Minoxidil Sexual Side Effects

by RedRestore on January 13, 2020

Can Minoxidil in Hair Loss Treatments Cause Sexual Side Effects?

 

Minoxidil can be a great friend with benefits when it comes to hair loss. But does it come with strings attached?

What Is Minoxidil?

Minoxidil is the main active ingredient in the topical treatment, Rogaine. One of the most popular hair loss treatments on the market. Minoxidil is thought to work as a vasodilator, enlarging hair follicles and extending the hair growth phase. However, one study found that low levels of patients reported some form of sexual dysfunction after minoxidil use.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Sexual dysfunction is a symptom that can occur from hair loss treatments that uses DHT blockers. DHT or dihydrotestosterone is a prominent male sex hormone derived from testosterone that binds to receptors in hair follicles, causing them to miniaturize. This leads to hair thinning and eventual baldness.  

 

Since these treatments interpret the production of male sex hormones, sexual dysfunction can occur. Symptoms including decreased libido, impotence and ejaculation disorder can all occur with hair loss treatments that involve hormone blockers.

Facts on Minoxidil and Hair Loss

Minoxidil doesn't use DHT blockers in its treatment.

 

So why were patients reporting sexual dysfunction?

 

When compared to DHT blocking treatments. The study showed that minoxidil users reported symptoms such as erectile dysfunction at very low rates. Only 4.35% of minoxidil patients reported erectile dysfunction compared to the 50.39% of patients who used DHT blockers.

 

While minoxidil’s sexual dysfunction effects are reported at much lower rates, the question still remains as to why they would occur at all. The most likely answer is that these patients were experiencing sexual dysfunction due to other reasons such as stress, high blood pressure, or a range of other causes.
