The thing is just a few days back I realized I am not getting an erection like I used to before starting finax, and today I couldn’t get an erection at all, I tried a lot, also the volume of the sperm has been reduced, I don’t know what to do, I am in a lot of tension right now as I am losing a lot of hairs and want to continue on finax and at the same time this happened, is it because of finax that I am not.getting an erection. Please reply.
