I've been doing pretty good, I noticed when I started finasteride in the first month or two I had some shooting groin pains, not the ball ache that people said they had, as well as some chest/breast sensitivity. Both of these have gone away now, and in terms of my hair, not much has changed except I think I am thinning a bit more on my left side.Whats your hair looking like now?
Honestly I'm shedding more hairs right now since starting finasteride which my dermatologist told me can happen; he says normally you begin to see results 3-4 months in at the 1mg dose, so since I just changed to 0.5mg every day he said it could take longer to see noticeable results or halting of hair loss.
I'll attach some pictures of what my hair looks like now, I took these a few days ago. I have a naturally high forehead like you and you can definitely see some thinning in front compared to how my hair looked last year, it was so much thicker :/ I know my hair situation is not as bad as others on here so I'm grateful for what I have and will be totally satisfied to maintain if that's all finasteride ultimately does for me. But who doesn't want to experience thickening + regrowth you know? Hopefully I'll have better results to show after the 6 month mark!
