Is This Male Pattern Baldness?


Recommended Posts

I have some thinning hair on the crown. I have a M-shaped hairline as well but I don't care as much about that. 

I noticed on the crown that the hair is thinning. There is still hair growing there but it's really thin and short. I am on Vitamin B12 tablets because blood work demonstrated a slight deficiency. I am also using Minoxidil 5% twice per day.

That is 100% male pattern baldness, if you haven’t tried finasteride you should. You’re still early enough to stop it. Once it goes, it’s not coming back.

When you say early enough to stop it do you mean that my hair will grow back potentially to a full head of hair? No bald spot? 

How common are the side effects?

No, I mean you may stop losing more hair. You probably won’t regrow any hair.

But doesn't Minoxidil bring about re-growth? I've seen some before and afters that seem to indicate it. 

No, minoxidil just like finasteride works to prevent further hair loss, very few regrow hair with medication. Finasteride regrows more hair than minoxidil. Definitely give it a try.

Will Finasteride get me to a point where I can't see scalp? 

In your case, it will recover the density and hair calibre. You have just started to experience androgenetic alopecia. This medication will be a blessing.

i'd reccomend starting finasteride you could also start minox with microneedling etc to increase the odds of regrowth it also depends how long you've been balding for it this hair loss is a year or less ago then you are more likely to get regrowth as the follicle might not be "dead"
