Bicalutamide is a questionable protocol for hair regrowth as is estrogen treatment.This thread is not for readers of Dr. Rassman.
With aggressive baldness, only a complete decrease in T helps, half measures do not work. A partial decrease in T will not stop the transmission of the androgen signal and will not change the follicle environment so that I get hair growth. Raising E only works if your T is lowered to the female level
I know what will help me, because it is obvious that I have early aggressive baldness, in which even HRT does not always give the desired result. Microdosing E can work as support at best, but you end up with hormone levels that will lead to the same feminization in the long run.
Suggestions to experiment with questionable protocols reminded me of the story of Steve Jobs, who sought alternative treatments before he died of cancer
Minoxidil, finasteride, and microneedling isn't questionable. They all have good documented effects as shown in a multitude of scientific trials.
For me microneedling alone gave results and adding minoxidil did wonders. Estrogen at a high dose for a long time have helped but wounding with minoxidil is the main driver in my results. Regrowth of a bald spot and dramatic increase in density all over my diffused thinned scalp, regrowth of hairline after 20 years and improved hair quality. If I don't needle there isn't anything happening.
FWIW I really want you to get your hair back.
