PCOS hair loss
a year ago I found out I had PCOS (because of increased body hair growth and scalp hair loss).
My doctor put me on Diane 35 (I'm from Europe), Minoxidil 2% and Dexamethasone 0,25 mg every evening for 3 months (DHEA-s was slightly elevated).
After 3 months my T and DHEA-s became really low, so I discontinued the dex.
The thing is that one month into starting the above mentioned treatment my hair began thinning faster than ever. I did have a slightly elevated shed during that time and I started losing a lot of short strands.
My question is - is it possible that dexamethasone have caused more harm than good as regards my hair? Why would my hair thin out quicker while on it?
Thank you in advance,
