Hello good people, Here today because of hair loss significantly around my temples, front, and sides of my head but not truly the crown area. I lose as many as 200 a day but it fluctuates. I wash about 3 times a week with sulfates. I’m 28 and just got off Aubra/Vienva BC back in April of this year after 4 years. Well aware now that it’s not a hair friendly pill, yet my gyno never felt the need to mention there was an attachment of hair loss to levonorgestrel. I got off the pill also because my libido died and I was depressed constantly. I also have practiced the curly girl method very vigorously since Nov 2017 yet have ceased conditioning my hair entirely since I did notice dramatic shedding on that kind of routine. No genetic balding in my family on either side except for my mother who had chronic CTE from 16 pregnancies (very unusual case of hormonal loss since so many full carried terms). I have had eating disorders since adolescence as well as chronic anemia. I have never had any iron or ferratin checks but plan to do that ASAP. No PCOS, very regular periods, no excess hair, no cysts on my ovaries. Planning to get the copper IUD to avoid all hormonal birth control, but have no idea what that will do to my vagina so we’ll see. I feel that I should mention that I’m pretty sure I have very lower blood pressure because I faint very occasionally after not eating or smoking marijuana too much. Not sure if related. Should I book a derm appointment and push for a biopsy? Very worried that my TE has pushed into Androgentic Alopecia due to the high androgen factor of my birth control for 4 years. My mother wears wigs and feels empowered in her late 60’s but I am wearing hats and scarves feeling horrible about myself. Pictures are hard to include but I will add them to this thread once I take some of my sides.
