Hey guys haven't been here for a while, but just wanted to report in on my experience with taking Saw Palmetto. I used about two pills every day or every other day. Initially I noticed a big shed, but after five or six months they lessened. I got off it after about 7mo's because the sides. It didn't really help my hair. It caused my erections to be much smaller and weaker, my sex drive was also lower while on it, so was libido. Also, after coming off it the weak erections lasted for long time. I think it also shrunk my penis size a tad (I read a study somewhere on the effects of long term androgen deprivation on penis size). Ive somewhat recovered now after stopping, but it took a while. Its still takes longer to get erections, but it could be that Im getting older now (24 almost 25).
