Today is day one of my pills. I'm hoping that this medication does the trick for me the second time around.
I'm actually taking a generic form of this medication, teva cyproterone. I checked the ingredients and they are practically the same except shape and colour of the pills themselves.
I took this before for oily skin and lots of whiteheads, ages 15-17. It worked wonderfully.
My acne is more cystic now. Not huge, but definitely annoying. I have them on my upper cheeks, at my temples, on my forehead. They seem to "grow" around ovulation and stay noticeable through my period week. They're always in the same place. Right now I have maybe 6 under the skin spots, only a few of which are super noticeable (cheeks, of course... argh!) I have three smaller zits too, jaw line and temples.
I messed with my hormones over the summer with a bcp that wasn't suited for me (ortho tri cyclen lo). I think this is why it has gotten worse lately.
