Hi guys, welcome all, this is my first post here. To be honest, I'm pretty perplexed and shocked by the intense hairloss I experienced this year. I first started noticing my balding perhaps a 1.5 year ago: my hairline was slowly receding at the temples, but it was minimal. In the summer of 2016 it made me alarmed enough that I decided to go on finasteride. I did so in October that year; it was generic finasteride from the doctor. Throughout late autumn and early winter I had troubles with my hairline; I thought it fell below baseline. During that time I was also using minoxidil (I stopped it in March because of facial bloating). However in March/April I felt my hairline stabilised; anyways I still had a great head of hair so I wasn't really worried. Then in late May I noticed my temples were visibly thinning. I was 8 months in and thought that perhaps it was a shed. Within 3 months between May and August, my hairline got decimated, and I was shocked because I didn't and still don't understand why. In late August I buzzed my hair because I wanted to see how I'd look like bald. This revelead some thinner areas on the scalp which I had never suspected because with a normal haircut my hair looked thick everywhere but in the temples. I'm not sure if it's diffuse thinning or some broad crown thinning. Enclosed are the photos of my hair as it looks like now.
