    Has anyone experienced a shed of all their sickly Thin fine Androgenetic Alopecia hair AFTER starting treatment ?? I understand if sheds happens not on treatment it’s probably progression of Androgenetic Alopecia.

    I’ve been diagnosed with Androgenetic Alopecia and pretty sure it’s what has decimated my hair over the last 10+ years.
    Needless to say I have a LOT of thin fine regrowth that doesn’t really get longer than -2 inches. This is in my part line where it looks the thinnest.

    I’ve had tremendous success halting the gross shedding from 60+ hair to less than 10 in the last 3 months with metformin. My problem is from elevated androgens from pcos . I’m also on revivogen (3 months) ane Rogaine foam (last 8 years) and laser comb (6 months).

    BUT
    I am now experiencing a shed of all the short thin whispy Androgenetic Alopecia growth.

    I’m wondering if this is signaling a full recovery since I’m not shedding gross amount ? Also I never had this type of shed when I was OFF treatments. Also my part does look tighter somehow.


    But if it’s a bad sign then I def want to hop on something stronger for the dht...

    I shed them before I get regrowth. Usually 1-3 months before.

    Is the fall uniform? Or is it fluctuating ? Like 50-100 one day and the 100-150 another day ?

    I have a bunch of terminal hair growing healthy and normal. I also have a smal crop of thinner sickly hairs in my part line. Everyday I lose those mostly. My terminal hair shed is way down (5-10). These changes only after I hopped on hormonal treatment (metformin) and hit month 4-5 of laser therapy.
    Only time will tell if those sickly hairs actually grow after shedding.

    It’s uniform, pretty sure I no longer have cte since my terminal hair shed has ceased (5-10 lost daily).

    The small thin hair shed is also uniform - I find 20ish all over my pillows and bathroom sink.

    These changes happened only AFTER starting treatments. That’s why I’m not sure if it’s a good sign.

    Overall my part line looks tighter though.

    Just to add I’ve been suffering from Androgenetic Alopecia since after puberty (17-18) so Maybe those fine and intermediate hairs have been there forever, and the new hormonal landscape is “shocking” them out. Not sure if anyone has had a similar experience ?
