postmenapausal nightmare

I am 67 yrs and started Bio-T pellet therapy about a year ago. Hair loss has been getting worse and hair growth on face and chest has increased. I shave my face every morning and chest not as often. I see PCP this morning and will inform him I will no longer do the pellet therapy.

I have read that taking Saw Palmetto extract that contains 85 to 95% fatty acids & sterols may help regrow hair. Has anyone tried it yet? The drug Spironolactone carries a cancer warning, so that's out on my list.
Should I start looking for wigs?

Hi Mary Lynn

I am happy to hear that you will no longer be using pellets, the side effects have caused some women great anguish and terrible side effects. Please read this post and take note of Wray's comments, see here. You might like to consider using a good organic progesterone cream such as Natpro which is a 3% cream. Should you decide to use progesterone please read the How to use Progesterone Cream and Estrogen Dominance pages. Peri-Menopause and Menopause can be a terrible time for women.

Pellets can cause Hair Loss but you might also like to test your testosterone and thyroid levels, both can cause hair loss as well.

Should you decided to try progesterone, please make sure that your vitamin D3 level is correct. Vitamin D3 is very important, a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone. Nothing less than 5,000iu's per day is needed. Optimal range is between 70-100ng/ml. Magnesium and vitamin K2 with no soy are important co-factors needed when taking vitamin D3. See The Vitamin D Council.
