I am a 48 year old healthy female. My hair thinning started when a new GYN doctor changed my BC. I didn't know at the time that the new BC had a high androgen effect. I suffered bad hair loss 3 months after I was told to stop taking it.
Another GYN doctor suggested I start taking a low androgen BC. Consulted with a bioidentical specialist that prescribed progesterone - 40 mg once a day on days 1-14 and 40 mg twice a day on days 15-28. I am wondering if that is enough? Bioidentical specialist also suggested that I stop taking BC, but could that trigger more hair loss? I have been on progesterone for 7 days. I feel nauseated somewhat after applying it and it seems that I am more tired. I eat very good, exercise, and get enough sleep. I do not get sick either. Any advice on hair loss and regrowing hair?
