Long term effects: impotence, smaller balls and, firing blanks.

Not worth it.
This is a treatment you can test the waters with, without causing any lasting damage. If you notice some sort of unwanted side effects within the first month, simply stop taking it. There is a small percentage that can experience negative side effects. I've taken it for 10 years now to maintain, still have my hair, with no negative consequences like that.

Regarding infertility,
"There is a suggestion that some problems with fertility may be present in long term users of finasteride. Questions of sperm count and sperm motility have been an issue; but a cause and effect between the drug and this finding have not been proven as low sperm counts and low sperm motility are present in many men who do not take finasteride. I have advised men with low sperm counts or low sperm motility who are on finasteride, to stop the drug if pregnancy becomes a problem. We do know that when using Dutasteride, a more powerful DHT blocker, that fertility is a problem."
