    In 2010 I've been diagnosed with Alopecia androgenetica from my dermatologist. He precribed me Minoxidil 2,5% but it didn't work. I asked him for a prescription of 5% but he doesn't want t do that because they don't give it to woman, he said. So I went to another dermatologist and she prescribe me immediately 5%. It worked good for me and I saw regrowth of my hairs. I lost many hairs and a few months after the use of the minoxidil it stopped. Now we are 6 years later and I have lost tons of hair again from February 2016. When I wash my hair, the sink is full of hairs and with brushing my hair, it all comes out. Have to clean my bathroom almost every day because of it. I let my blood checked and it's ok. Now I am on a regime : minoxidil 5% 2 times a day since 2010, Diane 35 since 2006, and Nizoral 2 % from this week. I have lot's of ichy scalp and I can go to see a dermatologist half June.

    Feeling so anxious because I've lost half of my hair now...

    Did you get your Ferritin levels checked? Its one the most common causes of hair loss...
    And its different from Haemoglobin.

    I know how you feel in the past three months I've lost 50% of my hair and im beyond devastated. I'm 41 years old. I went to the doctor and got blood work done and waiting on results. I was diagnosed with hirsutism in 2009. I took Spironolactone for eight years and it worked great, but it doesn't seem to work for me anymore. I need a Dr. In the U.S that will prescribe a anti androgen. From everything I read everything is for men and nothing for women besides Rogaine
