Question by  Chandon1313 (32)

Can you experience hair loss due to Yaz?

I took Yaz for 6 months and also lost some hair.

Yes, you could. It is common to have hair loss from about any form of birth control. If this bothers you, you should speak with your doctor and see if there is a different kind you can switch to.

As with any birth control Yaz changes the balance of your hormones. If you are sensitive to these imbalances it can cause hair loss,excess hair growth,& acne.

i dont think hair loss is a side affect of any birth control, nor is 6 months long enough to cause that noticeable of a change. however if you have been more stressed out than usual then that could surely cause spme hair loss along with other side affects. i would call your doctor and ask him.

This is a possible side effect, but it is unlikely to be a sign of a more serious condition. Still, you should talk to your doctor, as he might be able to adjust your dose.

Yes, along with some other very seriouse health conditions. If you are still taking Yaz you should talk to your doctor about quiting as soon as posible.

A better place to find out information would be the Yaz website. They should have a list of side-effects.
