I read the data and it says what it says. It just is what it is. I know you guys don't like it but evidence does not lie.
Not once did I say that ALL instances of negative sexual side effects are psychosomatic - as implied by UK_. Yes UK_, you did not read what I wrote. You read into what I wrote and interpreted it the way you did just so you could try to start an argument. Now go away.
The safety profile of RU and those other grey market treatments have not been adequately and appropriately established. Jumping on this bandwagon is foolish and reckless. Many of you guys are going to be very sorry you did that.
I think the chances of major side effects on fin are exagerrated on forums, because of the very nature of forums. Though they are higher than what merck claims.
However, you simply dont understand how scary it is almost decide between your sex life and hair. Fin was tested properly for safety and to this day we are still learning new things.
I dont think RU will leave many guys very sorry they did it, though there are other substances that make me think people shouldnt be using high doses and taking orally.
If histogen launch into phase 3 with fire in their bellies next year, we know exactly how long we have to stay on these chemicals. Whether it is fin, RU or whatever.
These are calculated risks, but desperate guys, and I am one of them
1. Keep your scalp clean (shampoo)
2. Lower DHT levels and keep DHT away from receptors
3. Add stimulants such as minox and AHK (NOT past 5%).
4. Complete diet change, and include things like Biotin.
5. Stay positive. I have a feeling that worrying about sides endlessly might bring them on. In a minority of users.
6. Address inflammation with oils.
