  1. Hi, I have a similar cycle. When I'm not on any birth control I breakout at ovulation and a little until period. Now I'm on Spiro (started at 25mg/day, on 50 mg/day for 2 months) and NuvaRing birth control. Seems to be helping, but breaking out at period. I can't figure out if it's due to the week without the ring or what. So far, Spiro is helping, but... not clear.
  2. I am having the best success in years with clearing my hormonal acne with Rx from my docs. I am now on Spirinolactone 50mg/day and the Nuvaring for birth control. So far (3-4 months in), everything is great, skin not perfect, but getting there fast. Birth control working great too, no negatives there. I also have an Rx for Clindamycin pledgets (individual packets antibiotic wipes), which I mostly use if I'm having a breakout, or after workouts, etc on my back, neck and jawline. Just wanted to share.
