I just read this...Does anyone know if it's true? Or maybe nobody really knows. I'm in perimenopause, and my hair is thinning and shedding like crazy. I'm back to trying Rogaine after ditching it (just didn't have faith in it, still unsure, of course). Then I read this. My family does not have a history of hair loss. My mom's hair is a bit thinner, but it's always been thin and she's now 73. Should I continue with the Rogaine? Also feel like it might not benefit me because my hair is falling out everywhere, not just on sides or top. Ugh. Scared to try anything else that's more 'systemic'. Thanks for advice!
