I am new to the site and a little confused by everything. I am 21 years old and started shedding around age 18. I went to a dermatologist about a year ago and even though he didn't diagnose me with anything, he did say that I had low iron and high testosterone and prescribed 150 mg of Spironolactone as well as rogaine. I lazily only used the two for about three months, not long enough to see results, but I don't remember shedding. Since then my hair loss has gotten worse, my scalp now being VERY visible all over, making me think that I have Androgenetic Alopecia. I guess my question is have any of the younger women out there had good results using rogaine? I've read that the younger you are the better it works, but I am in depressed mode and would like to hear it from people my own age who are going through the same thing. Are there any other steps I can take to promote hair regrowth (vitamins, bc, topicals) and have any of you guys had success with them?
