I was just about to start a thread asking people if birth control has affected their hair! What's weird about the pill, at least for me, is that I get side effects really late and randomly. But that's a whole other story!

How has tri cyclen lo been working for you and your hair? I'm on that pill too (but will be switching in 2 weeks) and if hormonal changes are making your hair unpredictable then tri cyclen lo may not be the best because your hormone intake changes every week. Just a thought.
