    Default Topical Progesterone used to combat male androgen alopecia

    Spiro is a better treatment than Progesterone for females, so I'm not going to touch that subject in this thread.

    Although this didn't do much for my hairline (twenty new terminal hairs), it did do quite a lot for my vertex area. However, I currently use it on both.

    Started January 2016 (.25% Progesterone). In September the amount was doubled to .5%.

    Currently I am using a topical formula that contains .5% Progesterone. In "theory", every .1% is equal to one milligram of medication.

    Left picture - January 2016.

    Right picture - September 2016

    Default Progesterone .25% used from January 2016 - March 2016

    My progress pictures. Have pictures of both the vertex and hairline. Took topical
    Progesterone after three months. The vertex is filling in.

    Currently taking twice the amount of Progesterone (.5% since September 2016).

    Do you apply the cream directly to the scalp only?

    Yes. Only on diffuse/or bald areas.

    K9gatton, congrats on your success. I'd like to ask you a few questions if you wouldn't mind?
    -You are on a heavy duty proven regimen. What makes you so sure the progesterone is responsible for your success?
    -I've been doing a lot of reading on Progesterone and for every one success post I find, I also find three posts (throughout internet) stating how it made things significantly worse. This is very confusing and worrisome.
    -Can you please state the specific progesterone .25% product you started off with? Purchase online? I'm considering trying it as you stated you had success on it. I do however fear it will cause problems to my hair as I'm not on any treatments (bad sides before even on reduced fin and minox) therefore do not have that protection that you have. Thanks for your responses!!

    Getting it from https://www.medicalwellnesscenter.com/

    If they approve your prescription, you pay for each refill to Murray Avenue Acotherapy. They make all of the concentrated Minoxidil solutions in Pittsburgh, PA.

    FYI: You don't have to have a high level of Minoxidil. They actually sell them in different strengths. They are creams. They sell in 12.5%, 15% Minoxidil as well. Also, you can combine it with lower dosages.

    This is what I highly recommend, so you won't ruin your hair. Combine it with .1% Hydrocortisone. That is anti inflammatory. Also combine with Finasteride. You probably don't need retinol or any other chemicals for that matter.
    Good luck.

    Started balding before Progesterone. Also cut my Minoxidil in half. The problem was I thought the liquid Finasteride was doing the work, but it wasn't.

    As soon as I used the Progesterone, my hair started regrowing. Also, it doesn't fall out, when it does, it is much less than a "full head" person. I have maybe a few hairs fall out per weak. The hair on top grows faster than my sides or back as well.

    Thanks however I would much prefer to try the progesterone without minoxidil if thats possible? I get the feeling I am out of luck. Minoxidil in the past bloated my face and gave wrinkles and insomnia even at low dose. This sucks.
