Is It Normal For My Hair To Fall Out After Giving Birth
Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

My mirena (levonorgestrel) iud runs out on the 16th of this month is there a time frame before it stops working and how long do I have to get it replaced?
