Female Hair Loss: Fluctuating Hormones27 May 2009, by FEMALE HAIR LOSS in
Many women experience hair loss after having a baby.This is because the high levels of oestrogen present during pregnancy keep the follicles in their growth phase, so the hair that would normally shed during that period isn’t released. There can then be a sudden and distressing loss of hair around six weeks or so after the birth. This shedding can last for a few months, although the hair will grow back in time.
Good nutrition will help and the Pill can be beneficial too, especially those such as Dianette, which contain anti-androgens (antimale hormones). HRT often has a positive effect, but some of the drugs used may contribute to hair fall, so discuss what you are taking with your doctor. Thinning hair is often associated with polycystic ovary syndrome, which can be treated with drugs and a topical application of anti-androgens.
When it’s time to see the Trichologist: If you begin losing hair rapidly, and or are cosmetically concerned about baldness, consult your Trichologist about treatment options. You can receive a free hair loss consultation with a Westminster Trichologist at our Hair Centre.
The point is that you are not getting to the real problem and you should seek specific professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist.
