There is generally no connection between having gynecomastia and developing breast cancer in a 21 year old male
Would you happen to know if my frequency (1x/day vs 2x) is appropriate given my circumstances of minimal circulating androgens?
Minoxidil has nothing to do with circulating androgens. The hair produced from minoxidil was originally seen as a drug side effect when the drug was use of high blood pressure management. The typical Trans Women take more aggressive treatments for blocking their androgens.
I always see people talk about it, how people who go bald young is a sign of bad genes or people going bald young saying they have bad genes. I mean i guess it’s not cosmetically ideal for keeping a youthful aesthetic but does balding say anything about the “quality” of your genetics or what
It means that you have balding genes, not bad genes. If you develop uniquely crown balding, there is an indication that you are at a statistically greater risk of heart disease and stroke, I guess that is not good genes. I have pure crown balding and have some atherosclerosis of my coronary arteries.
Is hair miniaturization always male pattern baldness?
Mostly miniaturization indicates hair loss is probably genetic in both men and women.
Is it better to do it sooner or does it really matter when you undergo surgery? do I need to rush into it or will the results be the same if I wait a couple of years?
Timing of the surgery is a personal decision. The question is if you are bald, can you handle it, or , if you are becoming balder, can you handle it? If you are over 25, a hair transplant can be an option. Will getting your hair back now make a difference in your life?
I don’t know if I am just super conscious but I started to lift again about 6 weeks ago and it seems like there is much more hair in the shower falling out than before, isn’t it true that lifting will release more DHT or something? or am I just panicking
Wight lifting without taking any medications or supplements, will not cause an increase in hair loss. In fact, it may reduce enough of your stress to take the stress off of the hair loss.
Yes, both can simultaneously. That means that if you have DUPA, you should never have a hair transplant because the grafts will eventually fail sooner than later.
To find out if you are really losing hair, get a HAIRCHECK test (https://baldingblog.com/haircheck-test-how-it-is-done-video/ ) and this will actually measure the loss and then you can follow what happens over time with treatment.
I took finasteride for almost 30 days exactly around june last summer, but quit due to noticing gyno coming on, once i hopped off the gyno has stopped progressing but i still have a slightly watery semen and just last week i started having ball ache, it started very mild but it’s just been getting worse and worse. i’m going to try to get recommended to a hormone specialist or something on monday. has anyone else had a new side effect come on this late after stopping fin use? should i be very worried or is this just something minor? i haven’t had any ed problems or libido problems that i can notice, but i’m afraid that’s next
There are many causes of testicular pain and if you are off finasteride for 7 months, it is likely that you have one of these other causes. See your family doctor
We continue to see over-harvested donor areas where those doing the hair transplants take out so much donor hair that they start making the donor area bald. In this man, clearly the hair transplants also failed as you can see from the top of his head. The donor hairs were also taken from his neck area which is not permanent hair.
