Hair Growth Products and Sexual Dysfunction

Hair Growth Products and Sexual Dysfunction

How are they Related?

Hair Growth Products and Sexual Dysfunction - Studies by top centres like SHIFT Hair Transplant have shown that 50% of the male population tends to lose hair by the age of 50. Naturally, many of them look for hair growth products that can help them reverse their hair loss problems and make them as youthful and handsome as before. There are 2 famous types of hair growth drugs on the market. One type reduces DHT production while the other one nitrifies the hair follicles again from the bloodstream. However, both of these activities on the entire body and not only on the parts where they are required. Apart from other side effects, men report of negative sexual side effects.


It is a common drug that is used for combating hair loss problems. This medicine, known on the market by brand names like Proscar and Propecia, works especially by blocking the action of androgens at the receptor areas. It is administered orally and is designed to function like an androgen antagonist. It inhibits the action of the enzyme type II 5-alpha-reductase that has been scientifically proven to be able to transform testosterone, the male hormone, into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) – which is a stronger androgen hormone. Although Finasteride happens to be one of the most popular hair loss drugs on the market, many men have reported of sexual problems after its intake. Some of the common side effects include reduced decreased sex drive, pains, lowered sperm count, unusual ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. Hair transplant in Turkey is a much safer treatment.


It is known by brand names like Avodart. Men who are exposed to this drug, and even medications like Finasteride, for a prolonged duration, are at more risk of suffering from persistent erectile dysfunction as compared to people with reduced exposure, as mentioned by researchers associated with the North-western University in the US and top hair restoration centres such as SHIFT Hair Transplant. Persistent erectile dysfunction lasts even after the stoppage of these drugs. In a few cases, the effects can be felt after months or even years. Drugs such as Datastore and Finasteride block the male hormone testosterone. These obstruct testosterone conversion to a more active type called 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone. Frequent urination and dizziness are some other problems of non-sexual nature that men commonly suffer from due to the use of these medications. With hair transplant in Turkey, these problems are not experienced by men.
