    Awwh Thank Youu! & I will I've honestly never felt more ugly in my life.
    Feel 10x more uglier than I already am.
    I know exactly how you feel. My floor was covered with my hair and, i was terrified of combing my hair or taking a bath. I get it.

    My hair started thinning out and lost pigmentation. People around me started commenting on my hair turning chestnut brown, and a few grey hairs grew too.

    Take care of yourself and I hope it's just a temporary phase.

    I cried so much when my mum brushed my hair, she slapped me and said that it was my fault that my hair became f****ked up. I wear a beanie everywhere I go & I avoid going out as much. I hope too. Thank you for the support, your such a lovely person honestly.

    Omg, that's so sad :-(

    Did you tell her that you eat properly and take care of yourself, and you just can't help it?

    Thank you, it just really saddens me. I'm 16, and, to think I was in the same position when I was 15, I just really want to help.

    Yes, but she never listens to me. She just acts like my enemy. She laughs at me and calls me baldy. I told her that just because it's my hair doesn't mean it's my fault, and she just told me to shut up.
    Anytime. & Your just an amazing person, with an excellent personality, I can't thank you enough. x

    Thank you very much but like I can't help it, I'm literally bold at the front of my scalp it looks ugly as hell. I ain't got 1/4 of all the hair I had before. It's so horrible.
    I know you can't help feeling insecure and it's absolutely okay to feel like that. You do not look ugly because of that; I'm sure of it.
    Definitely go see your doctor, it could be more than an iron deficiency - a medical practitioner will be best to advise. If she doesn't know anything more, ask to see a different doctor or ask for transfer to a specialist at the hospital.
    Best wishes

    Thank You! I will keep updating everyone who took part in this forum and I my dad said he would sort the doctor out and tell him to review it, and refer me to a dermatologist. I am quite certain that it is a bit more than an iron deficiency. But Thank you very much for all the kindness and support.

    I mean, I could've been any of the 12 zodiacs, and each zodiac has 30 days, so the odds of being one day close to yours, or on yours, is literally 1/120

    Okay, i'm sure that maths is wrong, but, you get the gist :-P

    Basically I'm a girl, age 15, and I starting losing a LOT of hair, and I went to doc and he sent me for a blood test and it came back saying I have Iron Deficiency right. & I've been having my tabs 2 a day for about 4 months, and the doc said he would review em after 3, but anyway my hair loss is worse, when I let my hair out, I have about 2-3 handfuls of hair on my elastic. What should I do? Help please.
    Does anyone know how long iron Medicine takes too see the effects?, eg less tiredness and hair loss
