Hi Dr. Epstein,
I hope this e-mail reaches you doing great!
Quick question for you. I was informed a week ago that I’m pregnant. Luckily, I had not begun the Rogaine. Will my hair be affected in an adverse way after the delivery when my hormones have gone back to their normal state? I’ve done some reading on this, but don’t know if my situation is the same and figured I should ask. Any info or advice you can offer is greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
Congrats - that’s wonderful news!
You may experience some hair loss after you deliver, but there is not much you can do other than to take Biotin (a hair nutrient vitamin) and make sure you don’t become anemic. Typically the hair loss associated with pregnancy is temporary, and your transplanted hairs should pretty much all grow back if they fall out.
