    I will contact Murray today.
    Progesterone might not be safer than Finasteride, as far as having some of the same side effects. Topical Finasteride
    might have the same side effects as oral. I really don't know.

    So I did some research of Prog there few days.
    I read someone said it will CAUSE hairloss if you aren't estrogen dominance and prog can cause more DHT converted. I really have no idea. But seems Prog quality is critical in success? I read a term called "micronised progesterone", seems effective but again I have no idea. Anyway I will definitely give prog a try but still wanna know more about this stuff.

    @k9gatton , Murray Avenue progesterone says "Massage a dime size dab into scalp once daily. Leave in for 15 minutes, then rinse."

    So, do you apply progesterone just for 15 min only and then rinse?

    It's a prescribed topical medication. I just leave it in. It contains Finasteride, Progesterone, and Minoxidil.

    Sorry about the late update. Progesterone has really helped me keep my hair in. I take a higher dosage (two percent), from Promox, and I'm really happy with that.

    For me, it kept my hair in, for the most part. Cannot really say if it grew it back in or not. Progesterone is the precursor to Testosterone, and there isn't a lot of evidence either way.

    I apply more than that in my scalp. I am using the highest Minoxidil dosage they provide (thirty percent). It's mixed with Finasteride and Progesterone (their's has only 0.5% Progesterone in it).

    I don't massage in. I just put it where I am balding.

    Default Update on Progesterone

    I'm doing microneedling, and using a 2% Progesterone solution.

    Finally gaining my hair back. But still have a Norwood 3 hairline. I will update this thread with pictures.

    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.

    side effects?
