After pregnancy many women experience hair loss. This is caused because many hair follicles simultaneously enter in the resting (telogen) phase. Within two to three months after giving birth, some women will notice large amounts of hair fall because of delaying in Telogen phase.
This can last for one to six months, but resolves completely in most cases. This condition is caused by the hormonal changes that take place after a woman's body recovers from her pregnancy.
Birth control pills: Women who have a genetic predisposition to suffer from Androgenic Alopecia can have it occur at a much younger age by taking birth control pills. The hormonal changes that occur trigger the onset of the Androgenic Alopecia.
You should avoid pills or ask your doctor before getting any drug. Taxotere (docataxel), a chemotherapy drug commonly used in breast cancer treatment, has been found to cause permanent alopecia or hair loss. If you or any of your friend is suffering from alopecia after taking the Taxotere drug you can file Taxotere hair loss lawsuits.
After the discontinuation of the pill the woman may notice that her hair begins shedding two or three months later. This may continue for six months after that it usually stops. In some cases the process cannot be reversed and the woman may not regrow some of the hair that were lost.
