No problem :)


In Topic: Where Is My Log?

05 April 2015 - 05:46 AM

Hi, I'm not sure who to ask this to. But in 2010 I started the Regimen and kept a very thorough detailed log/personal post about my battle with acne. I came back here to find it and show it to a friend and it seems to be gone... I realize it was a long time ago but that log was my support through the process of becoming acne-free, so I hope I can find it again.

 

Any admins know where it went? It was under this name, Sweetsleep. Thanks...

Is this it? 


In Topic: Microgynin - Does It Help?

I don't want to try and worry you, but my skin was awful on Microgynon. I went back and saw a different doctor, and he said I should never have been put on it with my skin problems as it is known to just make it worse. I'm now on Cilest and this seems to be a lot better.

 

Good to here someone's experience on it :) Sorry it didn't work for you but that's great that cilest seems to be going better! Hope it continues well for you

 

So far I have no real change in my skin on microgynon - definitely not any worse though so that's great. If anything, it's a little more under control, but it's still early days so it's hard to tell. Remaining hopeful.

I really think it depends on each individual.

You mean Microgynon?

I've just started this pill too! I'm on my first week. I was originally supposed to start Diane but my endo suggested  this one would be a better one to start on as it has a lower risk of clotting (apparently). Can I ask, why did your dr. take you off dianette?

Sorry I can't tell if / how it helps with acne because I've also only just started. But so far, so good. No issues / side effects at all.

My doctor says it's helped a lot of her patients with skin problems but it's all about trial and error and finding which pill works best for you.

Anyway, hopefully this pill works well for both of us!

Mod comment - I'm fine with leaving this topic in this forum, but thought I'd suggest you check out the hormonal acne forum too. There's usually a few spiro threads there.

 

I haven't tried spiro but it's on my list of things to still try if other things don't work for my acne / oily skin. In my experience though, my doctors have been reluctant to prescribe spiro when I've asked about it in the past. When I've mentioned it they haven't really been open to the idea and wanted me to exhaust other options (like trying different birth control pills) first and then maybe spiro could be something to consider. But that's just my experience. I know there have been people around here who haven't had issues getting sprio.

 

 

Hopefully someone else can help you out a bit more!
