    Currently in the process of getting this for my hair loss.

    Was just wondering if anybody had any side effects from trying this therapy?

    Will be taking one milligram topically on the area where I've lost hair, due to
    androgen alopecia.

    Was assigned a link to read before I got this. I was blown away of the hair regrowth
    from using it.

    Here are just a few of the side effects of estradiol reaching excessive levels in your body:

    Erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, infertility, and other types of sexual dysfunction
    Enlargement of, or development of, breasts
    Persistent fatigue or lack of energy
    Mood swings, anxiety, or depression

    This is only a short list of possible symptoms of estradiol – as you can see, it’s quite serious. As a man, your body's meant to have more testosterone than estradiol, just as the reverse is true for women. If a woman has too much testosterone, she begins to develop male characteristics, so it only makes sense that the opposite is true for men.

    You getting estradiol or estriol? If estriol what product. I'm also interested it and have read lots of contradictory testimonys. I'd start super light and wait 30 days to increase.

    You probably don't have to worry about much about topical application but keep in mind hormonal balance is critical so levels should be monitored. Estrogen dominance, should it swing that way, increases cancer risk.

    You get sides from bi-estro? You apply 1mg?

    I am definitely starting light.

    But after reading some of these posts, I'm starting to think I should
    back off.

    I'm only doing .1% topical, which is equal to one milligram.

    What side effects do you think could happen?

    I'm starting to think this is a bad idea, and maybe I should stay away.

    I actually take androgens, because I occasionally have recreational sex (too much info, I know!).

    My testosterone levels are normal for a man my age (I'm FUCKING OLD AND OVER THE HILL!).

    I don't want to scare or shock people, but things go down hill fast. Especially the plumbing below.

    If your testosterone levels are normal, why do you need additional to have sex? Are you doing testosterone injections pellets, cream? Surely, you can't be that old, isn't there an age limit on these forums? (See, it's not too much info.) :D

    Why don't you crush them up and make a topical lotion out of them. You can add them to Rogaine or the Promox you are using.

    It's funny, I tried that with my solid Finasteride tablets. It didn't seem to do anything, although it
    didn't hurt either.

    I don't have enough courage to take oral estrogen, and to be honest, that scares me more than
    topical. (And maybe I should be equally scared, who knows).

    The topical amount is very small. It's also made by a known compounding pharmacy, and doctor
    prescribed.

    It's only .001, or .1%. So, if I take one gram, it turns out to be a milligram. That, and I use small needles
    currently before I apply my Minoxidil solutions (very small, as in .05 ml long).

    I have to say, I actually have new terminal hair from that alone. And I'm definitely not a young guy, by
    any standards (exempt compared to "The Donald").

    My right temple was actually much worse than my left (Both are Norwood three level, and neither side
    is that good).

    Try Estriol notre Estradiol.
    Estradiol way too strong (This is what wthever got via Alpicort F for his regrowth)

    Estriol is unlikely to work though, and in theory, by competing with the stronger Estradiol for the same receptor, it could lower total estrogenic activity, causing even greater hair loss.

    Yes I agree.
    But It's actually worth a shot to try it.
    To each their own, it can work for many and add a little something

    Alright. I finally made up my mind! I AM TAKING THE MEDICATION, starting tomorrow!

    Just got my hair buzzed to a #4 on top, and #3 on sides (from a #8 or above).

    Fucking hair flying every where. LOL (did this Saturday). I'm definitely going to
    start the medication tomorrow (or whenever it gets at my door!).

    For two reasons, I want to show pictures

    1. To see if there is actually any regrowth. Really looking at temples witht his. With
    dermarolling, plus all the shit I put in my hair, I'm hoping for some terminal hairs.

    2. So you guys can see how fast my hair grows (on top only, I don't use it on sides). This
    is from Latanoprost and Minoxidil combined.

    Good luck! Are you lightly derma rolling everyday before minoxidil, or 1.5.mm (and up) derma rolling with some light pressure once a week (no treatment that day), or both?
