Keep trying Rx: Keep working with your MD to find the right type of estrogen replacement (ERT)for you and your body. ERT comes in many "flavors" from pills to vaginal products and implants. It might be up to 6 months for your hair loss to stop once you are on the right dosages of estrogen. Have your MD also check your thyroid gland function as well as low thyroid will also cause your symptoms.
