Hey, Have you visited a dermatologist yet? You should. We need to figure out what sort of baldness (assuming it's baldness in the first place) it is. Under conditions of duress the hair is the amongst the first to get affected. But depending on the pathology behind the hair fall you could get back the hair. A proper physical examination of your hair and scalp is needed.

Take the medicinea properly. Keep thyroid problem under control. The problem could have triggered female balding. You will require treatments to regain back the lost thickness. Take care. Stay healthy. Regards, Dr. Jolly Shah DNB Dermatology, Mumbai.
