Hair Loss in Women

You are probably losing hair due to a condition called telogen effluvium. This is a common type of hair loss. Your hair should stop falling out within three to six months and should eventually grow back normally.

Call your doctor if this pattern of hair loss persists or if you are concerned that other factors in your life are contributing to your hair loss.
