Hair Not Growing

Patient

Q: Hello, My name is Sarah and i noticed that it has been 6 months and my hair on my head hasnt grown a centimeter. I am starting to get worried because for fun I cut my hair in May short. And nothing really happend by September, I cut my hair 2 months ago a little just to see if it would stimulate growth (thats what i was always told) and I can still see the perfect cut lines...and its been 2 months. I am someone who would grow her hair very fast and this is frustrating. I was wondering what could cause my hair to stop growing. Could birth control be the cause? (i switched my birth control around the same time i noticed my hair isnt growing) or the way im eating because Ive been eating fine. And no, I do not believe it is stress either because Ive been taking relaxation classes to manage stress but I do not believe I am stressed anyways.
