Diane 35 hair loss

I stopped taking Diane 35 5 months ago. 2 months ago my hair started shedding like crazy and my skin broke out. I am really stressed by the amount of hair I have been loosing and my skin. I wanted a break from the pill as want to try for baby in 6 months but seriously thinking of going back on. Is the hair loss related? Please help!

Hello,
Every contraceptive can cause side effects. Not all women experience side effects. Hair loss may be experienced by few women using Diane 35. Every person has some hair loss. Hair loss of about 50-100 per day is normal. The common causes  of hair loss:
1)Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder also known as "spot baldness" that can result in hair loss ranging from just one location. Traction alopecia - with ponytails or cornrows, pulling on hair with excessive force.
2) Temporary loss of hair can occur in areas where sebaceous cysts are present.
3) Traumas such as chemotherapy, childbirth, major surgery, poisoning, and severe stress may cause a hair loss condition known as telogen effluvium.
4) Iron deficiency
5) Mycotic infections can cause massive hair loss.
6) Hypothyroidism can cause hair loss, typically frontal, and is particularly associated with thinning of the outer third of the eyebrows.
7) Hyperthyroidism can also cause hair loss It would be best to consult a skin specialist for your symptoms to find out the cause of your complaints. Increase the intake of proteins in your diet, take a multi vitamin and zinc supplements. Adequate sleep and hydration are also important. Use a mild shampoo and conditioner. You might need to get investigated further maybe to establish a cause of the hair loss - hormone levels, thyroid function tests, any skin disease etc. This would help in establishing a diagnosis and then planning further management of your symptoms. If your pill is causing it you may need an alternative method of contraception.
Keep me posted. Hope this helps.
Good luck and regards!
