Hi everyone! I have been diagnosed with PCOS and I am experiencing thinning hair as a symptom. I am so depressed over this. I don't feel like doing anything, going anywhere or even purchasing makeup :p. Maybe I shouldn't be obsessing like I am, but it's really getting to me. It has completely made my whole attitude change. PCOS causes male pattern baldness because of the extra testosterone, I believe. So, my hair is thinning right on top of my head! and it is noticeable. It's getting worse and continuing to fall out. I feel like crying.
I have visited my Dr. over and over again but she doesn't seem concerned about it and will not prescribe me anything or any hormonal medication. I even visited a dermatologist who said she didn't get my blood work results back and her words were "you probably don't have anything anyways. Get a good wig". Urg!! I just wish I was able to get myself help without having to rely on someone else. From doing research I have found that there are anti androgens available to lower the extra hormones, but again my Dr. ignored me when I told it to her!!
Has anyone experienced this and able to grow their hair back? Do you have any advice on how to lower testosterone without medications?
I am taking biotin, mult vitamens, drinkings lots of water, and even using natural biotin shampoo!
Any help is appreciated. I feel at a loss right now. Thank you. Phew, sorry for the lengthy post.
