Hi. My name is Bhanu. I'm 18years old and I have hypothyroidism and PCOD. I have irregular periods and extreme thinning of hair. I'm really worried about this. I want a suggestion for it. It is really scary to go to college with scanty hair on my scalp.

Stopping Hair Loss Is Difficult
by: PCOS Editor

We understand how distressing this problem is.

Hair regeneration is a very slow process. Once a hair follicle goes into a resting phase, it may not go back to a growing phase for several months -- or even much longer.

Scalp hair thinning is a very complex process, involving many factors. One factor is suboptimal thyroid function. With some people, a symptom of hypothyroidism is thinning of hair.

However, the most common cause is a condition called androgenic alopecia, or hair loss caused by excessively high levels of the male hormone testosterone. If you have PCOS, this is probably the type of alopecia you have.

We have written an e-book that tells you what hair loss is and what you can do about it. So if you want to understand your problem and what you can do about it, this e-book is a good resource for you.

Also, this webpage has quite a bit of information that may help you.
