  1. Yasmin BC pill stopped helping acne after 3 years

    I keep hearing about this happening more and more, especially with Spiro, and unfortunately this has happened to me as well every time I took birth control (Yaz) for more than a few months I think our bodies do get used to it and adjust. What helped me is getting on a PCOS diet, exercising, and taking Inositol supplements, but I'm struggling to commit to the diet as it is very hard to follow, and I still breakout in typical hormonal acne on my jaw.
  2. Wet dreams cause my acne, what to do?

    I'm a girl and whenever my testosterone spikes I also get dreams like that, and I always know that I'm going to get some painful bumps in the next few days. It's really sad. Like how are we supposed to even enjoy sex when we end up associating it with acne? Fucked up. Sadly I don't know how much you can do about it. I don't know if abstinence will do any good. I've read on a body building forum that testosterone goes down after orgasm (though it would be soaring RIGHT after) and it's going to a peak a week from then. In that case maybe just masturbate twice a week so it doesn't get a chance to build up? Haven't tried this but kinda had this theory for a while.
  3. Glycolic acid and cystic acne

    If it's hormonal I doubt glycolic acid will do much to prevent it, however, it worked well for my closed comedones and especially the leftover marks from acne.
  4. Struggling with PCOS diet :(

    I don't know why but I feel like this is just super hard. Last year it seemed way easier for me to regulate my fat and sugar intake and eat mostly healthy, months later I struggle just to not overeat on top of already eating unhealthy. PCOS diet, while it may have worked, is very bland and depressing to me. And I'm always starving trying to limit my calorie intake. I think the only thing that's actually made decent difference for me is when I stuck with 30g or so fat a day (very hard now, because it's so little), and maybe 15g of sugar. Of course lots of salmon. Maybe I just got fed up with it. I just don't know what to do. It seems the choices are either being depressed due to having to eat food I don't enjoy or being depressed due to acne. I don't know what to do. Advice?
  5. Loryna (Yaz) Log

    Day 1-28 update (a week late): So I had one large breakout on the bottom on my chin and about 4 medium ones. The topical antibiotics seem to be working for the closed comedones as I have almost none now and hardly any new ones popping up, but I still get inflamed acne. Wondering if it will get any better if I give it another month or two. Who knows. Diet is hard. I can't really stick to it anymore, same with lifestyle, it's all been kind of out of whack. Getting a lot of mood swings making regular things hard to deal with. I'm sure that has to do with hormonal imbalance, or bc. I need to figure out how to get back into healthy lifestyle but I just feel so exhausted and healthy food just makes me sad
  6. Every time I find a cure, acne eventually comes back

    Hey! thanks for the reply were you afraid of the skin pigmentation though? I read that it's rare but you can get it on Mino and it's permanent? That seems scary
