I have been on and off the pill for 4 years now, and some of the time my hair is falling out – Literally all over the place… It wasn’t like this 4 years ago.

Can birth control cause hair loss?

One Answer to “Can birth control cause hair loss?”

  1. EllenJ Says:

    Birth control pills can trigger hair loss in women who have a genetic predisposition to hormone related hair loss.

    Some report that they experienced hair loss only after they stopped taking the pill, so from what you’re describing it could be either of those cases.

    You should probably consult your doctor about switching to birth control pills with low levels of hormones or to some other form of birth control.
