Hair Loss in Women

Many women notice changes in their hair growth and hair pattern around the time of menopause. Hair loss often occurs in a hereditary pattern. This is caused by a change in natural hormone levels.

However, other medical problems that occur around the time of menopause can also cause hair loss. If you have ongoing hair loss or notice a dramatic change in the appearance of your hair, call your doctor's office to arrange an evaluation.
