Hello....androgenic alopecia is hair loss that occurs due to an underlying susceptibility of hair follicles to shrinkage due to the influence of androgenic hormones.you cannot diagnose it on your own... Harmonal assay and other tests are required to confirm diagnosis .. Moreover finesteride has side effects. Consult dermatologist.
