Okay, so I went on TriNessa (a generic version of ortho-tri-cylen) about 5 months ago, it cleared up my mild hormonal cysts right away and I continued using it without any problems and hardly any breakouts. I went out of town near the end of one of my packs, and ended up forgetting to call in a scrip for my new pack before I left. When I realized what I had done, I called to try and get my scrip filled out of town, only to find out I had no refills yet. Long story short, it was about 5-6 days without BC before I ended up getting my new pack, so I decided I would just stay off that month and continue to take it the Sunday after my next period started.
Well, my period still came like clock-work even though I had been off for a whole month, and I hardly had ANY breakouts during the month off. Started back up the Sunday after my cycle and I am now 3 weeks into the pack and I am starting to spot lightly & break out again n my hormonal cysts ( I currently have one which is big and another right near it that I can feel forming) Although this may seem petty to all of you considering its only 2 breakouts, it's extremely frustrating especially since I had gone what felt like forever without breaking out.
My question is, is this just my hormones leveling themselves out since I quit for that month? I did not have any spotting when I initially started taking B/C. How long should I expect this to last? Should I contact my doctor if it gets any worse? Any input is welcome and appreciated. Thank you guys in advance!
