i am scared too much of impotence and no erections... i think i will go with minoxodil 1 month before and till 12 months after operation. and then also later probably.
as i readed shock loss is possible, but the hair grows back, or do i understand wrong? i talked with two guys who had hair transplant and have amazing results and didnt take finesteride, only minoxodil
Will shock loss hair grow back?
If shock loss does occur, it is almost always temporary. The hair that has been 'shocked' will start to grow back. This regrowth usually occurs anywhere from three to six months after the surgery.
Yes. It will strengthen native hair and reduce the risk of shock loss. Many surgeons recommend starting on it at least twelve months before any surgery. The Finasteride might also thicken your hair and help fill in those areas on top of your head where the hair is thinning but not gone.
I take mine in the morning. Just do whatever is easier for you.
So it’s best to take/try finasteride before a procedure? Does it strengthen the native hair and that’ll help with shock loss? Also what would the best time be to take finasteride, upon waking or before bed?
Well, firstly six months isn't really a great enough timeline to see results on Minoxidil. Second, if you're not on Finasteride or a similar DHT blocker you're making a big mistake. You're increasing the risk of shock loss, almost guaranteeing more future loss, and ignoring an option that might make you reconsider having a transplant at all.
