    I think personally i'm gonna give it a couple of years, I think cos you're ten years older than me and have stopped growing it would be less of a risk, if i were you start on a TINY dose and see what happens, best of luck

    Fabio it seems like your hairline is the same, from the pics.

    That is good news.

    usually when playing russian roulette you have a 1 in 6 chance of dying.. I don't see how that's a good comparison

    if im honest it has got worse no doubt about it maybe it isnt noticeable in the pictures its weird its like every few months the next layer of my hairline thins and doesnt stick to the rest of the hair when i comb it, theres always a seperate part..that maybe doesnt make sense its hard to explain either way although its not drastic its noticable to me

    and altough its very unlikely to cause death its still a risk to be stuck with a limp dick, brain fog ect for the sake of trying to save your hair but i know if i lose it totally id ****ed either way? decisions decisons

    on another now my mate was talkin to me yesterday whos balding he said his 34 yr old uncle has been taking rogaine for 9 months and said his hairs amazing now , he had has ALOT of hair come back and regrowth sounds encouraging

    as you can see i keep my hair kinda long so its a real pain in the ass to style and i really dont want to cut it short and make it too obvious im receding so putting in the rogaine would be difficult i imagine

    also heard it causes a huge shed (i know meds are supposed to means they are working) in the hairline that might never come back so i worry about it speeding up my baldness if the hairs do not regrow and thirdly I suffer mild anxiety and have heard rogaine causes some fast heart palpatations ect dizzyness and this would not help me control any anxiety I have and more likely to cause a panic attack

    If you are not willing to treat your hair loss, you need to learn how to come to terms with losing your hair. The only treatments that are actually proven to work are Propecia, Rogaine and the laser comb. All three can cause shedding because shedding is a necessary part of the treatment process. There is no way to avoid shedding and treat your hair loss at the same time. Reality really stinks sometimes.
