    Yes women can and are affected by baldness. Baldness is actually controlled by a gene that is passed down through the mothers side of the family.

    You must be  a little stressed if you think this is happening to you.  Women can go bald.  A heriditary gene does give you the predisposition for it but does not determine whether you do or not. 

    I am not in the medical profession - research/write articles about health topics.

    I recall coming across some information - not sure where that stated that a correct diagnosis of why is extremely important.

    It can have to do with an excess of testosterone so if you have more body hair than you think is normal that could be the problem. 

    Sometimes hormonal problems can be caused from cysts on the ovaries which alters the correct production of hormones.

    It can also involve the thyroid, auto immune system, anemia and so on.

    It would be advisable to have it checked out and the potential cause investigated. 

    We are not in the dark ages any more.  Do not accept this as something that you can do nothing about. 

    Hey, we need our hair - fight to keep it.  Good luck

    Yes woman can be affected by baldness. If you observe very well you ll see some women with low hear cut and you will be wondering why.

    They maintain low cut because they re experiencing frequent loss of hair.

    Many women can also be effected with an autoimmune disease called Alopecia areata (wiki it) which causes baldness. In fact htis illness which is pretty common can cause you to lose all the hair on your body.
