      I first experienced tinnitus a couple of months ago a few weeks after the birth of my daughter. It was tonal at first. The pulsatile tinnitus kicked in maybe a month ago. At first I wasn't even sure it was pulsatile but it became louder and more recognizable. Now it is so loud that it is almost covering up the tones. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

      There have been several women on Tinnitus Talk who have experienced either tinnitus or pulsatile tinnitus, or both, after giving birth. I suspect that it could be due to blood pressure, many hormonal changes, and/or excess fluid retention in the body.

      My daughter experienced tinnitus during her pregnancy and a few months afterward, and then it went away. Yours could go away, or maybe get calmer at least, over the next few months.

      I agree that you should see a doctor to discuss it, to see if they have any suggestions.

      Thanks. My ENT isn't interested in running any tests. I realized today that it has actually been 3 months. I kind of doubt that it can go away at this point.
