Drug That Fights Baldness Also Causes Shrinkage, Bad Sex
See that big yellow blob sitting in the corner sobbing? It's Homer Simpson, who just read a new research report that concludes men taking the baldness-fighting drug Propecia may suffer permanent side effects from the drug, including erectile dysfunction, shrinking genitals, lowered libido and problems with orgasms.

The study, from researchers at George Washington University, found that 96 percent of men who sued Propecia suffered the side effects more than a year after they stopped taking the mediation.
More disturbingly, the results suggest Propecia's side effects may be permanent, Time.com reports, which was not a conclusion researchers had drawn previously.
The study's sample was small, and most of the participants were recruited via an Internet forum, so the authors caution that the results may be skewed towards men who were negatively impacted by the drug.
But, the FDA has updated its warning labels for the drug, and the study's author tells ABC News, "Our findings make me suspicious that this drug may have done permanent damage to these men."
So, the choices: baldness or low libido, bad sex and general issues with your junk.
Sorry fellas, this one seems like a no-brainer. Bald can be beautiful … junk on the fritz permanently is not.
