  1. Hello everyone, This is my first thread in this forum and I hope that I get your opinions regarding my case. I have a thinning hair and it's been thinning gradually since 2013, however, I can still cover the balding areas with the my hair so it's somehow invisible. I decided to use Minoxidil 5% to keep what I have left of hair and also luckily grow some back if it's possible. I have started using Indian brand of Minoxidil 5% called Tinfal - One ML at night and one in the morning, for one month now. The first three days of using Minoxidil, I began noticing that I no longer have morning erections and also less urge to have sex. Day by day, I began experiencing blurry vision but it was not anything major. Then, I have completely lost the ability to have natural erections (without stimulations such as the use of hand), I also lost the interest in sex and masturbation. Three days ago, I began noticing my eyes get very dry in the morning and continue so that I feel irritated, unable to focus and in need to close them most of the time. Now I am more depressed with these side effects and I am sure it's from Minoxidil because there is nothing else I am taking such as medications. I am thinking of using an eye drop to tackle the dryness issue and bear the pain of low libido for a year until I get a good result from Minoxidil and then reduce the dosage of application to maintain the growing hair. I am not sure if this is a good idea, so please feel free to share your opinions and advices with me as they are highly regarded and appreciated. Thank you so much. T
  2. Hi Jetset, any updates after a year of your HT? I am considering having an HT with Dr. Bhatti, and I would be grateful if you could add a few more pics of your hair at the moment. Thanks bro.
  3. Congratulations, it looks like a very successful HT. I hope you reach your expected goal after 12 months have passed. Best of luck .
  4. Hi David, congratulations! It looks like a very successful operation. I like your results . I would like to ask you, how much does it cost for FUT and FUE per graft with Dr. Bhatti? Thank you so much.
