Experience

I had been on Yasmin for years but when I went for a check-up the doctor told me I was to move to Lucette which was supposedly the same. About 6 months after I started taking it I noticed by hair was not growing to it’s full length and I had some hair loss. I was slightly anaemic and borderline overactive thyroid so put it down to those. Fast forward four years and those issues are resolved, the only other change I can put my hair loss down to was starting to use Lucette. I did have some hair loss before I started taking Yasmin, but that seemed to have approved as I was taking that. I’ve since stopped taking the pill altogether, but thinking about going back on Yasmin to see if that improves my hair.
