Erectile dysfunction (ED) is sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection during sexual intercourse.
An erection is the hydraulic effect of blood entering and being retained in sponge-like bodies within the penis. ED is also the result of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, neurological problems, hormonal insufficiencies, and drug side effects, such as Propecia. Even if you stop taking Propecia for male pattern baldness, men have continued to have erectile dysfunction.
Other Propecia sexual side effects include:
▪ Ejaculation problems
▪ Painful testicles
▪ Male breast cancer
▪ Breast tenderness, nipple discharge, and enlargement
Other nonsexual side effects of Propecia are depression and allergic reactions such as itching, rash, hives, and swelling of the lips and face.
Erectile dysfunction happens when an erection is difficult to produce. There are various circulatory causes, including alteration of the voltage-gated potassium channel, as in arsenic poisoning from drinking water.
Psychological impotence is where erection or penetration fails because of thoughts or feelings rather than physical impossibility.
Besides treating the underlying causes such as potassium deficiency or arsenic contamination of drinking water, the first line treatment of erectile dysfunction is Viagra. Other treatment can include prostaglandin tablets in the urethra, injections into the penis, a penile prosthesis, a penis pump, or vascular reconstructive surgery.
Have you suffered erectile dysfunction after taking Propecia for male pattern baldness? Do I have a Propecia lawsuit?
You might if you have suffered serious sexual side effects after taking Propecia. A prescription drug for male pattern baldness should not cause male breast cancer and the inability to have an erection.
