    Ive had androgenetic alopecia for 7 or 8 years now, I am looking for some friends who have the same alopecia as me. Please could you get in touch with me ?

    Hi 23311.  I have the same diagnosis but I have had it since I was 16 years old.  So I have been dealing with it for a while.  I'd be glad to be a support!

    hi all. People still here and checking in? I'm new to the site and hoping to share stories and learn what I can. I have FPB and have been completely freaking out for the last year or so. Now I'm more about acceptance and trying to get excited about my options. 

    I decided against meds, including rogain. I just wasn't crazy about the chemicals, and wasn't impressed with the results I was reading about. I do have a laser cap (I figured it probably can't hurt, but I also don't think it has helped.) And i am on bioidentical hormone replacement. Kind of controversial area but my doctor suggested it, and after researching it, I decided to do it.

    I'm curious about your experience with Toppik. I bought some a few months ago, tried it, was underwhelmed and tossed it. But I keep reading that others have luck with it. Was I applying it wrong? Is there a secret I don't know about?

    I read Katie's post about DermMatch. Katie if you're still out here - how are you, and do you still use it? Is it different than Toppik?

    Sorry, kind of rambling a lot. I'm just happy to have found this place and hoping to learn a thing or two.
