Why is my hair falling out and what can I do to make it stop?

Hair loss after a pregnancy, during perimenopause and after menopause is an extremely common and distressing complaint in women. The hair follicles can be very sensitive to changes in the concentrations or ratio of steroid hormones in the blood stream (including progesterone, estrogen and testosterone), but can also be influenced by nutritional, environmental and genetic factors, too. A dermatologist is best able to determine possible treatment options to help prevent further loss or to possibly reverse significant hair loss.
