70 year old happily married retired secretary

I've sent in my story already and so far, none of the contacts have my problem.

Will progesterone cream help me to stop losing my hair? My husband said even my Mom had thinning hair when she was my age. I've been looking at a lot of heads lately and, yah, a lot of women my age are losing their hair. Maybe I'm over-reacting. Maybe I'll just live with it and keep changing my bangs or hair style.

I'm a cancer survivor of one year, so far. No HRT's. No chemo, just radiation treatments. Just old age creeping up on me.

Hi Sandy. Progesterone can help hair loss, if it's hormonally related or due to stress. Progesterone activates the GABA receptor sites, GABA is one of our most calming neurotransmitters so helps with stress. You could also try inositol, the anti-alopecia vitamin, about 2000mg/day. Plus 2000mg/day of N-acetyl cysteine, about 14% of hair, skin and nails comprise cysteine. Supplementing with it usually makes all three strong and healthy. Another B vitamin biotin prevents dry, brittle hair, about 1-3mg/day is needed. Take care, Wray
