In October, Molly Oswaks posted to the popular media site The Daily Beast about how the contraceptives she was taking, specifically Loestrin, had been troublesome for the health of her hair, despite the fact that the pill itself hasn’t given her much trouble in terms of other symptoms, she stated.
Reading through the comments and the rest of the article, you’ll find that hair loss isn’t typically discussed as a major side-effect when an OB-GYN prescribes a pill to a patient. Either it isn’t a thoroughly researched effect or maybe no one really wants to talk about it, seeing how hair loss is probably one of the few symptoms some women just will not tolerate.
But even with the plethora of birth control available to women, it can be difficult to find the right pill for you to help avoid hair loss. For one, the pill is used for a variety of other reasons than preventing pregnancy. You will have to weigh the pros and cons of each pill. It can be a very daunting task, even with the help of a doctor.
You can use this WebMD entry as a beginning point of research, if you’re trying to avoid taking pills that may cause hair loss. There, you will find the reasons why some of these pills cause hair loss, and how sometimes, if you suddenly stop taking the contraceptive, it may induce worse hair loss (at least for the short term.)
You may find at some point of your research, that your genetic makeup and your preferences may not allow for you to freely choose the birth control you want. However, with every problem, there has to be a solution, right?
Over 30 million women suffer from hair loss just in America, so it’s comforting to know that options are available to you should you choose a birth control pill with a hair loss side effect.
