Default I started Finasteride

Ahh! I'm a little nervous, and wondering if I made the right choice.

I started Finasteride. I got the 1mb pills from ForHims.com. I only want to take one pill on MWF. I hope I have no sides.

I got a hair transplant 4 weeks ago, and want thicker hair. Can't wait to see results!

It's the right decision for the long term best interest of your hair. Stop stressing, you made the right call. You are better off trying it, if you're one of the small percentage that get sides then at least you know but odds are well in your favor that you'll benefit.

MWF is a good way of avoiding side effects, but it's best not to go into this too worried as the mind if a powerful thing.

That's true!! The mind is very powerful. I was very scared. It's been a week already. So far so good, and I don't know if it's too soon for side effects. Everything has felt the same. Sex has been good too. lol.

For me, when I started using finasteride, it felt like my testosterone spiked.
