What to do? What to do? I have been dealing with hair loss since stopping Yasmin in april 2010. I am 36 years old. Ive been reading from this site for many months & appreciate everyone's stories. There's so much i could write about how this has affected my life greatly, but will try to stick to the facts. I know all of you completely understand how it can take over your life! I first noticed a little shedding in June/July. I've never had much hair so didn't shed hardly any prior. Then, in August it really started falling out. I did find out my ferritin level was 9, but it has since raised. The texture of my hair completely changed, oily roots, fried ends, even something that looked like dandruff, but wasn't. The hair loss was through the temple areas back more than the top of my scalp. It then got better nov, dev, & Jan. I thought it was the iron & my nightmare was over. Then, in feb I started noticing the same texture change & knew it was getting ready to fall out again. Sure enough, it began soon after. My gyno has recommended I go back on the bc pill (mononessa), prescribed spironolactone, minoxidil 2%. I was already taking biotin, multi vit, & using nioxin shampoo & conditioner. I did start the spironolactone, but am hesitant to continue taking it or to go back on the bc pill or use the minoxidil. I know it's my hormones! I didn't have a period till Dec, & still am only bleeding 1-2 days. My face & back have really been broken out, but seem to be getting better. I don't know what to do. If my body is trying to get normal, why would the hair loss get better, then start again? What should I do?????????
