Patient :I am a 25 year old female with androgen alopecia, and I was thinking of some kind of hair transplant. My question - with my condition, will the transplant do any good? How long will the hair stay for? I've already seen my dermatologist, who suggested birth control or spironolactone, but I want to avoid taking long term medication. Also, in case it matters, I do get my period regularly, and I do not have any cysts growing.
