You’ve likely seen the ads for Propecia, a medication prescribed to treat male pattern hair loss.

Females are warned that they shouldn’t even touch the pills and should avoid the whole Propecia experience. Here’s why Propecia and women don’t mix, according to the FDA.

Propecia and Women Hair Loss
Propecia prevents testosterone from converting to DHT, an alternative form of testosterone found in hair follicles. According to research conducted by Merck, the company that makes Propecia, DHT blocks hair growth. Propecia treats hair loss by stopping DHT from forming and, thus, helping hair follicles produce hair. However, animal testing revealed that Propecia causes birth defects in male fetuses because these little guys need DHT to develop their sexual organs in the womb. So, male hair loss can be treated with Propecia and women hair loss cannot.The Propecia estrogen effect is not healthy.
Propecia and Postmenopausal Women
The primary concern about Propecia and women is that a female might be exposed to the drug without knowing they are pregnant. But what about Propecia and postmenopausal women? Although unlikely to be unknowingly pregnant, the FDA still hasn’t given its nod of approval for any usage by women of any age.
The man in your life might have better luck with this medication, however. Drugs.com reports that medical studies conducted on adult males with mild to moderate degrees of male pattern baldness discovered that this medication can help slow down hair loss as quickly as 3 months. Males typically experience an increase in hair count as well as hair regrowth.
