Second day on fin. Not bad and I guess some things are so subtle that the placebo fear freaks me out.
Taking 1.25mg . I would have liked to start with 1mg, but the 5mg proscar tablets from Target are round, not pentagonal.
A few things happened today. Had a stye inside my left eye...this barely happens with my allergies and it was pretty sudden. Kind of freaked me out. The left eyelid (once you open it ) was also a lot more red than my right eye. No allergies present at the moment.
I also lift weights for strength. DEFINITELY felt my legs give out quicker on squat, all things equal on normal days. To be fair here I did up my weight on squats from 180 to 185 ( I am 215 pounds) on a 5 rep scheme. This might be the difference, but increased recovery time.
Libido's been fine. Erection felt a little numb like there was a lot of blood in my penis the second time I had a go today with the lady.
My right eyebrows hairs were shiny/white and I pulled it out easily. Apparently this is a side effect for some people? I thought body hair (as opposed to face hair) is DHT dependent. Am I wrong , or was this a coincidence)
Kind of weird pinching feeling on the left rear delt, but then again I have been lifting hard and I get all kinds of weird body responses all the time.
I'm still kind of on the fence for fin. I was like I'll give it a year, but if there are any sides to it, like showing on my second day (vs paranoia), I think I look good bald, and it is actually kind of liberating and a motivator to continue to workout as I think bald+musclar is sexy.
I also read one thing at this point that seems to still bother me about estrogen/estradiol levels being raised as much as 15%. That kinda sucks ;(
Also, what are the advantages/disadvnatages of a topical DHT blocker? I assume it doesn't show up in your blood serum as much. Isn't it safer in that sense?
