So j contacted a few clinics, some say they can do the transplant, but some clinics state that I should wait as there is a high chance there will be shockloss when doing a hair transplant, I've been on finasteride for a decade mainly on/off, look at my image and tell me what i should do at this point, I don't wish to use minoxidil as it causes rapid heart beat and eye bags.. posted wet and dry hair images below, tell me how I can fix this, seems to me finasteride isn't working that well as it used to..

Thanks for the welcome, so I've contacted asmed, and bhr both stated that you should wait as there is a high risk of shock loss, damaging existing hair.

Clinics like cosmedica who estimated 4500 grafts, and there was another one can't figure out the name..

So I have mixed feelings about getting a hair transplant atm, im taking 1.2mg finasteride daily sometimes I skip a day.  That's my only current regimen. Can't take minoxidil due to rapid heart beat and eye bags, and i feel like finasteride no longer effective as it used to be,  so seeking alternatives i want to improve the density on my mid top/crown areas and try to restore hairline which I think its not that possible

I would advise you to contact as many clinics as possible, here on the forum there is a link where you can ask for online consultations to clinics / surgeons recommended by the forum.

Listen to ASMED and Dr Bisanga, they actually have your best interests at heart. Cosmedica and other hair mills will happily take anybody..

I understand that, and surprised they actually said these things, however regarding my hairline which receeded really badly and crown area how can I improve those?

Fin will help but you need to stay consistent and not be missing days etc. Try consulting with a few more clinics too. Eugenix are very good and worth contacting !

Not necessarily:

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.2164/jandrol.109.009381

"In summary, a 1‐mg dose of finasteride does not appear to adversely affect spermatogenesis. In addition, the level present in the ejaculate of patients taking 1 mg appears to be negligible. Thus, there does not appear to be any need to stop 1 mg of finasteride in those patients trying to conceive or in those whose partners are pregnant."

As always, talk to your doctor.
