    I really want you to start taking dutasteride because I want your take on the side effects. It’s pretty obvious the side effects (low libido, weight gain, Gyno) is all a result of the elevated Estrogen levels. That’s why when people take Estrogen blockers they usually get rid of the side effects but then raise the Test which in return makes your Hairloss start again. So there has to be a happy medium. I am planning on ordering Arimidex to try to find the perfect dosage in order to take off my sides and keep my hair. Some people are just more prone to Estrogen levels being elevated. That’s why many don’t expeirnce side effects until many years down the road, because their body finally can’t support all of the elevated

    So you’re still just dermarolling and using Zinc shampoo? No minoxidil?

    That's fine haha, I'm actually sort of close to trialing out 0.5mg dutasteride twice weekly although I'm still on the fence since it's hard to say how much of a benefit I'd actually get for the increased side effects. Currently on finasteride I just ejaculate less and occasionally it is watery, pretty minimal and doesn't bother me. My only concern with dutasteride is 5AR1 and its potential impact on the brain, I did however find a study showing it had inhibition of 5AR1 had neuroprotective effects on animals which is actually quite the opposite of my concern but I still need to look into it deeper.

    @MyThinningConfidence Can you tell me how intense your needling is? Do you bleed easily? Do you press hard on your stamp?

    @MyThinningConfidence I could have asked, but do you think that it is possible to regrow hairs on NW0 area with dermapen, or it just works better on lets say NW4?

    July 3rd, getting pretty thick now but definitely not perfect. My crown does still have a thin spot which is evidenced by a few outdoors pictures I took where my hair is wet in the rain. Aside from my crown my hairline still needs some work and I'm lacking density at the nape of my neck on the right side oddly which makes longer hair seem crummy and uneven. I uploaded pics of this forever ago but it's even more of an issue now as there is a big chunk missing at the back, I'll upload some new pics sometime.

    I'm not using a stamp anymore, I'm using a Derminator at 2.5mm and I never really bled much using any of the microneedling devices.

    Probably not but I'm also not sure if I even ever had hairs there to begin with. Hairline has been regrowing from the middle outwards. There are some rather long vellus hairs around my hairline which appear to turn terminal over time but beyond that it's just completely barren.

    edit. I added a photo from last month so you know what I mean.

    Microneedling but you'll likely want to do most things in conjunction, the main things to use -
    finasteride, microneedling and massages as they work synergistically. You'll also want to add in zinc pyrith or Nizoral if you're dealing with dermatitis or itchiness of the scalp.

    My crown has less density anyways but I just needle it like the rest of my hair, the Derminator just slides through fairly effortlessly. The hair doesn't get damaged.

    How is that possible with 2.5mm? I bleed like a madman with 1.5mm and even 1mm.
    Do you not use alot of force?

    Bro, this picture in particular shows how far you've come.

    Obviously, there is some styling going on to add volume, but just wow. Well done.

    I've been on dutasteride and derminator for 2 years with continued diffuse thinning and recession. You're post gave me some hope. I'm adding deep scalp massage and going to up my derminator from 1.75 to 2.5. Not expecting your crazy level of results, I'm clearly not a great responder. but might as well try. Best wishes

    Fuck man, zero regrowth after 2 years? Did you have a initial shed when you started dutasteride and did it ever stop?
