Thanks for the query

The hair fall is one of the symptoms of PCOD and you have another factor contributing to the hair fall which is high testosterone levels. You are on the right treatment for the PCOD, please continue taking these medications as prescribed.
Hair fall is not related to the Tb you had 2 years back.
Here are my suggestions to you
1. Continue taking your medications
2. Applying topical minoxidil daily to your scalp will help reduce hair fall
3. Have green leafy vegetables and fruits daily
4. If you lead a stressful life, try taking short breaks in between to destress.

I hope I was of help
