On the latest picture, your hair actually seems pretty fine!
Ofcourse us balding men can see that you have miniaturized hairs along the hairline - but for 90% of people, your hair looks good mate.
Keep up the treatments and you will probably have a lot of years without any problems. I myself, was scared shitless 2 years ago when i first started finasteride because i was approaching Norwood3v, my temples where gone (still are) are the middle in front was starting to go too - finasteride have maintained my hair ever since, and thickened my crown to the point that there is no bald spot at all. I was 23 when i started Finasteride, now 25. I have had zero problems except for watery semen the first weak. That went away as quickly as it started.
Good luck friend!

Good move going on finasteride. It’s not a miracle and usually it maintains more often then regrows hair. I’ve had zero sides whatsoever and I’ve been on for over a year. It looks like you would most
Likely go bald if not for finasteride, in my opinion. Good choice , don’t think about it

Keep us updated man. Hoping you get some ground back. Is it usually the case you go “back in time” 6 months to a year? And that’s usually the limit to regrowth on finasteride

You’ll be fine bro, stick to finasteride for a full year regardless of whether you think it’s going badly or not. I’m 24 now but got on around 21. My hair is virtually the same and I have more sex now than ever before. I have diffused thinning so not only am I losing the temples, I was getting a f*****g bald spot in the back. Now, with the way I style my hair, you can’t really see either.

I think you will be able to maintain for years, but don’t expect to grow anything back. If you’re okay with the way your hair is now (you should be) then you’ll be fine. You’ll also learn different styling techniques to make your hair look the best it possibly can.

Did your diffuse thinning improve on finasteride? I’ve heard it helps there compared to temple growth. Might need some oral min to push you into regrowth territory

It didn’t improve, it may have gotten slightly worse in my opinion. But, according to photos, it’s close to unchanged in the 29 months I’ve been on it.

You can check my finasteride update out if you’d like. It’s a lengthy thread on the “tell your story” section. Leave some feedback if you do

Just reread this and want to clarify. When I said “I have more sex now than ever before”. I didn’t mean to flex. I meant I have zero side effects and my confidence is high. I believe a lot of those side effects are mental and could be due to low confidence.

Well hello everyone,

Thank you all for the words of encouragement and for sharing your experiences. Next week, I’ll have reached 2 full months on finasteride. It’s still too early to see any results from it, but thought I’d give a quick update again.

Finasteride has been good to me. Like I mentioned earlier, knowing I’m finally on it has put me at ease about my hair. No sides whatsoever, and I think my hair looks pretty much the same. This is a good thing, because it was getting worse fast and I was noticing changes each time I styled it. Top is still a little thin, and this is visible in certain lightings. But...it feels a little thicker when I run my hand through it than I remembered. Maybe it’s just my imagination or the fact that it’s growing longer.

Here’s my update pic (with unwashed hair again, sorry). Feel free to comment your thoughts.
