Other meds? Birth control? Menstrual history? Pregnancies? Weight change? When you see a dermatologist be prepared to detail these items. You might be helped by spironolactone or dutasteride. ...Read more

Generally no: Transgender (male to female) patients on long term estrogen therapy, especially when started while in youth, may experience less male-pattern baldness than they would have otherwise. But generally no, it is not an accepted or effective therapy for male pattern hair loss. Adverse effects also greatly limit use. Minoxidil (Rogain) when used as directed works quite well. ...Read more
After giving birth I am losing a lot of hair. What can I do to reduce hair loss and increase hair growth?
I am suffering from hair loss for the past two years. My volume has considerably reduced. Nd I have dandruff. I smoke daily and masturbate too.

Unfortunately, masturbation doesn't grow hair on your head or your palms. Dandruff, however, can be cured by use of good dandruff shampoos like tegrin, selsun blue, or others. Use rogaine (minoxidil) for hair loss--now available without rx. ...Read more
