  1. Yeah theoretically it could. Oral min could thicken hair throughout, though for most guys your donor is already relatively good healthy hair, any benefit is likely marginal.
  2. Bayer's antibody is going to be a functional cure, ppl here need to look more into the prolactin pathway.
  3. Yeah it’s not really necessary to needle the recipient anyway, the surgery itself already created a lot more of the needling effect, and those grafts don’t really need the wounding right now. Goodluck you’re so close to the best months now
  4. I’m not sure brother, you could email the clinic and you’ll get the answer quickly
  5. Thank you! I think I waited about a month and a half to do the rest of my head other than the recipient. I didn’t needle the recipient until 3 months. Just personal choice and also paranoia.
  6. The math is simple with this. Hair loss is progressive, you will continue to lose hair, there is very little case for “stabilizing some day”. The other end of the equation is that compared to nature, hair transplants are mediocre. Even if you had an unlimited supply (which may be possible one day) you won’t achieve the same density, but the current truth is you have very little in your donor to get your whole head covered. So you’ll chase as you lose more, and eventually you won’t be able to get coverage. there are plenty of things to try now, and lots of good stuff coming in the future. I would explore med route and at least try it yourself over a year before making judgment on what it’s doing for you
  7. Yeah take a look at my thread I posted updates every month. I had most my growth by month 6 I believe and even by month 4-5 I could survive with fibers. Every situation will be different, so notning is promised, but I do think 9 months is a good amount of time to expect most of your growth. Good decision on prevention, as family history could be an indicator of how you’ll end up but not a sure tell. There are guys here who have siblings and even fathers with full heads of hair and they’ve been dealt shitty hair genetics.
  8. You could get a hair transplant if you have some more realistic expectations. Your best bet is to see a reputable doctor to try to estimate the placement and number of grafts that would be required.
  9. ^ the best answer I’ve seen yet when ppl ask this type of question
  10. You need to understand the problem is with androgens. Prp without managing androgens is a complete waste of money. If you don’t want to ingest orally, your options are a topical AA like fluridil or CB. These are known to metabolize in the body when they come in contact with your blood stream and break down to harmless byproducts. There is also a new product on the horizon from a Chinese company called Kintor, I wouldn’t hold my breath until then, I’m just suggesting you take a look at it and keep tabs on it. Your other option is topical dutasteride. I’ve seen blood work from a handful of guys now that show that the inhibition of systemic dht is only approx 30% due it’s molecular weight and vehicle. I would advise against a hair transplant until you’ve at least taken some risk and tried something. Otherwise the loss will slowly progress and you’ll be chasing with further transplants until some point you’ll be tapped out of donor
