(female)
I have been losing my hair for about 8 years. I been told all kinds of things like telogen effluvium and anemia due to fibroids. I was told that a hysterectomy would reverse the condition. It did not and its been 18 months.

I just started taking Omega 3′s 1000mg for hair growth, now I read that it causes hair loss. I have been so depressed from this. I had such beautiful thick hair. Is is true that Omega 3 will make my hair loss worse? I have about 1/2 of my hair left.

Thank You

Fish oilAll women with hair loss need to be checked out by their doctor for hormone imbalances and other conditions that can cause hair loss. Telogen effluvium is a temporary loss, but it’s possible that a hysterectomy could contribute more loss due to the surgical stress.

As for Omega-3 pills, I’ve written before that I don’t think it has anything to do with hair loss, but I don’t know of any good scientific study that discusses possible Omega-3′s role in hair growth or loss.
