I am in my mid twenties and began taking propecia for hair loss; it killed my sex drive and made it impossible for me to get an erection. My doctor didn't inform me these side effects could be permanent; luckily I discontinued the drug before it was too late. My hair is not worth losing my sexual desire and ability for.

Comment:
I use this drug with rogaine to maximize the effect. I also skip the pill every other day to save on the cost. It's very expensive; however, I started using this after a hair transplant and it's worth the investment. After a hair transplant, it's good. I don't know about before because the hair follicles may already be dead. You can't grow leaves on a dead tree.
