    Default Hair loss?

    Hello all

    Has anyone experienced hair loss, maybe as a side effect of IVF?

    I've discovered a bald spot on my head! About a 50 cent piece size. Not sure how long it's been there - because of how I wear my hair, it might have been there for a while, but not sure...

    My hair also feels thinner all over... but I might be imagining that after freaking out about the bald spot.

    Dr Google tells me it's probably alopecia.

    Has anyone had this before - whether as a result of IVF or anything else??

    I am currently doing IVF, and on high dose meds...

    @Tina Danza I lost hair during intense back-to-back IVF. I have very thick hair and didn't have bald spots, but I suspect that is just because I have so much. We really noticed it with vacuuming. It started growing back once pregnant and I now have two inch hairs mixed in with longer hair.

    I hope it is temporary for you.
