    Do you have any bald family members? It could be genetic although it is very rare. Realistically you need to see a doctor or dermatologist. They will provide you with the best answer and treatment if necessary.

    Have you consulted with a dermatologist or trichologist yet? I strongly urge you to. They would run tests to get to the cause of your hair loss and potentially offer treatments.

    Before trying any hair loss product. I strongly recommend that you must visit the dermatologist. He can suggest you better and can tell you the actual reason.

    Also see an internist as many causes of hair loss in women are medical i.e. low iron, thyroid abnormalities, etc. Usually they can answer a lot of questions with blood tests and a good physical exam.

    I agree with the others that the most important thing you can do now is see a doctor for an evaluation and get their professional opinion. This is going to be the only way to get to the root of the problem. Women's hair loss can be a little trickier, as there can be hormonal factors at play, so you wanna make sure you know exactly what's causing the hair loss before you start trying different treatments.

    Have you had your thyroid levels checked? My wife was having problems with her hair thinning, and it was something to do with her thyroid.

    Hi Kobefan,

    Like many people in the thread have suggested, have you seen a dermatologist yet? While a lot of us have the auto-immune FPB, many times the hair loss is due to
    1. Thyroid problems
    2. Hormonal imbalance
    3. PCOS pretty much an after effect of the previous
    4. Iron or Zinc deficiency.

    I would recommend you get a thorough blood test following an appointment with a trichologist or dermatologist. They would recommend it anyway.
    If you have already done that can you please update us on your condition now?
    We are all in the same boat.
