Hello everyone. I am 28 years old and started to notice my hair thinning about 2 years ago. I was working night shift at the time and thought that my hair loss had to do with me working nights 7 days in a row and then having 7 days off but switching back to sleeping at night and being awake during the day. I have been working normal hours and sleeping normal for the past year and still notice thinning.
My hair thinning doesn't seem to be following the standard male pattern. It's almost like it is following a female pattern with hair thinning all throughout the crown area. How likely is this? My dad has a full head of hair that is very thick, but my mom has very thin hair and very noticeable that her hair is thinning. My hair line is still intact, it's just that all around my crown my hair is thinning.
1) Has any other males out there experienced this type of thinning, almost following a female pattern rather than male?
2) Could I have inherited this type of thinning from my mom?
3) Would the standard therapies out there help with this type of thinning? (propecia, minox, keto, HT)
