    Also, do you know what the naturopath has done to help the women w/hair loss? Who did you see if you don't mind my asking?

    Hi Autumn,

    I guess all we can do is follow our instincts and if you trust your doctor then do what he recommends. Everyone’s hair loss is different and there are different treatments as well. I think spiro works for lots of women but for me it increased my hair loss and never stopped the loss on it's own. Only when I added bcp's did the loss stop. So I concluded that the spiro was unnecessary because bcp's will increase estrogen and helps lower testosterone. Some women, maybe you included, do need an anti-androgens. The naturopath never went into detail about the treatment plan for balancing my hormones because he needed me off all hormones for at least a month so that he could check my levels through a salvia test which he said was the only accurate way to measure hormones. Anyway he did mention it was all natural. I live in Canada but if you seek out a naturopath that focuses on hormone replacement and balance you hopefully will find someone who can help you. Maybe the bcp's and spiro will help too if you decide to go that route. The nizoral 2% shampoo daily really works well to.

    Natural Approach

    Raggtown,

    I also live in Canada and have been going to a TCM doctor (traditional chinese medicine) because I won't use chemicals or any product that poses a health risk. I have had great success and have quite a bit of regrowth to date. At christmas I have pictures where my scalp is shining and now when I look at pictures I can see a big difference. I can no longer see my scalp and my part has returned to a normal size. My hair is healthier and fuller than it has been in years. I highly recommend seeking out a doctor who specializes in natural medicines, I only wish I had gone sooner!

    Diane 35

    Hi everyone! This is my first post on the forum, although I've been reading it for quite some time. I have been loosing my hair for just over 12 months (it seems like longer than that though). I have been diagnosed by a dermatologist as having Andogenetic Alopecia that was triggered by Telogen Effluvium. Just last week I started taking the BCP Diane 35 as a treatment. However, I have since noticed increased shedding. Just wondering if anyone could share their experiences with Diane 35. I'm wondering if this increased shedding is normal.
