This is very interesting!! I'll be honest, I didn't read through every post, so sorry if I repeat what everyone's said!
I just went off the pill a week ago - I was originally taking it for my skin, then also for my horrible periods, and THEN also for my menstrual migraines! Well, I've been having massive shedding going on - so much so that I went to 3 doctors for help. After multiple blood tests (more to come!) we found out my testosterone is low. So, I decided to go off the pill (I've been on it for yeaaaaars). I'm hoping this helps. Apparently it will take up to 6 months to really notice. And if my hair gets more curly, I will LOVE that!! I'll just have to stock up on extra strength Midol and migraine medicine. Ugh.
