Does camilla cause hair loss?

Hello, I started to take camilla last fall and quit after a few months. I thought that my hair started to thin. When I asked anyone what they thought they all said it was in my head. Now months later people are recommending that I invest in a wig. My hair has been falling out since last fall. My doctors do not have any advice for me except Rogaine, which hasn't helped yet. Just wondering if anybody out there has any advice or knowledge on the side effect of this drug? Is Camilla the cause of my hair loss? How long will this last? Jessica

my hair loss

My hairdresser said that my hair would start to fall out after my baby was born. I lost a lot of hair after my first son and is now happening with my second who is 4 months now. I have been taking Camila for 2 months and because of my hairdresser's comment, I always thought the hair loss was a post-partem thing, not related to the pill. (Hair went back to normal eventually, even got thick with the second pregnancy.)

I have noticed severe hair loss myself. I have been taking the pill for 5 months. I wish someone would reply to this and let me know if this is a side effect from taking Camila. thanks!

Camilla and Hair Loss

I believe that Camilla causes hair loss. I was on Camilla for about 4 months and got off of it last week because I started getting acne (I'm over 30 and have never had it) and also because I noticed some hair loss. Acne got my attention real fast, but the hair loss wasn't as noticeable, because I have long hair and some hair loss is normal. But now that I'm paying attention to other possible side effects, I'm noticing that I am still losing hair like crazy - by handfuls every day! It's crazy.

I took Camilla for 5 weeks and noticed my hair falling out in shower
I stopped taking it about 3 weeks ago and some hair still falls out. I'm hoping this will stop soon in a month or so or at least get better. I believe it was Camilla because it was the only new med I was taking.

Hair loss and Camila

I had been on Camila for years as a hormone booster due to my irregular periods. My hair was already shedding somewhat as a side effect from my weight loss surgery in early 2016. However I stopped taking Camila during the summer of 2017 and 4-6 weeks after stopping it my hair starting falling out by the handfuls. Literally. I’m scared every time I shower to see the amount that has collected in the hair trap. I need someone who has been through this to please reassure me my hair will grow back. It’s been falling out terribly for 5 months now. I have bald spots everywhere. Someone please “shed” some light on this subject. Thank you in advance.
