Re: Telogen Effluvium and Pregnant (What to do?)
I was hoping you could update me on your hair loss story - did it stop, and when? How long did it go on for? Did you have bald spots? I am 7 months pregnant, and have been losing my hair for the past 5 months. I feel the same as you did, I'm traumatized, showering is torture and makes me cry.
I went to a dermatologist who said telogen effluvium, however my case is unique, as I had surgery 3 months prior to becoming pregnant. However my derm said that the pattern of the hair loss indicates hormonal hair loss.
I'm terrified I will lose most of it before my shower in a month. It's been 5 months and I feel it is just as bad as it was 2 months ago. My levels are all normal, except for my hormone levels of course (which are normal for a pregnant lady).
Please let me know how your story developed. I've been trying for some time now to find someone with a story similar to mine, and yours seems to be the best I've found. Thanks in advance for any help or words of advice.
