I am on my second pack & second week of Ortho-Tri-Cyclen BC (brand name, not generic). Hm, well...the first month I seemed to do okay (not great, but not any worse or any better)--however, this could be b/c I was already on a different type of BC (Lutera) and it allowed for an easier transition, perhaps? Anyways, this second month...is either the same or worse. I have big cysts along my jawline, on my chin, some on my cheeks, and on the sides of my forehead. I know everyone says to give it a full 3 months, which I intend to do...I just wanted to hear if anyone had any personal stories regarding this BC. Did it take you a full 3 months to even notice anything good was happening? 6? I just want to know if I do see any positive effects from this pill, roughly when will it happen.
Also, I'm pretty sure I have PCOS, and I am getting tested for it this week. If that's the case, I'm maybe going to ask for Spiro.
P.S. I'm also thinking about creating a log for my experience on this BC (maybe pictures included?), would anyone be interested in this? I've been searching and have found NO consistent logs with this BC. If no one answers yay or nay, I may just do it for my own progress anyways.
In the same vein, does anyone know of any logs with pictures?
