It’s been said that around 30% of men have experienced noticeable hair loss by the time they reach 30 years of age. Many of these men opt to start using hair loss medication in order to combat this onset of male pattern baldness.
As with any medications, there may be some side effects associated with the use of hair loss medication – of which erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of them. In 2017, scientists from Northwestern University set out to find if a sizable portion of men continue to suffer from ED after stopping the hair loss drugs.
While the negative sexual side effects of these drugs are well-known and publicized, the media misinterpreted a portion of this study and came out with some pretty sensational claims.
