Sprintec for high testosterone?

Hi. I am 18 years old, and have been having issues with hair loss. It all began about 2 years ago when I initially switched up my diet and lost weight quite rapidly. I lost my period for about 6 months and my hair shed. I had blood work done then, and no irregularities were present. My hair loss eventually subsidized (although my hair never fully grew back), and my period returned. However, in June I missed my period, and my hair loss returned. I got bloodwork done, and my endocrinologist diagnosed me with having high testosterone levels. Everything else appeared regular. She prescribed me sprintec 28 day tablets. I am writing this post because I am a bit spooked by everything I have read on the internet about this birth control. I am terrified of gaining weight, especially because I believe my higher levels of T have caused me to recently. Also, my biggest concern is my hair. My endo told me that this should help my hair loss. Is that true? If someone could address my concerns that would be great. Thank you!
