I'm surprised you're still taking this medication and especially DUT. I would've let the inevitable take its course at 50.
    I would say I was destined for a NW 5/6 with the typical Hippocratic horseshoe...I would try to chalk my lack of sex drive to natural aging but don't feel I can do that and be honest with myself. When I was on finasteride I always had a pretty strong sex drive,great performance and plenty of ejaculate volume. As soon as I started on Dutasteride things changed markedly in all departments and have remained that way. It was immediate and unmistakable. I can't really say that after a year now that the dutasteride is saving much hair and I am tempted to go back on finasteride and drop the dut as I want to have more sex drive. I think what happens is that as you age more and more follicles flip their little genetically set clock switches to the DHT sensitive on position and if there is so much as a molecule of DHT floating around it kills them off -so you can take all the DHT blockers you want and you are still gonna lose plenty of hair. All you have to do is get old and its inevitable unless you are/were Ronald Reagan. Yeah although I am well past 50 I hate giving up as I feel just like I did when I was 20. Hell I could be 92 and I would still be pissed off about losing my hair...Just me I guess.........................*sigh*

    You're definitely not the only one in the position! I'm scared of starting the drug because I'm the same.. if it works and I see results I don't think I'd ever be able to withdrawn myself from it. At your age women won't give a toss about hair loss, more than 50% of males your age will be bald and to be honest, to last over 20 years on finasteride I doubt your hair loss is even that aggressive. You're obviously not going to keep a lot of it because everyone's hair thins at your age. My grandfather had the thickest head of hair all throughout his life and then as soon as he hit his 60's he started to thin. It's a natural process of aging.

    Balding isn't inevitable as you age. Check out Ronnie Wood and Mick Jagger - old guys with young heads of hair. And young girlfriends of course.

    Oh trust me - it is inevitable if you have the baldness gene (unlike those two)....
