  1. Your crown is not bad at all. I would not go forward with a transplant now. I’d stick with meds, keep using Toppik and give smp a second look.
  2. I highly recommend him. Great results. I live closeby so I was able to go back the first couple days after surgery for washings. Good care.
  3. I’ve had sensitive testes off and on over the years. It started long before I took finasteride. The doc checked me out and said everything is fine. I wouldn’t worry. Just follow his instructions and I’m sure you’ll be fine.
  4. It’s normal. New thicker hairs are probably growing in.
  5. Ht growth doesn’t depend on finasteride. The drug can make it look a whole lot better tho. It can make an average ht look like a home run. Or a subpar ht look average. Whether you take it is up to you of course, but think about this, if you don’t take it and are not happy with your results, your doc will say I prescribed it why didn’t you take it?
  6. One word. Youth. Bald ppl look older than they actually are.
  7. Thanks for all the helpful replies. I was using rogaine foam for years with ok results. I switched to lipogaine and felt like it gave me an edge. Then when perfect hair came out I tried that and couldn’t use it because it gave me a rash. I went back to rogaine foam then that irritated my scalp as well. Tried going back a couple times and always irritatation. I just tried using rogaine liquid and so far so good. My plan is to stay on it as long as I don’t get a rash, and if all goes well try lipogaine again in the future.

    Ok guys I’ve been on it about a week now. Don’t know if it’s a placebo effect or what but I do feel a spike in testosterone similar to when I first started using generic finasteride years ago. We’ll see.

    I’ve decided to keep it and try it. Curious if it will give me an edge over the generic I’ve been using.
  10. What do you guys think is better ? And what brand ?
  11. I’ve been using it 2x a week. It seems to get rid of the “hair loss itch” I used to feel sometimes in my vertex area.
