So I decided to start a new log in order to keep track on my progress on Yasmin and Spiro. Hopefully someone out there could find something useful here too, but it's mostly for personal records. Comments are welcomed though, especially if you have similar experiences/effects etc
I started taking Yasmin on 20th of August, still continuing. Had an initial cystic breakout on the second month. I was still on Androcur, (another anti-androgen drug) back then, which didn't seem to clear me up completely and had loads of side effects, so I decided to try Spiro instead. So I'm taking 50 mg since 28th of October.
Today I got a little breakout after a whole month of clear skin. Two tiny ones (but really red) on my cheek and one on my forehead. Doesn't seem like anything serious, but it's still disappointing after being clear for a month. Must be due to a very heavy period (actually, one of the heaviest period I ever had, must be because of Spiro).
Tomorrow I'm gonna raise my dose to 75 mg and see if it helps me stay totally clear.
I'm drinking loads of peppermint tea, it helps my stomach which is quite bloated lately (also Spiro's doing?? ), but also eat crappy food... Guilty!
