Common Questions and Answers about Hormone imbalance and hair loss

Hello, Hair loss after hysterectomy or menopause can be due to estrogen deficiency. Progesterone does not cause hair loss. In the absence of a clinical examination, I am able to list only a few differentials. The causes of hair fall could be due to stress, fungal infections, alopecia aereata, hormonal imbalance (overproduction of dihydrotestosterone and thyroid hormones irregularities), malnutrition, telogen effluvium and sebum plugs on skin.
My dr mentioned that this can all be caused by the ph of my vagina so I usually try the boric acid once I feel one coming. Now about the hormone imbalance, Ive noticed that my hair over the past yr has been falling out a lot... Im dr says this too is related to hormones..has anyone gone thru any of this??
I guess what I'm asking is that do any of you think that these symptoms could be caused by extreme hormone imbalance? No one has ever tested my hormones before. I find it weird that they all started almost a month to the day I quit birth control. Also, my period was never regular when I was younger, I matured late and would sometimes go 6 months without getting my period. I was also anorexic during high school which didn't help. But I am no longer and eat very healthy.
Birth control pills and normalizing hormones with drugs and weight loss will help. Consult a gynaecologist and an endocrinologist for an evaluation. Hope this helps.
It was suggested by a friend who has had similar symptoms after having her child that it is a hormone imbalance similar to menopause, that my hormones might be fluctuating badly. I have noticed that these hot flushes occur a week before and during my period, but that has been for the past two months, that might change It has been 3 weeks between both periods (I came on a week early this time), one period I had lasted 2 days. During the past year my periods have been on and off.

Hello, Many people may develop a condition called telogen effluvium characterized by massive hair loss after being infected with dengue. This is because of the metabolic and hormonal stress during the course of illness. Sometimes even the medications that are given for the treatment of dengue fever can lead to this condition. .Telogen effluvium is a reactive process caused by a metabolic or hormonal stress or by medications. Usually recovery is spontaneous and takes at least 6 months.
I have a good thick amount of hair, but like you I get globs of hair coming out at a time (about 6 strands). I think over the past year it has lessened as I tried a different shampoo. I was using Fructis.
Clearly something is going on. Is there a familial history of female hair loss? I had chemo six years ago and my hair is just now starting to get thicker.....thank goodness! I know there was a time when my marriage was in trouble and I was very unhappy.....my hair was thinning......stress maybe? I know hormone imbalance can cause many different problems......maybe your gyn or family physician......I would talk with my gynecologist I think. Good luck......

God Bless, TJ Consider an Alternative Treatment When I have had major bouts of hair loss (despite low normal TSH and being on a T4/T3 drug), I took the advice of a doctor I interviewed for my book, Living Well With Hypothyroidism.

I have considered HT, but at the moment I think I am too young, considering the likelihood my hairline will recede further. I have started using alecepin caffeine shampoo, hopefully this will keep my hair healthy and stop my hair receeding further.
hair loss, irregular periods, weight gain, decreased sex drive, and fatigue. My doctor ordered an MRI which had not evidence of tumars or masses. My question is why is this happening?
