    Default Propecia and TRT

    Hey guys, new member here. I am 24 and have been noticed a small amount of hairloss in the past 6 months in the crown area. I also have a slightly receded hairline, but it hasn't really changed since I was about 19 or so. Needless to say my loss in the crown has got me nervous so I've been reading up on Propecia.

    I've read a lot about the sides of Propecia and the erectile problems some experience, but my question is, are sides like this possible if I am on TRT? I am taking 200 mg's per week of Testosterone Cypionate and will also be starting HCG in a few weeks.

    Basically what I am wondering is with my test levels constant through the injections as well as the HCG, is there much of a risk of sides with Propecia in my case?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    Maybe you should tell us what TRT and HCG is.

    TRT = Testosterone Restoration Therapy - I was diagnosed with low testosterone, so I take an injection of 200 mg's per week of Testosterone Cypionate (a steroid). Basically raises my test levels to optimal and keeps them there/steady.

    HGC = Human Chorionic Gonadotropin - Another aspect of the TRT treatment, acts as Leutenizing Hormone in the body. It stimulates the function of the testes and synthesis of testosterone.

    I'm a bit new to all of this, so let me know if you need/want any more info.

    Oh

    I think it would be best for you to talk to your doctor about this. Make sure the doctor knows that hair loss is a concern for you.

    I agree, and will be in a few weeks. I am just wondering if there is anyone else out there with a similar situation to mine.
