Concerned About Potential Hair Loss And Would Like Another Opinion

Recommended Posts

I felt the same way as you. Nothing to worry about yet. just take pics every few months and once you spot notable differences start with something. Thats a normal whirl, i have the same kind of whirl for few years i ve been tracking my hair.

So its been a few months sinceI last posted picture, not to mention its been a year since I first started worrying about balding.

Here are some pictures of my crown from today

For comparison here are some from a year ago

So while I am not certain, I don't see much of a change comparing those as well as the ones I took in in the months in between now and a year ago. I am not going to even bother with pictures of my hairline, as that hasn't budged at all on the past year

 

That said, I am kinda worried that I am losing density all over now. Been shedding a lot still on and off. I took some pictures where I parted my hair to see if it looks bad or not, and I am worried it looks quite thin. However I may be freaking out about nothing. I honestly don't know anymore.

I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but perhaps you should speak to a counselor about this. You may suffer from a form of body dysmorphia and slight OCD. It’s definitely not healthy for you. I’m a huge proponent of mental health. Wish you the best.

Yeah, at this point probably. I am actually seeing a therapist now due to my anxiety, and they are pretty sure I have OCD at this point. BDD is probably likely too. Therapy has been helping as I haven't been posting and obsessing about my hair as often as I was back in April/May/June/July... but I am still finding myself worried and freaking out from time to time.

I guess now I am at the point where I am still worried about the fact I keep shedding a lot of hairs, and I swear my hair feels thinner than it used to... but that could just be my own anxiety causing me to convincr myself myself it felt thicker in the past.

I guess the stress over this can't be helping, and I did find out I had a Vitamin D deficiency a few months ago that hopefully improved with supplements. I at least am going back to a dermatologist in two weeks for a 7 month followup to my last visit. Hopefully they can tell me if there have been changes or not

Just start FIN and Minox for prevention of MPB now, and you will be fine.

Being concerned about potential loss in the future is ok as most guys of European descent have these genes.

You don't have loss that requires a HT though

seriously? You advise this kid to go on fin and minox without even a single clue of baldness? You realize that theres only so much time you can use minox effectively? Why would he jump on DHT blockers this early?
