Hi Ladies. I am 31years old, 5'4 115 and healthy except for hair loss. I have been struggling with slowly thinning since my mid 20's. I started minoxodil at that time and it worked well for a few years. The past year my hair started thinning again and I went on Diane 35 (not under the care of a Dr.) becuase all the Derms I went to see wouldnt Rx any meds saying, they arent proven to work(Spironolactone, Finasteride, etc). Since being on the Diane 4 months, my hair looks a lot worse than before I started. I can see more scalp and my front part is thinner including my hair has receded a little, as well as a thinner vertex. I do see hairs popping up over the top, and wonder if they are regrowth or miniturizing. I desparately need some advice as to stay on this medication a little longer (I do see a new Derm next week, and I pray he will RX me Spironolactone or Something!) or should I stop it now, or switch to another BCP? The hair loss seems to be very fast and I am questining if it is even Androgenetic Alopecia. I am not shedding a lot. just about 100/day. Thank you for listening!!
