female 36 with androgenic alopecia..pls helpHello,
I am female,36 yrs old and have androgenic alopecia. I started thinning on top when I was 17,since then it had gotten progressively worse. My mother also has aga but does nothing to treat it. Then 8 yrs ago in 2001 my derm put me on diane 35. (androgen blocker)
Here's the thing, on the postitive end it has stopped my hair from thinning further (no regrowth though) and my skin is clear. However, I have side effects that I'm not willing to deal with anymore from being on diane. IE: low libido(no libido), anxiety,depression and weight gain from excess hunger.
I am wanting to get off diane 35 now but am afraid because I know I will begin to thin again. (also I tried to get off it last year but the acne and hair loss were quite bad and so I got scared back onto it)I am not concerned anymore about growing new hair I just want to halt it.
Is there a natural way to help my hair loss as I'd like to find an alternate way if possible.
Thank you all, I appreciate your time and advice.
