What is the connection between endometriosis and hair loss?


Is there a possible connection between endometriosis and hair loss? What's the solution to these problems? The doctor prescribed birth control pills, but it made me feel depressed. Now what?

    As far as I know there is no link between endo and hair loss, except that both involve hormones and hormone problems, albeit different kinds of hormones. I'm definitely not an expert, though.
    Have you looked into or heard of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)? That DOES cause hair loss. See http://www.pcosupport.org/medical/whatis.php
    If you've been diagnosed with endo I highly recommend doing a ton of research to learn as much about it as you can. The Endometriosis Association, at http://www.endometriosisassn.org/, is an excellent place to start.
