Hair Loss in Women

Birth control pills (which contain hormones) and hormone replacement therapy can cause hair loss. The same is true for other types of hormone drugs, as well as a variety of hormone conditions.

Call your doctor's office for advice.

Switching to a different type of pill or different form of birth control may allow your hair to grow back normally.
