    Default Propecia and Gyno/breast tenderness.

    So I've started to take propecia. I've been gradually working my way up to taking it every day via the method Spex posted a while back(.5mg once a week, then twice, then three times and so on.) I'm up to taking it 3 times a week now. I was afraid of gyno as a side effect since i have high Estrogen levels and even had gyno in my right chest as a teenager.

    I noticed that I'm starting to get some tenderness in my left nipple and breast area and it's got me worried. Does anyone know if this might go away as my body gets used to the drug? Should I stop, wait for the tenderness to die down and start on .25 mg instead? As much as I'd hate Gyno, the surgery i had as a teenager fixed it fine for the right side(as is why i suspect only my left nipple is sensitive now) and looks perfectly normal, I think id rather get surgery on the left one as well than stop propecia and loose my hair.

    Maybe go see a doc, get hormones checked and whatnot? There are drugs you can take to ward off gyno but someone mentioned they aren't technically meant for that purpose....estrogen blockers I think they are

    Will the surgery actually prevent you from ever getting gyno again? Propecia gave me gyno this year and I am probably going to have to get surgery but I'm waiting to see if the gyno goes away on its own. If I can get surgery to just kill off any future chance of gyno I may do just that and continue with propecia.

    As for your dosage, I would definitely drop it down to .25 for a while and see what happens. .25 3x a week should be okay for a while and then you can reevaluate and bump up if the gyno stays at bay.
