Understanding how the medicine we take affects our sexual health is important. Today I want to discuss propecia a medicine commonly used to prevent baldness. Baldness is caused by a potent male hormone called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. DHT is produced in the adrenal glands, hair follicles, testicles and prostate gland. It is derived from he male sex hormone, testosterone. Propecia blocks the enzyme that coverts testosterone to DHT, causing rapid decline in DHT concentration. The most frequently reported side effect of taking Propecia is it’s impact men’s sexual health. Although no clear causal links between Propecia use and sexual side effects have been established, finasteride suppresses the body’s level of DHT, which plays a major role in sexuality and sexual development, making the connection highly plausible.
A study completed by the FDA revealed a wide range of sexual side effects in otherwise healthy Propecia users ages 21 to 46. These problems persisted for an average of 40 months after the men ceased treatment.
The most common side effects associated with Propecia include decreased libido, erectile dysfunction and ejaculation disorder.
Adverse sexual events are most notable in younger men. Several side effects have been found to improve or completely resolve once Propecia treatment is stopped, while others may continue to affect the patient for several months or even years. In some cases, sexual function never returns to normal. Art by @queerrilla
