hello all idk if you saw my first thread but i have since started taking propecia n need some help..

so i've been on propecia for about 3 weeks now and last week i started to notice a slight testicular pain on my right testicle. it usually happens at night when im at home in bed or that might be the only time i notice it.. but anyways seems as though it doesnt happen as often anymore so maybe its going away... but my problem now is my right nipple has been oddly sensitive and my breasts seem to hurt but not tender? like its sore but if i touch it, it doesnt hurt. is this normal? will it go away even if i keep taking it (i really don't wanna lose my hair).. i'm scared i might get gyno or this is a sign of gyno.. nipple isn't swollen and no lumps that i know of.. am i over thinking this? i don't want man boobs.. what should i do?

thanks in advance!

My advice and i am not a doc is continue to ride it out as you are only 3 weeks in, however slightly drop dose and allow your body to get used to the drug. Possibly 1x every 3 days for the next fortnight for example then 1 x 2 days for the fortnight after that..The mind is a powerful tool so try not think too much about it.
Not to down play your symptoms but i know a guy who was convinced he was going to get the meds and felt he had the majority after 1 tablet.., just not possible! this is a true story.

I really dont think it could cause such a rapid reaction mate - possibly a mind game you have going on with yourself ;)

my propecia experience was very different. 3 hours after taking i started having braxton hicks contractions. since i'm not pregnant i wasn't that worried. but then my unit went soft on me like 6 hours later and it took a hoover attachment will full suction to bring it to erection.

but that proceeded to burn up the vacuum as i forgot that the floor brush was still on and turning over and over while i was working on myself. so it was then a trip to wally world for a new hoover for the wife before she comes home.

but with the new hair possibilities i kinda feel like elmer fudd with his hair tonic. gonna be a whole new man.
