I started on Fin three years ago prior to HT #1 simply on the advice of my surgeon.

Don't think it worked for me overall and also experienced sides.

 

Just was curious if anyone here on Fin or Propecia has actually had the HairDX test for Finasteride response done?

My test kit arrived today, and will send it back and wait for the results in a few weeks.

To re-Fin or not to re-Fin....

Got the results in today, the total triplet repeat score was 37, and the CAG repeat score for finasteride effectiveness was 19 (16 the lowest means more receptive for Fin while 29 on high scale means less receptive).

 

So although reluctant, I am restarting Fin after about 6 months of being off the drug.

Though I haven't loss any major ground I did notice some thinning behind my transplanted area on one side which at first I though might be shock loss.
