PFS Patient (male)

I’m afraid…I will live the rest of my life in celibacy.

Hello: I used finasteride for some years, and while I eventually did notice smaller libido, I was assured it would return to normal if I stopped using it. So I continued till I one day realized my libido was practically gone, and I had to face the reality. Since I’m single, I had no partner that could tell me what was happening, so it continued longer than it normally would. Hair or not, there would be no idea to trying to be more attractive with more hair if there was no libido. So I stopped using it, and that was more than a year ago. And everything still feels dead. […] I’m afraid it has affected me permanently, and I will live the rest of my life in celibacy. Obviously I can also forget to ever find a girlfriend if nothing changes, and therefore no children or family.
