    Its been an almost 3 year long (losing) battle with hair loss from going ON Loestrin FE 1/20. I was on it about 10 months before I even realized my hair was falling out/thinning. I wish I had known how devastating that pill could be for hair but my doctor never mentioned it and I didn’t think twice about it. Naive me thought all birth control was essentially the same. Here I am almost 3 years later, still shedding/ thinning and clearly going down the androgenic alopecia/female pattern hair loss road.

    At this point, I just want to know if anyone can relate. I know my hair will never be what it was but I would just want to know I am not alone in the birth control & hair loss journey. Thanks for listening.

    I was on birth control for about a year when I noticed hair thinning. No doctor EVER suggested that it could be my birth control until about 3 years later. I was at a new OB/gyn and she urged me to go off of birth control because she has seen links between bc and hair loss. I have been off of it now for about 2 months so it is too soon to tell if there will be any positive changes, but I can empathize with you and also wish doctors talked more about the side effects of medicines they give you
