Yeah man, I will. I started April 9th, so what am I at as of posting this...................... almost five months? I trying to remain hopeful, but I think I just keep noticing more hair in my sink anyways.
I heard that was a good indication that it is working, but honestly, I just don't know. The last thing I want to provide myself is false hope and wishful thinking hahaha. Regardless, I plan on sticking to it for about a year and a half, if all I manage to do is retain and not regrow, I'm just not interested. If that ends up being the case, I will most likely just stop the meds and shave my head.
For the mean time, something that helps if you have a somewhat decent amount of hair (I do, but it still kinda looks crappy to me), is dermmatch. Everytime I am required to go out somewhere without my hat (funeral, wedding, etc) this stuff is a god-send. Hell, even some days I just don't feel like throwing the old hat on and I just throw on some dermmatch. The stuff really does a great job of making my hair look full, I've had great results with it.
Despite ALL of that, like I said earlier, if I don't get regrowth on the Propecia, I'll just shave my head. The dermmatch is nice and all, but I really don't want to have to rub that stuff on my head everytime I want to go out for the rest of my life.............my feelings are the same towards Rogaine. It just isn't worth it to me. A pill everyday? Now that I can do, so I have been religiously taking my propecia.
Again, good luck with the quest man. If you are interested, I think the website for the dermmatch is dermmatch.com or net or something. You can probably google it and find out more if you want, just trying share something that has worked pretty well for me while I wait to see what Propecia ends up doing.
