  • Propecia for hair regrowth?

    Hello all,
    After months waiting for his hair to come back normal we finally went to the dermatologist for answers. She recomended Propecia and rogaine. I am skeptical and would like to hear your thoughts on this. We can't understand why his hair didn't come back. He has a bald spot on his crown and very thin all around. Also, the texture is soft and fly away. Help!

    Propecia can permanetly kill a guys libido.

    Any knowledgable guy who cares about his sex life wouldnt touch it with a 50 foot poll.

      For my part I wouldn't encourage the use of anything that stimulates the growth of anything, but that's just me.
