Anderogens cause hair loss - and this is in the "lowest androgen" category.... so maybe its something else you're taking in addition to this, or maybe it just sped up the sloughing off phase and will even out... low andro ...

I am back with Desogen, well its really the generic form (reclipsen). I took Desogen for 5 years and I loved it, my period was 3 days, no cramps, no headaches, no tiredness, no mood swings, perfect skin. I hope this time works just like last time. Yaz was a night mare, and ortho tri cyclen lo wasn't as bad, but nothing like Desogen.
