  1. I wouldnt be concerned about the cowlick here. Your whole head is kinda "thin". Its hard to tell but your cowlick looks 100% ok for now
  2. Here i am 5 months later. So the first month i had a mild testicular pain that lasted almost 2 weeks. It never returned and i m 100% fine, 100% no sides atleast that i can note. My libido i stronger than ever. So about results. I have no progression of hairloss which is great. I might have noticed some new hairs popping out too. But i think this is mostly because of the systemic absorption. I m almost 100% sure i have enough of this drug in my blood to be compared to 0.5mg daily oral dose. I was trying 2 times a day, 1 time but high dose etc etc. Because of its light molecular weight, it easily goes systemic. But then again, minoxidil is even lighter but doesnt go too much systemic. That means we either need to apply: high density solution (example from some study, they did 0.2ml of 0.25% fin which idk hhow was it possible to apply only 0.2 on scalp) or solution that contains 0.2mg of fin per 1 millilitre. We dont know if dose as low as 0.2 would do the work but one thing is for sure, at worst (in my opinion) you will absorb 0.1 which wont do much in blood. Thats how i think about it. I still keep on applying it daily (1mg of fin), and i will as long as i feel ok because its more of a psychological thing for me, i feel safer using topical. If you had sides on oral and cant do anything else to save your hair, i suggest doing really low topical fin concetrations like 0.2mg per 1ml (0.02% i think).
  3. If i wasnt aware of what can cause my brainfog in the past i would ve been so scared because i d think it was from fin now. I have issues with snoring and waking up multiple times during night which is causing brainfog for me. It all goes away once i rest enough
  4. if you are on oral fin, everything on top of that can be only beneficial. Yes, i compounded it myself with the same compounds rogaine uses, but without minoxidil. Its a typical formula for any topical that is based on PG and ethanol
  5. im on a home brew topical fin and i have 0 side effects. I did have ball ache for a week but it went away. It could ve been something else too. I m also micronedling too
  6. Dont buy this. If you really want to buy more than 2 years for your hair, you need to get on fin. It sucks to be exposed to such chemical but thats the only way. No bullshit. You can be on minoxidil or other stimulants but they wont stop hairloss. That will just make your hair look denser, yet you are still losing hair at the same rate.
  7. even buzzcuts have the 3D look which scalp tattoos dont. The youtuber Fouseytube did one too and it just didnt look natural. Different folks different strokes
  8. That is just not true. I think its more of a 50 50 chance. My mothers side is all full of hair yet 2 of my brothers are getting bald in their 30s. Regarding this guy. You def. have an androgenic alopecia, but its really early. That doesnt mean you will lose all of your hair in a year. you might lose it at your 20s, 30s or 50s who knows. but its something coming at you. I wouldnt recommend you go on anti androgens this early. Wouldnt recommend minoxidil either, but if your hairloss starts being really aggressive then thats probably the only option you have
  9. i have chronic middle night insomnia too bro. I wake up after 4 hrs every night, at the best 5.5hrs. It used to be a lot worse. How are you doing now?
  10. Also lad, you have lied about the existence of multiple studies about fin causing low T in long term use. There is literally one study which is not even done well yet there are plenty of 5year studies that prove my theory about the slight increase in T. There are many factors that can influence your T levels and 0.3mg of topical didnt cause that
  11. Many people did bloodwork before and after Fin, even after years, their T remained slightly elevated. Theres one crazy guy who does experiments on himself with steroids, anti androgens etc etc. He proved that his T levels increased, and in his case it negatively affected his hair because he is sensitive to T. His T increased by 20% after taking dutastiride for a year or so
  12. I have understood that i added too many zeros on the number as soon as i ve written the replay. So you applied 0.3mg on your scalp. You probably cant absorb systemically more than 5% of that dose unless you have open wounds on your scalp. Not to mention that unless you have a buzzcut, a lot of topical will be stuck in the hair and not touch the scalp. I have zero issues with a whole miligram but i m probably using a different solvent. You mentioned using a liposomal gel fin. I m using a classic Propylen glycol ethanol water solution. I know that minoxidil is not the same drug as fin but, minoxidil can be absorbed into blood through skin from 0.8 to 4%. And thats with a high ethanol concentration. You would need to absorb atleast 0.2mg into your blood to have a significant change in serum DHT...It just doesnt add up to me
  13. I m not trying to fight. I m challenging my and your knowledge about this topic. By doing that i m either improving my knowledge or yours. There is clearly something unclear with what you have mentioned about your T levels. Not to mention that you have 99% did the ECLIA to measure your levels if you let your doctor choose since the LC MS MS is more expensive and not easily obtainable methodology for measuring hormonal levels. One thing. If you took the topical dose of finasteride of 0.03%, that means your overall dose of this drug on your scalp was 0.0003mg. You have gained sides from topical application of 0.0003mg? Can you understand my skepticism ?
  14. Also there are 5 year trials where men who took finasteride at worst, had a T level of a placebo group. Even after 5 years, people still have elevated their T by a small amount. The "study" you have linked has deleted resources and its impossible to find the actual study. This study is not present on boston UNI website nor the other resource path
  15. I am sorry that i have been a little bit rough on you, thats my bad. But you came in here claiming this drug took 40% of your total test and how 0.03% topical solution got you a brainfog. Thats really a huge jump to the conclusion. I could bet my life that you didnt get sides from 0.03% topical solution, i m that convinced. BTW if you measured your hormone levels with ECLIA, then those numbers you posted dont mean anything
