Hi all I’m 29 I’ve been on Min for 1 year and still don’t really see results. I am still slowly receding… I can tell in the texture of my hair it sucks. Do you think it’s a good idea for a transplant? I’ve tried finasteride and it gave me really bad sides. Min just isn’t working.. the first photo is me 3-4 years ago and the second is me today. Let me know what you think or if you have useful info. Thank you all! I have a big forehead and high hairline naturally but heavily considering a transplant.

What do you think about trying some other meds? I would like to check out the stuff from BidRx.com for example now. I am pretty sure that it is really good and helpful. Maybe you will find it interesting to you too, check it out and let me know what you think please

Try oral minoxidil first. Chances are few doctors would accept you as a candidate right now especially since you aren’t on finasteride. I’d try 2.5mg of oral minoxidil. If you get sides try 1.25mg

Possibly a shed. However it could also be natural progression of hair loss since you are doing nothing to address the androgens. If you aren’t going to take finasteride I suggest you at least start taking oral min then.

I wouldnt bother with topical min anymore it can irritate and cause inflammation in the skin which is very bad for the folicles. Get on a low dose oral min instead. Maybe try some RU58841 just for fun cause u aint winning this battle anyways. Thats what im gonna try next I believe.
