Hair loss from PCOS - options
3. low level laser therapy
4. platelet rich plasma
5. hair transplantation.
You are a candidate for hair transplantation (in the mid-scalp area) based on the photos uploaded, so you may want to learn more about this option and visit several surgeons. Preventing further loss is important - so minoxidil, low level laser and PRP are important to learn about.
Spironolactone must never be used during pregnancy. It causes irregular periods in 80 % of women. If periods are irregular, women in PCOS should consider an oral contraceptive to help regulate the periods. This may reduce the risk of some types of cancers. Speak to an endocrinologist, gynaecologist or dermatologist who specialists in PCOS should periods be irregular.
PRP and LLLLT are good options for hair loss secondary to PCOS

Thank you for the question.
Loss of hair is a natural process when it is between the limits that the body can restore them. When the capacity of the body to restore the hair loss is beaten by the excessive hair loss then we can name this situation something that should be treated. Women started to experience balding even more in the last 2 decades. It is getting more and more common also in women population. However it is also good to know that this problem is also treatable when it is present in women.
To obtain alive hair follicles implanted in higher rates, the latest technique being used is not the only manner, it is also affected by compliance of implantation area that we found a better way to improve as a result of our researches, The Organic Hair Transplantation. By this new and unique Organic Hair Transplantation Technique, before the extraction and implantation processes; we regenerate the implantation area with injection of stem cell enriched fat tissue. Regeneration of cells in target area before FUE transplantation with the support of stromal stem cells results in higher rate of alive thicker hair follicles.
