Dying Female Guppies?

I have a problem with my female guppies. It seems to me like dropsy, but it's only my female guppies being affected. Specifically after they drop fry, the female begins hiding and she gets extremely skinny, she clamps her fins, and the scales on her stomach are raised. I treat them for parasites, and about a month later, they die. This has happened with only my female guppies. It isn't always after they drop, either. Suddenly they're ill and there's nothing I can do to save them. Any ideas as to what this mysterious disease is? Thanks for the help.

I'll try to post a picture of one that's currently got the symptoms.
