Hair loss in women can be triggered by numerous medical conditions as well as various lifestyle factors such as extreme stress, diets, and childbirth. Common medical causes of hair loss in women include:
- Thyroid problems (producing too much or too little thyroid hormone)
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a chronic hormonal imbalance with numerous side effects including hair loss.
- Alopecia areata, in which the body’s own immune system mistakenly attacks healthy hair follicles and causes hair to fall out in patches.
As a starting point, hair loss experts recommend testing for thyroid problems and hormone imbalances. In many cases, hair will grow back once the cause is addressed.
Emotional impact of hair loss can affect the way both men and women look or think about themselves and can have a huge effect on self-confidence.
