Dr. Tara Scott: When Do Women Experience Hair Loss? (Video)

(Video Transcript)

Dr. Tara Scott here, and today I want to talk a little bit about hair loss.

It’s one of the questions I get asked all of the time. And, first, let’s break it down -- when is a common time for women to get a lot of hair loss?

Well, we always think about postpartum as one of the first times. Things grow beautifully, you have beautiful luscious hair while you are pregnant. And, then when those hormones drop after you deliver that baby, and that placenta comes out, a lot of women experience postpartum hair loss.

The second time in a woman’s life that it can be common to lose a lot of hair can be when you are going through menopause, and we’ll break down in another video which hormones are responsible for triggering this.

But, at the time that you are going through menopause and having less and less periods, a lot of women experience hair loss. Hair loss can be most likely in the temples, but it can be all over. And, so the different types of hormones affect where it is.

And, the third time that I’m seeing a lot of hair loss recently is post-COVID infection. It seems like because there is an upregulation of your immune system with people who -- not just women, women and men -- who have had a serious C-19 infection are experiencing the hair loss. 

Now, hair grows in three-month cycles. So, if you’re losing it now, you’ve got to look back to three months ago to see what was going on to see if you can find out the cause.
