Female hair loss Anonymous 14509

I have been losing hair like crazy and I'm pretty certain I have androgenetic alopecia. I don't have any obvious bald spots but my hair has thinned out like crazy. I had to shave my head because I couldn't deal with the stress of it all. Are there any bald s out there willing to give some advice on how to deal with it? I'm considering starting minoxidil and/or wearing wigs but I would love some input from anons who are going through the same thing.

Accept it or embrace it, whichever comes first.
Yeah, it sucks. But lucky for you shaved heads on women are fucking sexy and with confidence you can rock it.
If you can't accept it, wear a cute hat.

>pretty sure

Have you recently gone off birth control or changed your prescription drastically?
Or recently had a baby?
That's what caused my hair to fall out—going off the pill.
Get a diagnosis before taking any do it yourself treatments.

My sister and mom have issues with hair loss so I think it's just my genes fucking me over. I did make a list of things that could be causing the hair loss (if it's not genetic but I'm fairly certain it is) and I'm currently trying to see if I can narrow down the possibilities.

Good advice anon. I'm planning on being very open about it, that way if I try out wigs the people who know me would cut me some slack if the wig looks bad lol.

Don't want to derail from op's post but I have something similar looking like picrel, except it's not as severe and has been going on for years without any progression. Do I have some form of alopecia or is my hair just really thin? It especially looks borderline balding when it's really greasy.

The pic in the original post is a picture of advanced androgenetic alopecia. If your hair looks similarly, it's probably alopecia. If you want to be sure, get a scalp biopsy at the dermatologist.

Your best course of action is consulting a specialist. Hairloss medication has the potential of causing erectile dysfunction in men because it fucks with testosterone, but I think it should be ok for women
