Symptoms of female-pattern baldness

It is important to understand that female-pattern baldness is not a medical disorder. However, it might affect the self-esteem of the person and cause hesitation since the hair loss would be a permanent issue. There is no specific prevention for female-pattern baldness, but it is important to consult your primary medical advisor or dermatologist.

Female hair loss is one of the most common disorders which gets further aggravated with the advancement of age. The cause of female-pattern baldness cannot be specified as such, because there are varied factors that make a difference to the hair growth. When a person suffers from female-pattern baldness, the hair follicles shrink down over a period of time, which further results into shorter and thinner hair. The follicle is unable to regrow new hair which ultimately results into baldness.

Some of the most common symptoms of female-pattern baldness are:

•    Unexplained hair fall
•    Thinning of hair on the top or crown
•    Sudden loosening of hair strands
•    Shrinking of hair follicles
•    Reduction in the hairline basically on the front

For those who want to avoid female-pattern baldness, should get diagnosed from the time the symptoms get visible.

Female pattern baldness can be diagnosed based on:

•    The appearance and pattern of hair loss
•    Your medical history
•    Changes in menstrual periods and enlargement of the clitoris
