In June of 2018 I decided I was done with birth control pills. I was tired of the side effects, mood swings, and just wanted my body cycles to happen naturally without the synthetic drugs regulating my body. Taking birth control pills is obviously very common for women, and gynecologists prescribe them like candy for patients but don’t always go into the details about the risks of taking them; and rarely about the side effects of stopping them. Well, at least MY doctor didn’t tell me the hell that awaited me a few months after I stopped taking “the pill.”
By September of 2018 my body was wreaking havoc on me as I was no longer taking the pill. My moods were crazy, my face was breaking out terribly with cystic acne, I felt like crap most of the time, and the most devastating side effect was my hair was falling out. I’m not talking about a few extra strands on my pillow or in the shower; I was literally pulling my hair out by the handful. I would be so scared to wash my hair because that’s where I would lose the most. I would cry every time I gathered the tennis ball sized clumps of hair from the shower. It was a very depressing time for me, I felt ugly and didn’t want to leave the house and I was terrified that the hair loss wasn’t going to stop.
When I talked to a dermatologist, she explained to me that the hormonal change from stopping the pill was causing my hair to fall out, it’s called telogen effluvium, and that the hair loss should stop eventually, but I could lose a lot more hair and it wasn’t guaranteed to fully grow back. She suggested I try Nutrafol. Even before my doctor visit I had saw ads for Nutrafol as I was desperately seeking some relief. I didn’t purchase it, because it was so expensive (around $88 a month) and also I wasn’t sure if it was a scam or not. Since the dermatologist backed it up, I was willing to make the investment and give Nutrafol Core for Women Supplements a try.
It took me about 3 months to notice a difference in my hair from using Nutrafol. The balding spots around my hairline started to fill in and I was very hopeful I had found something that would work for me. By 6 months my hair was growing like a weed! The bald spots were almost completely filled in and my hair was growing in even thicker and stronger than before. Washing my hair was no longer a stressful event because the shedding had gone back to normal and I was no longer pulling out clumps of hair as before.
I am still currently using Nutrafol after almost 2 years. My hair grows so fast and is incredibly healthy. Nutrafol has other benefits as well, it has helped with my skin, sleeping and overall well being. The best part is, it is an all natural product with no harsh drugs or chemicals that can cause negative side effects. I swear by Nutrafol and recommend it to all my friends and family. I have posted 3 YouTube videos with more detailed information on Nutrafol in hopes to help others who may be suffering from hair loss.
