Hello everyone. I'm 19 and I recently discovered these forums and have been looking around for quite some time looking for answers to my own situation. I am in a very stressful time in my life because my hairline is receding quite rapidly. I first noticed this 2 years ago when I was losing hair all around my head but didn't make too much of it. It's until recently where I really was shocked to see how much hair I lose at the temples. Especially on my right side. I have not gone to any doctors or dermatologists. I have been taking Beta Sitosterol pills for 6 months and it seems to have stopped the overall hairloss all over my head but it seems its not doing much for my hairline. As far as my family history goes, My father is 54 and is on a Norwood Scale IV. His father still has a full head of hair at 87 years old. My mother's father is completely bald. A lot of my uncles from both sides of the family are balding or bald but they all started to bald in their early 30's. I don't know what to do anymore. I'm obsessed with my hair. I grow it out to try and cover it up but then get frustrated and buzz my hair to get even more depressed when I see my hairline. I'm also starting college soon so my confidence level and self esteem is extremely low. I barely get out of the house anymore. I feel like I'm 40 years old. I just feel like there's no hope for me at all.
Here's some pics. I've recently buzzed my hair.
And here's a pic of my hair just 5-6 months ago.
Someone please help. I'm desperate.
