I'm 24 and have been receding since about 21. I've been taking only minodoxil 5% for about 2 years It can't really determine if my hairline is getting worse or staying the same. I want to go see a doctor and get on fin/procepia asap. Is that a good idea? Also where would I fall on the norwood scale? And should I consider just going with the buzz cut at this time? I'm getting fed up with dealing with this :/

The good news is you still have a great amount of hair left, But unfortunately it seems from the pics you have some thinning going on as well as receding.
Dude I am in the same boat as you, my hairloss is actually a little worse, I am 25 with a receding hairline and I am starting to thin in the frontal center region. I have been going back and forth with the idea of taking propecia. I guess I would be a NW 2.5-3 I don't know
I take Minoxidil 5% too and I cant tell if it really works or not. I just got my prescription for propecia but I am hesitant to take it because of all the stuff I here on the internet about it.
Also general doctors don't know an incredible amount about Propecia or hairloss, so you might have to flat out tell them that you want to take it,
Get Nizoral shampoo as well its worth a shot, I also take Viviscal but who knows if that works.
