After giving birth, there come the consequences that usually bring suffering for women for a small period of time. That suffering is not a bad one, however, but it has its own effects within her behavior. For example, hair loss after pregnancy is what most of the women got used to, as a result of hormonal changes and the wide range of transformations their body has gone through.
When it comes to the changes suffered by women while being pregnant, the symptoms are almost the same in most of the cases. It is supposed to stop by the 6th month and in the cases of mothers-for-the-first-time, they could feel really alarmed. Why would that happen? Maybe because they are not used to looking in the mirror in the morning and noticing that a big part of their hair is gone and they look horrible.
Doctors have reached the conclusion that post-natal depression is what actually causes hair loss after pregnancy. Women become emotional and sad and their self esteem gets lower and lower. They start to doubt about the way they look and the people they love and feel rather like a difficulty on the shoulders of their husbands.
Scientifically, hair loss after pregnancy is explained as a response of the body to the loss of a significant quantity of estrogen. While being pregnant, the levels grow more and more and feed the body. After having received all the nutrients, the body responses over the hair growth.
However, hair loss after pregnancy comes as a next-step after having lost that level of estrogen and the body has no power to sustain hair strength as it did during the pregnancy. There are treatments created especially for women who suffer from this disorder, but it appears there are many other causes of hair loss. Among them there is the interruption from taking contraceptives or even abortion.
Our advice for you is to keep calm, because hair loss after pregnancy will end up in a few months.
For instance, many new mommies choose to adopt shorter hair cuts that help the hair regenerate, are easier to maintain and avoid any longer hairs strangling the babies’ wrists or fingers; you can inspire yourself from men’s hairstyles and feel modern and care-free.
There are cases when women managed to escape this disorder with no medicines or special treatments. If you know how to understand this change in your body and if you do not stress or aggravate your condition, things are about to solve from themselves.
However, we do not recommend you to avoid washing your hair properly and taking care of it. You cannot expect it to recover soon without even maintaining the same care you took during pregnancy.
