    Your forehead is big but your hairline is fine

    yes, your hairline IS receding, but this could or could not be normal levels?

    Men with a widows peak are always receding, the question is always "how much" and "how fast"

    your recession could be really slow and only really be obvious in 40-50 years, or it could speed up at any point and you'll see it pull back in 3-4 years at some point

    always look to the corner of the peak as a guide. If the corners begin moving over your ears, that means it's actively receding and you're in for male pattern baldness. if it stays put then it either means it'll recede really slowly or the receding comes later

    tho I can see the tip of the peak (center of forehead) flattened that's not a big deal nor a direct indicator of MPB, could just be the way your forehead is shaped. Just watch it and check back every few months and if it's progressing go get some rogaine and try that first

        it's a faded widows peak, trace from the corners and you'll see an M shape, just without a well defined center

    This isn't suicide tier, but yes, you're balding and you caught it just in time to do something about it.

        dht is pretty much usless after puberty
        if you are so worried about side effect go topical and reduce dosage
        you can still get a scalp dht suppresion of 60-80% while serum ht is only reduced by around 35%
        combine it with scalp massages, minoxidil and microneedling and you will not lose hair

    it's hard to tell because this is at an angle, and also we don't know what it looked like before
    as far as what i can see, i think your hairline looks fine, but that's not to say that it isn't getting worse, because i don't know what it looked like before. if you had the perfect straight bar hairline previously, then it is starting to recede, yes.

    Looks like the start of it but somewhat hard to tell with the blurry image. Get on fin and you'll be fine, it's easier to maintain than to regrow so it's best to catch this stuff early.

    I started on Rogain at around 24-25. Fin at 30. I regret not starting on fin sooner.

      is there a point in taking min/rogain without taking fin?

        It depends on what type of male pattern baldness you have. Rogaine is only effective if you're losing hair on the crown of your head (the back). It doesn't help with receding hairline.

          It does help, they only tested it on the crown so legally it's all they can say, but min works on temples though not as much as it's harder to regrow there

          It even works for your beard

    Is hair transplant a real option? Turkey round trip is only like 6 grand

      If you get a hair transplant you'll still just have to take finasteride anyway to maintain the new hair.
      Might as well just start fin regardless.

    It depends. Try it out and see what happens.

    But be careful because the longer you take Fin.... the longer your erectile dysfunction lasts and it could be permanent.
    >The side effect of persistent erectile dysfunction is rare. This is erectile dysfunction that continues for an extended period after you have stopped taking finasteride. For those who do experience this side effect, it could last months or years. However, treatment is available.

    DO NOT take finasteride, that shit will destroy your dick permanently.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7354335/#:~:text=In%20addition%20to%20ED%20and,genitalia%20(9%2D11).

    “In addition to ED and low libido, adverse effects of finasteride may include penile atrophy, diminished ejaculatory volume and force, and an increased incidence of Peyronie’s disease; the latter of which may be mediated by a decreased effect of DHT on male genitalia”

    I got Peyronie’s disease weeks after starting finasteride, now my dick has a ‘hinge’ in it and I will never be able to have penetrative sex without literally breaking my dick in half, there is no cure.
    Balding is trivial compared to this, I’d go completely bald in a second if I could get my dick back to the way it was. Don’t take finasteride, it’s not worth it, even if it stops your balding completely and there’s only a 0.1% chance you get ED or peyronie’s it isn’t worth it, trust me.

      Sounds an awful lot like a gnomish shill post to keep anons from taking a simple pill that will cure hairloss and with it also depression from hairloss.
      You're probably also the shill on IST who says accutane causes people to suicide.. As if having horrible acne isnt a reason for suicide lmfao.
