So for about 8 months I've been taking Tri-Sprintec and Tri-Linyah BCP. They are generic versions of OTC. Well, to delay the start of my period, after the sugar pill week, i waited another week to start my new pack of Mononessa. During that week off, I was terrified of being off the pill because I thought it would break me out but it did the exact opposite. My skin was actually starting to look better. I then started Mononessa and my face is back to breaking out all over again.
I want to go off the pill for good now but I have been reading complete horror stories online on how the acne returns after a certain amount of time.
I read about naturally balancing your hormones while going off the pill and I have taken Zinc Supplements for awhile while on BC and now I'm taking Derma Klear Akne Zyme supplements which contain a number of vitamins such as Zinc, Vitamin A, Vitamin B12 and B6 and others but I'm still afraid of all my cystic acne coming back to haunt me.
Anyone have any advice or stories (good or bad) about going off of the pill and what I can do to prevent my bad breakouts from coming back?!
