I am 36 , 6’1 225 and a former heavy AAS user. (mostly tren / test cycles) for 10 years. Alot if my cycles were trial and error. Done recklessly, under the influence of douchebag military guys in my 20s. Since i have had my daughter i cut out the heavy cycles. I figured going from 160 pounds to 220 was good enough.
I have crashed my E2, given myself and recovered from gyno, survived insane episodes of madness caused my tren. Basicly every bad side affect a dummy could have but I have NEVER experienced pattern baldness even during these reckless days.
I have been on trt for about 2 years at 100 mg test E Per week sub q and didnt have any problems with hairloss that i know of.
My life took some economic turmoil During covid-19 and i decided to up my test to 500mg per week and hit the gym hard! as a way to cope.
Gains are good. Diet is good. But i started noticing baldness at the crown area. I was shocked! I am also 2 weeks in on a tren ace cycle that was planned on lasting 2 months just to give me a good body for summer.
I just decided to dump the tren Based on reading it can cause other factors for balding and go back to my 100mg test cycle while adding 100mg finastride and using topical rogain and as well as miz shampoo
I underatand the side affect risks of fina. I took it once Foolishly out of fear 10 years ago when i wasnt even losing hair.
I am wondering if this makes sense to use on TRT, and also if the tren ace should have more exit time than its halflife before starting the fina.
As much as i love the feeling and look of being ON , currently id rather just focus on an athletic lifestyle and keeping my hair if possible. And give it a good year to see if it corrects. If not i will just go balls to the wall and accept baldness.
No need to scold me on past mistakes. I know how foolish my AAS use was when i was 25-30.
