Should I Go Ahead And Start Propecia? (pics Included)

I'm debating if I should start Propecia/finasteride now. The side effects and horror stories here scare me (the shedding, watery semen, skin redness, and especially gyno).

I'm about to turn 29. Male Pattern baldness does run in my family. Thyroid issues run in my family as well (not sure if that matters). I had some bloodwork done a few months ago and my Thyroid looks fine. I didn't see anything about DHT levels. But I saw that my Testosterone was around 350, and the recommended range was between 300-1000, so I look to be on the lower end. I also still suffer from light acne (but maybe due to a bad habit of picking at my face). Let me know if any other info will help.

Here is a comparison from two years ago to now. You can kind of use the freckle as a point of reference in my left temple (in the right side of the photo):

Here are more photos of my hairline now:

If older photos will help, here's an old thread where I was monitoring my hairloss two years ago which includes photos from my past:

while you have bald eggs, you won’t stop it, only spironolactone works, it is advisable to take with estradiol. I took everything that is possible, but only spironolactone works in men as it should.

I mean, so as not to poison yourself with finasteride, this does not work! Only spironolactone!
