Does Sex Cause Hair Loss?

There have been times when patients ask about sex and hair loss. Some have even bragged about rapidly losing their hair because they have had very active sex lives. Most patients will always try and find a convenient reason for their progressive balding during the earliest stages.

Those with active sex lives are not the only ones suffering from hair miniaturization who try and find a reasonable excuse for their predicament. Often times the person’s partner is blamed, stressful situations, bad relations, or significant changes in their lives. When viewing the issue realistically, time, genetics, and gender, are the only true contributing factors to permanent hair loss. Other environmental factors merely accelerate the speed of the genetically predisposed hair loss. Individuals who are not genetically prone to balding may lose hair because of stress or trauma, but only for a time once the stressor is gone. For people prone to hair loss, once it’s gone it is gone. That is when other options such as hair restoration is needed.
