    I am 58 year old woman and I have suffered hair loss over the past 15 years and my hair is so thin you can see my scalp.
    My doctor has tested me for everything imaginable and all my tests came back negative. It all started with menopause. My question "Is there anything I can put on my scalp to stimulate hair growth besides rogaine. I understand that once you use rogaine that if you stop your new growth will fall out and it can cause the rest of your hair to fall out. I called their hotline and I was told this. Isn't there anything else? I have checked into hair transplants but I cannot afford $25000.00. Also why hasn't the drug propecia been tested on women?
    Please Help me!!!!
