Hi all, I had two months of prostap injections and have since been stopped for two months... I'm having a serious amount of hair loss! I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? And If so any solutions please?
Hair loss following prostap: Hi all, I had... - Endometriosis UK
I don't know if it's of use, but hair loss can be a symptom of zinc deficiency so eating foods rich in it or taking a supplement might be worth considering in consultation with a Dr.
I've just been diagnosed with fibromyalgia & dr said the prostap might be making joint pain worse. But before I had prostap I was in awful pain low down in tummy & nightmare periods blood clots flooding etc it's took away all my pain since had injection had to start taking hrt cos of bones due to have 3 injection Friday my periods been lot better too hardly anything last month x
Hi mali23 im having the same problem now after zoladex. I would never have taken it if id known! Ive got severe depression too which is really bad at the mo. Its all lunked with body image so this hair thing is driving me mad. Hope things improve soon. We just go to hang in there. Let us all know how things are going x
Hi again Mali23
It sounds so vain of me but it is awful this hair thing. My depression is linked fo how i look and this is just freaking me out. I had bloods done at docs but im not sure what was tested. I saw my hairdresser and she said my scalp is really really hot. I said that to the doc but they just ignore you because you still have hair. My hairdresser said mine was prob a combination of imbalance but also stress and weightloss etc etc. Im scared because this has all happened over 2 months and if it keeps going i dont like to think!!
Keep me updated on how you are getting on x
Hi leese16, hope things are going okay for you. I've decided not to let this beat me, well that's the plan anyway. The more I seem to fixate on my hair loss the more I seem to shed so I now think it's me who's making it worse. The bald patches are greatly visible now so I've purchased some hair fibres which I recommend to you and I'll email to eat healthy and take vitamins and hope it all sorts itself out x
Ive been on Prostap for almost 3 months, had 2 injections so far and due my 3rd next week and my hair is falling out in clumps! Worse when I was it and now have a large bald patch!!! I have cried bucket loads of tears at each hair wash. I keep telling myself, its only hair and it will grow back!! Just feel I have lost another part of myself.
