I am 8 months pp and my hair started falling out at the roots about 3 months ago! I've always had a decent amount of fall because I've always had thick hair, but since this child was born born', My 3rd, my hair has gotten so thin!! Especially at the front above my forehead and my bf noted that there's a thinning spot in the back right side of my head. :( I've always had very long thick hair and id be lying if I said this isn't bothering me bad!! I'm so self conscious. :( I've been scared because I consider myself to be healthy, I take vitamins and drink nothing but water ... And I take care of my hair. I barely brush it due to being afraid to pull it out. And I keep it in a lose bun so not to pull on it. Idk. :( nothing is helping or allowing the process. Is this going to stop? I just learned today that it could be pp hair loss. But how long does it last if so and is there anything at all I can do to slow it? How do u know if that's what it is for sure?could there be something wrong with me? I've never had my hair come out at the roots before and I'm worried. Everytime I look in the mirror it seems to be worse and worse. Any thoughts or advice please?? Btw. ..I'm only 30!!! :( help!

Get your thyroid levels checked by the doctor. I had an overfunction and i was losing alot of hair. Everytime i washed and brushed them there were bunches falling out. Once i was on medication for the thyroids it got alot better. Good luck
