Birth Control - Triodene ED

I' ve been on Triodene ED for almost 2 months now. I think I am still adjusting to it as I am getting light bleed through bleeding in between cycles. Previously I was on Yasmin for over 5 years - which stopped working, so my gynea recommended Triodene. When the Yasmin stopped working, I obviously experienced a hormone imbalance, which resulted in hair loss.

I have three questions:
1) What kind of birth control is Triodene, as I know it is a different kind with regards to Yasmin? What exactly does it do?

2) Will Triodene balance my hormones like Yasmin used to do?

3) Has there been any proof that Triodene causes hair loss? Or in fact, can birth control pills cause hair loss - in general?

Dear Anonymous
Any birth control or pregnancy ( ie hormone fluctuations) can cause hair loss. Triodene is a triphasic tablet, meaning that in the course of the packet, the hormone levels fluctuate to mimic normal hormone fluctuations in your body. All contraceptive tablets however prevent ovulation.
