For some women suffering with hair loss this could be due to an adverse reaction to the form of hormonal contraceptive they are on. It is the amount of progestin in the formulation that may effect hair growth. There are different levels of androgen activity in contraceptives, the higher the androgen level the higher the DHT, which leads to a shorter hair growth cycle and ultimately thinning hair or hair loss. I regularly see young women with hair loss who are otherwise perfectly healthy and have their hair return to normal when on an alternate form of contraceptive. Usually an oral contraceptive that includes an estrogen component normally helps to increase the hair growth cycle. It is a good idea to discuss the level of androgen activity in contraceptives with your Gp so as the best form is determined for you. Alternatively you can email me for any advise.
