    Are you even diagnosed with male pattern baldness?

    Yeah buzzing your hair is great for these reasons.

    You can clearly see what you’re dealing with.

    I already knew that I’m having Norwood 6/7 pattern and buzz cut just confirmed it.

    But i mainly buzzed it cause of the heat and cause i got tired of how thin my hair looks.

    as for treatments, I’m not going to take any AA’s, finasteride had devastating effects on my health.

    Thankfully close to 2 years after discontinuation i can tell that most of my sides have resolved and the ones i still have seem to be improving.

    so I’ll just focus on taking good care of myself, exercising and eating right.

    I’m hoping that it would slow down hair loss for me, although i definitely don’t count on it.

    I think that most likely I’m going have to start shaving by the time i reach my 30’s.

    well it is what is, feel happy for folks who can maintain or regrow on fina with no or minimal sides.

    i mean i got my fina prescription from a derm, so yeah.

    And i don’t need any formal diagnosis to tell me that I’m thinning, it’s pretty obvious lol.

    I don't think that diffuse thinning with an intact hairline is androgenetic. I remember seeing a man on the street with it and at first it looked like he was thinning on top. But I noticed that he is thinning ALL OVER, not just on top. This is other type of hair loss and not male pattern baldness.

    I think it is more of a subtype of male pattern baldness. Diffuse thinners often respond well to 5ARs.

    For those that are sharing helpful perspectives, thank you.

    I know I’m having male pattern baldness issues in a N7 diffuse pattern. Hairline hasn’t quite receded but has thinned out a great deal. I know male pattern baldness is main cause but in the past I was regrowing enough to at least keep the front density. I’m losing that battle.

    After about 2 wasted years on topical Finasteride I’m suffering through Propecia and sides again, trying to make it 6 months. I think I also need to fight T.

    have RU and considering CB. Either way I know androgens even with low DHT are wreaking havoc. Only bright side is that I’m jacked at 43 with 10% body fat. Propecia hurting my libido and EQ though.

    still using 1mg Propecia ever night. Still getting some sides but managing, haven’t noticed any difference at all, still thinning and the hair that remains is now wispy and lighter.

    also the hairline is eroding. not a just temple recession pattern but thinning out center etc.

    Keep popping those pills and forget about hair loss for 2 years. Then re-assess. And im sure you'll keep what u have now.

    Keep reminding urself that u have a very good chance of maintaining on finasteride for years to come. Thats how I stopped obsessing over hair loss and taking 43 pics every day.

    Has a derm said that you are thinning in a diffuse NW7 pattern?

    It's androgenic. It's is called DUPA (diffuse unpatterned alopecia) and nothing can stop it, absolutely nothing.

    I have this curse at only 22 years old

    Just seems crazy for DUPA to start so fast but my thinning is just about everywhere with more noticeable miniaturization at the hairline. In the 4 years since this started hair has changed completely and density is way worse. Going to stick with the Propecia but so far noticed no change.

    does everyone notice the frontal diffuse loss? I’m not sure if it can recover shedding 200+ only most are now shorter than 3 cm before they were all long...

    the only thing that's crazy is you.

    you dont need pills for your hair my man, you need them for your brain.
