I agree 100%!!!! I have noticed the same things. Because we are women maybe we are not taken as seriously. Example—I take my husband to the doctor with a bad upper respiratory infection and he is given a thorough exam and gets an antibiotic injection and prescriptions. I go to the doctor with the same symptoms a week later and he barely examines me, calls it a virus gives me an Rx for cough syrup.
My hair is shedding so much that my husband says that it is clogging the drains. I have mentioned it to a previous doctor but I guess it did not seem pertinent to him. I bet if my husband went to the same doctor with hair loss he would get a ton of free samples of Rogaine. Ha!!!
