I have been on Diane 35 for 4 months now. I do not have any health/hormone problems. I am taking it strictly for Androgenetic Alopecia. At month 2 I noticed my hair looking a lot thinner, and as I watch, every month it gets worse, but I am not shedding more than normal for me. ??? At month 3, I noticed what I though was regrowth, or miniturized (cuz the hairs are short).And I continue to see these. What is strange is my hair is still visibly thinning despite these "new" hairs!! Its like the new hairs arent filling the thin spots. I can see more scalp in front and my part is getting wider. If these are regrowth, wouldnt my hair appear to be getting thicker (less scalp visable) instead of the opposite? No one can answer this for me and I see a new derm next week (with no guarantee that he will help me) The only problems I ever had with different BCP'S in the past was shedding, which I dont have on this one..Isnt it very unlikely that an anti androgen would cause miniturization or worsen hair loss?? Who thinks I should give it 6 months to a year? Who thinks I should switch to another pill? Who thinks I should not take a BCP at all and just do anti androgens? Your advice is greatly appreciated.
