What Are The Reasons Of Hair Loss In Women

"Androgenic Alopecia" takes the first place in the causes of hair loss due to various reasons. If the testosterone hormone in women is above the normal value, it causes "Androgenic Alopecia", that is, male pattern hair loss.

Other reasons are;

Genetic Predisposition

Hair loss is caused by the hereditary nature of the person. The community call It hereditary or hormonal hair loss it is a disease based on genetic hair loss, as a result of high testosterone hormone, androgen hormone increases and triggers hair loss. Genetic hair loss in women is caused by a high rate of hormonal disorders.

Hormonal Changes - Pregnancy

It is observed that hormonal changes occurring in the period immediately following pregnancy and birth, even 2-3 months after the use of a new birth control pill, often trigger hair loss. Hair loss is triggered by the sudden drop of the estrogen hormone, which is very high during pregnancy, after birth. Similarly, women using birth control pills may experience hair loss after they stop using the pills. In addition, hair weakening, thinning and reduction can be seen after the menopause period. These effects can be periodic or permanent.

Thyroid Diseases

Thyroid gland diseases can occur even for no reason. While this disease causes problems such as hot flashes, chills with weight gain and loss, it also leads to hair fall. This situation, which occurs as a result of under- or over-functioning of the thyroid gland, can be solved first with thyroid treatment and then with hair transplantation. In such a case, thyroid hormone levels should be brought back to normal and kept at normal levels. If hormonal disorders continue, the probability of hair fall is very high. After the result of this treatment is successful then hair transplantation can be performed.


Chemotherapy drugs can cause a very common and severe spill called "anagen effluvium". With the use of drugs, the hair starts to fall out in a few weeks and about 80-90% of the hair can be lost. However, with the termination of the use of chemotherapy drugs, the hair is regained. Metabolic collapses due to endocrine glands, arsenic and thallium poisoning and exposure to radiation can cause “anagen effluvium”.

Seasonal Shedding

During the seasons, the cooling and warming of the air causes hair loss. Seasonal hair loss is a temporary hair loss problem that can be seen in almost every old and young person who is experienced in seasonal changes, also it affects the bodies that are weak in terms of vitamins.

Skin Diseases

Diseases such as psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, morphea, scleroderma, sarcoidosis that cause fat tissue on the scalp can lead to permanent hair loss. A dermatologist should be consulted for the diagnosis and treatment of such skin problems.


Day to day life, illnesses, intense work and paste of life can cause acute or chronic hair loss. Stress is most common cause for hair loss. In order to prevent hair loss, it is necessary to stay away from stress sources.

After you learn the main reason of your hair loss as a result of the tests performed, the drug treatment your doctor deems appropriate to do the hair transplantation as a permanent solution.
