I have been consuming Finasteride 1 mg for more than a year for androgenic alopecia. I have mild hair fall concentrated at the vertex. My hair started thinning before four years, mostly at the vertex. My age is 36. I am in excellent health and married. Now, I am planning for a baby. Currently, I am taking Finasteride alone. But, in the past, I used Minoxidil. As my scalp was too dry, I stopped using it before six months. Since, Finasteride is contraindicated for women, are there chances of my wife getting affected from my consumption of it?

Thank you doctor,
Thank you for the quick response. Is it better to have both Finasteride and Minoxidil for better result? Or just any one of these can be resorted with equal impact? How long does Finasteride take to go out of the system completely once the person stops consuming?
