Why is my hair falling out?

My hair keeps shedding and it is driving me crazy! I am not taking any medications and I am not sick (that I know of). Why is it happening and how do I make it stop?

  • Are you stressed? Have you had your thyroid checked? My hair fell out like crazy until I had my thyroid checked and got on supplements.

  • Are you postpartum? My hair fell out in clumps after I had my baby, but it quit on its own once my hormones settled down.

  • Definitely stressed, but what else is new?
    Not postpartum, but would Depo have anything to do with it?

    ^^^That's a good question to ask your Dr. I know I would.

  • Depo is when I found out I had thyroid issues and hair falling out was the first symptom I noticed. I got off the Depo (only had 3 shots) and had kids 3 years later and my hypothyroidism went away until 5 years later (last year). I personally believe the Depo screwed all kinds of things up in my body. Talk with your doctor.
