    Female Hair Loss (androgenic alopecia?)

    Hi all,

    is there anything that can be done about female hair loss due to hormones? Has anyone had good results from taking Birth Control Pills (brands?), supplements, specific hair care regimens, etc.?

    Thanks everyone!

    I think the bcp Yasmin works really well because it suppresses the ovaries production of androgens (i.e. testosterone). Good luck - I know how stressful and frightening it is to feel that you're losing hair!

    I've lost about half of my hair and am a woman in early 20s. I KNOW how frustrating, depressing, and devastating this symptom is.

    Several months ago I switched to Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo, heard much controversial research that too much estrogen can make it fall out... Haven't noticed much difference, still shedding and not sure if growing out (short hairs may be breakage). I DID hear that Yasmin is supposed to be the best for hair loss, though. I don't have insurance until Feb 2006, so I'm on what I've got till then!

    As far as supplements, I am on:
    Hair/skin/nails vita

    Also, I just started taking:
    Evening Primrose Oil
    Omega 3 fish oil

    I heard these supplements help as well! Good luck!
