Hi, I am 30 and diagnosed Androgenetic Alopecia recently through biopsy. Had extensive bloodwork and ruled out iron, thyroid etc. Stopping and restarting my high androgen birth control a year ago caused TE and then triggered Androgenetic Alopecia. I switched to Desogen (low androgen) birth control last week. I tried spironolactone for 5 days over New Years but it gave me horrible insomnia so I stopped it. Recently tried it again and the same insomnia occurred so am off it for now. One dermatologist said to start Rogaine and the other said not to because of the bad initial shed and to do Spironolactone, BC and platelet rich plasma. My hair has thinned so much in the last few months and rapidly changed to dry and brittle. Trying to figure out if I should keep trying the Spironolactone and combat the insomnia somehow or stay off it and start Rogaine. Also debating PRP and laser cap but don't want to start everything at once. Should I do Rogaine before trying PRP/laser or try those first? Also not sure if Desogen is a good BC. Seeing Dr Redmond in New York at the end of this month to get advice on the hormone aspect.
