i am 13 wks post-natal and i would say for the last month my hair has been falling out! i know this can happen cause you produce more hair when pg and it's the excess coming away, but im worried :-(
i was at my hairdresser last week and he said it was fine cause there were no bauld patches but i just feel my hair is getting thinner. thankfully i do have good thick hair (should i say did!) i know i souldn't stress as i will make it worse.
hi! I posted the about my post-partum hair loss last year when it was coming out in droves. Apparently no-one else could notice, but I still worried. Ten months on and my hair is fine - I never went bald or got any bald patches and the hair loss calmed down a few months ago. There's not a lot you can do about it other than reassure yourself that it won't last long and it shouldn't get too severe (easier said than done, though, i know!)
Mine fell out to the extent that after I dried my hair, it looked like I had laid a lovely brown rug on the carpet!! Seriously though, I did develop a bald patch and now I'm pg again and have been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid- thyroid problems can cause hairloss, so maybe ask GP for a test... my GP doesn't know whether my thyroid was caused by this pg or by post-partum changes after DS.
