View Full Version : Propecia Shed Question

08-18-2013, 12:42 PM
Hi everyone. I am 20 years old and I've been on Propecia for around 2 months. My hair was already shedding before beginning Propecia and the shedding has only gotten worse but I am unsure whether this just the balding process speeding up or if the Propecia shed has begun. I really hope it's the latter because if my hair is already thinning this much before the Propecia shed has begun then I really hold no hope that I will retain a full head of hair.

My question is around week 6 the hair from the sides and back of my head started shedding, not significantly and the hair doesn't just fall off like on the top of my head, but if I pull at my hair on the sides or back with a little bit of pressure I can usually pull out a hair or two and this was not the case before. Could this be a sign of the Propecia working or would slight weakening of the hair on the back and sides be expected with aggressive mpb?
