    I began using Rogaine in 1996 when I noticed scalp showing through on the back of my head. Hair was so thick elsewhere that I had not noticed it before. The Rogaine never really seemed to create new growth but stopped the loss and I continued this stoppage until 2007. I later added Propecia then Avodart both of which ast medicinally to stop the breakdown of testosterone to compounds that shrink hair follicles on the head. This combo seemed also to stop the hair loss but not do much to create more. I was especially annoyed at the breakage of hair on front of head making it look like there wasn't much hair on top front of head. Then I switched to the portable low level laser treatment. That has worked better than the others and though regrowth is not terrific, loss has been stopped as with the other treatments and the hair grows substantially longer on the front now. I would recommend this one. Apparently the laser light activates the mitochondria (growth cells) in the follicles creating new growth -- hope it continues to work for me and for you too if you try it. Good luck.

    Hunghillbilly-
    there seem to be some gaps in your account
    could you fill us in
    When did you start experiencing hairloss in the front of your head?
    What do you mean about breakage?
    Thanks!

    have been on Propecia for a while (like 4-5 years), it did stop/slow loss, has not really created new growth (thanfully I started before I had a 'bald spot'). Only side effect I've had is that my cum is not as thick, and less in quantity on the second or third cum in a night.

    Propecia AND Rogaine together work wonders, specially at the beginning. The laser com is good too, as long as you have hair. If you are completely bald, they wont work for you.

    Now, there is a new product that will give bald men all their hair back and is called Telomerase. See www.igrowhair.com Its based on new developments in genetic engineering. I am bald and will try that product eventually but its not being sold yet.

    Thank-you for sharing your experience.
    That is good to know.
    You seem like a pretty virile guy, so it must not affect you much.
    What do you think happens in the case of the average guy?
    Any change to the size of your penis, or testicles?
