How worried should men be about the sexual side effects of finasteride? “What I tell men is that it’s not something they should stress about,” says Dr. Wolfeld, “but it is something they should be aware of.” In his experience, he notes only a roughly 5 percent incidence of sexual dysfunction reported by patients who take the medication.
Being an emollient, it restores the moisture balance of the scalp and the hair. It combats dryness, itchiness, and any other irritation that may be present on the scalp that affects hair growth. It can also strengthen your hair and make it shiny and luscious (17).
A separate study, published in Skin Therapy Letter in 2014, found that women also benefit from using the more potent 5 percent minoxidil treatment. “Patient-reported improvement in hair volume and coverage appears to be greater with 5 percent minoxidil foam,” reads the report. Plus, because the 5 percent treatment is stronger, women only have to apply it once a day to get the same results as they would with the 2 percent treatment applied twice daily.
Once the scalp absorbed the ingredients from the gel via follicles, any DHT activities will be prohibited. In general, the testosterone create DHT. When the blood level increases, this interferes along with the normal growth cycle of the hair, causing hair thinning or baldness.
Regrowth treatment is a growth stimulator but can only stimulate growth in areas where previously hair grew and while it is FDA approved to halt hair loss and or regrow hair in those with genetically driven hair loss it can improve the density of existing hair but cannot grow hair in areas where there never has been hair

Under normal conditions, scalp hairs live for about three years (the anagen, or growing, phase); they then enter the telogen, or resting, phase. During the three-month telogen period, the hair root shrivels up into a small “club,” then the hair falls out. It is therefore normal to lose about 100 hairs every day, more of them on days when shampooing loosens the hairs that are ready to fall out. The hairs are then replaced by the body.
I finally gave in and started taking propecia (1.25mg/day) ~15 weeks ago as Rogaine clearly wasn’t going to stop my hair falling out . . . . .the good thing is that I have had ZERO side affects. In fact it also seemed (so I thought) to stop my hair loss for the first 4 weeks or so. However for the last 6 weeks or so, i have been losing hair faster than ever before. I have read that this common typically between the third and fourth month of taking this. Have you heard anything like that? I hope that is the case and it slows soon. I have continued Rogaine liquid twice a day as well as dandruff shampoo a few times a week.
Yeah I totally agree, there are many people who take it for years with no apparent side effects then one day decide to read up on the drug on forums etc. and suddenly they have all the side effects appear. The mind is very powerful indeed.

On December 22, 1997 the FDA approved a 1mg dose of finasteride for the treatment of androgenic alopecia in men (male pattern baldness). Propecia is the first drug in history to effectively treat male pattern baldness in the vast majority of men who use it.

Scientists have discovered that by blocking the production of Dihydrotestosterone, hair loss will be stopped and the follicles will become active again. Hence they manufactured a natural hair growth treatment and called it Provillus.
PRESCRIPTION REMEDIES: If you don’t respond to minoxidil, your doctor might prescribe antiandrogen medications, which may slow hair loss and even stimulate growth in some women. “They inhibit male hormones that can exacerbate hair loss,” explains Dr. Mirmirani. In select cases, she may prescribe finasteride, a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor, which blocks an enzyme that regulates the production of androgens. Because the medication causes birth defects, it is FDA approved only for men. “In premenopausal women who are no longer childbearing, finasteride can be used off label,” Dr. Mirmirani notes.

Thank you, Turner. Finasteride should be enough. I wouldn’t take more than one oral DHT blocking treatment, but I wouldn’t shy away from using additional topical DHT blockers – like Lipogaine for Men (minoxidil plus DHT blocking ingredients).
