  • it can be but if it is worrying you maybe you should get a check up and get you levels checked.

  • The hair thing scared the crap out of me it came out in clumps. It happens 3 to 12 months after giving birth. Your hair discontinues its cycle of growth stop and shed while you are pregnant it just grows that is why pregnant people have awesome hair. Then it can last while breastfeeding most of the time. Once you quit breastfeeding your hair tried to get rid of all the old hair so you have months of just shedding then your hair will start to behave normal again after 12 months. The sick feeling is because hormones are trying to find the right balance and it makes you tired, and can affect appetite. Sometimes if you get put on BC it can level out the hormones so that you feel better, and then you can stop BC once you feel normal.
