For at least a few months? How did it go? Anything to worry about?

And what’s your age btw?

Here's a blog post about the topic: https://blogs.harvard.edu/billofhea...fda-approved-baldness-remedy-is-it-effective/

Propecia = Finasteride

Keep in mind that you'll need to keep taking Finasteride for the rest of your life. If you stop, the hair growth you'll experience will stop.

Most likely it will, but I need to know if your dick will be dead. That's what I can't really afford.

I've been taking for some years now. No problem at all, nothing. Shit saved my hair. But I first advise to take some hormone tests before and talk to a doctor. At least thats what I did before starting taking Finasteride, to make sure that I get any surprises.

Bad writing there, sorry. But I did talked first to a doctor and he advise me to take some hormonal test before starting finas, after he checked he said that I was ok to take finas, and I advise to take hormonal tests once per year to see that thing are alright. So, I've been taking finas for 3 years know and nothing happens to me, dick still working and all, my hair indeed stop falling.

I didn't get any sides and it's been a year. Just started using topical fin at 0,1% with minoxidil 5%. Had acell 3 months ago and started min then and derma with 1.0. I see black hairs where there were vellus. Probably gonna get a cm down on the hairline after they grow out. Just need to go to 1.5mm dermaroller. Which won't be fun.

Yeah but have you had any new growth?

Also wouldn't needling the entire scalp take forever and you are not consistent due to freehand?

I've been on it for 3 months (while using nizoral shampoo once in a while). I decided to go on it after seeing small minaturised hairs near my hairline and my temples slowly thinning (that combined with itchy and inflammated scalp), no sides effects I still masturbate frequently as always, also my hair shedding reduced significantly.

I was very nervous at first but after reading countless of studies I decided to go on it. I don't know why fin gets so much shit while medications like accutane have a statistically much higher risk of side effects.

Shit sounds ogre
You need to continue the treatment for like 6-12 months to see some effects
What did your doctor say?

Well as I said just give it more time. Additionally you can dermaroll, there are studies that it helps regrowth
If your tits pain gets uncomfortable, half the dosage or stop Fin. Unless you don’t care about gyno
