Hi everyone! So I have been diagnosed with Androgenetic Alopecia for about a year and half in my early 20s which was caused by Nexplanon birth control. After being off birth control for about a year to get my hormones tested, everything was normal, I went back onto ortho tri cyclen. I was on that for years prior to switching to Nexplanon *regrets* and everything was fine. I started the birth control in the beginning of February and my dosage of Spironolactone was uped to 100 mg twice a day so 200 mg today. Now when I work out I break out in hives and my face burns. After some research, I have discovered that estrogen can raise histamines which causes exercised induced urticaria. I was thinking of switching to desogen birth control as it has slightly lower estrogen that ortho tri cyclen to see if I can stop this? I am very concerned because this only happens when I sweat so I am nervous for the summer. Does anyone have any advice? Should I lower my Spironolactone?
