Hi, I'm at 19 year old male. I have been taking a drug for Hair Loss now for almost 6 months called Propecia. I feel comfortable taking it and don't think I have had any side effects :) Recently I have noticed that I find it more difficult to achieve an erection to say a real life person!? Sorry to sound crude here! But if i'm watching porn I can get an erection really quite easy but I don't seem to get morning wood no were near as often as I use too. However, If i'm in the shower or something I can get a hard erection by just standing there soo I don't think i'm suffering from like bad ED? I can still achieve erections but they don't seem to be as hard? Is this because I masturbate to porn to often? Should I give it a break and masturbate without porn for a while? I've saw a lot of stuff on the internet about it! Also, whenever I see like a hot person on tv or out in the street or something I'm kind of thinking in my head "I should be getting hard now"? Do you think my problem is just anxiety as well? Thanks very much for your help everyone :) I know it's a strange question! I noticed like 2 weeks ago when I was relaxed and not thinking about it I got an erection easy and just by reading something on the internet I got hard lol! But my erections and sex drive seem to be inconsistent. I would really appreciate some help! Thank you :)
This med can cause sexual problems. So, I don't think it's anxiety I think it's the medication. It looks like you may have to make a decision about staying on this med or not. I'm really not sure if these side effects will go away once you quit taking it. I'll see what I can find out.
