But I searched on net and found that finax has side effects specially realted to sexual disorders .

Thanks for writing in.
It is true that Finax ( which contains Finasteride) causes sexual side effects like impotence, decreased libido, decreased volume of ejaculate and an ejaculation disorder. Importantly, the decreased libido can continue even when you discontinue the drug. So I would suggest that you speak with your physician and assess the risk benefit ratio. The decision to take the drug would entirely be yours.
Hope this helps.
