Dont wait to start finasteride

If you’re at the early stages of balding, take fin as soon as possible.Seriously. Fuck all the sides scaremongers, most people do not get them. Even if they do, they tend to pass after a few weeks or with lowered dosage. Dont wait and fear them like I did. You will save more hair and look better. Remember, 95% of men do not look good bald. Even worse while balding. You are not the 5%.

Don’t deny it to yourself. If your individual hairs are miniaturizing, you are balding. If the crown is looking a little thin, you are balding. If your temples are looking screwy, you are balding. Accept it and get on fin.

              Look up the Halo Effect, specifically in relation to looks. Stop being delusional. There is nothing for you to gain by denying the truth. Humans are extremely superficial and shallow and if you are ugly you are effectively doomed in many regards. Being bald with an ugly face and an ugly skull shape can be akin to a social death sentence. It is only natural that young men wish to prevent this fate for themselves.

      >all furniture offgases formaldahyde in concentrations high enough to affect health
      >carpet offgases formaldahyde
      >modern american homes use wood used with formaldahyde among other chemicals

      We're literally absorbing shitty chemicals 24/7, America is super lax on the allowed chemicals it uses, basically its allowed unless its proven to be unsafe, opposed to only being allowed if it has evidence its safe, like other countries do.
      Finasteride isn't that big of a deal, some people get side effects from it, if thats you don't take it. Its less harmful than SSRIs or other meds that can cause brain tumors. Some people feel better with higher DHT levels, some feel better with lower DHT, Asides balding DHT does do other things like help libido, grow body hair, facial hair, etc. So lowering it can cause some problems in some people, but others dont notice anything.

        This is just demotivational garbage. If you recognize that the world you live in is full of constant exposure to toxins, you can either be like these two fags and shrug and say
        >oh well, i guess it doesn't matter, might as well poison myself more
        or you can learn and apply yourself and reduce your exposure as much as possible. I'm exposed to a tiny fraction of what the average person is exposed to because I take steps to avoid it, and I take steps to mitigate the damage from what I do get exposed to.

        For example,
        >microplastics in everything
        Stop using plastic food/drink containers, stop wearing plastic clothes. Regularly donate blood to help remove what gets into you anyway. Congratulations, you now have a level of microplastic exposure that's 1/50th of what the average person gets.

          You don't ingest microplastics through the use of plastic containers, it's the tiny particles that are literally everywhere from discarded plastic trash that slowly "break down." Donating blood might be okay but and it's always good to avoid plastic, but don't fool yourself into thinking you're cutting back on microplastics by not buying bottled water. The damage is already done worldwide.

      I tried, I couldn't handle it. I started getting random panic attacks like I was doomed, and I couldnt stop them. I felt like aggressive in the gym, less manly, if that makes sense, and I started having weaker erections. I just minox and dermaroll now and i've been getting regrowth. Nothing made me feel as shitty as fin has. I was doing .5 x3 a week after lowering down from 1mg, and then I even tried .25 and it still was affecting me too much. I've always been buzzed, but it looked like I was purposely doing it, instead now it looks like im balding, and it's going away with the minox/derma, so i'm not anti fin, but the sides were way too prevalent for me.

      >panic attacks
      >weaker erections

      https://i.imgur.com/QUvd8wh.jpg

      Here's my experience with finasteride. I started when I was 21 or 22, currently 25. I am perhaps 50% less interested in sex than I used to be. Instead of jerking off every other day I'm doing it once every week or so. My erection quality seems fine. For a while I thought the loss of sex interest was just me getting older, but last week I accidentally took the wrong pill two days in a row and jerked off like crazy. It was a curiously robust natural experiment because I didn't realize I had taken the wrong pill until day 3, so there was no placebo effect.

      Hair effects: when I started finasteride my crown was fully dense and my temples were receding. Four years later my temples have receded a bit more and my crown is slightly less dense, though I only notice it when my hair is wet. In short I went from being way balder than my peer group to being a normal amount of bald for my peer group. I suspect that by 30 I will be less bald than the average 30 year old. For reference, I also did topical minoxidil until last month, when I switched to oral minoxidil.

      Take from this any conclusion you wish.

    Does fin or min help grow a mature hairline? And can I take lower quantities of it if I'm not balding?

    My hairline has been fairly stable for the last 8-9 years, but I have a very unfortunate mature hairline. Norwood 2.5 and thin/fine hair. Really limits what I can do with it.

    And would I lose all the progress if I stop taking it, even if my DHT levels are stable?

      Does it? For some people yes. You? Can't know until you try it unfortunately.
      >And can I take lower quantities of it if I'm not balding?
      To maximize the chances/rate of regrowth higher doses of finasteride help.
      >And would I lose all the progress if I stop taking it, even if my DHT levels are stable?
      Yes. Once you stopped taking finasteride your DHT levels would go up again and start killing the hair you regrew.

      if you get to it early you won't look like you're balding at all. I grew out my hair during corona and it's thick and past my collarbone. I started noticing my bangs getting wispy and freaked out.

      I got on fin 2-3 months ago 1mg every Monday. I got findick but other than that nothing else. I use tongkat ali 1g a day to get rid of findick and my hair is getting better.

      This is what I've noticed in the 3 months.

      So before fin my hairline was slowly creeping upwards which is why my bangs were getting thinner and thinner. After I started taking fin maybe a month in I started seeing baby hairs where my old hairline use to be. 3 months in those baby hairs are starting to fill in my temples and slowly but surely my bangs are coming back to the point I don't even notice I was ever balding.

    Started fin last December.

    >1.25mg EOD, got sides within a month, started getting real ass sides within a few months including aching balls along with the lack of morning wood, could still get hard with girls but generally no random bones
    >kept taking it, but by May I had to cases where I either wasn't getting hard very well with one girl and lost a boner with another girl (although there were other factors with both)
    >took a month off to give blood and started back on 0.75mg daily
    >within a few weeks had side effects going again
    >finally decided to quit and take another month off
    >got on homebrew topical 0.05% solution, applying 2ml daily
    >after a month of that got the same full on no morning wood no boners and only weak boners when jerking off sides

    So yeah. That's where I'm at now. I'm going to be making up 0.005% solution since the original topical studies showed that's an amount that won't go systemic but does promote hair preservation. I think if you're one of the guys who doesn't respond well to it there's just not much you can do, it's gonna fuck you up if it gets in your system. Not only that but it stacks in your tissues since it has a half life of 28 days, I once did the math and if you're taking 1mg daily, within a month you have 22mg of fin in your body still burning out.

    Glad for the guys who are apparently completely unaffected, but before starting fin I was a rampaging sexmonster who'd get boners just by having sexual thoughts. Once I'm on fin it's like I've been fucking chemically castrated. On my month off periods I do notice things starting to get better thankfully.

      This basically happened to me, and I was on shit like tren, and I literally couldn't get hard, whereas normally on tren I get hard at the mere thought of someone's hole. I'd catch myself staring at tits, wanting to fuck every girl I interacted with, introduced fin and that shit completely vanished. I couldn't get hard even with someone licking on my balls or my cock, the thought of pussy was enticing, but I'd literally have a girl sit on my face and it'd do nothing, I'd stay as limp as a noodle. Some guys just get fucked by fin and there's absolutely nothing you can do to combat it, it sucks.

      There's a bit of bias because people with bad effects will be more likely to share. However the 1% number is complete horseshit. The 15% is probably closer to the truth, and the reality is that more than that likely get some measure of effect but just not enough to be very remarkable.

      To me fin is poison to a man. It's cool that dudes don't get effects and good for them, but objectively it fucks around not only with your endocrine system but also a shitload of other things that 5ar2 converts in your body. I think if you're a dude worried about your hair, go on microdose topical fin and min. Don't start fucking around with oral and saturate your entire body in a drug just to have some in your scalp.

          Fin will force your hair back into a regrow state, thus shedding the miniaturized hairs that you have still left (Sometimes it can regrow already lost hair as well). The first positive results should be visible 3-6 months after the first dose, but after two years you will know if it worked for you or not.

      No.

      Finasteride has a half life of 28 days in your tissues. If you spend a month taking 1mg of finasteride per day, then stop cold turkey due to sides, even a month after stopping you've still got 22mg of finasteride in your body in your tissues. For reference, as little as 0.5mg of finasteride still inhibits your 5ar2 enough to cut your serum DHT by 70%. This is why some guys still have side effects up to three months later, it takes forever for it to get out of your system.

      However, some guys say it mostly gets better after three weeks or so. For me I've taken months off of fin and I find after about a month it starts to feel a bit more myself I notice.

    I use fin and minoxidil. I really don't like minoxidil because it's made my hairline a bit unnatural looking on the sides. I've been using it for about 7 months now and haven't seen any substantial regrowth, although there are little baby hairs where there weren't any before. My hairline isn't too bad, but it bothers me that if someone where to look at me, they'd know my hairline is receding. I'm just so vain. I realise a lot more people have it much worse than I do, though. I really hope staying on fin and min will net me some better results in the near future.

        Balding when you’re past 60 is fine. Your looks are already gone. I don’t know what your hairline looks like but it seems like your moms side saved you if you still have hair. My moms side the guys are not bald but their hairline is receded a little. Maybe Norwood 2. My dad is 50 with a perfect hairline. So I got my moms fucked up hair genes but at the same time I also got the height from her side so I’m 6 foot. Which is a balance I guess considering my dads side are all 5’8 or shorter

    I'm NW2/3 and started fin at the age of 28. Did it for 2 years and it probably stopped some receding for sure and didn't give me any significant sides. However, I did have a lot of depressive and suicidal thoughts over these years. I don't know how linked those are but my lifestyle before and after hasn't really changed except for the pills (that coincidentally affect your hormones). No sides other than this.
    I'm 30 now and stopped with it because there's only so long I can keep postponing the inevitable and I gotta learn to accept it eventually.

    My advice to guys considering it - if you're really insecure about your hairloss, then try it 3x/week and see how you feel. If you're generally a depressed person then it will likely enhance your depression and make you hate life even more. If you're under 25, then don't touch it. It's really not worth messing with your brain development for a few more years of hair. Remember that fin doesn't stop balding, it just slows it down and whether you like it or not you will be having to make trade offs with your hormones once you hop on it.

    Good luck balding-bros. I wish the media and modern women didn't psyop so many young men into chemically harming themselves, but it is what it is and we all have one life.

    I started fin 2 weeks ago, 1mg eod. I’ve noticed that my hair has pretty much immidiately stopped falling out. Used to get a bunch of hairs in the shower, or ruffling my head. Also noticed my sleep is a lot deeper and harder to wake up, kinda like this tbh due to the crazy dreams. Libido has gotten little higher, probably due to extra free test in body.

    I'm 21. I think I started receding around a year ago, but didn't notice till December.
    It got really bad this summer - I have this constant sharp pain/aching in my scalp that I assume is the DHT absolutely destroying my hair. I've been to see my Doctor and he said I wasn't receding, but I know I am. I wanted to start on a topical solution like those mentioned in this thread (fin and minoxidil), primarily to keep my hair, but also to stop this debilitating pain in my scalp. It feels horrible and I'd really like it to stop. Does anyone have a similar experience and did the pain go away after starting on treatment? Thanks.

                Don't take chud drugs, be a man. Hairline going is a relatively expected thing for a man. You aren't a woman who by all accounts and hormones should keep her hair.
                >I don't need hair drugs even though I'm balding, look at this picture!
                yes you can clearly see the receding and thinning of the hair at the front.
                >oh I may look like shit because to my thinning, but you can't see it due to the angle of the picture
                You seem to think that the point is to be as ugly as possible any why am I not showing off every flaw possible. But if that was the point, why not just take a buzz cut and chop my hair randomly so it's completely deranged and patchy. That's where your logic would go.
                Frankly it just seems you don't have any sensible point and are just seething at anything you can.

                You have absolutely no idea how you would react with fin. The vast majority of people who take it have little to no sides and usually it’s a matter of managing dosage. Fin half life is pretty short so you could have tried it for a month or two to see how things go. Instead youve been completely scaremongered into going bald. Hope you can own that hairline recession as well as you believe you can.

                Like, I lost hair around my temples earlier than in the middle of my hairline. If I'm on fin for a few years and grow back all those hairs, will it take as long for them to fall back out as it did the first time around?

                If you had grown it back to the exact same density and thickness maybe, but they'd also likely be more sensitized to dht after levels were lowered so it might happen faster again, though thats just conjecture. Its also unlikely youd ever get the same amount of density as when you had juvenile hair, by the time you lose hair somewhere, some of its been gone for years but you just never noticed

                Not quite, but close. You're at a point where you should've started way sooner if you wanted to keep a good head of hair for the next couple of decades, but it's also visually not so bad yet so it's easy for you to cope with hair loss.

                Ok maybe you'll have absolutely zero issues with going from a Nicholas larper to a Lenin larper, but there's also a very real possibility is that the only reason why you're capable of coping is that you do not look like Lenin in the present moment.

    I’ve taken fin 1mg daily for 5 months now, and had no side effects besides 2 positive effects. For some reason my ejaculation size literally doubled around 3 days after taking it, and it’s remained that way ever since. My sex drive also has like tripled. I went from being horny a couple times per week to easily being able to get off 3 times a day and still not be dry. It’s weird since most people report the opposite, sexual dysfunction. I know finasteride can treat enlarged prostrate so maybe I’ve always had one and just didn’t know it? No clue, but I’m in my 20s. I also suspect that I was/am low test and maybe fin help stabilize my levels since test isn’t being converted into DHT anymore, therefore slightly increasing test levels. Combining fin, min and dermarolling has brought me from a norwood 3 vertex to a norwood 2 in those 5 months, with big thickness increases all around my head and the crown filled back in (had about a quarter size bald spot before). Thanks for reading my blog and I recommend this treatment to all my fellow balding bros.

        what type - Nizoral? Is it the 1 or 2%? Very confused about the Ketoconazole meme.

          DS Laboratories. More expensive but it is actually good shampoo and leaves my hair nice, unlike Nizoral which makes everything dry and itchy. Supposedly it decreases DHT on the scalp externally while the fin does the same with hair follicles internally, but doubtful how effective it can be in the 5-10 minutes that I leave it in.

    I take finasteride. The only side effect is a slight decrease in sex drive, but I used to fap 2-3 times a day, so being less-horny is actually a good thing for me lol.

            From what I read the transplanted hair will not fall, but the normal hair you had before will. So, you will end up almost the same. And there seems to be a limit of how many of your hair they can use. Some people need more, some less, but at the end it will be a losing battle without fin.

          I fucked up

          Question: Why use any of these pills and not just do a full transplant? I get that some of you don't have the monk/crown pattern. But if the back and sides are still full of hair while the top has thinned tk the max, isn't doing a transplant THE solution? Or do you have to supplement the transplant with pills too?

          I do know you have to transplant more over the years, I just don't get touching any pills at all.

      You have a limited number of follicles on your head. Hair transplants work by strategically shuffling these follicles around to make it look like you're not losing hair.
      As you continue losing hair, the effectiveness of hair transplants goes down because you're trying to juggle a constantly decreasing number of follicles along a static surface area.
      The bottom line is that while the hair from the back and sides of your head is more resistant to balding, the full horseshoe pattern does not contain enough follicles to cover the whole head.
      tldr yeah you need to take the drugs even if you wanna do transplants

        Damn I really thought you'd always have enough candidate follicles around the hroseshoe.

        Worst case scenario though can't you just settle for a full top and always shave the sides and back?

        I ask all this to try and avoid the drugs as much as possible.

      Minoxidil is the devil, you have to take it forever to keep the hair and it loses efficacy over time, not to mention it doesnt stop the underlying hair loss at all. Also fucks with your heart which to me is a way bigger deal than messing with hormones that only low t people miss. Itll work for a couple years maybe if your thinning is slow and minor but its kinda silly to take over anything else

      This is about as hard as you can fall for the herbal meme.
      I use this shampoo daily and have for a few weeks.

      I noticed very bad shedding shortly after I started BUT this coincided with my schedule changing so I can only apply minox once a day.

      So two possibilities:
      > shed from minox deprivation and I'm fucked
      > shed because this stuff actually works and good hair will grow in after
      The shed was bad enough that I caved and started taking finasteride which further taints any data I might be able to give you.

        Have you considered that if you have dht and mpb youre hair will naturally do that shedding bullshit? If its recent tho and youre a good fin responder itll all come back, usually takes years for follicles to die even after going dormant.

          I mean I never had a real shedding phase when I started minox so I think I might be a nonresponder.

      Youre on the best treatment short of dut and a topical antiandrogen, you no longer get anything by worrying about hair loss, know that you've addressed it and just let the stuff work. Also ya 7 weeks is short as fuck, fin hyper responders get gains in a few months but in all the studies normal people continue to thicken up for years after starting and its at like 1-2 years you see the nicest stuff usually.

    I'm not scared of fin or min. I'm just not financially able to commit to being on them long-term, and I'm definitely too lazy and unstable to keep a consistent schedule on them as well. I'm 26 and have quite the high/receding hairline btw, but I also don't care. I'll probably shave it all off by 30. If the effects were semi-permanent, I'd maybe consider taking them more seriously, but by that logic I should just save up for implants instead.

      A full transplant when you are done balding will be like 25k, if you have enough donor hair. 30 bucks every three months for generic fin gives you 40 years of hair for about $5000. And it will probably be covered by your insurance.

        how do they suck? phase 2 results show that pyrilutamide is significantly more effective than finasteride and dutasteride

        What is your point? antiandrogen topicals can be very effective at treating hair loss. also, pyrilutamide is the only antiandrogen to have large-scale studied conducted on it to evaluate its efficacy and safety profile
