I have been noticing lately that i have been experiencing problems getting an erection and maintaining and i think something in my regime may have something to do with it i was also thinking i maybe sensitive to some things.
here's a brief history
in my first couple of years of hair loss i got on fin, propecia and minox
but not at the same time , i ditched them in the end all for the same reason
sexual side effects, after minox i got onto L'oreals Renaxil which at the time
i thought could be worth a try , it was a little more kind to me and allowed me to keep my libido etc longer than the other drugs but eventually just like the others it went , when i got on it i also had no idea that it had minoxidil in it either , i eventually ditched this too because im not willing to part with my
Last Year I got onto revivogen scalp therapy and i hadn't experienced any sexual problems what so ever, i was on it 4 months until i added their shampoo to my regime , i used the shampoo every day and after a month i started having sexual problems i figured it was either too much saw palmetto or what ever else was in the shampoo. I ditched the shampoo and gradually everything went back to normal.
I then Added Murad's Fine hair shampoo 2 months later to my regime and after 2 weeks of using it every 2nd day the same thing happened , this shampoo also contained saw palmetto. I then ditched this shampoo after two weeks of use and once again everything returned to normal .
Around Feb 2012 i added chaz Dean's Wen Lavender styling creme to my regime not for hair loss but to reduce frizz , A week later i also added Osmotics fns Revitalising Shampoo , i didnt pay much attention at that point so i dont know how many weeks had passed while i had been using them but the sexual sides kicked in again. I thought it had to be either the styling Creme or the shampoo but was more suspicious of the styling creme. I stopped using the styling creme for around 2-3 weeks and it only made a little difference . I decided to stop the shampoo last week to see if it has been the shampoo and i think it may be because like previously things are starting to go back to normal.
i suspected the lavender in the creme because i've read that lavender can inhibit dht.
i looked up the ingridients in the shampoo and it seems there's at least 2 dht inhibiting ingredients in the shampoo according to google .
So the question is am i sensitive to some products ?
Is it possible to inhibit too much dht ?
