I have written extensively about female hairline shedding in a post which can be found below. Read it and then followup with a doctor
I can not advise what to do without knowing more about your story and seeing your scalp up close. Telogen effluvium, by definition, is temporary in most people and resolves once the trigger is identified. I think the key question based on your story is whether you have androgenetic alopecia rather than true telogen effluvium (or whether you have both). Minoxidil is required forever if the diagnosis is androgenetic alopecia and only short term if the diagnosis is androgenetic alopecia. Please discuss with a hair specialist.
