX of Viagra....100MG!....which I didn't even realize they made in such high doses....he reports sometimes he takes half and sometimes the entire dose and can go all night long with his new found pleasure.

Default Health first.

If after reading http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hormone_disruptor, you still believe that hormonal disruptors are save, then go to a psychologist.

In about than a month after taking Finasteride, I feel signs of depression kicking in. I do have a lot of stress lately so I cannot be 100% sure it is from Finasteride, but I never responded to stress with this much passivity, dark moods, and overall lack of energy. I lost morning erection and sex drive is slightly lower, but no erectile dysfunction so far. The depressive symptoms bother me the most.

My statement regarding recent attacks on Dr. Maral's clinic on this forum:
Quote:
I like how a little clinic in Turkey made all the big fish furious, like the Romans and the Gaul village Right now Turkey is the place to go for HT, there are dozens of small clinics and they have the know how. FUE essentially removed the requirement for a surgeon to perform any part of the procedure, as the anatomy of hair follicles is simple and the whole process is safe and harmless (unlike FUT, which is a different story) and it can be performed by an experienced technician. Of course, a surgeon must be there to distribute assignments and to manage and oversee the operation. That way, as more and more guys realize they don't have to decide between car and hair thanks to reasonable prices in Turkey, the bizarrely expensive Western clinics are losing $$ and will of course do anything to sabotage their opponents. I vouch for Dr. Maral and hope that all those vultures who pay people to troll on forums will either have to lower their prices or go out of business.

Made me sleepy and less aggressive, actually increased my sex drive, made my sperm watery, and did nothing for my hair so I stopped 2 years and nine months after being first recommended by HT#1 surgeon.

Also made my scalp more oily. Interestingly enough, HT#1 clinic stopped responding to my mails after I told them I wanted HT#2 and was stopping fin. I am 100% better off without this stuff.

After the initial side effects, I resumed taking it a few weeks later, and now I'm in month 7. I see the results and the sides are gone, so I don't see myself stopping it any time soon. If there is a risk I am willing to take it.

Thanks Matt Skiba, I 100% agree with you. I suffered a lot with Finasteride and the sides got worse after 6 months that I started to experience the first ED ever. It took my time to recover after quitting it however it really gave good result for my hair. Right now I'm using GNC standardized Saw Palmetto extract as an alternative which is at least better than nothing along with Minoxidil 5%. Thanks again for this useful thread. God bless you.
