im 21, but have been going bald since sixteen. i hate it cause im so young and have no confidence. i used drugs to solve it but nothing happened. is a hair transplant the only answer? sick of seeing all these ways of growing hair back, as in using tablets
At 21, you are young to be balding, especially since this has been going on since you were 16. However, you are certainly not alone; see the Age postings in this blog for some of the other questions (and my responses) from men your age. I would suggest that first you have a complete physical to rule out any underlying medical conditions that could be causing the hair loss. Once that is done, your next step would be to see a doctor who specializes in hair loss. Be ready to discuss with them your medical history, what hair loss treatments you have tried and for how long, what effect they have had, and what is your family history of balding.
A hair transplant may be appropriate at your age if your future genetic balding pattern can be determined. A good, ethical hair transplant surgeon will be able to tell you whether surgery is an option, or if Propecia alone would be beneficial at this stage in your balding. Do not rush into surgery without a clear understanding of what your future balding pattern may be.
