Hair loss Faq: Why hair loss after menopause | HairMD, Pune

Female Hair Loss

I am 48 yr old female, since my periods have been stopped i am experiencing severe hair loss? why ?


The phenomenon you are suffering is hair loss during menopause, I understand menopause is a very emotionally as well as physically disturbing phase. actually, this phenomenon is experienced by every woman on earth inevitably, hair loss is not the only problem you might be facing, you will experience mood swings, hot flashes, insomnia.

Actually, during menopause your ovaries stop working and stop secreting hormones names estrogen and progesterone which plays a very important role in keeping your hair growth normal and strong, but once their production stops your hair follicles starts weakening and hair thinning starts.

There is one another confounding factor which plays role in hair loss is that production of androgens in excess after menopause which is responsible for male pattern hair loss.

Hair loss in the female during menopause is always caused by hormonal changes but other factors also can contribute to this such as nutritional deficiencies, some illnesses, emotional and physical stress.
