I will have to check to see if they have checked my iron...But Iknow they checked my thyroid 3 times. i am also jaking that Jolivett....read up on that a bit it says it could cause hair loss. But All I read it says it should go back to norm by 12 months..He is 15 months old and it is only getting worse. you can see threw my hair and see my scalp. My stress level is raising every morning I look at my hair. Like I said being bald freaks me out. I am just so scared!!!

Hair loss after pregnancy is pretty normal. If your doctors have checked everything, all you can really do is wait it out until new hairs begin to grow. It was at about 3 1/2 months my hair began to fall out. It still is, but not is the volume it once was and new hairs are coming in. Clara is 6 1/2 months. Take your vitamins. It could be that you're stressed out. Think of some ways to remove stress from your day to day maybe? Here's some more info.

Have your pituitary levels checked. If that's overactive it can make you lose hair. I dealt with that.

My hair has been falling out big time since the day I got pregnant. I don't know of anything you can do, just wanted you to know your not the only one.

Yes, I agree with April. I've heard of it being caused by thyroid issues or lack of iron (I think). Check in with your doctor.

you should go see a doctor and make sure it's not some other kind of problem. i had massive hair loss too and it turned out that my thyroid was really low.
