Female pattern baldness

Hair loss in women is a very common problem and it may cause severe emotional distress. Around 55% of the females suffer from hair loss problems and its prevalence increase with advancing age. Female hair loss and male hair loss are different, because they both have different hormonal profile, physiological function & genetic constituents.

We have seen patients starts Minoxidil, anti-androgenic drugs or biotin by their own and feel that it’s not working for them. This is because hair loss in female is complicated and need proper work up and consultation.

Many a times hair loss is progressive which will be realised as thinning of hairs, thinning of pony tails, visible scalp on parting the hairs. Also, it could be seasonal or episodic and you feel loosing hair at frequent intervals.

Hair loss may starts all of a sudden and your feel losing hairs all the time. For eg. if you had any fever, emotional stress, keto diet or weight loss program, you may feel hair loss.
