I am 29 years old, was diagnosed at 13 and spent 13 years bouncing around various attempts at treatment (a couple of different pills, metformin, an anti-testosterone, holistic etc) but nothing ever really put a dent in anything.
For the last three years I've been off any kind of medication and PCOS kind of took a back seat to the time and energy that I've put into my career. However ...
About a month ago I looked at the back of my head (I was styling my hair) and realised that I am basically bald on the back of my head. My hair has been thinning for a number of years but I have no hair at all across my crown and it is thinning along my parting. I am mixed race - I have quite fine very curly, almost afro-Caribbean hair so the fineness doesn't help but I am devastated. I know this is largely my own fault for trying to focus on something that isn't the PCOS but ... yeah.
So, I've tried the "Just Naturals" hair loss topical cream but I don't want to continue to waste money on topcial things then I know the issue is hormonal. I've switched to all natural hair treatments, though, to prevent further stress on the hair.
Really, what I'm wondering is - has anyone else experienced such dramatic loss and, if so, did any of it ever grow back?
Thank you x
