Question: Does Hair Loss Occur After The Menopause?
Answer: Hair loss does sometimes occur in women after the menopause has taken place. This can be seen in thinning in the crown and temples area more predominately. Oestrogen levels play a huge role in determining the quality and thickness of a woman’s hair. There is however other medical conditions that cause the hair to thin dramatically, such as anaemia and thyroid problems. These can easily be identified with a simple blood test. If you are currently taking HRT then you should discuss the dose you are on with your GP. This does not mean that this will improve your hair loss so it is worth speaking to one of our trichologists as each case is different.
