Hair Loss can happen due to a number of reasons, however, giving birth is one of its main causes. Yes, postpartum hair loss is more common than you might think.
As you undergo pregnancy, your body is going through hormonal changes. Female hair loss is often caused by changing hormones. This hormonal hair loss can be seen at various points in life, particularly after childbirth or when entering the menopausal stage.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, childbirth hair loss affects 40 to 50 percent of new moms. This type of hair loss occurs within a couple of days or weeks after giving birth.
Typically, new moms will see an increase in hair fall and hair thinning after giving birth. During pregnancy, your estrogen levels rise, leading to fuller, thicker hair. But all of that extra hair falls out three to six months after birth. Your estrogen levels fall and your body has a higher level of testosterone and, in turn, DHT, which attaches to hair receptors, stimulating hair to enter the resting and falling stage as opposed to the growth phase. This leads to hair loss and hair thinning.
