How common is hair loss after pregnancy? I'm losing large clumps daily but I'm also being tested for lupus. I gave birth 4 months ago. Cause?

In brief: Hair loss

Congrats on your new baby.
Enjoy! Regarding your hair loss I cannot link it to your pregnancy but there may be a link to lupus if that is diagnosed. Independent of lupus you must see your obstetrician about hair loss.
