Hi, apologies if this question has already been answered. I’m a 22 yr old male with what I believe is mild recession and thinning at the temples, creating more of a widows peak. I started noticing the recession and thinning (really only on the right side) within the last year and it is slowly but I believe surely, getting worse and at a quick pace.
My question is, assuming what i believe it true, is it worth starting on propecia or do you think it won’t do anything?
Well, considering I haven’t examined you at all and have no medical history about you, I have no way to know if Propecia is worth starting. It’s a prescription medication, so you will need to see a doctor to find out if you should take it.
At 22 years old with early loss, it could be beneficial to halt the progression further. But if you don’t have genetic hair loss (let’s say you’re just seeing your mature hairline form), then Propecia probably isn’t worth starting. This is why you should see a doctor to help make that determination.
