On another thread, a few women including myself said that they experienced hair loss in the months following D-Day.
I would suggest you get your blood-work done and check for vitamin deficiencies. I went to the doctor's yesterday and was prescribed anti-depressants but also had my blood-work done because I lost more hair than I expected to lose. (I expected to lose some from having given birth because hair stops falling out when pregnant but I lost a TON around my crown and have to wear my hair down or it's noticeable in a bun).
Admittedly, while I cook healthy 4-square meals for my son when he's home; when he's not here, I don't cook and don't eat as much as I should (no appetite really). I also have not been eating a lot of meat and no, I'm not a vegetarian. That all means I'm getting a lot less nutrients even though I take prenatal and other vitamin supplements to try to off-set my poor diet.
I am very low in vitamin B12 and will need to go back to the Drs. for an injection. I ate like a Queen before D-day so I believe I was depressed before I started eating less vs. ate less and got depressed but two of the things that B12 deficiency can cause are hair loss and depression (and weight loss and other symptoms).
Anyway, I thought I'd share that here in case it helps anyone. It might be worth getting your blood tested to ensure your vitamin levels aren't low.
ETA - I meant hairline not crown - now that would be worse lol.
