Women who lose hair while taking birth
control pills usually have an inherited tendency toward hair thinning. If hair
thinning occurs, a woman can consult her doctor about switching to another
birth control pill or another contraceptive method.
When a woman
stops using oral contraceptives, her hair may begin shedding 2 or 3 months
later. This may continue for 6 months and then it usually stops.
