Post Partum Hair Loss - Pls Read

I had this with both my kids. I lost a ton of hair. It may take like 5 yrs to recover. Anyone go through this & how long has it been for you? is your hair back to normal including thickness?

  • I lost hair after I had my daughter, then it started easing up. After I got the Mirena, I started losing it again like crazy until a couple of months after I had it removed. It's been fairly normal for almost a year now (my dd will be 2 in a month).
