She is 24.
She does take birth control, this is a refill.I am not sure what the name is, she is a student in Chicago and I am asking for her
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The one she needs is Azurette and they gave her the genetic for this.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr David, Doctor replied 6 months ago

if this is a refill, then she should be fine

most likely it is not the birth control pill causing her to loose her hair

she should see her doctor and do more testing of her iron, thyroid levels, vitamin D, ferritin, B12 levels and complete blood tests to check for causes for hair loss.

it is normal for all of use to loose some of our hair and regrow new hair

generic birth control pills shouldn't be causing her hair loss

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
