I am in my early twenties and am in Type II of my hair loss. I started losing here about 2-3 years ago and in the past year it is becoming quite noticeable, i am losing hair at a faster rate then ever and am concerned that I will end up like my father (type 6). I have been staying away from Propecia and Rogaine due to their irreversible side effects concerning sexual dysfunction. Is there no viable alternative other than hair transplant for me?
Side effects are not proven irreversible from Rogaine and Propecia, but if you don’t want to try either of the two FDA approved hair loss medications, that is your choice. Unfortunately, hair transplantation is the only permanent solution at this point if you do not want to manage your balding problem with medication.
