Hi, regular poster here going unregged for obvious reasons.
I'm almost 26, male, and in the past 9 - 12 months my hair has thinned dramatically. Its really starting to knock my confidence. I've always had a decent head of hair,always relatively light in comparison to thicker heads, but decent nonetheless, but the thoughts of having it all off in the next 1 - 2 years has me seriously worried. A few people have mentioned it here and there, so it isn't just me imagining things. My dad is bald, one of his two brothers is. Their father was not bald, but it looks as if I pulled a short straw. I haven't cut it in over 3 months which is the longest i've gone in years, and it is purely out of fear of how much scalp exposure there will be when I get it trimmed.
Basically, as the title suggests, I'm looking for opinions / experiences on Proscar/Propecia. Anything.
Oh, and i've searched for similar threads in the past and have noticed that they have been closed with the mod finishing with 'Go to your GP'. I spoke with him briefly last week about it (had appointment for something else but brought this up at the end). He basically said it was a choice that only I could make. Was I willing to have to take a pill a day for the rest of my life, on top of costs etc? Well to be honest, I think i'd get over that. The thoughts of me going around with nothing up there genuinely has me worried to bits.
Any constructive thoughts and opinions greatly appreciated!
