I'm 17, and I lose a lot of hair due to stress... But whenever it's time of the month, I lose a lot more hair? Is this normal? I run my hands thru. My hair... Not pulling hard at it.. And a big handful comes off. I also have cramps that are so bad that I have to sit down.. Otherwise I feel so much pain that I would pby pass out... Any help/suggestions is appreciated.. Thanks.

I started my periods when I was 12 years old and I used to get so ill with them that I would as you said have to sit down or lay down in bed as the pain was too much I used to vomit and be very dizzy to the stage where I would be walking and have to just sit down where I was then and there and my flow was very heavy I also had loss of hair.
My doctor put me on the pill when I was 14 and that really helped I still suffered bad periods until I was approx 18 but they were alot better than before I started the pill.

I still to today lose hair and i'm now 26 it's just hormones so I have been told by my doctor.

I hope this has helped you in some way.
