    like baseline sex hormones and followup labs?

    i have neuropathy in both hands so searching physically hurts me, lol

    i'd like to know the effects of these drugs on a PREmenopausal woman's free testosterone, total, estrogen, progesterone....

    I guess anyone on this is forced to use bcp therefore no

    I bought a topical finastride
    It's probably too weak to do anything but who knows

    I read that flax seeds work similiar (maybe not as effective) as finasteride so am giving that a try first. At least it cant hurt.

    I have just started 6 week ago to take finasteride 2.5mg, I live out of the US so buy it over the counter. I see it has definitely stopped hairloss to a fair degree, I don't know if it will help regrow. I just spoke with a dr who says it does not regrow frontal hair loss, only on the crown. My loss is primarily in the very front hairline, center front and more one temple area, otherwise my hair is ok. So I thought I would try this for maybe 3-6 months to see if it helps at all front area (contrary to what Dr says, he may be just pushing transplant, he says transplant is only thing that can improve frontal hair loss)......I suppose I can try it for a few months more.
