Default Need advice guys

I'm 23 and at stage 2A on the mercado chart (norwood didn't seem like an accurate depiction for me). I currently use nizoral shampoo twice a week and nioxin eod and have been for 3 years and also use rogaine foam twice daily (just started last month). I have yet to use finasteride for fear of sexual side effects. Have any of you used Ru58841 with good results? and at what point should i consider hair restoration? Any help would be greatly appreciated as my research seems to have hit a wall

You are too young fro surgery IMO. Also, if you won't even try finasteride, I personally think it makes you a poor HT candidate, Just my opinion, sorry for the gloomy news.

I would like to offer some advice. It would be great if you could post some pics of your thinning areas that is always very helpful. I cannot comment on the medication regimen as the majority of our patients use finesteride with great success. Look forward to seeing the pics. All the Best, Michael

You need to take finasteride, sexual side effects are very uncommon. It's a big mistake.

I want to offer many advice. It would be great if you could potentially post some pics of this thinning areas that is certainly always very beneficial. I cannot discuss the medication regimen as the majority of our patients make use of finesteride with fantastic success. Look ahead to seeing the particular pics.

Hey Mate,

The forum is a great place to gain knowledge from patients and physicians but it is difficult to do without pics. Could you post some? Thanks, Michael
