Post Natal Hair Loss
also known as "post-partum telogen effluvium"
For example, how would you feel, if you tried treating your post natal hair loss, only to find that your baby started growing hair where hair shouldn't be growing, or started growing a cancer?
On a more positive side, post natal hair loss and end of pregnancy are not normally going to lead to baldness and although post natal hair loss is common enough amongst women following child birth, it still does not affect the majority of women.
If the hair loss is uncomfortable for you in public, you can always try wearing a hat.
In case your wondering, yes you can have pregnancy hair loss, followed by post natal hair loss, but honestly, you are still likely to keep your scalp covered with hair pretty well.
How do pregnancy hormones cause female hair loss and baldness?
One way to conceptualize female hair loss, at least post natally, is that the pregnancy hormones stimulates the hair to keep growing, with the hair resting cycle of growth being temporarily suspended. When the pregnancy hormones subside, ie post natally, much to all of the hair suddenly enters the resting phase of growth - which means the hair that is falling out or breaking off, is not being replaced by new hair.
This hair loss caused by pregnancy hormones returning to non-pregnancy levels, is not proven as such, but is an interesting conjecture, as to why the absence of pregnancy hormones play a part in hair loss post natally.
So, if you noticed a fuller head of hair during pregnancy, then it is much more likely that hair loss will occur post natally.
Post natal and Pregnancy Hair Loss In Conclusion
I hope that this page has dispelled many of the needless worries and concerns regarding post natal hair loss.
Always mention any hair loss to your doctor, so that a proper medical diagnosis can be made. It is remotely possible that hair loss experienced during pregnancy may be due to something other the pregnancy or past partum hormone changes.
