    I got my blood test like 5 days ago and my thyroid and blood count check came back negative so it looks like I just have good old MPB. I was hoping my hair loss was related to a thyroid problem even though that would be terrible haha.

    Anyway, I haven't been very happy with my Dermatologist. I had to call in for my blood test results even though they were supposed to call me and they said they didn't have them but then they called 3 hours later with the results and apologized for not contacting me. I'm also a little bit upset at how short and brief my first and only meeting was. She didn't even mention propecia! So what I'm trying to figure out is why she only told me to take Rogaine and Biotin (I was the one who mentioned Biotin and she said it was fine). Did she just want to see if minoxidil would be effective in 3 months so there would be no need for Propecia? Because it seems like I should get on that medication as soon as possible. I don't want DHT to keep killing my hair while Rogaine only helps minimally. I think I'm starting to lose more on the crown (and everywhere else) but I might just be going crazy.

    Should I find a new Dermatologist or stick with this until my next visit? I just don't want to lose hair due to DHT and then not be able to revive those already lost hairs. Sorry in advance for my ranting.
