Hair loss and skin issues

Post by LadyBear »

Hi all,
Has anybody had hair loss and/or acne since having their ectopic pregnancy? Any suggestions or ideas on when it might stop?
As soon as I had my surgery I had mild acne pop up on my face and just won’t go away no matter what I try (very unusual for me). It’s also on my shoulders and back a bit.
More concerning is my hair loss! I actually think it really started falling out (or breaking? I think both) about 2 weeks ago when my beta levels finally went down all the way.
Maybe these are “postpartum” symptoms?

Hi LadyBear,

I'm so sorry to hear you've suffered an ectopic pregnancy and loss. I'm not medically qualified, so cannot comment on your specific situation. However, with the decrease in hormones following an ectopic pregnancy, our bodies may react in different ways. As well, ectopic pregnancy and surgery is a traumatic and stressful situation for our bodies and emotions, and your body may be reacting to stress from the events. I always recommend following up with your GP if the condition causes you on-going concern and for peace of mind.

With good wishes,
