Hi Everyone, I am new to the forum, and I am so grateful that I found it. I have suffered with hair loss for the past four years, and it has been really difficult for me emotionally. I got diagnosed with premature menopause when I was in my 30's (I am 43 now) which I think contributed to my hair loss. I used to have thick hair and now I have a receeding hairline and hair loss in my temple area (also have diffuse thinning all over my head). I have been using Joan Rivers Great Hair Day make-up to try and hide my temple bald spots as well as my receeding hairline. I am just so self-conscious of my hair loss, and it makes it more difficult to deal with when there are some women at work who just stare at my hairline and temple area. I have tried Spironolactone, various vitamins and hair products. My dermatologist recommended I try Rogaine for Men (I had been using Rogaine for Women with limited results) which I have done for the past 2-3 mths. This week, I noticed that I had large amounts of unwanted facial and body hair growth which made me so depressed. It is really noticeable on my hands. I immediately stopped using the Rogaine for Men and went back to the Rogaine for Women. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know if this unwanted facial/body hair will go away? Thank you so very much for any information you can provide.
