    Default how often do long term Propecia users shed?

    I have been on propecia now for a little over one year and while I certainly don't shed like I did in the first several months of usage, I do have a shed every 3-4 months which lasts about a week or so. I am not losing a "crazy" amount of hair but somewhere in the neighborhood of 150-200 hairs a day which is enough ;-/

    anyone who has been on propecia for over a year or several years also still experience sheds 1-3 times a year and if so do you always eventually grow back what you lost?

    thanks for all feedback.

    Those are just normal hair cycles. It's good for your hair, they rest, then come back stronger and thicker[if you're on finasteride or not]. Don't panic, every one, even non-MPB, go through hair cycles. It's completely normal. But finasteride sheds are a sign that thicker hairs will grow.

    If you have MPB and are not taking finasteride, when you have a hair cycle, the hairs come back thinner and thinner every time. So don't worry if you're on fin.
