    Is Propecia( Finpecia) safe to use?

    i use finasteride for 5 years now. Now im thinking to get off of it and see what will happen. The reason why i want to do that is because i feel that my state of mind is too depressive, even tho nothing bad happens in my life. It could be my age ( 36) but i just tired of life and cant enjoy it anymore. Hard to tell what cause such way of feeling , Let you know later how it goes.
  2. shampoo dont do anything. Its marketing bs. finasteride and minoxidil. Thats it
  3. yes. Just wait a year and evaluate and go from there.
  4. well lets do the math. Average density 80-120 hair per cm2. You have approximatly 100 cm2 covered with 3000 grafts thats 30 per cm2. Lets say survival rate at best :90 %, thats 27 grafts per cm2.. So for "close to normal" density you will need to do the same 3000 transplantation one more time. Thats more ot less
  5. its normal. Also since you almost dont have vertex hairloss you will have a good result at the end. Plus you have a lot of grafts to go for a second operation if you would like more density. Just wait a year and go from there added: i also want to add that i think its not good to impant grafts very dense in one operation, i think it drops survival rate. If you want big density its better to split into 2-3.. etc operations.
  6. i had 2 ops with this doctor. You can check my thread. Only thing that i can advise is just stop thinking about it. Its done. Just wait a year or so .
  7. i dont know how many grafts i have. But whatever it is , its not much and i saved it for later. I was thinking about it, and thats why i went with only 1800 grafts last operation.
  8. well, density is nothing special. I have to keep hair long on top so it will look like that. I can make only certain hairstyles so they look good on me. Dont forget that i need to cover pretty big area with only 5,5k grafts. Also i need to keep donor area atleast 2 sm long so it will look OK. I need to compromise to look normal.
  9. im norwood 5 , i think on finasteride (1.25mg) ,minoxidil (5%) for 5 years I had 2 operations with Dr.Erkan Demirsoy in Istanbul. 1st operation (3686 follicles) in front part/ mid part/ hairline. 2nd ~1800: in vertex (~1200) and hairline (~600) i post pre 1 operation pics, and final result as of today . Later if you need i can post more pics ( post 1 operation, pre 2 operation, post 2 operation ). I had a ton of pics, just too lazy to edit them . Sry.
  10. Wow. You had very rapid hairloss ,in 5 years to NW7 , thats quick. Why you didn't start finasteride earlier ? I see that you have a lot of body hair, and that is great because you will need all of it to fix your hairloss. Good luck to you, i was nw5 myself.
  11. Only if you can collect good amount of body hair grafts. You can get ~4K grafts from the head max.. Rest should be body hair
  12. So far the only thing you lost is money and time and native hair. You need to go back on propecia and minoxidil foam ! Im norwood 5 myself and recently went for the second surgery to fill my vertex and add some dencity to the hair line. You will need app. 5-6K grafts to make things look normal. You need to look for a surgeon in Turkey , they have best price/ quality in the world. It will cost you app 7-10K euro.
