I've posted this in TTC also.
I had a MC in December at 12 weeks pregnant. Starting last week my hair started to fall out a lot lot more than normal in the shower and when i brush it. It is starting to worry me now. I did a google search and seen a mention that you can lose a lot more hair than normal usually 3 to 4 months after a shock/ operation/ childbirth or miscarriage.
Has this happened to anyone else? I definitely didn't lose this much after having my DS. And I'm now 4.5 months after MC.
I've made an appt with the doctor for tomorrow morning.
i'm very sorry for your loss.
a couple of months after i had dd - i was pulling loads of hair out of the hair brush way more than usual, also losing a lot more when washing etc - plughole wasn't fun to clean! its probably just the hormones clearing out of your system. hope the doc puts your mind at ease.
Very sorry for your loss Little Pudding. I've no advice on your direct question. Just to say I had a conversation with hairdresser about hair loss after pregnancy - apparently when pregnant you lose very little hair and then afterwards you make up for it. He strongly reommended Redken's Advance shampoo - it's meant to stop the hair loss. Could be worth a try.
Little pudding, don't want to frighten you but I had a MC in Feb and since then have been diagnosed with alopecia - I have 2 tennis ball size bald patches - now I do have a good bit of hair and its all at the back and I can hide it well - but no more high ponies for me!! As well as the MC in Feb I lost my Mam end of Dec so it was all a double whammy.
The doc won't do anything for you expect perhaps refer you to a dermatologist - I am still waiting on my appointment!!!
A hairdresser friend advised me to rub in white vinegar at night - something about it stimulating the foliciles (sp**) - only doing it for a few days and still bald as an egg but sure its worth a shot although smelling like a chipper is not good
Best of luck to you
