So ever since I accidentally forgot my pack of Yaz when I went on a trip 9 months ago, and then started a new pack 2 weeks late (mid-cycle) my skin has been going crazy. I went on and off BC several times since then and it's only gotten a lot worse. I went from totally clear to breaking out all month long, every other day or so. I decided to go on birth control once again, and this time I will stick with it. Today I'm starting my third pack of Yaz - this time a generic Yaz - Loryna, and I'm going to document everything in here. It is possible I might add Spiro to this log within a couple of months, since I'm considering going on it.
The situation right now is pretty bad. It's the first day of the new cycle, and I have 4 active breakouts, a few bumps that are no longer inflamed but are still lingering, and a ton of acne marks. Overall just during the 4 placebo pills I got 7 deep painful bumps on my face. My shoulders, however, are not as bad as last month (2 inflamed bumps and smaller than usual so far). Let's see what's next.
