Finasteride doesn't treat hair loss by shrinking your prostate. Decrease in prostate volume is one result of taking finasteride, but the hair retention/growth effect is from the drug binding to the 5a-reductase enzyme. This blocks testosterone from binding to the enzyme and forming DHT (which, btw, doesn't require ejaculation to form in the body, despite what you implied before). DHT is the androgen responsible for miniaturizing hair follicles. Less DHT in your bloodstream means less DHT miniaturizing your follicles, which means slowing, stopping or reversing genetic pattern alopecia in most males.
Sexual dysfunction occurs in fewer than 5% of men who use 1 mg finasteride based on studies done in the last 15 years. I haven't experienced this side effect and neither have most users, including people who have used higher than recommended dosages for 15+ years.
I won't even get into all the other incorrect statements you have posted in this thread.
