Using progesterone for male hair loss
Hi, I'm a 26 year old male and I started losing my hair around 5 years ago. I had began weight training in the gym and I'm guessing that the increase in testosterone started my hair loss.
I've been using progesterone for a few weeks now and I just want to make sure my dosage is where it needs to be. I started out with a very low dose of about 5mg per day for a week or so and now I'm up to around 15mg-18mg per day.
Before progesterone, I'm almost positive that I had an enlarged prostate. I would have difficulty urinating and sometimes ejaculations were painful. Progesterone has completely fixed that issue for me from the very first dose. I'm also more calm and generally in a good mood. I also sleep much much better. I haven't really noticed any negatives so far to taking progesterone.
I haven't noticed any new hair growth unfortunately and my hair still continues to shed at about the same rate as it did before progesterone. I've been hesitant to increase the dose to 100mg because I don't want to have any feminizing side effects or a substantial increase in hair loss. I've read quite a few success stories online about how some men have greatly thickened up their hair by taking progesterone.
How much progesterone should a 26 year old male be taking for hair loss?
