Yeah its bs that its only your mothers side, it can be inherited from either parent and it can skip generations.
Also, there is an emerging theory that an increasing amount of white males are predisposed to MPB. Something like 75% of males experience some form of recession and/or thinning by their 40s, suggesting MPB may not be a “defect” as such, but rather just varying levels of genetic sensitivity to androgens in the scalp.
Anyway if you follow the latest research, better treatments aren’t far off, another 2-3 years at the most. Theres also a lot you can do to slow it down or halt it completely, some even experience regrowth.
There is also a lot you can do with current treatments (yes even without finasteride, which i would not touch with a 10 foot pole) to slow down or halt MPB in its tracks. This site here is a fairly good resource for those just now reading into treatment: http://www.follacure.com/
You could even purchase these forthcoming treatments that are being researched from chinese suppliers, as many on hair loss sites do. However the problem there is: cost, reliability, and most of all finding a formula that works.
Personally I think a slight amount of recession is a good look for most dudes, it makes you look a bit more mature/masculine. That said, if its getting to the point where its obvious you are balding, just fucking shave it off and get a tan. You don’t want to be one of those pathetic comb over retards.[/quote]
could you site your source on the 'not getting it from your mother? last time i read about it it was pretty much conclusive that it was carried on the X chromosome.
if that is indeed the case, it has to come from your mother.
you cant get an X chromosome from your father and be a male - in the VAST majority of cases, at least. If you get an x and y from your father, you end up a female with trisomy - XYX.
you could have chromosome breakage and cross attachment between parental chromosomes. But if I remember back to college, that is one freaky rare and usually has other issues.[/quote]
this, so if your mother’s father is bald you have a 50% or more chance of carrying the gene. It will also be dependent on a few other factors whether you actually develop it or not
