Topics I've Started

Zovia 1/35

14 January 2014 - 05:20 PM

Just visited planned parenthood today. I've been on desogen for awhile and it has helped dramatically but I still break out. I figured I'd give demulen/zovia a try. Anyone here take it and had success with their skin?

Thinking Of Switching From Apri To Ortho Cyclen?

26 December 2013 - 08:03 PM

The first bcp I've ever tried for my acne was ortho novum but the type of progestin in it didn't do anything for my skin. So my doc switched me to desogen because she raved about the type of progestin in it being very low in androgen potency. So I started and I've been on it for about six months. I take the generic for desogen which is apri. My skin has cleared quite a bit but its still not 100%. My face is still red and a little oily, and the whiteheads won't go away. I also get small red bumps here and there that leave scars. I'm pretty frustrated. I was thinking of going back to my doc and asking for ortho cyclen because norgestimate seems to be another low androgenic progestin. I feel like i havent found the perfect pill yet. Anyone have experience with this pill? How do you like it for acne? Thanks in advance

Anyone On Desogen?

Just switched from necon 135 to desogen and I was wondering if anyone here is on it. Please go ahead and share your experiences! I switched because I hear desogen is great for skin.

Necon Causing Yeast Infection

31 May 2013 - 04:14 AM

Im really frustrated. Im in the middle of my fifth pack of necon 1/35 and ive been getting constant yeast infections. And i dont want to stop this pill because it cleared my skin..i dont know if i should switch to a different higher dose pill with a different progestin in it or switch to a low dose pill because the amount of estrogen in necon is high. I dont know if the yeast is being caused by the progestin in necon or just the estrogen. Anyone have any ideas?
