I developed mild gynecomastia from taking Saw Palmetto during a period of 4 days to treat my hair loss. Can gynecomastia reverse on its own?

It'll go away: It'll probably reverse or you can see about outpatient surgery. Saw palmetto isn't going to help your hair loss nearly as much as real medical or surgical treatment. Or you can decide to embrace your masculinity and your genetics and work on fitness instead. 95% of a man's looks is his athleticism, regardless of where he has hair, and you'll feel and be healthier.

Not much: For a long time it was believed that saw palmetto helped ease the urinary symptoms due to an enlarged prostate (bph).
