Female Hair Loss After Hysterectomy

I am 54 years old and had a total hysterectomy 1.5 years ago. I started HRT right away (premarin), but it gave me migraines. Three months ago my Dr ran blood work and started me on HRT natural cream, by prescription, which contains triest, testosterone and progesterone. I noticed within the last 2 months that my hair has gone from VERY thick to very thin. Now I am noticing that the top front of my head is looking even thinner, perhaps balding. I also take 1 mg of Adavant daily since my hysterectomy, and 300 mg of neurontin for night
sweats/heat flashes. Can any of this be causing my hair loss?

Many of the things you mention, including the surgery and the medications, can be the cause of your hair loss. You need to meet in-person with an expert on the subject to (1) stop what is happening to you, and (2) try to reverse it.

  1. I had a total hysterectomy 5 years ago. I immediately started HRT. I take Premarin and a testosterone cream. My beautiful thick hair is disappearing. It won’t stop thinning. What can I do?

  2. I had a total hysterectomy 10 years ago. Before my hysterectomy I had “too much” hair….now, it is so thin you can see through it and it will NOT grow. I have never taken HRT….. I’m wondering if I should….
