New relationship and "miraculous" regrowth

I have had extremely extensive AA for the last 7 years, since I had a traumatic breakup, I had not dated anyone since, until 9 months ago, when I started seeing someone great, who accepts my alopecia and my hair system. We are keeping it "casual" but have so much fun together!! : ) Since we started seeing each other my hair has been growing back, the people at the salon I go to for my bonded-on hair system services even asked if I've been doing a new treatment to make my hair grow (I haven't!).

Every month more spots fill in, still not enough to think about ditching the system, but I am cautiously optimistic. I heard about a girl with AU who experienced complete regrowth after meeting a wonderful guy. Is it possible that romance and "sexy time" could have an affect on Alopecia? Any thoughts or personal experiences to add? Thanks!! <3

Well, my social life at college brought ALL my AA hair back at age 20ish. I was then able to have hair through dating, courtship, marriage and children.

Then came the mother-in-law. I have had AT ever since her.

Tallgirl!  You are crazy!  

Dominique!  I am truly happy for you!  My hair as been random as well.  But knowing that you met your friend while experiencing hair loss is one situation that you know you both can handle as a couple.

Now that I think of it, I had AU and once I started dating my boyfriend, my body hair and my eyelashes have grown back and my eyebrows are currently growing.  I'm starting to get a lot of regrowth spots in my head, I have to start shaving it off almost every week now.

Got dumped for another woman, let's see if it all falls out again.

I had a similar experience. My Alopecia Areata would act up each time my relationships would start to sour or end.

When a new relationship began and I felt happy, my hair would fill in again. It seems ridiculous but I think the hormones or endorphin's from a new relationship stimulate regrowth.  Now if I could only find happiness outside of relationships. lol!
