Hair loss - hormonal imbalances Postoval

Hi Gynae doc

I am 26 years old have a regular menstrual cycle that lasts for about 5-6 days each month. For the past two months I have been experiencing severe hair loss (scalp). So on 15/5/08 I went to my gp who did blood tests. The results of my blood tests are as follows:
Totale testosteroon: 1.09
SHBG: 147.0
Vry androgeen indeks: 0.7
DHEAS: 2.59 L
Hemoglobien: 13.3
Ferritien: 10
Vry T4: 11.8
S-TSH: 1.26

FSH: 7.3 IU/L
LH: 6.3 IU/L
17B Oestradiol (E2): 343pmol/L

My gp prescribed Postoval a HRT coz she says my hormones are a little out of sync. She also said my testosterone levels are high. I am currently not on any birth control pills.

Please explain my results above to me? Does this mean I have cysts? Will Postoval help normalise my hormone levels? Will my hair loss stop then? Also, will starting a birth control pill like Nordette or Yasmin not also help to normalise my hormone levels?

Sorry for all the questions I just want to understand what this all means.

I would suggest that you see a gynaecologist. You may have PCOS. If this is the case, Diane 35 would be the best Pill to use.
