Progesterone and Birth Control
I am currently on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo and have been for I believe 5 years now. I have always had naturally thin hair but I recently started noticing it becoming gradually thinner. I am always tired, have bad anxiety, panic attacks, sleepless nights and low libido. When I first started taking Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo I didn't have any of these problems. Now that the years have progressed I am just not realizing I am not myself.
I believe I am deficient in progesterone after doing lots of research. I made a doctors appointment just yesterday with my GP because my OB is insistant on me switching to Yasmin and I refuse. I cannot stop taking BC because I am active. Is it possible to continue on OTC and use a progesterone cream? Please help I prefer not to get of BC.
