    Congrats to OP for presenting this issue with a somewhat neutral perspective. Alarming, since you are ready to go to extremes, just take the Finasteride and see if it helps you. You might be one that responds well, does not get sides and be able to keep a good amount of hair for the next 10-15 years or more. Then, 10-15 years later you might have a different perspective and not be so eager to give up your testes. Whatever you choose, choose wisely and leave room for turning.

    This is before my surgery my regiment was saw palmetto and nizoral shampoo, I started balding at 17 and I was almost 20 before my orchiectomy. My crown is extremely thin and I had annoying acne and inflammation in the scalp

    This is 3 months after orchiectomy , without estrodial, finestride or minoxidil,i only used nizoral at that time DSC_1195.JPG DSC_1490.JPG
    Iam gonna talk to my endocrinologist to start me on estradiol(estrogen) hopefully this month because I feel like sh*t right now and I might add topical minoxidil for a boost, honestly Iam still not pleased with the orchi results I think it only stopped further hair loss but the regrowth here is insignificant, and I will need to add few more things to get my full head of hair back, i will start with estrogen and monitor the result for 6 months if my hair didn't fully recovery iam gonna add minoxdil and if minxodil fails me iam gonna hop on finestride to destroy the 1% of dht that the adrenal produce if that didn't go well than I will need a surgery to remove my adrenal glands since they produce some testosterone(joke)

    because of severe hot flashes and brain fog plus the fatigue from low testosterone

    Anyone thinking about doing this please exhaust all other methods beforehand.
    I don't think there's any argument for attempting this as a first line of defense.

    Have you tried the standard protocol?

    Are you going to take the female hormone for the rest of your life?

    But didn't the process of removing the testicles contribute to this? That is, you can grow bald patches and then just stop taking hormones and your new hair won't fall out, no?

    These result are only from blocking androgens through testicles removal(orchiectomy), adding estrogen will result in further growth and if i stop taking estrogen down the road the improvement will just freeze but iam not gonna lose hair, i might shed few hair from hormonal imbalance but not permanent miniaturization from male pattern baldness, but what is the point of staying without hormone, it is not fun trust me

    Are you planning to remove gynecomastia in the future, which is likely to grow if you sit on hormones? Damn, I want to believe that I could live a normal life without taking hormones from outside

    OP even with your bald spot, you have great hair. If you do not continue to lose, you have so many options to style your hair so that the bald spot isn't visible. I hope you'll find the fine balance between keepi g your hair and not messing up your body. Good hair won't make a difference if the body is messed up.

    Its crazy what you have done but i think everybody here know how start balding young feels..im depressed and thinking in suicide everytime for this sh*t and i dont have any mental problems.
    However you seems pretty obsessive with hairs, you want a nw0 at all cost. You should try first with finasteride+minoxidil+ hair transplant, there were a lot of chances that you will halt your hair loss..

    If balding hits me at 25+ I won't go for this routine but I was reckless and frustrated to get my youth back, but now it's too late, there is no point of going back to Testosterone so why not go for nw0 in the coming year I believe it's achievable since some people went from nw3+ to nw1
