INFORMATION FOR WOMEN OF CHILDBEARING AGE WHO HAVE HAIR LOSS

 

What is hair loss?

Known by the medical term, alopecia, hair loss is fairly uncommon during pregnancy, although it is normal for hair follicles to enter a resting phase, causing your hair to look thinner than usual and to remain that way until a few months after delivery. Alopecia, or baldness, can develop for other reasons, however. The condition occurs more often in men, but women, including those of reproductive age, also can experience alopecia, due to genetics, hormonal changes, or cancer treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy that involves the scalp.
