So I went to the dermatologist after my barber noticed a bald spot on my crown. He didn’t seem to really care (as he was bald) but he wrote me a prescription for finasteride and minoxidil. However, my wife and I are about to have our first child and we want to have another one. She’s taking a strong stance on me not starting finasteride until we have our second kid. She’s worried about fertility. Is it worth starting on minoxidil then getting on finasteride in a couple years? I’m worried I won’t stick to minoxidil twice a day since I work shifts so it makes it really tough to apply.
You can use minoxidil once a day at night after a hot shower and leave it on until morning. That works and it is less of a headache.
