I’m not considering going off T, I just have a question for people who have and I haven’t found the answer anywhere. That’s one of the shitty parts of transitioning, possibly losing hair. So far I’ve been lucky but I think my hairline is thinning a bit on the sides, like I think I said to you in a private message the other day. Btw I will respond to that, hopefully tomorrow. I have had some negative changes on T but I figure I got to take the bad with the good (which most of it is) and there are always solutions for my problems, so that’s good. I have found that thinking like that helps me generally throughout my life.
I remember 1 guy who actually went off testosterone and one of the big reasons was because he started losing his hair, and and he described himself, he is very vain and hair is a big part of his culture. Once he went off testosterone, his hair started coming back, and now he has been off T for about 2 years and it’s back to the way it used to be. But with going off T, you have to accept the female changes that will come back.
I’m glad that rogaine is working for you! You keep your hair cut pretty short, so if you ever needed a 2nd option, you could get a hair tattoo. To learn more about it, go on my /tagged/balding. I would link you to it, but my fucking PC is being a dick and freezes when I go on that page. So if you decide that your current treatment isn’t your thing, or it doesn’t work as well as you like, know that there are other options.
