Brief Answer:
Yes you can plan kids; no reduction in fertility

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mr. XXXXXXX and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help.

Tablet finax (with the active ingredient finasteride) does have a few temporary side effects relating to sexual performance, but please be informed that these are temporary and wear off as soon as the drug is discontinued.

Side effects can include a drop in libido (urge to want to have sexual intercourse) and erectile dysfunction (not being able to attain an erection despite sufficient stimulation). But both these side effects may be present (although not seen in all patients) only during the course of the therapy, and usually subside as soon as the drug is discontinued.

This means that they will not reduce your level of male fertility and you can surely start planning to have children a after discontinuation of these medications.

I hope you find my response helpful and informative. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you.

Best wishes.

Brief Answer:
I would love to help you with that sir

Detailed Answer:
Hello once again sir.

Yes sir, it is safe to take these medications for 3 months sir. In fact it should be quite beneficial.

As for the instructions of use of mintop, you need to use the solution on your scalp twice a day (with a 12 hours gap in between) and massage the solution after applying to a dry and clean scalp.

I hope this makes things more clear for you sir. Please do not hesitate to write to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you.

Best of luck
