    Continue taking CPA until your bicalutamide arrives. It will create a better base for you to start; starting with castration-level T and female ranges of E is ideal.

    take estradiol with bicalutamide, DONT take cpa or spironolactone with them. also if u want u can add finasteride or dutasteride

    try to taper off of cpa if u are taking more than 25mg currently, in prostate cancer they observed at doses of 100-300mg, there was PSA flares after discontinuing the drug immediately. Or just drop CPA after 1 week of staying on bicalutamide, thats my recommendation.

    That's good. Now you might want to revisit primary school and learn how to speak, write - basically how to communicate well and not be a douchebag.

    (we've talked before as well, but Iirc you're the first person whole reply/comment I've disliked)

    Everyone remember to drink PLENTY of water daily and exercise to lower risk of blood clotting, it'sreally important to keep the cells from stacking together, these are some natural blood thinners as well to help with circulation

    Turmeric
    Ginger
    Cayenne peppers
    Vitamin E
    Garlic
    Cassia cinnamon
    Ginkgo biloba
    Grape seed extract

    That had happened to me as well. But at that time, my hair condition was improving. I used to think that they (the tiny white bulge) are dead, shrunken hair follicles though, I never knew what it was.

    and the norwood-1-hairline (from Estrogen, progesterone and more) in the mid 30s is unbelieveable and cool too..i look only on the heads of women.because nearly every man in my age has less hair and short hair...

    So, Maave replied today on reddit.
    Since he's still taking bicalutamide (increased it to 100mg), he must be doing well.

    BTW, what type of hair loss did he has?

    I am attempting to cut down my sugar intake; it’s difficult though! It will be useful in the long-run so I have to put more effort into it. I might start taking turmeric again, though... And ginger!

    I am lucky in that I don’t have a visible Adam’s apple! I have a neck similar to a woman’s... Androgyny is key!

    I don’t agree with his stance on hair loss being ‘to use finasteride/dutasteride’; he is saying this based on himself using bicalutamide and raloxifine to treat his non-binary identify.

    I have a question: what products can be used to moisturise the scalp? My scalp is becoming increasingly drier, which leads to itchiness, due to the lack of sebum being produced...

    have you tried using oils in your hair to prevent the scalp drying out ?

    I will try that... I will definitely avoid coconut oil and castor oil; those oils are just bait for losing hair! My scalp is starting to produce dry patches... Although, how has your experience been so far?

    finasteride 5 mg is very small. this dose does not work. Avodar 0.5 is also small. I have always taken either 3 avodars or I divide finsteride into 4 parts and I take finasteride every 2 hours. single dose does not work. it doesn't work for me otherwise. Why do you praise bika so much? Is there a Bike result like that of bridgeburn? of course not. let's talk about the bike in half a year. when you test it enough. not long ago there were many who took spironolactone. but one spironolactone is too weak. Do not say that it makes no sense to take сiproterone and spironolactone. You have not tested it and do not know how they work together. I see how it works. I think bika alone is also weak. those people who have taken spironolactone before have also said that it works. and now they say that spironolactone does not work, but bika works. bica raises testosterone. he does not act on the receptors. but acts on the bones. and although they say that the cpa acts on A.R. but it seems to me the worst of all is A.R. finasteride and avodart acts if taken in small doses.
    You say it makes no sense to take сiproterone and spironolactone?
    Thanks for your advice.
    but you speak all of the theory.
    and I speak from practice.

    The theory is tested in practice.

    a lot of things written on the preparations. for example, on every medicine there is always a side effect of hair loss. so it is written there. so I see the point of combining antiandrogens. for others, it may not work.

    "As antiandrogens, the SAAs have largely been replaced by the NSAAs and are now rarely used in the treatment of prostate cancer, due to the superior selectivity, efficacy, and tolerability profiles of NSAAs."

    "Accordingly, a study comparing the efficacy of 50 mg/day bicalutamide versus 300 mg/day CPA in preventing the PSA flare at the start of GnRH agonist therapy in men with prostate cancer found that the two regimens were equivalently effective."

    "Bicalutamide has been found to be at least as effective as or more effective than flutamide in the treatment of prostate cancer,[38][39] and is considered to be the most potent and efficacious antiandrogen of the three first-generation NSAAs.[83]"
