As i said before, you gonna recover up to 1.5-2 Norwood with this regimen.
Yep fair enough. There are a number of topics on here (and particularly on hair loss help) where people have chronicled their experiences with similar regimens which you may want to check out.id be on spironolactone regardless of my hair loss, its a core part of HRT for trans people. it just happens to be a nice side effect that it helps with my hair loss.
i may switch to dutasteride after my supply of finasteride (7 more months) is used up but its about 5x as expensive for me right now which is a pretty big deal for me.
Okay so i found an old pic on my phone of just before starting treatment (before pic is around dec 20th, same hair as in the first pic of my post except in harsher lighting) and i tried to recreate it. as you can see there has for sure been significant improvement and i expect it will only get better in a few more months. i almost want to classify myself NW4 now instead of NW5. idk more pics later showing all the new growth/small hairs just coming in.

yes it is definitely risky for men to take but i am trans so the sides are pretty much all positives for me
as for sides i was not on just spironolactone for very long but estradiol has killed my sex drive, its much harder to get/maintain an erection now, and im sure to develop boobs in the next few months. definitely not recommended unless youre in a similar boat to me.
