Hi!
I am a 24 year old male. I am losing hair quite fast and my backpatch is now visible. Though baldness is hereditary in my family, but I started to get bald at about 18 years of age, which is unprecedented in my family. Please tell me the remedy. Also, please tell me whether excessive mastrbation has any role in baldness as I masturbate 10 - 12 times a week (I read it somewhere that excessive masturbation causes harmonal changes, which results in high testosterone levels causing baldness.)

doctor1 MD

Yes,it is very early hair loss,Masturbation has no any effect on it but it causes generalized weakness.Avoid this much frequency.
You have typical hair loss due to family history.
You can prevent it to some extent.

hi sir, I am 25 and has been losing hair for the last 4-5 years. the rate of hairfall is slow but nonetheless it seems it is a pattern baldness as my father also has similar baldness. Is there a way I can stop hairfall and regrow the lost hair, at this stage the baldness is mildly acute. especially at the crown portion.

doctor1 MD

Hi Suvrojit,
You seem to be having androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness which is governed by hereditary as well as hormonal(androgenic) factors. Start using 5% minoxidil solution( coverit ax, hair4u etc) 1 ml twice in a day. You can also take finesteride 1 mg once in a day. This...

I heard that if you have chronic stress , no hair loss product will work to restore or regrow hair until the stress is relieved, is this correct? I take 1000mg of Saw Palmetto, 1000 mg of Biolin, use Ducray Anastim Chronostim (started 4 days ago), and take a multvitamin with B100 complex. I suffer from manic depression as well.
