About Me:
I was just diagnosed with Alopecia areta in July of 2009 and lost all my hair by August 2009. Western doctors have not been much help and made me feel helpless and hopeless. I turned to Chinese medicine and accupunture. My hair is starting to grow back in patches just like it feel off in patches. However, I'm still so new to Alopecia that it's hard to say if it is really working. I am happily married with two wonderful children. I'm starting to see hope now, with the help of chinese medicine. I would like to eventually get to a point where I would be comfortable in public being bald even though it doesn't bother me to wear a wig. I feel very lucky that of all things I had to have, it would only be cosmetic. At least I didn't lose and arm or my sight, hearing, etc. At this point, the upside is that I never have to worry about a bad hair day with my new wig :)

Wanting a child but just diagnosed with AA, is it hereditary?

Posted on November 14, 2009 at 9:19am 19 Comments

Hi Everyone, my husband and I were hoping to have another child but I was just diagnosed with Alopecia in July 2009. Does anyone by any chance know if having Alopecia effect the baby? I've heard some talk that it might be hereditary. Any of you out there with Alopecia have children and did your child have Alopecia, if so at what age? Any information or input would be super helpful. Even to tell me that you have Alopecia and your children do not have AA would even be better :)



Thanks… Continue

Hello....

Always, always use a conditioner made especially for human hair or synthetic wigs after shampooing them. Conditioner really does prolong the wig's life. And it's always good to have at least 2-3 (or more, if you can afford to do it) of the same style wigs so that you can wear them "in rotation." They'll last a lot longer and look a lot better this way.

Peace.

Hi! In response to your survey about whether parents had alopecia or not, neither of my parents (nor anyone in my extended family) has had alopecia; I am the first.

i have tried everything, including chinese herbs.Yet only got a little back in all the wrong places.Thin on top, pigmented, sparse, & a coarse fluffy frumpy mess.
I had long hair when it fell out & then I had alopecia totalis.
Now I have alopecia areata, however shave & go totally B-A-L-D!

I am so so so sorry. Are you okay? I would be up for meeting for tea if you want. I keep hearing that losing the eyebrows and eyelashes is the hardest part. I'm not sure if I will reach that point, but I am trying to not overwhelm myself with future conjectures. Like you said, take it day by day. Having said that, I recently came across a members page that had a lot of good beauty tips as well as a website. The address is alopeciabeautytips.com. It made me feel like there are solutions to the challenges alopecia presents to us all. I also heard that you can swim with vacuum wigs. : } Keep me posted and stay in touch.

I love your outlook, you're so positive. That's great! And I agree about not having bad hair days. :)

Hi there! I see you've gotten fairly active on the site...great!!! I saw a recent post of yours that said your hair loss has gotten worse. I'm sorry about that, but do hope you're managing/coping well. All the best.

I think I am finally reaching that stage of not wanting to focus on my hair loss. I think initially I was in denial because accepting a disease that I have no control over felt really overwhelming. Ironically once I did accept the fact that this disease will run its course despite my decisions I felt calm. I agree it is still a process...one that I need to be patient with.
