View Full Version : Need Help - Propecia (1 Week User)

Hello people,

I am 22 years old and was having hairloss so I decided to start fin. I would say I am NW2 right now. It's been a week and my hairloss seems to have reduced greatly (20-30 strands a day). The only side effect that I have experienced till now is low libido. I noticed I don't have morning wood anymore and if I ever do it's really weak. One more thing maybe that I don't have as much energy as I had before but maybe it's in my head because I have a hectic routine these days and just get tired.

A little bit history:
No one in my family is bald. Not on mom's side or dad's side. But I have been having hairloss since I was 13 and now my brother too. I had extremely dense and thick hair and it always grew back but after I was 18, I experienced receding of hairline. It was in the temples and my crown started thinning. It got to the point where it was visible at some points in a lighted room. Also, my hairloss included the eyelashes and eyebrows too. I grew a beard and then I was having hairloss in the beard too. So I looked into Alopecia Areata but now when I looked at the pattern of my hairloss and the recession of hairline, I was convinced it was MPB. Even though no one in my family has it. This is why I started fin and my hairloss decreased greatly over this week. But my eyelashes and eyebrows as well as beard hair still falling out.

Does anyone understand what this might be? Also, is it a good idea to continue using Propecia even though it lowers my libido? My hair is very important to me and I am not going to accept baldness without putting up a fight.

Thanks a lot for the time reading my post!! I would really appreciate your response.

How extensive is your eyebrow loss? What is the pattern? Frontal receeding?

Men and women usually lose their hair because of genetics, but you can prevent hair loss and preserve those locks by eating certain foods rich in Vitamin-B complex. These include red meat, mushrooms, peanuts, eggs, fish, liver, bananas, cereal and green vegetables.
