Baldness is not just a man's problem. As women age they, too, can have thinning hair. But unlike men who have receding hairlines, women's hair usually thins on the top and sides of the scalp, says the Medical College of Wisconsin.
After menopause, the ovaries may produce more male than female hormones, which can lead to hair loss. Other causes include some medications, severe stress, malnutrition, and iron deficiency.
