HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN
There are many reasons why your hair might be falling out. Whether this is temporary, reversible, or permanent there are options you can consider that may help. Hair loss caused by hormonal changes, like pregnancy or menopause, or stress may not require any treatment. Instead, the loss will likely stop on its own after the body adjusts.
Hair loss develops when your immune system attacks your hair follicles. This may be triggered by stress, and it can result in hair loss. Hair may be lost in round patches on the scalp, or across the entire scalp. The hair may grow back and fall out repeatedly over a period of time.
That said, there are a number of possible medications and treatments for hair loss caused by female pattern baldness and other alopecia’s. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks hair follicles. It affects about 4.7 million people in the United States and occurs equally in men and women. The cause is unknown, but it may be triggered by stress or illness.
