Significant Hair Loss

by Chelsey

Hello! I am 25 years old. Two years ago I stopped taking my birth control. I had been on birth control since age 16 for ovarian cysts. Once I stopped taking the birth control, my hair starting falling out at an alarming rate. I have never had skin problems, but when I got off the birth control, I could not keep my face clear. I have been on micronized progesterone cream for about 4 months now. At first, I was only doing one pump(30mg) a day, but now I am doing two pumps a day (60mg), and I am still losing my hair. I am also taking a strong multivitamin, adrenal cortex fractions, suntheanine, 30mg of zinc per day, and magnesium. Should I increase my dosage of progesterone cream? Is vanginally administered progesterone cream more effective? These past two years have been very hard. I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thank you!
