i am in my forties and have low T; 305 ng. i have used cypionate at 100 mgs per week with great success along with some hcg. even though i do have hair i cant help that wonder : eventually the T will cause hair loss if i am on long enough. does it take about 6 months to a year for dht to build up so much that hair loss will occur whether you have a gene for baldness or not ? is it a case where T at 100-125 mgs per week will eventually cause anyone to lose hair?
that is my concern because as i said, i do have hair and kind of cherish it.
btw: reason for low T is due to using AAS on and off for 15 years. that said, i never ever went heavy and always took 3 months off. i did use deca quite a bit but not heavt dosages and i have no tumors or anything else. my LH is low as well which really shows its an HPTA issue.

IMO the T might hurry it along IF you are susceptible to hair loss. If you're not you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

^^^ Agree

DHT concentration in the scalp is one of the contributing factors for hair loss, but, I can't seem to find much evidence linking serum DHT levels and increased concentrations of DHT in scalp. I think this is where your genetics play a role.

If you are concerned, you could always take something to inhibit 5-alpha reduction and use something to block DHT directly on scalp.

Hairs is overrated , long you test is pimping f-it,of course my has been nill for a few years now!!! lol


IMO the T might hurry it along IF you are susceptible to hair loss Yeah if its in your jeans its only spend the process up at high dose , I not a 100% but I don't think if your values are super low and you jus supplementing back to a normal level, you might not have as much to worries about . There are a few things you can take to you keep hair loss down minimal. Rogaine is otc and there is Propecia which you need a scrip for unless you get the Research chem version And the gernaric name for that is finasteride.

Depends mostly on your genetics.

If you have used aas on and off for 15 years and don't have hair loss then you have your answer.

its got everything to do with genetics, I have experienced some receeding in my early twenties and it basically stopped I started with TRT in my late forties and at this time I starting weight training and have been cycling too and the hairloss has returned and I have a history of it in my family ,, it all depends on how you or your scalp responds to DHT because it is a by product of most compounds and it destroys the hair follicle and if you are affected by it then it IS GOING TO HAPPEN,,,, I have lost alot of my hair since I have been on TRT an of course when I decide to do a cycle

I have been on TRT also and have a history of hairloss in my family and yes my hair has started to fall out again I experienced hairloss in my mid twenties for a few years and it stopped leaving me with a receeded hairline and since the TRT and I have also done a few cycles also it has returned.. the TRT was my reason for starting my weight training and I have had to accept that hairloss is what I am going to deal with,, yep its a bummer but looking like shit is far more worse
