Women with thinning hair?

11 years ago

I have noticed the past 3-4 yrs the hair at my left temple area keeps getting thinner. I changed parts, thinking it was getting over done with the blow dryer, etc. But after a couple of years, and being gentle with that particular "spot" it is just thinner. I am 51, started taking vitamins for hair a few months ago, have good health otherwise, but I am really feeling sad at the thought I will be one of those women with thin hair! No one else in the family has thin hair, as far as the women.
Has this happened to anyone else? Any suggestions? I can request a thyroid test from my dr, but I don't have any other symptoms. I'm thinking hormones are to blame, although I've not "gone through the change" quite yet.
