Female pattern hair loss, also called andro genetic alopecia is hair loss that affects women. It's similar to male pattern baldness, except that women can lose their hair in a different pattern than men. Hair loss in women is normal, especially as you age. Up to two thirds of women experience hair loss after menopause. FPHL can be seen at any age even in teen age girls.

Satisfactory management of this condition requires a knowledge of possible underlying causes, physical comorbidities, possible differential diagnosis, and the various therapeutic modalities available. The condition is progressive without treatment. Regardless of which medication is utilized, response is slow, and requires patience and persistence in both patient and clinician. Female pattern hair loss is chronic progressive condition. All treatment need to be continued to maintain the effect. An initial therapeutic response often takes 12 or even 24 months.

Please contact earliest for good therapeutic results as late start of treatment may result in poor cosmetic response.
