Does ejaculation cause or contributes to Hair Loss?


Recommended Posts

I'm very curious about this because sometimes I hear it's a myth (it seems it's from the "most official sources") and other times I hear some claim it's true.

 

If anyone has the answer can give as well reasons to why it's true or false?

 

Is there any colerration at all between both phenoms?

 

So what exactly is the answer?

That is the most weirdest statements that I have ever come across, If that was the case Half of the Men on this Planet would be Bald almost 95% lol ! There is so scientific evidence to prove this so there is no reason for you to believe it. Infact I have read otherwise. Sex is a immune booster in lot ways. People deprived of having sex in their life are prone to Kindey Disease, Bladder Issues more then People who have a active, healhty sex life and of course it is scientically proven, people active with sex life tend to live longer then who do not ! But it definitely has no connection with Hairloss.

if you are doing it so much you have adrenal fatigue maybe, otherwise I think non issue.

go dense or go home

you shouldn't rub it in your hair

Ht #1: sure hair for men 21 years old unk amount of grafts. waste of money

 

Ht #2: 2005 with FUT with Dr Armani. Don't remember the amount of grafts. Great result re building the hairline and frontal thirs

 

HT #3: Jan 18 with Dr Doganay Fue: 2500 grafts, 600 crown, 400 into Fut scar, 400 temple rebuild, the rest into the front third to beef up the hairline. still waiting on results obviously

It can cause some loss of grafts if done within 48 hours or so of surgery. Sexual activity raises blood pressure and heart rate dramatically so having sex right after surgery is not advised. Same is true for weight lifting, grafts can pop.

 

Otherwise I think probably 99% of all males would be slick bald...:confused:

I created this topic because one of my friends is thinking about getting a FUE procedure yet he was extremely worried because he checked on the web and this issue appeared.

 

I thought he was joking because I wasn't getting the connection.

 

Then I searched by my own and I was really surprised: this seems to cause a real debate.

 

So basically all this is pure nonsense, right? The only time it can cause problems with our hairs is a couple of days post-op, right? Nothing more at all?

Yes. Nonsense. Along the same lines of wearing a hat causes baldness, but with a mild attempt of being scientific.

But doesn't sex and ejaculation cause the increase of the amount of DHTs in our body which are responsible for hair loss?

I have never seen a study that says that sex increases DHT. It may increase androgen testosterone temporarily, but that does not mean that there will be a meaningful increase in DHT. Even propecia increases androgen T (but reduces DHT). You lose hair because your follicles are genetically predispositioned to be susceptible to damage from DHT.

 

There are more qualified people to answer this but I believe that the testosterone in men rises and falls dramatically several times a day (with or without masturbation) if I remember correctly from college A & P a decade ago.

So basicallyu DHT doesn't increase at all and and the androgen T increases only during a very short amount of time then it simply disappears, not having time to do anything harmful at all.

 

Correct?

This topic needs to be studied further in the lab and confirmed either way with scientific conclusions supported by empirical evidence.

What do you mean? I thought by your and the responses of the others that there already existed scientific proofs this is pure nonsense...

 

you may want to look at this thread:

Masturbating, having sex, working out and various other activities can temporarily raise testosterone and DHT levels, however there is very little chance of it causing hairloss. Androgen levels fluctuate at all times throughout the day, but I have not seen any evidence that they can increase to a level that would cause hairloss.

DHT is a combatant to our hair follicles no matter what level however a lower level may imply that we have a longer time line to hold onto them.

So if that's the case... doesn't ejaculation really contribute to hair loss?

 

I would say yes it is possible ejaculation may play a part in hair loss,

but what in the world are you going to do about it...

give up sex to keep more of your hair?

That's a trade-off very few guys are going to make.

But that's the problem.

 

So does it contribute or not?

 

I mean, most are saying this is nonsense yet some say it's possible...

Tony I've read stories where it said castration in the early twenties entirely prevents development of male pattern baldness or if done later halts progression of balding.

 

Of course again, who is going to get castrated to keep their hair?

 

A couple of years back I did read a few guys post on another message board that they would consider castration to stop their balding, but who knows if they were actually serious.

Again, that's irrelevant.

 

I'm just asking if it causes or contributes or not to hair loss.

 

If people want to change or not their habits it's a different issue. I'm just asking if this is a myth or not.
