What is PCOS?
PCOS is a condition can also cause irregular or missed periods, small ovarian cysts and high levels of androgens in your body; it can also impact your appearance, including your hair.
Women with PCOS detect their hair becomes fragile, thin and frizzy – some may notice a change in texture or be aware of more hair coming out on their brush or in the shower than usual. High levels of androgens such as dihydrotestosterone (DHT) can cause female pattern hair loss, affecting the follicles and causing them to stop producing new hair. This can also lead to excess hair growth in other areas of the body, such as the chest and face.
What causes PCOS?
The hormonal imbalance caused by the condition makes the body to produce high levels of androgens – these are male hormones that are usually produced in small quantities in women. High androgen levels can cause weight gain, ovulation problems, excessive hair growth, and acne. Infertility, absent periods, dandruff, oily skin, anxiety, and depression are some other symptoms of the condition.
Hair loss treatment after PCOS
So as to help reduce shedding and prevent hair loss, there are a few steps you can take. You should see a hair loss specialist if you are concerned about sudden or unusual levels of hair fall, but following a proper diet designed for those with Polycystic ovarian syndrome symptoms, getting ample sleep and reducing stress can also help. Avoid pulling your hair back tightly or using harsh chemicals such as bleach or relaxers. When done regularly these actions can lead to hair breakage, and place too much strain on the follicles, which can cause further hair loss from a condition known as Traction Alopecia.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome treatment can often have an impact on your hair, so it’s worth considering discussing substitute medications with your doctor if you feel your present prescription has caused trouble for your hair. Many women with PCOS also have an underactive thyroid, so you should have your thyroid levels checked to rule this out as a cause of hair loss. Hair should begin to grow back with the right diet and medication, but a specialist can advise a personalized hair loss treatment plan to repair any existing damage and ensure most favorable health for your hair going forward.
