At least, I haven't induced breast production yet but that will probably be one of my future articles to come if my hair becomes so long and beautiful so that you all begin to scorn me and not want to know about my precious locks any further. <curtsies>

I think I will have good and bad news in the fall. The good news is hair, bad - breast growth.
Sounds like the good news will far outweigh the "bad" since essentially hair regrowth requires at least exposure to the chance of breast growth. Maybe all of this is like the opposite game where you should hope for big bouncing boobs and that way, you won't get them.

The main thing is to keep my hair well after HRT. And also so that in 6 months the hair will increase in diameter and become of better quality. I'm not sure if this is enough time. Maybe I'll take a chance and try 8 months

The folks in Vegas will wait with bated breath to re-set the odds:)

I've got centimeter long vellus in the temples now so we'll see if it continues to develop terminally.
Lol. Remember what Bridge said about hair that you could kinda sorta see if you had just the right sort of light.... I look at my temples and something is happening but I still don't enjoy looking at what I might have. I have been sporting my increasingly long tresses outdoors and it is still not completely wind-proof but it's a lot better. Anyway, as Norwoody probably knows, it's a lot better doing the reverse male pattern baldness dance in front of the mirror with a hand-mirror by far....

Also, I should report that, after 4 months on dutasteride, my fitness and strength is improved. Albeit, I have been training consistently and hard, it still kind of proves a point if you ask me. 5ARIs, in general, are NOT feminizing, at least in my experience. I am NOT saying you cannot get side effects from them, but I am saying that it isn't going to make you just shrivel up into a woman. I think there is a figure that scalp testosterone roughly doubles on dutasteride. Perhaps most of the other tissues, like muscles and nervous tissue, also double in their testosterone locally.

I mean, Noah's hair should be good enough for pretty much any XY past the age of 18 or so and he's a data point. I still think that most breast growth can be dissipated just by stopping HRT for a few months. My disappointment is that I haven't found a way for XY's to, for example use Estrogel so that it both restores hair but without "turning on" full-blown feminization. For me, and I think for @bridgeburn as well, it was/is very helpful not to be looking over my shoulder at feminization to the point where it impacts or impedes hair regrowth. It's too much like being pulled in too many different directions. Ultimately, a person needs to have fun with this and experience a mind-set that historically has been closed off to males. Yes, you might like it and there seem to be changes in brain structure that might or might not impact sexual preference but that's sort of a bug vs. feature sort of thing.

New Ad campaign: finasteride. It's made for men. Are you man enough for finasteride?

They could list all of the T-increasing sides and it might end up being banned in sports. Hmm, it already is.

I do not consider Bridge to be an authority or a reference treatment. I like the Junely protocol. I will be using injections and small doses of Bicalutamide. He can't make it worse. And CPA is bad for health
There are no downsides in my protocol. It is cheap, allows you to reach any E levels, safe and not burdensome (1 injection every 1-2 weeks. There is no point in minoxidil, I have talked about it many times. I will not sit on this needle
To each their own and in derogation of no one. Bridge did compose several hundred pages of running notes with copious pics and he also was intact and that might make a difference. Honestly, I am wondering if castration could be a negative for many people based upon the depressing DM's that I keep getting and many of them are heart-breaking.

Bicalutamide is a questionable protocol for hair regrowth as is estrogen treatment.
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.
Where are the juicy pics, not that I doubt you.

Dont say that it's not questionable lol.

I'm using Dutasteride 1mg 4 months and I don't even know if this is helping. I will try to be more consistent with microneedle and minoxidil and maybe RU and growth hormone too but I share the sentiment of @Almas, you cannot just wait out your whole life hoping for something to work, because you might as well end up worse off than you were before.

My situation with my hair is not that terrible and I could live life with my current amount of hair but that's just a delusion I know that this mortal disease will keep gaining territory and I'm also considering some strogen cycle or some sh*t...

There is do much at stake and not everyone wants to risk it by not doing everything in your power...

I would love to see KeepCoolmybabies for some great hair pics. I haven't seen ephemeral kitten in a while either. We need to get the pic posting and protocol posting going more rigorously. Almas, you have been posting some, probably the most on this thread. People want eye candy and it is the best sort of evidence we have when produced over time. Remember how folks claimed Bridge was faking his results by posting backwards--that was lunacy but people are skeptical even of what they do see. There are too many angles and lighting techniques and even hair spray much less Toppik might make things look better.

I don't care what people think. People will say I'm crazy anyway if I decide to use something other than Finasteride. They will also say that I am not too bald to take drastic measures. My posts are for a narrow circle of people who deserve to have good hair, and not go bald on the big 3

Also, not saying that everything that Bridge or I did is necessary, we both did use substantial amounts of Estrogel on the scalp. All's I am saying is that it makes sense to copy people as closely as possible who had results. Now he didn't microneedle and I have but others are trying microneedling and adding oral min to the overall protocol.
