Dont know why i made this thread since i dont use anything to stop my hair loss progression, im not planning to either, ill try to keep a follow on my hairloss here so in a few years we will see if im a good candidate for an HT.
im 27yo, start losing at 18-19, back then the doctor who checked me said (and i remember this perfectly) "if you dont have atleast 100 hairs on your pillow each morning then your not balding" i wish id make a bet with him that if was balding i get to burn his diploma...
at 22 i went on rogain which almost send me to the hospital due to sides, so i got on propecia, but when i started losing the morning erections i went online to read more fun facts about the drug and found out that propecia could cause gyno, impotence and you have to be on the pill for the rest of your life and it wont stop an aggresive mpb such as mine it will only slow it down, now dont get me wrong, if your on the drug and it helps you then good for you, imo tho there is no way i risk my libido, grow tits, risk losing erections, see minimal if at all improvement and pay top dollar for, idk but that equation doesnt work for me
i believe working on an healthy body and a mindset, studying hard and trying to focus on other things is the only solution for me at this point, building multiple positive anchors that i have control over...i have my downs tho every now and then, we all know its not easy going throw life without a partner, this is the only aspect in my life i've yet to solve, but since my ex, i promised myself that in that area im not going to compromise since i see myself as a long relationship material, so not compromising + going bald sometimes means alot of this and this lol i know it will worth it.
i digress tho, recently i've decided to buzz my head, i removed the head of the machine so i guess its no 0 (??) , i look like crap but there is nothing i can do, im a student and cant afford a HT and cant be bothered with wearing wigs right now. but a HT is definitely one on the horizon for me, 4 to 5 years from now unless they come up with a decent cure.
im not sure what NW im at, i guess nw 3 maybe higher? ... the front is gone, the sides and back are thick, the crown is okish, if it keeps falling in that pattern and stop soon then i might be a good candidate for HT i assume.. anyways thats it for now, sorry for crapy quality, these were taken with my phone camera.
