I was on Cerazette (progesterone only mini pill) for about a year. It was incredible- made me lose weight (not that I'm heavy but it was a bonus!), stabilised moods, gave me energy, boosted libido - genuinely, was great to be on.
BUT, it gave me cystic acne so horrible I considered Roaccutane and met with two dermatologists to discuss it.
Only about a month ago did I realise that the pill itself was what gave me acne so painful and horrible, I'd never had perfect skin but the pill was just another level.
So what I'm asking is: is there another mini pill to take that would give me all of the benefits that Cerazette did, without the acne?
Or is it the estrogen in the combined pill that controls hormonal acne?
Thanks so much!
