View Full Version : Need Advice. 18 year old male... male pattern baldness but afraid of side effects.

Hey everyone,

So I'm noticeably balding at 18 (sorry no pictures but my hairline is receding) and I have looked into treatment (the big three, nioxin, green tea etc, etc), but I'm extremely concerned about going on something like finasteride due to its potentially side effects related to infertility. Trust me, balding this young isn't optimal, but I think it would be much worse of a curse to never be able to have children. So I need advice, are there any options that might work without major side effects or, if not, is it worth the risk this young to go for something like propecia? I'm torn and any advice would be a huge help. Thanks!

If you want to have a fighting chance at keeping your hair than you have to go on fin. You can try just using minoxidil and maybe a keto shampoo but i highly doubt that, that would work for you escpecially at your age. Statistically though you have a a larger chance at fin not working than giving you sides... your choice.
