I'm gonna be very honest. At age 27 I started taking anabolic hormones and took more than plenty with sometimes not taking enough breaks in between. All out for about 7 years til about a one year and a half ago I slowed down to only taking hormone replacement. Just about three months ago I realized my replacement was stil in the high end so I reduced it to 125 mg per week. I have noticed a reduction in shedding. The thing I'm mostly concerned about is my hairline. It has gone up about 1/2 an inch or so in the past few years. But, in the past year I have noticed many hairs on the rim sprouting like crazy they look like cactus prickles and they are thick and dark. Though I stil see some few thin pale ones. I've seen some grow from tiny thin hair to 3-4 inches long now. No b.s.. I recently started getting very much on schedule with Spiro cream and added minoxidil .5 ml once a day only on hairline after fathers day and also started nizoral 1% 3-4 days a week and really manage my stress better. I also take 85% standardized 640 mg of saw palmetto and 500 mg of pure beta sitosterol. I also threw in half a tab of dutasteride once a week since I feel my case is not severe. Honestly the shedding has been alot less. Less when I comb, style and shower. I see more hair of course when I don't wash hair in 48 hours so surely there's about two hundred hairs that come out. I'm including some pics so please tell me if I just went through the mature hairline or am I really receding or if my regimen is bogus or not. I really want honest opinions. I know I basically did this to myself by taking enhancers but now im older and wiser and really want to do everything possible to halt or even get a little more back. Thanks

first pics obviously I'm pulling my hair back very tight. I have natural waves so the pics where hair is relaxed with no hair products the line isn't as noticeable. just wondering if I,m in the early stages and what should be the best thing to do at this point. I understand I still have a f*&k load of hair but really want to catch it quickly. another thing is my hair is very long and had my girlfriend check thoroughly for any difference in density in my whole scalp. she says she sees that only about half an inch from my current hairline is abit not as dense as the rest of my head and the front half of top of my head has more thick sprouting hair coming out than the rest of my head. hard to explain. sorry. hope I can get some feedback. I really hope my hair is rebounding back since I quit all harsh supplements. I was told by some folks in other forums that if in 7 years of hardcore use I did not go bald then I probably won't loose much now after. that I only sped up my mature line process. God I hope he is right.

I also need to add that the past seven years I've been going through SEVERE STRESS. Family feuds, not talking to my father for four years, my sister for five years we did not speak, two dear friends going through horrible cancer, breakups with my girlfriend (stil hanging on strong though, stil together), managing a store, had a baby 4 years ago etc. I am 35 years old if it helps.

Please someone? There is people posting after me with replies. I really thought this was one of the best forums. am I just being purposely ignored? Trust me I only joined because I have a concern. I'm not trying to offend anyone. I've been pretty depressed and anxious.
