Im a 40yo Male and I just had some blood work done and although my Testosterone levels are withing the normal range, they are on the low side said my doctor. He prescribed androgel. Ive read all over the interwebs about a possibility of hair loss. Well this makes me very scared to take it. I have no signs of male pattern baldness and im quite attached to having hair as opposed to being bald. Can anyone chime in with personal experience/advice/etc....? Im on the fence here and would like some feedback. Thx!

I don't have as much hair as I used to, and I understand this is not uncommon! It seems like the sort of thing Updike would have written about, or some other self-reflective male writer of a certain age, and I'd like to be able to read (and ideally quote) something well-written or epigrammatic for when the subject comes up.

I am losing my hair, but I'm comfortable with the fact that soon I'll either be a guy with thinning hair, or a guy with a shaved head. What I'm worried about is that I may just have unsightly moles on my head. [more inside]

Have you ever had a hair transplant procedure to treat male pattern baldness? The last time someone asked about this here in Ask Metafilter, everyone said, "Don't get plugs! Shave your head!", but there were no testimonials from guys who had actually experienced the surgery. If you've had the surgery, when did you have it, what sort of procedure did you have done, were the results reasonably natural, and would you recommend it? [more inside]
I'm a mid-20s male who recently noticed some hair loss around the time I stopped taking the anti-depressant Remeron. Some online research tells me that hair loss is a fairly rare but not unheard-of side effect of this medication. How can I tell if my hair loss is actually from the medication, and how long does it typically take to start seeing new hair growth after stopping such a medication? [more inside]

It just occurred to me that the spot on your scalp that receives the focus of the force of the water in a shower coincides with the spot where hair loss in MPB first appears? Is this just a coincidence?
