Hi ladies! About 4 months ago I went off birth control (not TTC, just thought it’d be a good time to give my body a rest, and since I know we’ll TTC within the next…uh…5 years?…thought it’d be a good time) and since then my hair has been falling out in virtual clumps. It’s SUCH a huge bummer, especially because I have thin hair to begin with.
I’ve been reading up on forums that this happens to a lot of people as you go from 100 to zero with fake hormones. I’m not interested in going back on birth control (and I hear it doesn’t STOP the hair loss if you’re in a current “shed” cycle anyway) but I was wondering if any of you went through the same thing and if you did, if you did anything about it.
I have horribly thin hair to begin with so I don’t have a lot to spare. Just wondering if any of you take/took any vitamins or have any regimines you like for hair growth, maintainence, or if you went through this, WHEN THE HAIR LOSS STOPS!?!?! I hope it’s before I go completely bald! 🙁
