Can Menopause Cause Hair Loss
- Yes it can. Just as increased levels of female hormones during pregnancy provide women with fuller, healthier hair, the declining levels during menopause may have the opposite effect. Also, when the levels of female hormones decrease, the effects of androgens (male hormones) can increase, causing certain hair follicles to fail. Depending on your genetics, these hair follicles produce progressively weaker hair and then no hair at all. If your doctor has advised replacing your declining testosterone levels, this also may work against your luscious locks as many aging women can experience increased hair loss from testosterone, especially if they are “androgen sensitive.”
Just at the age when women are getting older, wiser, and feeling as if they are more comfortable with who they are…it changes. Our hormones change and hair grows where it never had before and then becomes less where it always grew before. Fortunately, with our acquired wisdom we are able to adjust to the new hair growth patterns and the other changes that come along with menopause.
