Reasons for hair loss scalp and pubic

I am 19 years old my hair has been falling so much that its quarter of what it used to be and recently I have noticed my pubic hair is falling at the same rate. What could be the reason? Hair fall is embarrassing. My menstruations are normal is it still something to worry about?

Are you a vegetarian? If you are, you're not eating enough protein. If not, eat more meat. The reason for this is not getting enough protein and calcium, so eat meat but if youte vegetarian eat peanut butter or somethinf. Also drink more milk and eat yogurt

Just as male pattern baldness can affect men your age & younger, so can female pattern baldness affect us ladies that young, too. It could also be alopecia, or any number of other things. Find a good dermatologist. They can do a scalp biopsy & truly determine what's going on, & what you might be able to do about it.

Mostly genetics. I also know someone who is 18 and losing hair. If you are a guy, then a beard is all you need.

Hair loss includes in it a large number of different disorders. Some that may involve hair loss in both scalp and genital areas include alopecia areata and lichen planus. Some medications can do that as well, but much less commonly. There are some internal conditions and disorders that can cause the hair loss in both areas, like anemia (common in young women), thyroid or other hormonal conditions and other diseases.

Androgenetic alopecia (or female pattern baldness) usually does not affect the pubic area although hair does get thinner in that area after menopause. If you have normal periods, the chances that you have a hormonal abnormality are lower.

You need an evaluation by a dermatologist to determine the cause of your hair loss.

Hi there,

It?s simply shocking for anyone to start losing their hair at early age. Well there are many reasons for hair loss, diet lacking in nutrition, fungus, dandruff, stress, extreme use of tight accessories, hereditary, skin disorder etc. I think the best treatment to get rid of this problem is hair transplant.

I recently underwent for Dr. Cole non shaven CIT treatment - http://www.forhair.com/hair-transplant-videos/ - What made this procedure unique was that over 3,500 grafts were transplanted by follicular unit transaction technique. However you can try some different options and see what works best for you. But the sooner you seek care, the better chances of successful treating it.
