Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

I was taking a medicine for a month that made my testosterone raise and I experienced hair loss so I quit taking it. Will my hair grow back?

It should. . .: So let me get this straight. You're a 26yo female who was prescribed testosterone? Hair loss associated w/t is due to excess t being converted into Dht (dihydrotestosterone). Once that level drops back to normal, hair loss should resolve. Of course, hair loss might also be coincidental to another health stressor.

I have a full head of hair but was wondering if having sex 2-3 times a day will cause permanent hair loss due to an increase of testosterone and dht?

I have a full head of hair but was wondering if having sex 2-3 times a day will cause permanent hair loss due to an increase of testosterone and dht?

No: The stuff on the internet about sex (by yourself or with a partner) making men bald is all fake, especially the talk about "testosterone and DHT". It's mostly the product of one of the cults, intended to frighten teenaged males. Ignore it, and be angry that you've been lied to by people who want to manipulate you. And 2-3x/day? Good for you. Enjoy being young. ...Read more

Ok to take fish oil, protein powder, creatine and lift weights which will increase testosterone if I am suffering from hair loss and want to prevent it?

Ok to take fish oil, protein powder, creatine and lift weights which will increase testosterone if I am suffering from hair loss and want to prevent it?

OK but won't help.: All of those things (or at least the weight lifting) will be good for your general health. Unfortunately, increasing testosterone won't affect hair loss, which has to do with the hormone receptors in the hair shafts themselves. The only proven hair loss preventatives are rogaine, (minoxidil) which is otc, and finasteride, a prescription med that your doctor can prescribe if you have no contraindications. ...Read more

If a man suffers from hair loss and took a supplement that increases testosterone naturally would it mean more DHT?

If a man suffers from hair loss and took a supplement that increases testosterone naturally would it mean more DHT?

Dubious stuff: Pop claims about baldness, testosterone, DHT, and supplements involving either is rubbish, much of it made up out of whole cloth. A man's hair loss is basically programmed genetically and expressed when there's enough of the right hormone around. Even If you get the effects on muscle / erections you want from a supplement, which seldom happens, hair loss is unlikely to accelerate. ...Read more
