So I'm sure most of you have read my story and I don't want to bore anyone by repeating it but I need advice asap... This week I am off my bcp (Ortho Tri-cyclin Low). Although deep down i do NOT think the bcp are causing my loss, I have nothing else to show for my hair loss (all my blood tests are relatively normal (many hormones, both female and male are veyr low)). I don't have a diagnosis yet, some say TE, but I believe Androgenetic Alopecia. I want to start a treatment now -- either 2% Rogaine 1x at night or stopping bcp or using Tricomin. But here is the thing, I don't want to do all at once or I'm never going to be able to tell what is helping (or what is hurting) the hair loss! What do you guys think? Should I get off bcp first, then start some regrowth treatment (either rogaine or tricomin)? Or start regrowth, stay on the bcp for a few more months, then get off? or neither. HELP (and quick, since Sunday I'd have to start the bcp's again)!!!! I asked my endo about spironalactone, yasmin, etc. and she said those treatments are to decrease androgen production and since my testorone tested very low, she didn't think it would really help me (but not really make the hair loss worse either). So what are my options?!!!
