26 years old I am suffering hair fall I am asking does over masturbation generate DHT hormones to cause hair fall?

Masturbation: Does not cause hair loss. That's a common misconception. However, if you're taking testosterone, that can lead to hair loss. Why are you on testosterone? Do you have a real deficiency or just making the mistake of taking it for body building or other recreational reasons? ...Read more

Help! my doctor say excessive ejaculation/masturbation increases hormone levels & DHT production in body which cause baldness in me.Depressed  ?

Not true: This does not happen. You may masturbate all you want and your hormone levels will not be altered and you will certainly not lose your hair. See a dermatologist about your hair and ask your doctor to show you the medical literature to support his assertion. Take care and best wishes. ...Read more

Never woken with erection. ED start age 25, now 38. All hormone checked, all norm, DHT is a little high. how to R/O generalized vascular disease?

Here are some ...: Have you been able to erect for coitus whenever you want at the frequency of 2 times weekly? If yes, you're okay, don't worry, and stop comparing with other men. You're functionally unique. Poor circulation is indeed an important factor causing ED, which however is always caused by multiple factors. If so, such men may have poor ability to exercise and fast walk. So, consult Urologist for specific ...Read more

Is DHT (dihydrotestosterone) related to testosterone level and other hormones?

Is DHT (dihydrotestosterone) related to testosterone level and other hormones?

Yes: Testosterone is broken down into Dht & Estradiol (e2). Too much Dht is associated w/hair loss & prostate enlargement. Too much e2 is associated w/gynecomastia, eg nipple sensitivity and/or male breast development (moobs). Different medications can stop metabolism of t but can also upset balance (think of a seesaw). So if Dht goes down, e2 might go up. And vice versa. Talk to doc & monitor levels. ...Read more

Propecia (finasteride): In the past few years, medicine has made tremendous strides in the treatment of men's hair loss. With the advent of 5-alpha-reductace inhibitors such as Propecia (finasteride) and the evolution of surgical hair restoration, living with noticeable hair loss is no longer inevitable. For the first time in the history it is now possible to stop or slow the progression of hair loss and to replace lost hair. ...Read more

Is it safe to take DHT blocker during puberty?

Unknown: This hasn't been studied, to my knowledge, but i'd guess Dht is pretty important during puberty, so it's probably not a good idea to block it during that critical phase. Personally, i wouldn't take the chance. And why would you want to do it anyway? ...Read more

How can you increase DHT (dihydrotestosterone) levels?

Why do u want more?: Testosterone is metabolized (broken down) into Dht & Estradiol (e2). Testosterone is anabolic (makes muscles grow). Dht is androgenic (makes you more male). But too much Dht can also lead to hair loss and prostate enlargement. So we don't typically try to raise Dht (although if you take an aromatase inhibitor to shut down e2, you might raise Dht via seesaw effect), rather we lower Dht via 5ari. ...Read more

Does dht removes from scalp automatically or it remain permenantly ?

Does dht removes from scalp automatically or it remain permenantly ?

Wrong question: Dihydrotestosterone is one of many hormones present in blood + all tissues.These hormones are constantly being produced, then used or dissipated. There is a constant flux. The hair follicles of the scalp are genetically programed to respond in different ways to this hormone. To a great extent they produce it themselves and then respond to it. The same amount of male hormones may lead to balding in ...Read more
