Yaz

3 posts in this topic

So I'm on yaz right now almost finished with my second pack and i've not seen any change. If at all my acne has gotten worse. I've been getting acne on my cheeks when it used to just be my chin. Has anyone had any success with yaz, or if not does anyone have any suggestions of a new one to try. This whole acne thing is making me depressed and i don't know how much more i can take. thanks

You have to give any brand enough time to work, a minimum of three months, but i've seen people report that a brand that didn't seem to be helping suddenly started clearing the acne after 6 months, 9 months. It's also very common that acne gets worse before it gets better. Stick with the Yaz for a few more months and then re-evaluate.


Currently - all clear!
