loss of Hair + new gynae (distressed)
Hi all

has anyone experienced any hair loss while pregie? I’m 18weeks and about 5 days and I have a huge Bald spot above my left ear, Im not sure if it is something that could be associated with my pregnancy !???? thankfully I have long hair so it is not really noticable ...

also I’ve decided to change Gynae's since Im not comfortable with my current doc- she hasn’t done any blood test on me yet and that worries me ?? should it ?
Given my history Ie: miscarriage, endometriosis ect is changing Gynae’s now a good idea ?

Hair loss can be a side effect of pregnancy.
Before changing doctors, perhaps you should ask your current doctor about the blood tests. If you have been seeing her for some time, she may already have some of the information, such as your blood group.
