Understanding Hair loss and treatment options: Minoxidil, prp and progesterone

Minoxidil has not been shown to negatively impact males fertility. I suggest seeing a hair loss expert to evaluate and go over your condition and provide you information about your best treatment options. There are great non-invasive options like PRP/progesterone and/or hair transplantation. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
