Hair Loss Medications Affect Men’s Sexual Health In The Long Run

There are a lot of advantages of using only natural treatments for hair loss, and here’s one more very serious reason for you to choose natural solutions for hair loss like essential oils, medicinal herbs or Provillus, which has only natural ingredients. Recent studies have revealed that negative side effects of using many hair loss medications may last not only when you are using the medications, but also they tend to persist when the medications are discontinued.

According to the findings of a research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, using such hair loss medications as Propecia, Proscar, and Avodart may be linked to prolonged negative side effects like loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, as well as depression and psychological disorders linked to these problems. It is connected with such an ingredient of these medications as 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors, which block the action of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone which regulates male hormone actions and is very potent.

During the research, one of the study leaders, Abdulmaged M. Traish, PhD, a professor of biochemistry at the Boston University School of Medicine, commented on the experiments and analysis efforts as the following: “We don’t really understand why, but the symptoms remain persistent or irreversible and even if they get off the drug. They no longer regain what they had before. Biologically, something gets shut off and gets shut off once and for all.”

Several other studies point out that using hair loss medications like Propecia can possibly lower the risks of prostate cancer, but this benefit is likely to be compensated with such negative effects as loss of sexual drive, erectile dysfunction, lowered semen production and even infertility. But the worst thing is: these side effects seem to be persistent and they may not stop even when you stop taking a medication like that. Therefore, men should be careful and consider all possible pros and cons of every single hair loss treatments option prior to making a decision which one to choose.
