    You seem very affected by hair loss, as most of us are. I think you should begin to consider alternative, stronger options.

    I’m not going any further on the safety profile than Finasteride oral/topical maybe add some RU back.
    Oral minoxidil seemed risky two years ago.

    The Finasteride already tanked my serum DHT to 12 from 27.

    As much as this is destroying my life, I’m not trying to become a women.

    Going to keep on the dermatologist recommendations as well in the off chance this is more than just male pattern baldness.

    Maybe can stabilize enough for a hair transplant app some point. Just never imagined so much hair could fall out everyday.

    There are more powerfull drugs that wont turn you into a woman.

    I understand your decision. It is your call after all. If you'll have any future considerations into what I am suggesting, feel free to talk to me. Good luck.

    Why not dutasteride? RU is an experimental drug and switching to dutasteride from finasteride seems the most obvious choice if safety is what you are concerned about, finasteride wasn't strong enough to halt my baldness, it may not be enough for you either.

    I’m trying not to make the mistake (again) of switching treatments too fast.

    my thinking is that if I’ve had zero response to Finasteride even a slight slow down in shedding that it is unlikely I’ll see a better result jumping on Dutasteride only a month or so trying Propecia. I was optimistic that the year of topical Finasteride was maintaining but that fell off of a cliff the last two months.

    I am considering STEM cell or something like that

    No need to take the piss out of the guy simply because he is worried about his hair at 40, it may not be as bad as he thinks it is but it's obviously upsetting him.

    If you look at me too you wouldnt say I am balding. Early diffuse thinning is hard to spot.

    You guys are falling for his games. Attached is a picture he posted a week ago showing it in APRIL of this year. (During April of this year he was posting tons of photos with his hair separated and parted soaking wet saying it was over/freaking out about how bad his hair looked... of course he never posted this picture at the time.) Now he is comparing his hair today to April as if it got a lot worse and it was “okay” in April ... lol I mean look that that head of hair.... that picture is two years into treatment too.. I feel bad for you man but this site needs to ban you to give you your life back and limit your ability to freak out over something this ridiculous.

    He has no balding. He is trolling Norwood -1 with great hair.

    That was June. I’m losing well over 500 hairs a day and I’ve thinner everywhere. Yes that looked good. This is today.

    You are the wrong person to criticize you aren’t thinning at all and have already had progress from treatments. I have gotten much worse with each treatment.

    I am a nw2/2.5 at the age 27. I lose several hundred hairs a day as well, you are 40 and have a thick nw0 with no balding.

    Funniest thing I've ever seen. Two full heads on a balding forum arguing over who is more bald.

    OP has great hair still, but it's clear he is starting to bald.

    We shouldn’t be fighting on degree of balding but help one another to over come hair loss.

    I agree. I’ve never said a critical thing on here. This should be a place no matter how soon or how bad we try to f*****g help. Yeah I’m tripping. I was living hair god life 2 years ago and now I’m watching myself decline daily.

    Some of us vent our hair loss struggle on here. Those with greater hair loss seeing the venting might jump to conclusions there isn’t hair loss. Bluecyclone started off with super great hair density but that last pic he is really diffusing. I’m a diffuser and it feckin blows!

    U are dumb as fck his hair is wet and there are literally no signs of miniaturization or thinning for that matter, he is not balding the sooner u realize it the better because his hair will not get any better than this.
