In brief: Depends

Unlikely an estrogen/testosterone issue if your peroid is normal.
Other causes of hair loss include malnutrition, irone deficiency or thyroid problem. You could have these check to see if they are abnormal. Ask your doctor for a blood test. Good luck.

In brief: Hormone vs nutrition

It could be a hormonal issue, even if your blood tests are normal.
If you also have symptoms such as fatigue, sluggish bowel function, allergies, insomnia, headaches, brain fog, joint pain, and/or pms symptoms, you likely have a functional problem with your thyroid. Another common cause of hair thinning is iron deficiency. You can have your level checked by your physician.
