In about mid october i first noticed that i had been losing my hair( at the right temple) . I asked for some second and third opinions and everyone thought i was crazy so i let it go. 2 months later it became much more apparent (probably due to stress from a girl i was dating/ me realizing that i was in fact actually losing my hair) and i started to really freak out. i was still in denial about it, so i saw a dermatologist and she told me that i did have a little bit of recession, and prescribed me some propecia. At this point i had been using rogaine for probably 4 or 5 days so i just decided why not try to save my hair. so i basically started propecia and rogaine at the same time (i will not recommend this to anyone as i was unaware of how messy of a situation that it could become). Mind you, i started my regimen on january 18th. so, a few weeks after starting rogaine i saw a pretty bad shed on my right temple, bad enough to the point where i had very little confidence in going out and what not because it was noticeable. i am a pretty social guy and am only 20 years old so hairloss is something that i am embarrassed about. also, i started another shed just in the past few days and i believe that its from propecia, because it is not just in my temples but throughout the entire part of the top of my head. my hairline (especially on the right side) has thinned a little bit in the past couple weeks. i have very thick hair in general and it has definitely thinned noticeably since starting these 2 hairloss products. I have read in different places that propecia has a shed that occurs in some people and i believe that i got that, especially since its supposed to happen at or around month 2 and i am just approaching month 2 of my journey. so all in all, my hair has thinned a little bit in general, and especially along the hairline. ive read on other forums that this could be from the propecia as well. But in my opinion, i believe i am below baseline because my hair in thinner then it was previously, but my right temple has seen a little bit of regrowth so i am optimistic as to what the future will hold. Regimen: Rogaine, .25 dermaroller that i use every morning on my temples prior to application( started using this 2 or 3 weeks into my journey), propecia (generic finasteride to be exact), nizoral shampoo every other day (started using about 2 weeks ago) 1st pic- Just before my first application of rogaine 2nd pic- One month into my journey, this is probably the worst that the "bald spot" has looked, although there isnt much thinning anywhere else on the hairline 3rd pic- Present day, you can see that there is regrowth in the "bald spot", but if you compare the thinning along the hairline to the first pic, you can see that it is definitely thinner in this pic. So, yes i have experienced some regrowth but ive also experienced some loss due to the shed. i will try to keep this updated as i was one of the ones reading these forums religiously, trying to find answers/ comparisons to my situation. Lmk what you guys think P.S. I applied to both of my temples, even though my left temple didnt see the same severity of recession as my right temple. I sadly didnt take any "before" pictures of my left temple.
