Visitor’s Question:


I have been suffering from hair loss. I suffered after my son was born 4 years ago and my hair eventually returned to normal. However, since my daughter was born 14 months ago my hair loss has been very bad. The doctors said I should give it a time when it started falling out and that a loss was normal. However as it is continuing I am now getting concerned, as a lot is falling out and my hair is getting very fine and you can see my scalp.

Can you please give me an idea treatment options with you?

Shuna’s Answer:

Dear K,

Thank you for contacting Sussex Trichology.

Many women contact me with exactly this concern, postpartum hair loss can often be assumed for too long after birth. I would be interested to examine your hair loss, how the hair is growing/speed and whether any blood tests were prudent. I also like to decipher if the loss is diffuse or more patterned.

Be rest assured tho that all can be treated and you can be sure I will be honest, sympathetic and supportive with your concerns.

Please read a blog written by my colleague Kelly, for interest: Kelly’s Diary – Pregnancy, Hair Loss & Me Part 1 and Part 2.

I look forward to hearing from you.
