I am a 22 year old woman. When I am stressed I tend to loose more hair than normal. Over the last couple of months I have noticed that my hair loss is getting worse. My stress level has gone down. Genetically, hair loss is rare in my family so I am looking for any possible medical conditions that could be making this problem worse. I am not on any medication and as far as I know my hormone levels are normal. I have not noticed any other symptoms, but maybe I am missing something? Any ideas? Should I go to a doctor?Medical reasons for hair loss in young women?

f you see your hair thinning by the back and front of the scalp, it may suggest that you have Androgenetic Alopecia. Also, when the entire scalp seems to be thinning, well it is an obvious sign of the Androgenetic Alopecia.Though it has been discussed that female pattern starts at 50, it may also be that it starts on the late teen years to the early 20s of women. That is why you have to see a specialist to diagnose the thinning.
There are also a few causes of hair loss in women that is not associated with the hair loss pattern. These include Trichotillomania, which is caused by hair pulling. Alopecia areata which may be a disorder that autoimmune. Triangular alopecia which is only a temporary loss. Scarring Alopecia, which involves the scarring of the area of the scalp. And lastly, Telogen effluvium, which is a hormonal or drug/stress associated cause.
Hi I came across this website that talks hair loss: www.asknursesheila.com
You say your hormones are fine, as far as you know, but have you gotten them checked recently? It could be that.. mine started falling out due to hormones and PCOS. Could be something related.. Good luck! :o)
