Telogen Effluvium

Woman Caressing Her Stomach While Pregnant San Francisco CA

A term you may need to know if you’re pregnant

“People always say that pregnant women have a glow. And I say it’s because you’re sweating to death.” – Jessica Simpson

Pregnancy changes things. There is no doubt about that. Your body becomes more round, you may gain a glow (or sweat), and there’s a baby forming a new life inside of you. Wow! That’s a lot of change, and there’s so many more, for sure.

One change you may not anticipate when you’re pregnant is that some women suffer from Telogen Effluvium (TE). This is the sudden and dramatic increase in hair loss. It commonly happens after pregnancy when your hormone levels fall. Pregnancy is not the only thing that may cause TE. It can also happen as a result of stress, severe illness, poor nutrition and some medications.

If you’re pregnant, there is certainly a lot of changes, but apart from having a baby after it’s all over, most things return to normal. This normalcy is regained again when it comes to your hair as well. Your hair will most likely regain its former beauty and fullness after your baby arrives.

If you’re suffering from more permanent hair loss, it’s important to discover why you are losing your hair. At Union Square Hair Transplant, Dr. Ransom can make better hair solution recommendations based on your diagnosis. If you are suffering from hair loss, contact Union Square Hair Transplant today to arrange a consultation with Dr. Ransom.
