Androgenetic alopecia is another term for female pattern baldness. It is very common in men but extremely rare in women. Alopecia is more likely to happen as a person ages but can start at any point after puberty. Many females who experience androgenetic alopecia can be temporary or triggered after going through menopause. This means that hormones may have something to do with it.
Menopause is a very common cause for hair loss in women. Not to be confused with female pattern baldness. Hair Loss Heroes is very successful in treating hair loss for menopausal women.
