    Hello Together

    I have said several times: Finasteride is not a miracle cure, it maintains my status and has strengthened my minimalized hair. Where the hair is completely gone (crown) there is also no new growth, where there is no hair = no new hair.

    I am actually an opponent of daily medication. Yes, there are drugs that are necessary, but most of the time these drugs are used for a few days or weeks.

    Finasteride is a medicine that you take daily. If you want to delay baldness for many years you have to take it continuously. I think it's anything but healthy to stuff your body with medication.

    Every medicine will have consequences after years of abuse. There are no healthy drugs.

    Look; I have the bald gene in my body, in the long run I will be 100% bald, a Norwood 5 or 6 is my future.

    Fact is: You can't outsmart your genetic traits in the long run.

    And a very important point for me:
    Life is so short, I'm already thinking how many hours, weeks I've wasted thinking about hair loss.

    Looking for some additional advice:

    What is the risk of a massive unrecoverable shed happening if I drop oral Minoxidil after two years?

    I’ve been on topical Finasteride since October, I have lost ground but labs are all still the same. Is it a bad idea to try a low dose maybe M W F Propecia in the mix with and AI? I’m worried that the HCG prescription to recover from the oral sides is overpowering the topical.

    Thank you.

    Yes. I started with .5 daily and switched to topical after two weeks. Had the ache, reduced/watery, and lost morning w abruptly after always being the case even at 40.

    But I’m willing to try and mix it back into a routine feeling somewhat protected by the HCG. Not sure what to do about AI. A lot of people swear by an AI as a cure for Propecia sides. I have about two years worth brand Propecia sitting unopened in a medicine cabin.

    I actually haven't had morning wood on 1 mg of propecia in months. Switching to 0.5 mg actually made a difference which was unexpected as I didn't expect DHT/5AR levels to change quickly. I suppose DHT/5AR changes might be very tissue specific.

    I want to ask you, when and how did you notice that your hair loss stopped? Did you shed when you were losing your hair and after a few months using finasteride it stopped?

    Do you stop finastride once you are satisfied with the regrowth? How do you maintain your gains?

    I think he mentioned that he got watery semen but not sure whether that was temporary or not.

    @OP: Amazing results and I admire your way of thinking of and dealing with hair loss. Best of luck buddy!

    Less ejaculation. I don't know maybe it's Finasterid or my age.
    Otherwise no side effects.
    I am not 18-25 years old anymore.
