    Since my thread got deleted in the last forum update, here's a little update from me. DSC_0053.JPGDSC_0049.JPGDSC_0050.JPGDSC_0051.JPG Horseshoe pattern is almost completely gone, a big thin V shape is left, crown back to around 80% density I'd say, temples are growing terminal and vellus hairs.I will try to get the pics from last post back or dig some older ones from my pc later on the week.

    Lower libido, which in my case would put me in the normal ranges I guess, no gyno yet, body hair looks a lot thinner and less which is nice since I'm a freaking gorilla, had a month of terrible brain fog 1 month into finasteride which cleared out for about 2 weeks, affected my lifts a little I don't feel that energized or aggressive when lifting but that is due to other factors besides the regimen,nothing else to report so far

    Thanks m8, ca turned out easy to find,better and around the same cost that progesterone and spironolactone would of cost me so I took your advice and switched them out while I was still on low dosages of them

    How long are you on estra and ca? Are you ready to fight feminizing sides?They will come.Dermarolling pointless imo,this regimen will regrow on its own. Good luck with regrowth.

    I would like to go with this regimen too,but I want to have kids. This regimen will very probably castrate you with longer term use. I hope you are aware of it.

    2 weeks on CA around 4 weeks on estra, I embrace the sides if you get where I'm going, I intend to cycle on and off ca in the long-run, going to run the regimen for about a year until I get decent regrowth then I'm going to cycle it off during my bulk next year and so on, I'm going to try to sustain the growth with dutasteride,and probably going to try the prostaglandin protocol during that time. About dermarolling i noticed that it really helped my itch I'm not sure how effective it would be for regrowth but eh

    Best of luck to you, I really really hope you make it. IMO you guys who can take such regimens are extremely lucky.
    Can't wait to see the results after 6 months.

    Do you take finasteride in addition to dutasteride the same day? I.e. finasteride 7 times a week dutasteride 2 times a week

    If you're not trans you are going to regret this regimen shortly. Very foolish of a cis male to use feminizing HRT.

    I've heard people say that anything under 100mg of spironolactone won't do anything hairwise and where do you get oral minoxidil :0? And gl with your regimen ofcourse
