All I know is that I was very aware of my routines and keeping an eye out for the side effect of birth control. As soon as it became obvious to me that something was not right (beyond the expected things like nausea), I informed my doctor. In the space of a year, I was put on three different pills, all with different effects.
As far as I'm concerned, Microgynon made my hair grow faster which stopped as soon as I came off it. Yasmin (YAZ) has made my hair grow slower. Why did Cilest cause so much dryness that the other two did not?
Just to go back to ivnn post, I can believe this. I'm south Asian and I'd say every south Asian woman I know who has had an excess hair problem before OCP has found either an increase or decrease depending on which they take.
