Propecia Help/Advice Needed Urgently!!

Postby SRDooley » Tue Jun 23, 2015 4:14 pm

Hi all,

Sorry this is my first post as I really need some information please!

I have been using propecia for 18 months now and am delighted with the results. It has stopped my hair loss and made my crown area which was my main concern a lot thicker. I now only need to use a small amount of nanogen and my hair looks like it did over 10 years ago!!

I have read so much information regarding the risks involved with pregnancy and came to the conclusion that there was very little risk in conceiving whilst I was on the drug. The research I read stated that it was more important not to have unprotected sex during the first 12-16 weeks of pregnancy whist taking the drug. In fact, I did not have unprotected sex with my partner throughout the entire pregnancy but unfortunately my baby was born with a limb defect. I'm absolutely distraught at the thought I may have caused this. I am quite a private person and never actually told my wife I was on the drug!!

What I want to know is will the propecia show up on my medical records if the doctors are looking into my baby's health? I know this sounds so selfish to still be hiding it but I dont think my partner would ever forgive me if she thought the medication is to blame. I will never forgive myself but that is something I will have to live with. We had two healthy boys before I started the medication and I will never know if it was 'just one of those things' or whether the propecia is to blame.

I am looking for advice as to how to move forward and whether anyone knows if it will show up on my records. When I purchase the drug online it asks me to put my doctors name and address in but for the first few prescriptions I mistakenly put the wrong doctor surgery down as there are two close by and I never visit the doctor so am not familiar with his name! The prescription was still granted so is this something they just ask as a matter of compliance or are the prescriptions definitely added to your records?

Has anyone been through anything similar? I would REALLY appreciate all the advice/support I can get!
