Tulip_83... I left you a post.. please reply....
So I went to see my endocronologist today. She went through my history, went through all the blood work and said that I have absolutly nothing and that I am healthy as a rock. My male hormones are on the low end of normal, so they are very low..no way it will cause hair loss. I have normal thyroid and normal hormones. I do NOT have PCOS(polycystic ovarian syndrom). She said that it is a reaction from stopping the Dianette(Diane 35) and that most likely this will stop soon . She said I went trough the worst already .. so to just hang on. She does not want to put me on anything, what is the point? She said going back on The pill will just make it happen again when I stop and that if she gives me any anti-androgen drugs will not help me either because the minute I will stop , the hair will fall again, so you don't want to give your body any meds if you really don't need it. She said that usually when you lose hair, it takes 6 months for the cycle to start again from the time that you lose your hair, so regrowth should happen at about 6 months of going through this, although I can see regrowth already.. it's just a matter of it staying on my head...
I told her that I thought I had PCOs because I tend to break out sometimes.. I don't have acne.. just some stupid pimples here and there and that is why stupid me took the Dianette (Diane 35).. but she said that there is no way I have PCOS especially since I am very thin , I have no cysts in the ovaries, no facial hair and no signs whatsoever of any PCOS.. I wonder if there is a relationship of being thin and losing your hair from the Dianette. The other specialist I saw said that it probably happened because I am thin and that hair does not like skinny people... but hey.. I had beautiful hair before the Dianette and I was skinny, so it doesn't make sense.. but who knows..
She said to hang in there... it will get better. So I am hanging in there but losing my mind. She also said it is a good idea to change shampoo every three months so I went and bought a new shampoo although I don't think it will make a difference. Seriously, I think the past two weeks have been worse. I lost more hair then usual. Oh.. when will this nightmare stop???? She said I don't have male pattern baldness or AGA, so at least that's good. I guess it's a waiting game here. It is 22 weeks for me at the end of the week. Damn it, Just stop already then I will be so happy!!
Anne, how are you doing? I guess this will be a bad year from now, but at least it will be over soon and one day soon we will get our hair back. Such a high price to pay for taking a stupid birth control pill... If I only knew..Tulip_83... Please please answer my post,
