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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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.

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.

If we are lucky, a colleague or two will point both you and me in the right direction. ...Read more
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
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
