Q: 

female hair loss and Rogaine

A: Hello Carrie: Sorry you"re going through all this. I know how I feels. I lost almost all of my hair during a 2 month period of time when I was 32 years old. I am not a fan of Rogaine. When I researched it I was not impressed. One of the main drawbacks for me was that once you stop using it the hair will fall out again. If Rogaine is going to work for you, it will take at least 2 months. Before hair falls out it moves from the growing phase into the resting phase. The hair stays in the resting phase for a few months before it falls out. So any hair you"re losing now was probably already in the resting phase. Although your iron levels were low there may be other
Q: 

sudden female hair loss

A: Having an answer that your iron is fine does not impress me as being within normal limits as I explained your serum ferritin needs to be over 70 . Find out what it is and let me know. I do not care what other iron tests or other blood work was done, just the serum ferritin. If it is over 70 then you do not have to worry about supplements. B12 will not help your hair but it will not hurt you either.  If you are going to change your OCP it should be to Yasmin and again it doesn"t matter that you took some other one years before without a problem -- your body has changed and you may need the Yasmin now. Rogaine will not cause your hair to fall our but if you are already depressed and...

Q: 

chronic female hair loss

A: A serum ferritin of 17 is not okay. Up intil 2001 it was assumed a serum ferritin of 10 to 230 was the normal range but since then there have been many studies proving levels below 70 can cause hair loss and in your case it can prevent regrowth of lost hair. This is easily confirmed by searching the internet. In my office I had out a reprint or a study done in 2001 which makes just this point. You should start off on an iron supplement of ferrous sulfate 325mg and Vit C 500 at least once a day for at least two months before repeating the test. It may take e months after getting your iron back to normal before seeing more hair. The use of 5% minoxidil once a day in the morning for the next 6 months will also help...
Q: 

best solution for female hair loss

A: Mt standard treatment for AGA (androgenetic alopecia) is to have the patient take Yasmin to stop the ovary from producing testosterone and spironolactone to block the DHT from getting to the androgen receptor site on the hairs.
