Birth Control pills can cause hair loss. Generally, it takes about 3 months for your body to adjust to the new influx of hormones. Often, your estrogen/progestin levels will even out, hair loss will stop, and all will be fine. However, there are birth control pills that are "notorious" causing hair loss (Alesse, ortho tri-cylen lo, estrostep...) because they either have low estrogenic activity or high androgenic activity- in that case, if your hair is continually affected, it would be certainly advisable to talk to your Ob-Gyn about different BC options.

Buy Options, not Ooptions?

Options provide very attractive ways to make money very quickly. However, there is a reason that even the best options traders say "10 up, 2 down" is the motto. This means that if you trade options all 12 months of the year, you will only have 2 months in which you are positive on your trades. However, those two months should be so good that they eat the rest of your losses. Naked options trades are only good for those with expendable income and a tight stomach. Otherwise, options are better used as hedges on trades made in the primary securities market.
