Hair loss after Hysterectomy?

Hello, I had a total hysterectomy 3 years ago. Since then I have experienced hair loss on the top of my head. I had lots of thick hair prior to surgery but now, it is very thin on top. I tried HRT and even had a compounding pharmacist make me a creme but non have helped. Has anyone else had problems like this? I am currently not using any HRT at all.

Thanks in advance!

Hair loss after Hysterectomy?

I had been taking some bio-estrogen-testosterone cream and my hair was ok..then, When I stopped the testosterone....a month after, started losing my hair in huge clumps. Im guessing its due to low hormones. I would have your doc check all your hormones, including thyroid. I think hormone balance is the only thing that is going to fix it. I might have to get back on my testosterone again, even though i didnt feel good on it...

They say that Rogaine helps regrow hair for women as well as men.

All my docs recommend starting with a low dose of DHEA also....
You might want to look into that
