My hair is falling out rapidly since starting to use Estrace. It was thinning before but loss is very heavy now!
Hi, hair loss is listed as known side effect when taking Estradiol. There are other treatments for HRT, including Tibolone (similar to HRT), Clonidine, and Antidepressants. Maybe you could discuss some of these options with your doctor, so you can come off the Estradiol. There is little that can be done to prevent hair loss while you are on this medication.
