These hormones might help women whose hormone levels, because of menopause or other reasons, are low. As with any hormone pill (these are the same as the birth control pill) women over 35 or those that smoke are at risk for blood clots. Use only low-androgen index birth control pills, high-androgen index pills may actually cause hair loss!
Read the page about “are birth control pills causing your hair loss” before you select one. It gives a list of pills and explains in more detail why women who suffer from hair loss want a low androgen birth control pill. Pick your pill carefully! And don’t let insurance companies dictate to you which pills you can use. Buy your birth control online and maybe you can afford to decide which pill is best for you, not which pill your insurance company will pay for!
