Minoxidil will causes sexual effects?

Thank you for your question.  Try a reputable source for your information - a well-established hair surgeon with a long history and good reputation - or an organization like the ISHRS or the ABHRS that is not trying to get you to buy something from them.

Mixed up side effects

Minoxidil does not cause sexual side effects.  End of story.  Lower blood pressure or minor skin irritation is the usual side effect.

Your question indicates that you are using the Internet for the majority of your research.  Remember, Dr. Google does not actually practice hair medicine, and is usually trying to sell you something.  Try a reputable source for your information - a well-established hair surgeon with a long history and good reputation - or an organization like the ISHRS or the ABHRS that is not trying to get you to buy something from them.

Good luck!

Minoxidil

I have not seen or heard of patients having sexual side effects from minoxidil. It is best to review your concerns during your consultation with a hair restoration surgeon.
