Hi amazing ladies out there! I am new in this forum and have been going through all your post for few days. This forum is so supportive and helpful. Sending hugs to everyone! I want to share my story in short first. I have noticed thinning hair when I was in my early twenties. Around same time I was diagnosed as hypothyroid. While I was on medication for thyroid, it was actually hair I was worried about. I asked my endocrinologist, also visited dermatologist but none cared much. I remember using Minoxidil and leaving it because my derm said if it does not work within 15 days, it is not gonna work ever. Ahh whole of my life I was maltreated and nobody ever explained what was going on. On my 30, I visited this derm who did mesotherapy on my scalp. After one month of twice weekly session, he gave up and said there is nothing that can save my hair. He did not suggest me Minoxidil either!! In all these years I lost my precious hair. My scalp is visible now. I just manage to go out without any wig because I have curly hair, so it is still working. But I am sure I will have to wear wigs in 6 months max. This year, I started shedding severely. In last 6 months, I have lost 30-40% of what I had before. I don't know what is goin on! I have seen 2 derms already, they said I have Androgenetic Alopecia. I have started using Minoxidil regularly for 2 months now. (regrets!). I think I am seeing dred shed still now which breaks my heart again. Don't know if I will ever see any positive results. Please share your thoughts if some of you have similar story.
