  1. Excess sweating is a great point. Any insight? I am unclear on this
  2. Did you consult your doc? Please keep us updated on what you choose to do and the results you see. Like NEWHAIRPLEASE said, it's a personal choice!
  3. Good luck--right now it looking like it'll be quite good.
  4. I agree with Spex--definitely looking forward to seeing how this looks in a few months. Right now it's pretty great.
  5. That looks fine to me. But MPB is something hard to catch early, mostly because it's really hard to tell. If you're going to be anxious about it all the time, have a hair doctor look at it.
  6. I've been taking biotin for about two weeks now and haven't noticed any out of ordinary acne myself.
  7. From poking around on these forums, it seems like it changes from person to person. That being said, I would guess 5-8 months is when you get a really good idea of how your HT went.
  8. I read a post on the Gabel blog recently about finasteride. It cited a 10-year study that said finasteride was really reliably safe. Coming from personal experience, I instead think depression is playing a major role here. In any case, the libido is something that comes and goes. Think of this as a period where you really don't have to worry about sex and can focus on other things.
  9. Actually, I just came across this post (from the Gabel blog)--confirming the safety of Finasteride over the long term in recommended doses. So at the very least normal doses are totally fine; this makes me feel a little less worried about your experiment.
  10. I don't see how it could have any sort of permanent negative effect. Still, I hope you proceed with caution. Keep us updated.
  11. A hair doctor would be actually be preferable. I'm not sure what sort of blood tests could be run, but a hair doctor might be more familiar with the problem.
