So when I used to frequent this place I always hoped that the people who disappeared were achieving success and didn't want to post here in case they jinx it. I'm right now terrified of jinxing it. I'm only here because people helped me out a lot here. I've been on Rogaine 5% foam for 15 months now. It took about 1 year to notice a difference but I went from thinning hair to now looking like I just have thin hair. I also think the reason that there was quite a big change from Dec 2016-June 2017 is because I started Yasmin during that period. So right now daily: Rogaine 5% foam + Yasmin Honestly ladies, I would love to come back and share more but I'm so scared of jinxing it. It's psychological lol. Just know that I went from being suicidal and rarely leaving my house in 2015 and now I don't even think about my hair and it's actually grown quite long and I wear it down (though it's due for a cut due to split ends). Applying rogaine has pretty much become part of my morning routine and now I don't even see it as anything beside another "beauty product". One of my fears about using Rogaine was aging rapidly. Again, still scared to jinx it. I'm 27 now. But honestly, I look younger than I did at 25. I've lost about 40lbs and my skin has mostly cleared up save for the odd breakout. I think PCOS had triggered my Androgenetic Alopecia and the birth control really helped. I also didn't take daily pics and count hairs and all of that. I'd recommend not doing so. You will notice the change and you will notice when your hair stops shedding. Let's just say that in 2015/16 just running my fingers through my hair pulled out many strands. Now my hair gets caught in bag handles when it's on my shoulder and nothing. *knocks on wood* lol.
