Progesterone increasing hair loss?
I have only begun progesterone replacement for a short period of time but have already noticed an increase of my already existing problem of hair loss. This being a little bit surprising because seeing how it is a supposed alpha - 5 in inhibitor, my only explanation is that it is indeed increasing estrogen dominance.. which is in turn increasing the need for the conversion of Test to DHT seeing how it a more aggressive androgen by it's own right and acts as a counter-balance.
This is just of course my general theory which I believe applies to the majority of cases involving MPB.(especially from a young age such as my case)
I was actually a bit weary to begin with a high dose seeing as many sources advice men to stay around the 10-20 mg threshold but after browsing this site for awhile but I settled on starting with 40mg initially in hopes of avoiding increasing the already implemented estrogen dominance and move up if needed.. so with these above symptoms in mind, should I increase dosage or persist a bit longer?
I should note I have noticed some positive effects such as being a bit more calm and slightly better erections.. so I am confused to say the least.
