Melissa Grelo is opening up about some unexpected changes to her body.
The Canadian TV host posted an Instagram reel on Monday of herself in a car, candidly sharing her struggles with "so much" hair loss and weight gain.
"I went off the pill six months ago and I've been dealing with a lot of changes on my body," Grelo began. "Is it all because of the pill? I'm trying to figure that out," she admitted. "Hair loss is one of the things."
Grelo shared she's at the beginning of her journey to figure out whether it's caused by hormones, nutrition or something else.
"I'm just losing so much hair," she emphasized. "I know it doesn't look like it, there's a lot of styling involved here but my ponytail is the thinnest that it's ever been.
"Every hair wash, all of it, is just making me panic if I'm perfectly honest."
Grelo paired her reel with a caption on why she decided to share her journey.
Sharing is caring," she began. "You have come through sharing your stories and your experiences with hair loss and all the other wonderful things associated with perimenopause. But you know what's even better? You share solutions that have worked for you."
She then thanked her followers for being so supportive and chiming in with their personal journeys.
"It's so comforting knowing I'm not alone and that so many of you have found relief through different interventions. Again, thank you for your generosity of spirit. You're helping me and I'm sure many others," Grelo concluded.

Her followers praised the "CP24" co-host for being vulnerable on Instagram.
"It's so great that you're posting this," one user commented. "We all have relatable issues to commiserate over and support each other over, but how would we know if we don't discuss it?," they wrote along with clapping emojis.
"Your transparency and generosity in sharing this is appreciated more than you know. I hope you get the answers you need," another wished for Grelo.
"You're not alone Melissa. I've been dealing with hair loss (and I mean, like a whole lot specially during a shower, brushing hair) and it freaks me out as well," someone shared.
"Thank you always for your vulnerability and willingness to take us along your journey. You are the real deal! Praying your team of doctors can get to the root of what is going on in your body," another person wrote.
