Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. Finasteride has side effects on sexuality. It causes problem in erection of penis. However this side effect is temporary. There is an alternative of finasteride called as saw palmetto. It has similar control on hair fall with no side effects. I suggest you to stop finasteride and start with saw palmetto. Along with this also use minoxidil 5 % lotion for topical application. This combination will give you good relief. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
