    Default Calling all slow growers

    I'm not happy with my growth at nearly 7 months. I have side by side comparison photos and there has been minimal growth since month 5. Maybe 10 %. But over all I'd say I've currently got around 30% of my yield. In places as low as 10% yield. Zero cosmetic benefit.

    Has anyone seen there hair transplant totally turn around between months 7-18 even after pauses in development?

    Where are the areas on the scalp that were treated, and what location is generally showing the lowest yield? Lastly, have you received any feedback from your clinic?

    Front and temples. Only a cm lower at the front and considerable temple filling. Clinic said it's too early of course.

    I can see a lot of thin hairs that are too long to be velus under the microscope but they don't seem to be getting thicker. Have a little bit of pebble stoning too that you can see under angled bright light only.

    Yes it is massively stressful!

    All you can do is hope. There's a general timeline on how things should progress but there's no guarantee and I think a lot of times guys forget that. They see results of others and expect the same. 5-7 months is generally when you start to see movement, but the final results can take much longer.

    7 months 1 week. Still looking thin. In some places very thin.

    No real difference seen month by month.

    There are fine hairs that are too long to be velus though but they don't seem to be moving. The thinnest area doesn't have many of these hair but the temples which are also thin but thicker by a lot have many of these fine unpigmented hairs in between terminal hairs..

    Very very very frustrating and depressing.

    Cos pics always make it look much worse or much better than it really is.

    I know my yield is shit anyway. I don't need confirmation of that. Just looking for input from people on various stages of growth.

    I've seen no improvement since 5 months. perhaps 10% improvement. Some part of the transplanted zone literally look like there area few pubes growing and thats it.

    It's interesting what the doctor above wrote. I just find it hard to believe that all of a sudden I'm going to have the explosive growth needed to make this anything more than a waste of time, money and grafts. Grafts I have particularly limited supply of.

    If I don't get decent coverage from this it'll be the single biggest mistake of my life.
