View Full Version : Hair loss with pictures

I will try and keep it some what brief, I am a 22 year old, and I am pretty sure I have been losing hair, or at least receding since I was about 17...Also have a condition called Rheumatoid arthritis, or thats what the Doctor things I have got...

I am not that convinced it is just that but I have been on medication for it, since 2010 : firstly with a cancer drug called methatrixate; which made my hair fall out very quickly and was the first time really noticed my hairline...And hair loss, but I am sure I had it before, the drug just sped it up, I think. Then they moved me to a different drug called Humira...

I decided to try and do something about my hair, so I turned to the internet, and found many forums like this, for better or worse, they have helped. And I thought I should get involved, I might find some people who can help me, or who I can help in some way.

I have some pictures and just wanted to know If I can get a heads up on how bad it is, or where I am on a Norwood scale.

The fun bit : I started using Propecia in june, and It made me shed more then stopped the shedding around july. Not sure if It is better now or worse to be honest. But since the shedding stopped I got brave and tried rogaine form on the 30th of july , and the shedding started again after about a five day...Still going on at the same rate...Any ideas on what to expect when it will stop, is it worth it?

Oh and I have been taking a few vitamins as well not for hair growth but due to the other drug. Oh and alpecin double effect, not really sure if it helps, but it seems to make my hair grow longer quicker...

Sorry the pictures are not great...

Looks like you have lost a bit but havent we all? Let us know how the meds turn out. I am interested in your experience on fin.

I have to say, your hairline doesnt seem to have changed much within a year at all!
Although there is change at the temples, your hair looks thick and of great condition over all.
Perhaps this is a very strong adult hairline, exacerbated by the medication?
Even if you are receding, it might not be too agressive!
