ACNE meds

Hi Doc,

I had been taking Diane35 for about 2years when i noticed my hair was started to fall out alot. I went to my GP and she gave me Yasmin but the hairloss continued. I recently read that Yasmin has a side effect of hairloss. The main reason i am on these pills is for maintaining an acne free skin. I would like to stop the pills and go on a completely hormone free alternative. when Stopping the yasmin will my hair regrow? Are there other pills with no hair loss side effects? is there another alternative to using B/control for ACNE?

Jaz, depending on the cause of your acne there may be a variety of options. If your acne is the result of hormone imbalance, you will probably see the best results when staying on a contraceptive - Speak to your doctor about a very light oral contraceptive.
