Re: I am a30 yr old female and why is my hair thinning and falling out ?
Have you checked for mild PCOS? (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) It is a hormonal imbalance that can include thinning hair. It will cause thinning hair, especially in a male baldness pattern (at the temples.) Other symptoms includes unusual or missing periods, darker or more hair in "male" areas like face, chest, etc. I am your age and PCOS has been causing thinning hair for a few years for me. It's not noticable to others, but I definitely see it when I'm combing my hair.
