Hey i took finasteride at a super low dose about 1.5 years ago because i was worried about sides. 0.25mg every 3 days. After about 2 weeks i felt my libido drop off but i read its just my body adjusting. I took it for 4 months then stopped cuz i couldnt keep my dick up during sex and it felt like my dick was shrinking. I had a high libido and good sex life before taking this but then i broke up with my girlfriend and am not sure if this is all in my head or if its real. My symptoms are it feels like my dick is less sensitive and im not as sexual feeling. Also feels like my balls dont hang as low as they used to and aren’t as big. Although now im hyper analyzing my dick and balls 24/7 which im sure doesnt help. I feel like i cant get a boner from thought or fantasizing anymore. I dont feel that jolt in my penis when i see a hot girl anymore. Once again I’m not sure if this is just mental because i am a high anxiety person to begin with. When i was on finasteride my morning wood went away completely but it has slowly returned but i dont get rock hard boners in the morning anymore ill just typically be half erect. Ive been off this shit for over a year. Here is my latest blood results which looks like both my lh and fsh are low but my testosterone seems normal? Is this a problem? If so how can i fix this? Im deathly scared i permanently ruined my endocrine system so please no horror stories about how i never should have touched this stuff, I’ve got massive anxiety over it…
Im a 31 year old male located in canada btw.
