I wouldn't care. I started shaving my head years ago. Hair and primping is not real practical for what I do or for real men in general. I see the OP is female so I can understand the concern. Should it not have been a consideration before starting?

GS, I think the hair loss is one of the overlooked sides in women. One because some have issues from really bad to hardly noticeable, until it is noticeable then there is panic, to nothing at all unless they get crazy with dosing. Some women can handle Mast other just a little and hair starts falling out like crazy. Unlike acne that resolves with a change in drug, dosing or cessation of use, the hair regrowth is generally a non-starter. You can live with a deeper voice, people get used to it, a bigger clit, not many ever see it and the orgasms are nuclear, facial or body hair can be shaved or lasered, but baldness in women is the worst of the worst. Spironolactone and oral antiandrogens may help but will blunt the effects of AAS, even topicals may have a negative effect as some gets systemic. Finasteride or DUT will reduce the hair loss with T, but not other androgens that are already DHT based, Mast for example. There is a new topical anti-androgen being released this year for acne, the same drug is under P2 trials for hair loss. Unlike topical 5 ARi that will only help with T to a degree, a full AR receptor blocker should help with all ASS, in theory. But, the larger the area of application, the greater the likelihood of systemic effects.

My wife is having thinking of the hair, and she has never done gear. Her grams and her aunt both wore wigs, and were bald. The wife is 36 and it’s freaking her out too. I think she naturally has higher than normal T levels, I’ve asked her to get blood test to check.... not sure what else to do. Think the kids fucked her system up.....

My wife started her HRT via pellets and started losing a decent amount of hair. Went back to the dr and he ended up putting her on finasteride and it pretty much stopped it. That being said, my wife's hair is THICK so it wasn't noticeable to anyone but her. Saw it when she brushed and washed her hair.

It was a concern and I already knew about all sides because i do my research myself. Again, this post was not about complaining about a side effect, it was merely a post made from my experience. I knew all of this going in and I get my bloods done 3x's a year if not more because i'm super aware and concerned about more than just hair loss.
Again, was merely documenting my experience for the sake of some women out there doing their own research and reading other people's concerns.

More than likely, how i will deal with this is that i will go back on it (cuz life sux without it lol),and get some hair cream or whatever to help me deal with the on top of the head hair loss. Will post up later what i decide to do.

How are you feeling now you’ve stopped taking your hrt?

For me that wouldn’t be an option no matter the consequences; I’m in a bad place when my body goes hypogonadal.
How am i feeling??: lazy, tired, libido is lower than low, low energy, tired.....LOL It sux dude. But then again, i'm also compounded with still dealing with my mother's death and it was her birthday on Jan 1. Anywho, all i'm trying to say is that i don't feel like myself without the T, but also is compounded by some emotional shit LOL.

A female friend on HRT uses http://www.eucapil.com/xhtml_en/eucapil.shtml, no issues getting it through customs, Amazon appears to sell it but you never know with them. In addition to minoxidil and oral finasteride 2.5 mg. 1.25 mg would probably be enough to cut the DHT conversion down by 60%. Effects on libido were minor if any at all. Also uses the light helmet and did PRP treatments. Tried everything else there is, other topicals (FIN, E2, Cu peptides, etc.) Nothing else had any effect. Always amazes me when doctors say the literature does not support giving women T for libido. Other option is to switch to deca. Another friend used it for HRT and there was no hair loss. She was using about 80 mg/wk. Had to stop bc her HCT was out of control and affected BP that she already has issues with. Felt really good on it though. Former BB/stongwoman competitor.

Sorry for your loss. My mom's b-day was yesterday and she died 4 years ago.
