Here are some of the most common questions we get asked about female hair loss.
What can cause sudden hair loss in women?
For women, it’s often caused by telogen effluvium which refers to stress-related hair loss. It can be triggered by things that affect the hair growth cycle, including emotional stress, illness, having a baby (particularly being postpartum), menopause, certain medications, and changes in diet and weight (Asghar et al., 2020).
Telogen effluvium is usually temporary but in some cases it can reveal a genetic tendency to female pattern hair loss and if untreated will continue to worsen over time.
How do I stop female hair loss?
Unfortunately, female hair loss cannot be completely cured. But don’t worry, you can use treatments, such as finasteride, minoxidil and spironolactone, to stop hair loss from progressing and regrow hair. For best results, your doctor may recommend taking more than one treatment at a time (combination therapy).
What is the best hair loss treatment for women?
The reasons for female hair loss can be unique and complex, so the most effective treatment plans recognize this and are designed to target an array of different causes.
How long will it take to see results with my hair loss treatment?
When it comes to treating hair loss, patience is key. Depending on the medication, it can take 6-12 months or sometimes longer to notice visible improvement in hair loss.
What are the side effects of hair loss treatments for women?
Side effects can vary depending on the medication and medication format (e.g. oral vs topical), but here are some examples.
Finasteride and dutasteride may cause sexual dysfunction (e.g. decreased libido), breast swelling and/or tenderness, menstrual irregularities, and increased body hair.
Minoxidil may cause palpitations, faster or irregular heartbeat, blood pressure changes, swelling of the lower limbs, increased body hair, dizziness, or headaches. Systemic side effects are more common with oral minoxidil and skin irritation/rashes are more commonly seen with topical minoxidil.
Spironolactone may cause breast tenderness, dizziness, fainting, and menstrual irregularities.
This is not a complete list of possible side effects. It's important to work with a doctor to determine the safest option for you. You can also learn more about these treatment-specific risks by visiting the XYON Medical Library or speaking to your doctor.
