Even Bicalutamide does not slow down baldness, I drink it for the skin rather than the hair. Finasteride is also a dummy, it seems to me that since I started drinking it, I have an endless telogen outflow - I don't know. In general, with aggressive baldness, everything except HRT has no effect, it does not even slow down. After HRT I will try 150mg of Bicalutamide, but without any hope. I've been thinking about progesterone monotherapy for a while, but I'm not good at it.
The sad thing is that all of a sudden, I have MtF's contacting me and saying that their hair loss has not halted so, I thought that was a given. Even the hospital sites claim halt of hair loss. This is harder to prove that I had hoped. Some people tell me that they have reached very high pg/ml levels and nothing and some of them are under 25 so I have scaled back any definitive answers and I hurt for those without progress and I just don't get it. I have microneedled for two years but Bridge never did nor do many others on HRT and they get results. I wonder if sulfurotransferase is part of all of this and I seriously wonder if having an intact beard might be a hindrance but sulfurotransferase makes beards grow thicker so probably not.

I thought you were on 150mg bica and also how are you drinking it? You have some sort of liquid bica? that sounds strange to me

I also recently saw a member on this forum who stated that he was hyperandrogenic and did not benefit from HRT.
Well, a bullet to the temple is always an option

Perhaps it sounds different in English. In Russian you say "I drink Bicalutamide" because you take a pill with water :)
Now I am on 75mg of Bicalutamide, during HRT I will reduce to 25mg

Your translation also came through saying that finasteride was a "dummy" which is funny in English.

Might be a silly question. But does dutasteride actually work better even though it increases scalp T way more than finasteride? I trialed it for a year after 5 years on finasteride and around the end my co-worker said that the corner of my hairline was thinning. This made me immediately stop dutasteride and go back to finasteride and within 5 months it thickened up again. Could dutasteride take longer than a year to take effect? I'm scared of the increased scalp testosterone, I hear it effects the frontal region the most.

Dr. Rassman a well known Doctor who runs baldingblog.com claims testosterone doesn't affect the hair follicle and it's only when it's metabolized into DHT that it does. So I'm not sure what to think. Maybe you guys have some insight on this. I just want to use the best treatments.

I'm getting on really well with 1mg finasteride, 6.25 mg cypro ED, EOD sometimes, Estrogel 2 pumps in the morning and at night, as well as on the hairline, and minoxidil after which I guess would make it absorb better. My results are turning out to be really good. The growth is mostly in the temple corners, but it's a great feeling when my hair transplant Doctor had told me his design was as far as I could go.

I'll post comparison pics when things are looking more substantial.

This is what retrograde alopecia looks like, thinning at the back of the head and above the ears. People who have not been respond HRT usually have retrograde alopecia, which is a symptom of very aggressive hair loss that is refractory to any treatment. Even the fact that there is several times more aromatase in the back of his head does not prevent him from balding.
I have the best chance of not responding to HRT.

That might be just a fade

I thought so too, but no. Hair is smaller in diameter and miniaturized. Basically, if I answer HRT, the first improvement should occur in these areas, because they started to go bald last.

I don't know about that one, hair is often finer in those areas. Plus potentially having a headset on isn't helping it's appearance.

It may not be noticeable to others, but I remember well what my hair was like before. And tactile sensations too

The package with injections is delayed, I will start HRT in early July
