Why else would you be suffering from hair loss?

It is very important to rule out all of the other possibilities. You might be undergoing hair loss due to various other reasons, other than the onset of menopause. It might be a hormonal imbalance or even an effect of a thyroid. If you have recently stopped having birth control pills, then that might be a reason too. We help you analyze the root cause of the problem and then offer an array of solutions and stand by you through the entire procedure. We understand that menopause comes with a lot of emotional roller coaster rides and hair loss is a department you can completely leave up to us.
