To be really worried about my hair loss (damn you, Cerazette).

I've been on cerazette for 2 years. My hair is getting thinner and thinner and I don't know what to do. I'm starting to panic a bit, cos I've read that this can worsen even more after coming off it. And the rage, is getting worse. The number of times I've almost hit my boss , and to be honest if this had happened, I wouldn't feel any remorse - I couldn't care less about insulting people or saying mean things. This is not me at all. I used to be/am a lovely person. I hate the way I am at the moment.
On the other hand, the rage does have its benefits, I have no quarms about standing up for myself , which I've always had a problem doing.
Really concerned about my hair though. I'm seeing the doc tomorrow and thinking about the patch.
The only reason cerazette has been a blessing is that I haven't had a period in 2 years. (The pain used to make me pass out).
Could someone give me some positive advice? X

That's interesting as I had a Mirena fitted in March and I also think it's causing some hair thinning. However, it also coincided with stopping breastfeeding DC2 and I also experienced hairloss after I stopped breastfeeding DC1, so it's hard to say really. Are there any other factors that the hairloss could be attributed to?

It does sound like something is not quite right. I really want the Mirena to work for a number of other reasons so I completely understand the frustration of the side effects when you think you've found a perfect, period free solution contraception wise. Good luck with the Dr.

Cerazette was awful for me. I had hair loss, terrible teenage-esque skin (I was 29 ffs!) and my mood swings were beyond hideous. My weight ballooned as well. I moved to Yasmin and I was back to normal within a month.

Time to try something else maybe!

What what what what? Cerazette causes hair loss?! I've been on it for a couple of years and more and more I've noticed my hair is thinning! I didn't realise it was the pill! Wow. Ok. Good to know. Does anyone know if other mini pills do the same?
