I have been using the generic version of Micronor for about a year now. Several months ago I switched to the name brand. I have noticed some hair loss right at the top of my forehead, just where my hairline starts. I have heard that this could be a result of oral contraceptive use, although I have been taking birth control pills for many years now. If it could be a result of this, will it cease on its own or do I need to stop taking this pill?
Although hair loss is not a known/stated side effect of Ortho Micronor, it could possible. Please see your doctor if it is excessive and bothersome.
