I’m 20 years old and have been receding at my temples for the past year or two, and I’m not happy about it. There are no signs of it stopping. I think it is now passing the point of a “mature hairline”.
I’m very conflicted on whether or not to try finasteride because of my age and concerns about hormones and affecting things like facial hair development, sexual function, and god knows what else that DHT does. I only just turned 20. I think it’s early enough to catch and stop with fin, though.
I thought I’d do a post both here and in r/bald to get the “steel man” arguments from both perspectives. What are your best arguments/evidence for why finasteride is nothing to worry about? Feel free to go all out.
Thanks guys. Just trying to figure out the best option.
