Hello everyone. So, I just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy 3 weeks ago! :) Through it all I've been incredibly stressed and frantic resulting in patchy hair loss. How long will hair loss after pregnancy last? Like I said it's been 3 weeks and It doesn't seem to be getting any better. Is there some help you could offer on this? Thank you :)
Hi Martha! Sorry to here your frustration. What you're experiencing is actually quite common. After any prolonged stressful situation an individual may suffer from "patchy hair loss". This hair loss in not permanent and will gradually grow back and go back to normal. It can take weeks to a couple months. Just try and relax a bit more. I realize how crazy your life must be right now, but you must also find a little balance. Try 30 minutes of meditation or yoga each day. Something to help bring a bit more balance into your life. Good luck!
