Some background on my acne struggle: I got my first breakout In 8th grade and my acne has gotten progressively worse since then. Freshman/sophmore year my gynecologist told me I had ovarian cysts so I was put on Loestrin birth control and it did nothing for my acne. Junior year I had mild acne cysts forming( mostly just small pimples and blackheads on my forehead and body) and by then end of senior year I had horrible full blown cysts on my cheeks and forehead along with chest/back acne. I had tried every topical cream and prescription pill to no avail throughout highschool so I finally made the choice to go on accutane summer of 2012. Though the side effects of extremely chapped lips sucked, it Worked amazing while on it but sadly the cysts returned shortly after my treatment.
I was on Lo Loestrin for the past 6 months and my acne is the worst it's ever been. My confidence is at an all time low so I decided to try beyaz after hearing good things. I recently switched from lo Loestrin to Beyaz a week ago and am experiencing a major increase in my jawline/cheek/ forehead acne. I'm only about a week into it so I'm hoping it's just initial breakout or residual from before but this is pretty much my last hope. We will see how this goes but my gyno said that the results you see at the month mark are pretty much what you'll get.
Has anyone had an experience similar to mine with beyaz? Has it helped with your cystic acne? I'm hoping for the best and trying to stay positive!
