That's what I was thinking, except Flomax does not reduce the size of the Prostate, which is the problem, and Finasteride is supposed to. I need to determine first if the sexual problems are related to the enlarged prostate or the Flomax. I no longer have the difficulty urinating, the pain or the frequency issue since the infection is gone so hopefully I'll have time to figure it out. But I have decided to talk to a Urologist instead of my regular Doctor.

Wow, 19 seems awfully young for this type of problem. I would imagine that is rare.
