Looks like a female to me mate, but to be 100% keep her next molt and have a look at it its the most accurate way.
Here is a lil guide on sexing from molts CLICK

nah she wont die, a bald abdomen is usually a sign of either stress or an upcoming molt.

The reason it goes bald if stressed is the whole hair flicking thing
And when its due to molt they arent really bald just appear to be bald because the abdomen
is alot bigger lol

Looks like you should be able to use that molt to sex yer T.

But if you want us to help you will need to unfold it a bit and get a closer shot. Very Happy

you need to unfold the abdomen where the book lungs are.

The epigastric furrow should be located between the first set of book lungs. This will have the appearance of a bit of tissue paper. This furrow varies in size and shape depending on the species of tarantula.

If the exuvium has dried out, give it a light misting of water, let it soak in a bit and very gently unfold it. Some fine tweezers or a sewing needle should help you tease the abdomen into viewing position.

then get another picture on here and we will have a nosey Smile
