Has anyone found any benefit to switching to another pill? I am on my third pill in two years, but I am willing to try anything to start being happy with my hair again. My doctor did respond to my concerns about my hair, but she said it didn't "look thin" and I had no bald patches. It doesn't look thin because I had so much hair to begin with, but it's down to about half of what it was before I started the pill. I also hate watching it fall out every time I turn my head. It's embarrassing to find hair everywhere.
Has anyone gone off the pill and gotten her old curls/hair back? If so, how long did it take?
I'm desperate I guess. I don't really want to go off altogether especially if it is unlikely I will be able to get any hair back.
