Minoxidil and its side effect

minoxidil like any other medication has some side effects, however libido is not one of them. If you are using products and have concerns and questions, it is a good idea to do it under supervision of a hair restoration expert.

Rogaine and Libido

SurferDude91,

Rogaine should have no significant effect on a person's libido. The only indirect relation might be that if it does help an individual maintain and occasional re-grow their hair. Then one may feel sexier and of course more confident. This can lead to more success dating and being more engaged leads to more. Good luck!

All the best,
