Saw palmetto and Beta-sitosterol are unscientific formulations of no proven benefit. You have to first undergo a general health check up to rule out diseases like thyroid, diabetes etc. Next you have to check your hormonal status and consult a sexologist.

Dear sir, these substances contain agents that may inhibit 5 Alfa Reductase enzyme. These drugs are used treatment of prostate enlargement as well and the effects you are experiencing are their known side effects. They will be reversed in some time after stopping these drugs.
