Hey everybody, I'm a 23 year old male who has been dealing with a receding hairline for 3 years now.
I started to lose hair when I was stressed out in college (coupled with the passing of my mother) I definitely noticed my hairline has moved up a couple inches on the crown.
I used Rogaine at first, but after 6 months, i was left with an even thinner hairline and tremendous shedding so I had to stop, and I'm hesitant to use minodixl again.
I was recommended propecia by a dermatologist I saw, but after reading about all the side effects, there's no way in hell I'm taking that stuff.
I'm really anxious about my hair loss, I try not to think about it but I see loose hairs everywhere and I feel like I'm constantly shedding about 10-20 hairs everytime I rub my fingers through my hair.
Do I have any options left besides hair transplant, propecia, or rogaine?
Also note: I've started taking vitamin supplements and stopped smoking (for about 3 months) but still no difference in the rate of my hair loss. I don't see any thinning on the top of my head, but my hairline is receding faster than I could've imagined.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
