Doctor reading this really scared me. Its from hairlosshelp.com
This is what someone posted regarding propecia
“Yes. I barely had any recession, it honestly looked like maturing of the hairline, and me having my dads hairline, it looked like thats what was happenning. Eight months in 2/3 of the front of my head fall out, I end up shedding 100+ hairs a day for 5 months, where as before Fin I only shed 15 a day. I was in so much denial I kept using it. So yah I ruined my hairline. Thankfull it’s growing back, but I probably permanately turned on the balding genes in those hairs, because it raised my testosterone so much. My testosterone used to run around 650, it got all the way up to 900 on fin. And, by the way, fin DID DO what its suppose to – it lowered my DHT signifcantly, it’s the testosterone that killed my hairline. Hairlines are beleived to be more sensitive to all androgens.”
Is it true? The hairline is more sensitive to testosterone and fin make the testosterone go up?
I would really appreciate it if you can answer this question ASAP. Im sure alot of people would also want an answer to this question.
The hairline is less sensitive to DHT blocking, but I don’t know if it is more sensitive to testosterone. The probability is that frontal hair experiences apoptosis (cell death) at an earlier age than the hair in the crown in most people.
In regard to the story you read that was posted about Propecia, that is one person’s experience and the story hasn’t been validated. I won’t make light of what this person says, but it isn’t objective and I just don’t believe everything I read (particularly on message boards where anyone can sign up with fake information). You can find all kinds of claims on the Internet, but who will validate the story?
And even if it is true, what would you like me to add? Are you asking for reassurance that Propecia will not cause hair loss? You will lose your hair with or without Propecia if you have the gene for male pattern baldness. Hopefully you have a doctor to work with, so talk to your doctor. Get the facts straight. If you look hard enough the Internet, you will probably never leave your house due to the fear mongering that goes on.
