hello doctor, i am currently undergoing MTF hormone replacement therapy. i have been taking both spironoactone and estridol for about six months. not only this but i have recently had an orchiectomy. before i began i was at around a norwood 2 or 3 and am currently 24 years old. i was wondering if i can expect that my hair loss to permanently halt after such an experience.
at the moment i am also curious as to if the spiro is still needed after an orchiectomy or if it will still halt without the further use of the spiro. i ask this on account of the many myths associated with this and was hoping you could speak from any experience you may have had with similar individuals.
Thank you for you time
I have never seen or treated a balding patient with an orchiectomy (removal of the testicles). In theory, it should help with respect to male pattern androgenic alopecia. Time will tell.
