I agree with the gen consensus here that meds are your first option. It's hard to judge based on 3 photos. Family history is just one piece of the puzzle. Need to see more photos to search for any additional miniaturization (with hair wet helps) and your donor availability before even starting a conversation about eligibility for HT.

Best of luck with the meds research

I am now considering hair transplant since it has gotten so bad, the right side of my hair seems to be norwood 2.5/3 while the left just aggressively receded this Jan after using a Saw Palmetto spray which I never thought could worsen the situation. Left is now probably Norwood 2.

Since I've been seeing that hair loss needs to be stabilized.before going for ht. How would I know when it would stop when there's no one in my fam to be used as reference?

I also dont think I want to wait, since I am not exactly young anymore. I want to squeeze and enjoy the most out of my remaining "younger years". As my hair loss has massively affected me emotionally.

What could be my best option?
Definitely get more than two consultations without committing to surgery. During the process of consultation, you'll learn what would be the most practical options for your unique case. You have many options with medical therapy and other hair loss products. Try not to make surgery the first and only choice. If you must choose to have surgery, be sure to effectively manage your donor resource. At 29, start with a 'less is more' approach with regards to any surgery.

Thanks for sharing.
My opinions are my own. I am one representative of MyWHTC Clinic's European branch.
