    Briz's Story - ( 22yrs old, Timeline With Pics...)

    I've probably been losing my hair since I was 19 years old, but not at this rate. In 1 year's time I have lost a lot of hair and its just getting worse. I've been taking pics and monitoring it since last year, and clearly its visible im on track to lose a lot of hair.



    The last pic is the scariest, and it is how I am right now. When I comb my hair forward I can hide it somewhat, but it is very sad to see.

    I began using Finpecia on October 20th, 2008, and I bought a 6 month supply. Im still worried if it is genuine finpecia or not, but I have to try them in order to see if they work for me.

    Does anybody know of a place online where I can order Finpecia from that is reliable? Im not 100% about the place that I ordered my Finpecia from, and I will not know if they work until I have taken them for several months.

    Anybody have any idea as to how long Finpecia will take to show at least some hope of hair growing back?
    If my hair continues to fall at this rate I could be bald pretty soon unfortunately unless Finpecia works for me.

    I will continue to update this post in the coming months in hopes that I can show you guys some good news in the near future.

    I can't give you any medical suggestions but have you seen your physician about this? Your hair "looked" alright to me a year ago, but the lighting was slightly darker so I can't make a judgment on how advanced your hairloss was at that point (and I'm no expert). It seems to be too quick.

    Secondly I'd make sure that the fin you're getting is legit - it'll remove a lot of stress for you. Again, I don't know where you got yours, but I'm sure many on these forums can tell you if you provide some information as to where you procured it.

    Third, have you considered shaving your head? It reduced my stress a lot when I first discovered my hairloss; bad thing is that I was then in denial for half a year. But now that you are doing something about it, it's easier mentally just to not fret about hair coming out in the shower. You (and others) might even like it like that.

    Hang in there.

    The hair loss progressed quickly I'd say from May till Now, and I just cant believe it. My hair looked perfect last year now that I look at it.

    I've been to Bosley to see the Doctor there to check me out and he clearly told me this would happen unfortunately. He told me to start taking Propecia, but it costs too much money for me. I ignored it for a year, and now im where I am today in those photos.

    I made a thread about 2 months ago here in this forum about where I got my Finpecia from. Here is the thread:

    http://www.hairlosstalk.com/interact...p?f=61&t=49174

    The website I got it from was http://www.xxxxxxx.com (It got scratched out for some reason in that thread)

    Im hoping I didnt buy some fake Finpecia, but I have no way to tell. If somebody can tell me where I could get some truly legit Finpecia I would greatly appreciate it.

    So far i've been taking the pills and have had no side effects, so either im lucky or i got ripped off.

    Could anyone else who's reading this authenticate the finpecia he got?

    Sorry Briz I've got no experience with online shopping - I got my Propecia through a prescription. It's expensive as heck. Once I see my physician this week I might try to get a prescription for proscar instead.

    As for that site you said you got your finpecia through, I've not seen it while browsing this site; most people around here seem to get theirs from 1 or 2 online sites, I think InHousePharmacy or something. A search should quickly point you in the right direction but keep a healthy dose of skepticism whenever you're seeing things online. Prudence never hurts.

    Well it looks like the two sites are: unitedpharmacies.com and inhousepharmacy.com

    Im gonna try inhousepharmacy.com since it looks like most people get it from there.

    Hey I appreciate your responses and it has already lead me to sites that people here use, and claim to have had progress with. So im gonna take another gamble on this and hope for the best, since I do believe generic4all.com is a scam, i just have a bad feeling about them.

    It is alot of loss in such a small ammount of time at your age. Please get some blood tests done and possibly a full physical.

    Why would I need blood tests done or a Physical? The amount of hair I loss from May till now is a lot, and its scaring the crap out of me.

    I think it is a good idea to get a physical to rule out possibilities of hormonal imbalances or thyroid problems that might be eliminated some other way.

    Unfortunately you're already on meds, but I would get into contact with your physician in any case just to see what you can do. The most frustrating thing isn't really about the loss itself, I would bet, but not being in control of your body and by extension, life. I'd found that a combination of a good physician and being proactive about researching your options helps at least to calm me down about my hairloss and restored a semblance of control.

    I'm glad my suggestion lead to some progress. But I wouldn't discount your pills just yet; although them being mailed without boxes is a tad worrisome, another poster was right that faking the meds would probably be even more expensive than just making real ones. I hope you hadn't spent much money on them though and now have a better idea as to were to get your next supply.

    Well since im trying to be on top of this, I'll schedule a physical tomorrow with my doctor and see if they can see whats up with me.

    But if anyone can verify if generic4all.com is legit, please let me know because I ended up spending around $130 for them for a 6 month supply.

    Hey thanks for the info monitoradiation, all info is appreciated.

    If anyone else has suggestions, please let me know. Thank you.

    I'd get some tests done.

    It doesn't look like normal MPB, and it seems to have hit far quicker than people usually start balding - Seems to have progress more in 2 months than it did for the whole previous year. Could be lots of things from thyroid/alopecia from stress/lack of zinc, inisitol etc. etc.
