Doctor Rassman I have a question. I apologize before hand if the question is inappropriate, but a lot of people online say sexual activity, and masturbation causes hairloss in those with the genes with hairloss. Im not sure if this is true, but I have read masturbation increases prolactin levels and prolactin tends to increase DHT. I know sex and masturbation doesn’t cause hairloss by itself or else every male out there would be bald, but can it cause the hairloss to speed up in those with the Genes for hairloss? I would really appreciate your input on the matter. I might be wrong.
I rephrased your question in the title of this post. With regard to any association between Masturbation and hair loss, which men would want to give up their sex lives to slow down a hair loss process that is going to happen anyway? We have talked in previous posts that the genetically impacted hairs for hair loss, just die out (apoptosis) when their time comes. It is clearly associated with age, modified by the drug finasteride. I can’t say one way or the other that sex (which ever way you have it), will increase the speed of the hair loss, as I believe that is the crux of your question.
You need want to stop masturbating and see if this helps with the hair. Let us know how that goes, or you can search your topic from our previous posts
