Why is My Pubic Hair Falling Out?

Dear Sugar
For a long time now whenever I take a shower my "stuff down there" seems to be falling out. It's kind of scary because of the amount of hair that I am losing. Is this normal? Shedding Sherrie

Dear Shedding Sherrie
Are you anorexic? That can definitely be a big contributor of hair loss. Also, how is your diet? Both iodine and silica are vital for hair growth and if you want to prevent further hair loss - iodine in your diet is a must.

Alopecia could be the problem as well. It is a hair loss disease caused by severe illness, stress or certain hormonal disorders. Another common hormonal disorder linked with hair loss is Addison's Disease.

AD occurs when the adrenal glands do not produce enough cortisol (hormone) or aldosterone. For this reason, the disease is sometimes called chronic adrenal insufficiency, or hypocortisolism.

Also, do not discount the power of DNA. Hair loss can be hereditary. Hey why don't you bring this one up at your next big family Thanksgiving dinner - (just kidding)!
