Hair loss is a sensitive issue for men of any age, and can also have an influence on a man’s self-esteem. Androgenic alopecia is the medical terminology for male pattern baldness, which is a condition in which a man starts losing his hairs in a particular pattern. You start experiencing thinning of hairs from the crown and temple of your head. As a result, over a period of time there is a formation of a horseshoe shape on the sides of the head and your crown remains bald. If you are experiencing shedding of hair during washing or brushing, with minimal regrowth, you may be suffering from male pattern hair loss.

Hair loss has been known to be connected to underlying health complications such as diabetes or lupus. Some experts also believe that it can be aggravated by stress, anxiety, poor diet, depression, intake of toxic substance, hormonal imbalance, ageing, nervous disorders, injury and impairment or hormonal imbalance. However, the main reason reported by millions for male pattern baldness is sensitivity of the hair follicles dihydrotestosterone (DHT) hormone. It is a by-product of the male hormone known as testosterone. The conversion of testosterone to DHT happens with the help of an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. Every time the quantity of DHT increases in body, the hair follicles are affected. These hormones circulate with blood and result in shrinking of hair follicles. As you grow older, the growth of hairs stop completely and you develop a bald patch.

There are some surgical treatments like flap surgery, scalp reduction and a hair transplant, which can treat hair loss. However, these treatments are very expensive and can cause serious side effects. Men, suffering from male pattern baldness, are usually prescribed a clinically proven oral medication called Propecia. The primary active component of this medication is Finasteride which acts as a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. It works towards preventing the conversion of testosterone to DHT, so that your hair follicles remain healthy. Propecia pills have been proven to be highly effective at preventing further hair loss and may also encourage hair regrowth in some men. You should take one tablet of Propecia every day and to get visible changes in just few months.

You should take this medication only after a proper consultation with a licensed doctor as you can experience some side effects while using this medication. The potential side effects may include pain in the testicular area, reduced sex drive, decrease in semen production, low libido and erectile dysfunction, although they are rare. These are also temporary effects and tend to go away once you discontinue taking the medication. You can buy this medication from any of the registered online pharmacies and opt for a free and confidential consultation with licensed doctor or medical professional. The consultation is vital as it makes sure the medication is safe and suitable for you. You would be asked to discontinue this treatment, if you are allergic to Finasteride or if you have any issues related to regular working of the liver such as hepatic failure.
