I got similar results from taking yaz and anti-DHT supplements. Id recommend people try that instead the risks are much lower than anything associated with accutane.
btw yes your skin does look good but if your acne is hormonal it will eventually come back.
Hi there, haha thanks for the confidence boost
I have a similar question...My acne was controlled with Yaz for about 4 yrs then I stopped taking it last spring because I thought I had outgrown my acne (I was 29). I apparently had not and all hell broke loose. I had horrendous breakouts, started back on Yaz but still couldn't get my skin under control with topicals, antibiotics or Yaz. The body acne was really bad. So I am now on Accutane at 30. ( My insurance does not cover birth control so I am spending a ton of money out of pocket for it each month and would love to stop taking it but I am scared my skin will flip out again. I have been on Accutane for almost 9 weeks now. Did you have any flare up of your acne when you stopped your birth control?
I really want to stop birth control pills, im in month 5 i have a few months to go, if i stop now will i break out
For me I could tell that yaz was actually making my skin worse, Birth Control is free in the UK and is of course a handy easy way to stop pregnancy, so if it wasn't making my skin worse I would have maybe continued on it throughout my accutane course and possibly beyond.
I appreciate the risks of accutane and no one takes this on lightly, however the fact for me was that hormone pills made me worse, my body was telling me to stop putting fake hormones into my body, and therefore I stopped taking them, and have continued for 1 year post accutane without pumping any hormones into my body at all..... and have never felt better.
I believe the years spent taking cocktails of ridiculous amounts of different hormone pills, creams, antibiotics, and drugs is just as bad, if not worse for the body as a short course of this controversial drug, meaning you can leave that all behind and let your body settle into a balance once again.
Just my opinion
