My story is very similar to yours. I was on BC pills for 3 years. I was clear before them (would get a pimple here and there) and on them I rarely got a pimple. In July of this year I stopped taking them because I hated the way I felt on them.
Anyway, my face in August went OUT OF CONTROL. I'm talking big cyst on my jawline, cheeks, tons of whiteheads, ect ect. I came across this website after long nights of researching online and crying.
I started the regimen on September 6. So I am about 7.5 weeks into it. I am almost clear! I went from 50 pimples to about 5 right now. (It wasn't easy! Because you purge and have dry skin ect ect) but the end result is awesome.
My skin is not perfect yet (have lots of scarring) but it's working!
Good luck! Try the regimen! And remember.... Give it 3 months

Developed adult cystic acne out of the blue at the age of 26.
Did the acne.org regimen religiously for 1 year. (It cleared my skin 60% and kept my acne "manageable")
Finally went to the derm July of 2014 and this is my regimen:
doxycycline 100mg twice day
Finacea 15% gel in the morning
Clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide at night.
Hope this works!!!!!
Update October 2014:
Finacea in the morning
Clindamycin and BP at night
