    Default Thinning hair, afraid to try rogaine

    Hello... I'm a 52 y.o. woman who spent all of the last two summers in a pool texting swim lessons and coaching swimming. I thought my hair was just destroyed by pool chemicals but I've been a swimmer my whole life and never had what I've gone thru this last summer before. Hair is falling out, party at the back of my crown is noticeable wider and longer. Hair all over is very thin, wear it in a knot at my nape daily and even that is not staying in anymore. My hair gathers into a ponytail about the width of my pinky. T he difference is shocking between now and two years ago. I have tons of questions.... Did blood work, no thyroid issues, all checks out. I am in menopause officially. My questions are:. Will my hair grow back? Is it possible my brown hair falling out and grey hair will replace it? I do have more grey, it's not all long either. Varying lengths. If I use rogaine for men foam will I DEFINITELY get facial hair? And this initial shedding stage after beginning use scares the hell out of me. I can't wear a hat and that's where I'll be if any more falls out. This is depressing me along with menopause weight gain if about fifteen pounds on to of it all. Also going thru much stress but been thru very stressful times before and this has never happened before. Any personal accounts would be very helpful and appreciated, thank you....
