Yeah it's a side effect (for men not wanting to look like women) but not related to strength in any way.no, i have the same side effect, i think from topical estriol. the aerola enlarges, and does not seem to return. (I am on 150mg raloxifene with 150mg silymarin for 2 months now).
I'd smash herthis is one of the most positive images in this thread. i'm going to run min, tret & prog topically. will report EOY.
i use canrenone and raloxifene to counter adrenal type steroids. maybe that will sub for the HRT.

hair is a small part of a larger biochemistry journey for me. e.g. mental, athletic, productivity optimization.

Tato, I don't have time to sift through 900 pages to identify when and where you posted pictures. Unfortunately, when I select your handle name to find your most recent posts, the webpage displays an error.
I guess I'm lazy.... ohh well, my loss.
No offense but your nipples say otherwise.
Bridgeburn? There is no sense in staying active on a hairlossforum, if you don't have any hairloss at first place. LolWhatever happened to the OP? Any one know?
Do you keep in touch with him?Bridgeburn? There is no sense in staying active on a hairlossforum, if you don't have any hairloss at first place. Lol
Tho he had to sacrifice a lot to get back what he once had... The most important is that he is happy, and yes, he is!
It took me six years to regrow most of my hair and that can be typical for many people apparently but age might have an effect but then again, I am no spring chicken, officially anyway.Some have accused me of not being persistent enough. But in fact, if you continue to go bald during treatment, it means that the scheme does not work. After 1,2,3,4 and 5 months on Bicalutamide I saw a deterioration, so there was no doubt that it was not helping me. Now I am on HRT and I will be evaluating the first results in 3 months.
There is a myth that you need to give treatment for at least half a year in order to conclude whether it helps. Sometimes these periods are extended to a year or two, which is even more absurd when we have to rush to treatment. In fact, more often than not, three months are enough. You should have had an improvement in hair quality and an increase in hair diameter before new ones began to grow.
Wow. I think that it is pretty well established that HRT can regrow a full head of hair in the best cases but we don't know exactly why hair restoration comes so easy for many and so hard for most.I've already posted several pictures of myself here, from every possible angle.
I even posted my blood tests, you have no idea what you're talking about, I've been posting things here for almost 1 year; I come here to expose information for free for people like you to challenge what I say, this is impolite.
I've posted pictures of myself here more than 3 times, you can check, don't be lazy.
Sorry, I won't post pictures of myself every time, because one or another user didn't see.
Believe if you want.
Talk is cheap, do something, i do, and u?
Pretty much all treatments are ineffective without either dutasteride or estrogen, when you go off them. I have so many treatments but oral min to me, seems far more effective than using it topically, which didn't do anything but maintenance for me.I think Noah's success in part may be due to the fact that he used Minoxidil (before starting HRT), which prevented permanent follicular death and scalp fibrosis. I even thought about oral minoxidil, but I am annoyed by its deceptive nature: it will grow your hair, but when you stop it, it will quickly disappear. There is an option to use it all the time, but I don't know ... I'll try to do just hormones
Retrograde hair loss to me, seems to be related to thinning but rarely full hair loss. As mine has come in, the fringe and sides look much better. I also microneedle my entire scalp and face once a week which probably helps.Your pattern is like mine. You answered HRT, that's encouraging. Typically, no one shows their hair from the back and side when sharing progress. I have not found any success stories of retrograde alopecia on HRT
Is your hair better now than in this photo? I hope HRT has improved the sides
