    I started bulking last summer and went on a clean bulk for about 3 months and i was up to 207 at 5'10

    But then i noticed my hair had begun thinning really bad, so i went to a doctor and got some Rogaine and Propecia to see if it would help. Well i took that and i grew back most of the hair i had before i started lifting really hard

    My doctor said that lifting weights may have promoted my hair loss, now it is one year later and i now weight 178 but have much more hair then before !!!!

    Now i am scared to go lift heavy again, anyone else have this problem and what do you guys suppose i should do ?

    No... The small test gain won't affect hair loss. You are just naturally inclined to lose hair and it happened while you were working out.

    see that could also be true, but i don't wanna take the chance

    i would rather have a full head of hair then be some thick bastard that is balding!!!

    That is why i am so scared now to bulk and get back into lifting hard again

    Your genectics caused your hairloss. Weightlifting had nothing to do with it.

    My cousin started losing his hair after he started taking creatine. He blames it on the creatine :ugh:

    Finasteride may promote muscle mass by increasing test levels up to 17%. It may also promote bitch tits though, which I have noticed on myself to a small degree. It is going away the lower my BF is.
