I would start off with the 2%. I'm not sure how common it is for women to use a higher strength so it's better off to be safe.

Re: what stength rogaine should i go for

I know how <YOU> feel, as I suffer from slight Alopecia Areata and I used Minoxidil on my whole scalp as a precaution.
I had asked the doctor and he said it was alright to do so.

I think I had overdose with the Minoxidil and it had caused a great amount of hairloss to me.

So instead of a small problem, it created a bigger mess...
So <PLEASE> be careful of Minoxidil uses..

I would think it is better to start off with the 2% concentration first...
