This is normal change after pregnancy and delivery, known as telogen effluvium. The hair fall is controllable and hair regrowth is possible as this is majorly reversible in majority of the patients. For how long have you been using minoxidil? It usually takes 3 months for minoxidil to have its effect. You can continue using minoxidil 5% lotion 1ml once daily and add vitamin supplements like tab keraglo eva 1 tab daily. Prp therapy (platelet rich plasma) can be added for further benefit, for which you can contact your nearby dermatologist. Also get serum ferritin, hemoglobin, thyroid profile, vit d and vit b12 levels done, as abnormalities in these blood parameters can aggravate hair loss. You can review in 2-3 months. You have to be patient for the results.
