Thinning hair

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hello everyone, have any of you noticed your hair getting a lot thinner ? I'm scared im going bald as I can see my scalp it's making me paranoid. Thyroid checks fine so is this going to carry on until I go completley bald or will it calm down and stop thinning when all this is over ? I take B12 slow release, vit c, e, evening primrose and magnesium and have a good diet so must be lack of hormones. Three years into surgical meno and worrying so much it's making me feel ill. Any remedies or advice please, thanks ??x

    I am losing mine too. I started using Ro gained. Seemed to help some, but it's still growing back very slowly. Maybe add Biotin supplements to your vitamin regime too. Anyway, you are not alone in this one. My part line looks like a carved out light bulb. Teehee... not that funny... Trust me I feel you on this one Lou.

    Hi Lou,

    Yes, but I now take a lovely supplement called Biotin.  It comes in 5000, 7500, which is the one I take, and 10000 mcg.  It works wonders for the hair and nails!  I would say it takes a good 3-6 months.  But I noticed a big difference right away.  I started seeing baby hairs growing in within the first 3 months, and my hairdresser could tell my hair started feeling healthier by then too. 

    Good Luck!  smile

      Hi deidra thank you so much for the info I will DEFINATLEY get some - the ammount you take seems to be what most people recommend to see results, it's great news that you have new hair coming through and healthier aswell. How are you feel in yourself, do you feel better generally in yourself from taking the biotin ? X

    Biotin and rogaine work. My mom was going bald and she put on Rogaine and took biotin and her hair came all came back almost immediately. Took about 6 months to fully recover from the baldness.

      I lost weight last year nearly 20 lbs. It was scary, and my digestion was a mess for nearly 4 mos. Thought I had ingested some bad bacterialink virus. Had bad digestion issues too. Had all these tests done. Nothing came back abnormal.

      You'll gain the weight back. It took about 9 mos. for me. Now I gained too much back, and now can't keep it off. I blame all weight issues up or down on peri. My gyno.. tried to tell me losing weight was not a symptom. Boy was she wrong. Im convinced doctors don't understand all the symptoms involving peri. menopause. It's so much more than hot flashes, night sweats, sleep issues and irritability.

      Lots of bouts of anxiety, muscle aches, dizziness, headaches, weight issues, indigestion, depression. So so many more things....

      Hang in there

      Hi didi, I had loss 20 lbs too, half of it has come back but i'm working on reducing it again. But I'm constantly feeling hungry at night. I'm trying hard not eat but it's hard sometimes. My doctor knew that everything I was going through was a symptom of peri/meno, so not all doctors don't understand. I have a basic rule, if the pain gets worse and doesn't go away after one week, then I go see the doctor. Otherwise, I chalk it up to being part of the process.
