I do believe it stopped any progression of hairloss or receeding hairline, but looking back at my past year I'm beginning to question its effect on my libido.
Dick works fine, definitely no ED, but I do feel less "drive" to actually have sex, if that makes sense. Just a general disinterest that I had been chalking up to being the result of a productive and more goal-focused lifestyle, but now I'm starting to wonder.
Going to see an endocrinologist and ask to get some bloodwork done... does anyone know what I should be asking to see in a blodowork test? DHT and Estradiol levels? Not sure what else.
Like I said, I just want to cover all my bases and make sure I'm not fucking myself by eliminating my DHT.

Been using Fin for years but wasn't using it consistently (everyday) since I first started using it when I was around 18 and for the past year or so. During the time in between I was just using it sparingly like 1-2 times per weeks as I thought I didn't need it.
I remember when I first started using it my sex drive was through the roof but over the years I think it may have decreased. Hard to tell if it's actually from using fin or because of the fact that I'm just getting older and when I first started using it I started going to the gym which may have also spiked up my testosterone levels.
Over the past year or so when I started to consistently use fin again I noticed my sex drive actually increase quite a bit. I think it may have to do with actively trying to improve my sex/dating life and fapping a lot less than I was in the years before (sex/dating life was non-existent before this time).
Interested to see the results if you actually go through with this. I would have thought that all you need to get measured/tested is your testosterone levels but I did a quick search on the internet and it was saying how some guys maintain sexual desire at relatively low testosterone levels. But like you said maybe your change in lifestyle (lower effort in dating/sex life) is causing this change.
Alternatively maybe you could try just using Minoxidil as a replacement.

I've been on 1mg finasteride for about a year now. It's a real bitch because if it's all placebo it's a shame to cut out the finasteride...
I don't "feel" any different, as if there are side effects, and I experience no ED, but I feel the "interest in sex" is decreased.
I think it might have affected me the same way, and I only used it for a couple of weeks awhile ago. Not sure how much is due to finasteride, and how much is due to other factors. Definitely worth doing a check up.
Keep us updated on your findings.
I've been on 1mg generic finasteride for about 10 months now. My libido and motivation to have sex is definitely lower, but I can't tell if that's from serious lack of sleep (I haven't had 8 hours sleep in about 9 months).
Then again, it's hard to know if we're psyching ourselves out and imagining symptoms. Libido is hard to measure.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
