Having hair fall problem. Taking Althea oral contraceptive pill. Will it lead to hair fall?

Hi, i will just ask if Althea oral contraceptive pill may cause hair fall? Currently, I m facing hair fall issue whenever I comb my hair after bathing. It runs like 40-80 strands per day and I worry a lot because I might get bald. Would you please answer if it s okay for me to use Althea pills when in fact i suffer hair fall these days? Help! thanks!
