122 – PCOS & Hair Issues: Why it is and What to do!

“I see women that are at their wit’s end with everything, and it’s so emotional to have something that we see as a beauty marker or a feminine marker of who we are in our identity. And so, the issues with hair loss go very deep. It’s not just with the hair. There are very emotional, psychological components to it.” – Dr. Michelle Jeffries

Hair issues are near and dear to my heart. Whether it is losing hair on the head or growing it in unwanted places, it is a struggle that many of us face. Women with PCOS are 60% more likely to have mood related disorders. And I know for me, when I was struggling with hair loss, it really added to my sense of depression and isolation, and it exacerbated those emotional issues. So, I invited Dr. Michelle Jeffries back to give us some answers about why we experience hair loss and what we can do about it. Listen in (or read the transcript) as we discuss:

  • Types of hair loss and the relationship to PCOS
  • Hormone and nutrient deficiency testing
  • Suggested supplements
  • Alternative Treatments: Essential oils, Acupuncture, Laser, electrolysis, platelet rich plasma (PRP), Saw palmetto, Nutrafol
  • Topical over the counter and prescriptions
  • Hair transplants
