Has Anyone Else Had A Blood Clot From Bcp?

16 November 2012 - 04:23 PM

Hi there =)
Two years ago I was on BCP and it cleared up my acne wonderfully. I was on a combo of spiro and bcp and using epiduo and finacea gel. I have hormonal nodule cystic acne in my cheeks and jaw area.

Unfortunately, I had a blood clot in my right subclavian vein and I had to be put off of BCP. (I don't smoke, and I regularly exercise) So, Now, my acne has came back with a vengeance  I've been on everything but accutane.( they do not want me on accutane due to medical reasons) I was wondering, if there are any other ladies who have been on BCP but had to get off of it and what are you taking now? I don't know if I should go back on spiro, but I'm already on so many medications as it is. I have also taken everything, doxycycline, tetracycline, bactrim, and ect..
Any advice will help =) thankyou!

I Jinx My Acne.

My acne will be doing great, hardly any break outs. So, if I even say "hm, my skin is looking great" slowly but surely acne will come back and i'll get three nodules and a cyst that day. that's sad! Shall I forever be negative about the way my skin looks so I won't jinx my good results? lol just kidding. but it really happens every single time. =( anyone else have this odd issue?
