Detailed Answer:
Hello ,

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

I read carefully your query.

A lot of conditions can cause hair loss.Extreme stress,illness ,surgery,weight changes are some of the common causes.The change of hormones in menopause ,can also trigger hair loss.
If you hair continue to fall out more than normal ,I would suggest to consult a dermatologist.A detailed medical history and physical examination is necessary.
You may need to do some tests to exclude other common causes like anemia, thyroid disorders,polycystic ovary syndrome etc.
-Complete blood count
-Thyroid function tests

If all these tests are normal and physical examination is normal ,then it might be just a temporary hair loss.
You need to consult a dermatologist for proper evaluation.

Hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any question.

Kind regards,
Dr.Rovena Murati
