Progesterone Made My hair loss WORSE.
I started shedding more than your average 100 hairs a day when I was about 48 (peri-menopause) I went to an endocrin. Dr. He put me on bio identical hormones. You take progesterone and estradiol on a schedule that produces bleeding once a month. I take the progesterone for the first 11 days of the month. It did not take me long to notice that the progesterone was causing my hair to fall out even more.
Yet, all the articles I read say that progesterone helps stop hair loss. I know that, for me, that is just not so. Women need to made aware of the side affect for some people in taking progesterone.
I still have not found an answer to my problem. But, I am sure it is a multi condition problem. I have low thyroid and low iron. I take medication for the thyroid, but there is little I can do for the iron. I have what is called microcytosis which means the blood carriers are smaller than normal.
After trying to stop my hair from falling out for the last 12 years, I have come to believe that it is not possible.
