    an intelligent response to a dumb post. Testosterone is good for you on the inside. But IBM likes to eat spironolactone. Soy is probably only a small fraction phyto estrogens. You need to guy the extract. I bet the estrogens are stuck to the protein. You can even grind up a birth control pill and put that on your head, but you will probably get gyno with your hair growth. just go with Lavender instead.

    I can see myself in a year or two in a big field of Lavender with my head full of hair and a tear dropping of my eye!

    That doesn't explain why testosterone levels would decline.

    IBM, if you had high testosterone levels, you'd probably be naturally muscular. Not sure about that though. Well, you'd be as muscular as the average black man.

    I'm the inversion of black men. My muscles are rare and flacid. But that doesnt mean that my testosterone is low or normal.

    Trying to fight hair loss by decreasing Testosterone is basically just a more problematic & less effective way of doing what finasteride or dutasteride would do.

    Check you index/ring finger ratio, that gives an indication on testosterone levels. My guess is yours is low if your muscles are 'rare and flacid'

    On my left hand my index finger is little higher (but almost equal) then my ring finger. On my right the ring finger is little (but almost equal) then my index finger... But i'm going bald.

    testosterone binds just like dht and causes hairloss just not nearly as powerful as dht. propecia and dutasteride increase testosterone and no one can prove that slow gradual hairloss over the years doesnt have anything to do with testosterone levels.
    Also you can guess at testosterone levels by how much muscle someone has or there finger ratios or whatever you want. That doesnt mean thats whats causing the hairloss or even that those guesses are right and testosterone fluctuates a lot throughout different activities much blood pressure.
