Although the first couple of pieces here about propecia (also known as finesteride) have dealt with its many issues, there is one that hasn’t been covered yet and that is its role in fighting erectile dysfunction (ED).
In this case, though, the cause of the ED is an enlarged prostate. Why would you end up with an enlarged prostate gland? Though they have run many studies to try to find the causes of enlarged prostate glands, the results have been so heavily written in scientific language that an average layman would have trouble just plowing through a paragraph or two of the work.
They do know, for example, that an enlarged prostate:
•Works against standard erections
•Overworks the body’s production of testosterone
•Promotes painful urination
•Promotes nighttime visits to the restroom
•Causes pain in the area of the penis
Propecia, also known as finesteride in the hands of abusers who make it one of the preferred drugs of body-builders and shapers because of the quick results it promotes in weight gain and retention, is just one of several tools in the medical kits that doctors use.
For one reason or another, it takes some time for propecia to begin its intended use and that is the shrinkage of the an enlarged prostate gland, which could be the precursor to prostate cancer, and while this is happening, the prostate goes on its merry way creating too much testosterone.
The results, as noted, are note good, at first. However over a slightly longer term, propecia begins to dial down the amount of testosterone that is created as it also begins to shrink the enlarged prostate. So, now, instead of working against the goal the doctor is trying to achieve, shrinking your prostate back to normal or slightly smaller (you can use replacement drugs to help keep it small and keep your testosterone levels where they should be), propecia is working as it is supposed to.
Indeed, if it works correctly, it might be possible that you will end up taking propecia to keep your body’s prostate size down, while, at the same time, you are taking as much as 2 cc of testosterone (IM, as the doctors like to say – it’s a shot in the butt from a large needle – please note your author does receive this therapy). Then, there’s that happy state where the doctor’s work is rewarded with the result he wanted, no prostate cancer and ED controlled because he is using external means to help restore the libido that was overwhelmed by all of the testosterone the oversized prostate was putting out).
Indeed, this approach, though it can be painful, if you are hit too many times in the same side with your replacement therapy shot, does work wonders.
The one thing that you should note is that even though propecia helps regrow hair, when you use replacement therapy, it does turn off the hair replacement. Though it does turn on the libido you are seeking. Usually, an endocrine specialist will order up to 2 cc of delatestril or testosterone every 18 to 23 days to act as replacement therapy for the testosterone so that your prostate stays in the “off” position and helps it to shrink.
It seems a little contrary when you think about it, but if you replace one item in your body with another one from an external source, your body thinks it is still making its own chemicals and thanks to the shrinking ability of propecia, your enlarged prostate stays shutdown.
Overuse of propecia, like overuse of any drug does lead to weight gain and the other problems already described. However, that’s not limited just to propecia. Any drug will work like that.
Other than helping to reduce the size of a swollen prostate gland, thereby lessening the chances of prostrate cancer, one has to wonder why anyone would knowingly work with a practitioner and use propecia (also known as finesteride) and the only other reason that one can really find is that help to induce hair growth in some men with male pattern baldness.
For the most part, though, propecia is one of those drugs that power lifters and body shapers use to gain body mass quickly so that they can compete in the usual “Mr. Universe”-style body-building contests.
Many times, young athletes, who see their elders gain huge amounts of muscle mass when finesteride is used, begin to take these androgenic corticosteroids in dosages that would make a bull sterile.
Unfortunately, that’s one of the key side effects of this type of drug, sterility. This has been confirmed by massive studies in Norway and the United Kingdom where they found that while there was some gain right at the beginning of the use, when the patient was taken off the drug (cycling back to normal, as lifters know it) they not only experienced gynomastomia but they also ran into roadblocks having normal intercourse as well.
Yes, it is true that propecia does have a place in the arsenal of medical treatments, but it is for a very specific type of complaint.
At some age – usually in advanced middle-age – most men will experience the need to use the bathroom several times per night and that, as they stand or sit (some people take a long time to start) the flow is tough to start. Once it does start, the flow can then be slow and erratic, leaving you with a cleanup problem afterward.
In many cases, if enlarged prostate is left untreated, it may develop into prostatic cancer which, while curable, leaves the patient impotent as the usual treatment for this type of medical problem is removal of the prostate, a small – about walnut-sized – gland just in back and above the penis.
In young men, its role is quite well known; it works with the testicles to create sperm so that children can be conceived. However, as you age this particular part of your body slows down and can actually become swollen.
Of course, there are many men in which this gland functions far into old age (the author’s great-great grandfather was believed to have sired several of his 14 children after the age of 69 – this means they should actually have given him a different nickname than they did, but that’s another story. However, in many men propecia offers a relatively safe – if directions are followed explicitly – a way to reduce the effects of swollen prostate.
This is the type of illness that sneaks up on you. You can’t really feel it (a doctor can using special tests that aren’t at all comfortable), but once it is diagnosed, propecia 5mg is probably the first drug the doctor will use. The same is true of male pattern baldness because one of the side effects of propecia use is hair regrowth on bald heads.
How long should you take this drug? That is up to the way your body responds to it, but, a general rule is the more quickly you can get on and off it, the better as it is not meant for long-term use.
That is can help beat prostate cancer and enlarged prostates with no surgery needed is just what the doctor ordered – no pun intended.
