Pregnancy and Hair Loss

What are the Top Reasons for Pregnancy and Hair Loss?

Pregnancy and Hair Loss - Pregnancy is one of the most difficult times for a woman and her family, but the delivery of a baby makes the journey worthwhile. However, the body of a woman goes through many changes during maternity – resulting in various mental changes such as irritation or mood issues and physical changes such as bloating and hair loss. The expert hair surgeons at SHIFT Hair Transplant and other top hair clinics have recently shared the top reasons for pregnancy and hair loss issues.

Changes in estrogen level

During pregnancy, hair becomes fuller, shinier and thicker. This is caused by higher levels of estrogen in the body and keeps hair in the growth phase. Once childbirth is completed, the levels go back to normal and over half the amount of hair is sent to a resting phase. This makes about 60% of hair drop in the subsequent months after childbirth. This leads to some amount of thinning of hair and makes females suffer from acute hair loss. It is apparent in about 10% of all new mothers.

Insufficient nutrition

During pregnancy, the body has to fulfil its own nutritional needs as well as the needs of the growing baby. At this time, most pregnant women suffer from anaemia as the blood needs more amount of iron for sustenance. Poor consumption of iron can result in loss of hair. Insufficient intake of protein, as well as minerals and vitamins, can also lead to loss of hair, making women consider hair transplant in Turkey.

Excessive vitamin intake

Pregnant women are recommended supplements to increase the amount of vitamin in their body. SHIFT Hair Transplant experts hold that the intake of a lot of some amount of vitamins, like Vitamin A in retinol form, can also lead to loss of hair.

Hormonal changes

Other than estrogen, patients can suffer from changes in other hormones during pregnancy. Due to significant hormonal changes at this time, the normal cycle of hair growth is stopped or thrown into disarray. This leads to excessive hair fall, also referred to as “Telogen effluvium”. Telogen effluvium is also possible due to severe emotional changes during pregnancy. Generally, the problem resolves itself in 2 – 3 months even without any medical intervention or hair transplant in Turkey.


Hair loss can also result from some ailments during pregnancy, such as fungal infection or gestational diabetes. The use of some medicines, such as those used in curing depression, hypertension and anxiety, is another chief cause of pregnancy and hair loss.
