View Full Version : Propecia - Denial?

Coming off the back of another thread discussing everyone's experiences with propecia, I am just really curious about why no one seems to mention the one thing that concerns me the most about being on it ...coming off it when wanting to try for children.

I am struggling to understand why this isn't discussed more when it is the one thing that doctors will mention when prescribing propecia and not to mention that it is also a warning on the back of the box.

Is this just not that important to everyone else or is it just a case of denial?

For those of you who may not be aware, coming off propecia will accelerate your hair loss to where it should have been without the aid of finasteride in only a matter of a few months. I've come off propecia and rogaine in the past (never gona back on rogaine) and the shedding was not a joke.

I have had many patients over the years that were taking Propecia and were able to have children while never discontinuing the medication. Most people would agree that having healthy children trumps the possibility of some hair loss.
