17) Tell us your story, in your own words, about your Finasteride usage and side effects experienced while on/off the drug.

I started taking finasteride for hair loss on August 2016. I hadn't experienced any symptoms until a few days ago (12/20/16). I got in my bed with this beautiful girl but was not able to get an erection on the first try. On the second try I got hard but nowhere near what I normally am (time and hardness). I tried again with the same girl on two occasions and failed to get hard at all. Before her, I had sex ~3 weeks ago, no signs of side effects, under the influence of alcohol and everything went smoothly.

I post because I am horribly worried these side effects will be permanent. Advice?

You've only stopped recently. Hopefully symptoms will disappear after a while
