Thanks for the query.
I am sorry you had such a great loss.
With your history I can surely tell you that this hair loss is due to all the stress in your life.
Stress is one of the most important causes of hair fall, what we call as stress induced chronic telogen effluvium in our medical terms. Don’t worry you can regain back hair, as you are quiet young and don’t even have a history of baldness in your family.
Here is my advice for you.
1. Apply minoxidil oil 5 % twice daily.
2. Take tablet androanagen. This is a combination of multi vitamins.
Try this treatment for at least three months. You will find improvement.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Wishing you a good health.
Thank you

Dont worry, the doctor has prescribed a good combination.
You can use minoxidil as well as renocia without any hesitation.
This wont cause any further hair fall.
To assure you even I use minoxidil daily.
Only problem with minoxidil is that it takes atleast 3 months to show its effect and you have to continue it for a very long time.
Thank you
