Hi all. I developed alopecia areata last summer after starting Letrozole, a fertility medication. I had one large spot which was starting to grow back when I developed another. A few months after that, another. I am now pregnant, so I can't get any treatment or medication, but I can feel THREE new spots developing.

For those of you who have had mild alopecia (a spot or two) progress into something more serious, what did that trajectory look like? How long did it take? Did you developer larger spots, more spots, or developer alopecia totalis/universalis? I feel like I will handle this better if I am mentally prepared.
