I’m a 19 year old male who started Finasteride in January 1 because I had a receding hairline. In the past four months or so, my hairline has significantly receded and is becoming really noticeable, particularly around my temples. I thought I’d be able to maintain and hopefully regrow a little given that I’m young, but it seems to have had the opposite effect. Is this a shed? Is there a chance Finasteride is making my balding faster? How long should I wait to see the full effects of finasteride? Reading on websites is hard because most articles are written by companies that either sell Fin or say fin doesn’t work because they offer hair transplants.
You should stick to the finasteride and any shedding phase will pass. Finasteride may not slow down the recessions as sometimes, especially in a maturing hairline, finasteride will not work. Transplants are out of the question at your age. See a an expert like me who will tell you want is going on. See here: https://newhair.com/baldingblog/haircheck-test-how-it-is-done-video/
