How long does hair loss due to coming off the contraceptive pill last?

pill blister packName: Claire

Question: How long does hair loss due to coming off the contraceptive pill last?

Answer: This type of hair loss usually occurs two months after stopping the pill. The shedding is quite profuse and can last on average for three weeks. The shedding is temporary and it often corrects itself, although it usually takes around three to six months for hair growth to recover. Should the hair loss last longer than three months, then it is best to see a professional. There may be other factors that are perpetuating your condition such as female pattern hair loss. This type of hair loss in women will require treatment with minoxidil (the only proven hair loss medication available to women) and a hair loss specialist would be able to recommend your ideal formulation and the optimum daily dosage.
