If you believe you are having a side effect from a medication it is best to discuss this with your doctor.

Causing any sexual side effects

you cannot assure that finpecia(1mg) is not causing any sexual side effects. Some times it takes about 3-6 mo to show side effects .But because of you have to use it for 1,5 year befor without any dramatic side effects , we can say you may use .. But it does not mean that you will never be side effects of it through life time . I dont advice to my young patients to use finasteride which is a chemical substance  because there is some reports that side effects may not be reversed after patient stop to use it.
