Simple solution, I was recently pregnant...Just take the prenatals withOUT iron. Or if you prefer, the high biotin multi-vitamin that supports weight loss and blood sugar stability, it's what I took when I was pregnant...my hair and nails grew like crazy and if I could still afford them, I never would have stopped taking them. The best price I could google (GlucoBalance Probiologics) tonight was around $42 for 2 bottles of 90 capsules (1 month supply), which included shipping.
This is a multi-vitamin that contains 3000mcg of Biotin and you have to swallow 3-6 pills per day rather than 1.
There's a lot of good help that won't hurt your liver in Traditional Chinese Medicine which restored my health when I was given a death sentence due to severe lung damage. I now have a near normal life expectancy and fewer limitations. If you were open to herbs or Naturopathy, you might find some different approaches in those paradigms. It simply doesn't have to be all/nothing, hurt your liver/have nice hair, in fact you could benefit your liver and have nicer hair (and nails) then ever.
A little research might yield a doctor you want to see rather than want to avoid. I can't say I've fired many docs in my life (maybe 5-6 out of dozens) but I can say that the ones I have now are stellar and I wouldn't hesitate to call or see them because they have earned my confidence over time.
Good luck and let us know how it's going.
