HI, this is my first post here. I am 28 yrs old and just beginning to experience thinning. So far it is only affecting the crown as far as I can tell. It is not bad enough for others to notice, but I know this is the beginning of the end. I did have a baby 8 months ago but I think I'm experiencing more than postpartum loss. My grandmother and both aunts on my mom's side have serious hair loss, though my mother somehow dodged the bullet. Anyway, based on my family history, I saw this coming but it still hurts. I also have PCOS but have never been a classic case. I'm thin and have been able to have three children on my own. I do suffer from some acne and irregular periods. I fear that my family history + PCOS = double whammy I haven't been diagnosed yet. But for the past week or so I've been counting hairs after each shower. I lose 40-60 at that time plus 1-2 every time I run a hand over my hair during the day. One day I even lost almost 90 hairs after a shower but I'm thinking (hoping) it was because I didn't wash my hair the day before- so maybe I lost double the next day?? Anyway, I send a message and photos to a hair loss specialist in Austin (Dr. Mcgrath). He called back the next day and said he did see thinning on top but needs to see me in person. The consultation is free but I won't be able to go down there until November. In the meantime he said the thinning is significant enough that he thinks "Rogaine won't hurt". I'm a little hesitant for several reasons 1) I know once I go on I can't come off unless I want more shedding, 2) I could end up losing a lot more hair at first that might or night not regrow, and 3) I've heard it can be greasy and the last thing I need is greasy, thinner-looking hair up top. What do you think? I'm devastated and can't bring myself to even tell my husband what is on my mind. Also, I'd like to post a pic of my scalp so you can tell me what you think. How do I do that?
