I took just one pill of 1mg of Finpecia on a Friday night, that’s all it took to get me here. Immediately I found myself losing my libido and immediately masturbated to see how things were and to my surprise…watery ejacuation..I thought this was temporary..but next morning..i googled this stuff and that’s when things got worse…anxiety and depression..Brain fog to my surprise…Not able to concentrate well on my stuff…May be because of my frequent masturbation..to be frank I was a porn addict and a masturbation addict too…I can’t imagine this scenario in my life. After going through the propeciahelp forums I found out that masturbation only makes it worse. Sometimes if I quit masturbating for a day..i felt much better. Till now I ve been daily masturbation once a day since 3 weeks. Had mild testicle pain (very momentary I mean a few secs) but it all went away soon enough. So far I must say my ejacuate quantity increased and so did my sperm count but not completely. Im presently using ashwagandha arishta and triphala ras to help me in my recovery.....I need serious help regarding this issue..if possible a good advice…Im really confused and full of regret that I ever took that single pill in my life…Will I recover, Will I gain back my self..Please reply...Suggestions, questions, and advices will be highly appreciated…Thank You

You have a great chance of recovery since you only took 1 pill. It could take a few months till you feel %100 again though. I suggest you don't use anything, eat healthy, exercise and stop visiting this forum in the meanwhile.

Man keep eating healthy and rest a lot. Try and let your body heal. It may take a couple months for side effects to go away for some.

Take it easy dude. Panicking like this will only make you feel worse. Don't eat trash food (fast food, sodas, etc.) and do exercises that make you feel good. And don't visit this forum for a few months. You'll only feel worse if you obsess about this. Take it easy and let your body heal itself.

Ruled out sugar from my diet..but continuing dairy products like milk and curd. Im playing Badminton Everyday for 1-2 hrs..Hardcore.

Your problems are very mild, and you've been in this situation for less than 2 months, some of us here have full-on PFS for more than 10 years. Your chances of a timely recovery is very high since you only used it once, you just need to be patient. People who try drugs and supplements to cure themselves usually end up worse.

Nowadays there seems to be a trend of one time finasteride users with very mild symptoms who come here totally panicked and expecting an immediate solution. I think it's psychological for the majority of these people. In any case, there is no known cure for PFS, and this forum is about sharing ideas and experiences.

At this point seeing a doctor who knows about this condition would be a lot more helpful for you than spending your time here.

I am saying take it easy and relax because there is nothing proven we can offer you. Best thing to do is relax as much as possible and look after your health in every way possible. I wish I could offer you more.

I can tell you many have recovered so there is a good chance you will. Just do not do anything to make your sitation worse.

I don't know about ashwagandha so I can't comment on that, but I've never heard of a post ashwagandha syndrome :p . Get blood tests for calcium and vitamin D to see if you need to use those.
