Does HRT help hair loss?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help with hair loss in some cases. Hair loss can be caused by hormonal imbalances related to conditions like perimenopause, menopause, and andropause.
Perimenopause is the transition period leading up to menopause when estrogen levels start to fluctuate and decline. These hormone shifts can trigger a type of hair loss called female pattern hair loss (FPHL), which causes the hair to thin out rather than fall out in clumps. Many women notice thinning hair during perimenopause.

Menopause marks the end of menstruation and fertility. The decline in estrogen during and after menopause can accelerate FPHL. Estrogen helps keep hair follicles healthy and growing. With less estrogen, more hair follicles shrink, which makes hair thinner and more prone to shedding.

Andropause is sometimes called "male menopause," but it's really just age-related testosterone decline in men. Lower testosterone can contribute to male pattern baldness.

Other considerations regarding HRT for hair loss:

So in summary - yes, the right type of HRT customized to your hormone profile can help substantially regrow hair lost due to changes in estrogen, testosterone, or other hormones. Experts like the physicians at Equilibrium Hormone Institute use bioidentical hormones, pellet therapy, and precision balancing methods to promote hair regrowth while also optimizing health, vitality and anti-aging effects.
