New kid (47
here with a little background on myself.
Early (17) but very slow recession. Took 1o years to become symmetrical then just stopped. Around 36-37 crown spot started forming on right side and quickly spread despite Minox. A year later it was much bigger so I went on Fin. Fin was great as it shrank my spot like crazy and even teen hairline started returning.
But after a couple of years I got sides so I had to stop. After a big shed 50-60% of my fin hair returned so I was happy and could accept that. For several years my mpb seemed dormant and I even almost completely stopped minox for awhile but eventually went back on. A few months ago I wanted to see if I could stop but I started shedding pretty badly and new pics show further crown enlargement so back on it again.
I never fully recovered from Fin and later got worse (no energy, sick all the time for starters). Rather than simply complaining about it on web boards, I took action and went to my Dr. Turns out I have borderline Low T so he put me on a low dosage T and already feel like 18 again
I can run 2 miles again with no problem so back on the road to recovery. But I have a feeling that the T will make my mpb progress at a faster rate.
My pattern follows my mom's brother which means a slow but eventually advanced pattern. My question is what would you do if you were me? I can still conceal my spot most of the time though recently a few friends have noticed. Thinking about just accepting mother nature.
I uploaded a pic to the album showing 10 year 3 year and 1 month ago pics so you can judge how I progressed over 10 years.
