In brief: Yes

Birth control pills have been rarely blamed for hair loss, but there are much more common causes for alopecia: stress, low thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism), and heredity, for example.

In brief: Any hormonal change

Any change in your hormone status could contribute to your hair loss but this is not typically a direct effect of the bcp.
