In brief: Surgical Menopause

Your ovaries were your main source of male and female hormones.
They regulate hair and skin vitality; affect osteoporosis, muscle mass etc. Unless the ovaries were removed because of cancer, you likely need labs including tsh, free T3 (liothyronine) and 4 and reverse T3 (liothyronine) run at a reference lab and bio-identical hormones replaced to a youthful level. Supplements and good diet to optimize / maintain hair growth.

In brief: Lab test or meds

A thorough workup with your primary doctor or an endocrinologist may reveal a hormone deficiency which can be corrected.
If that does not help, you might consider a consultation with a hair transplant surgeon. There are some other medical therapies which might benefit you.

Hi lacey, endocrine hair loss is a complex issue and clearly the Progesterone is initimately involved.
I have a simple scalp stimulant which has helped my female patients with similar hair loss to recovery thickness and growth of the hair. If you would like to try a botle please call brittany at my office 925 240-9775.

In brief: Worry about heart!

While there are many issues to be address, women who have surgical or early menopause are at much higher risk for ASHD than those placed on hrt.
There have been many bogus conclusions reached by the flawed "women's health initiative trial, " but even data from that study suggests cardiac benfits in women started early, compared with no benefits in women starting after60. Many studies verify this!
