Hair Loss with Low Androgen birth control pill?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi - my college daughter has been on a low androgen birth control pill from three years now and it seems to work well for her hair. However she has been having lots of break through bleeding so we have to switch her birth control pill. It's still a low androgen but I was wondering if anyone has had hair loss switching birth control pills? She had mono a few months back and lost lots of hair, and she also has low ferritin , therefore, it's been difficult to see what has been causing the hair loss. It's been so upsetting to see her go through this.

Thanks for any info
