Female Hair Loss Options

Many doctors consider hair loss to be more complicated in women then in men.  A complete history is needed including signs of low or high thyroidism, diet/anemia issues, menstruation issues and evidence of testosteone excess.  Once these other diseases have been evaluated and excluded topical medications and transplantation can be considered.  Good Luck!

Hair Loss In Women

The answer to this question depends on a multitude of factors. I would need to know your age, family history of hair loss, any illnesses you have or medications you are taking, traumatic events you’ve suffered, if you are or have been pregnant, if you’re on any hormone therapy, etc. I advise you to have some blood tests done to rule out anemia and/or thyroid dysfunction, amongst other illnesses that cause hair loss. You should also consult a dermatologist for a thorough and comprehensive assessment on why you’ve lost so much of your hair. Depending on the extent of the loss and the cause, there may be a solution for you in a prescribed medication, Rogaine, or hair transplant.
