I'm not sure if this is true, but do all hormonal birth control methods have a risk of hair loss as a side effect?
I have experienced quite a bit with the use of depo, and now that it's running its course, I would prefer not to lose any more. I've been prescribed ortho tri cyclen and I'd just like to know whether i should take it, or wuss out and take diane 35...
i'm confused, why would you be "wussing out" if you took diane 35?
anyway. it's a possibility with all hormonal birth control, yes, but different ones have different effects on different people.
i was convinced i was losing hair when i was on alesse, so i switched to another low-dose pill, mircette, which is working nicely.
so yeah i would try the new pill.

Diane 35 is a birth control pill I believe. You should talk to your doctor about the differences. It wouldnt be wussing out to take Diane 35 instead of otho tri cyclen since they are both the pill.
