Well this is a late reply lol, but I'm pretty much in the same boat. I didn't have a HUGE break out until summer of 2011 (right after graduating high school). Antibiotics and Acanya helped but when I stopped antibiotics (due to side effects), everything started coming back. I've been considering Yaz or Yasmin since I'm pretty sure my acne problem is hormone related, plus I really wanna get rid of this oily skin and topicals just haven't helped with that at all. Anyway, did you ever get on Yasmin?? I see my gyno tomorrow so I might ask about it!!
Hey! I just made my account on here too,.. Well, been waiting since November of last year to see my dermatologist (my appointment is next Thursday).. My story definitely didn't start as young as yours, acne's only really affected me for 2-3 years now, but I can relate to not wanting to waste time with anymore creams/gels/antibiotics that have already proved ineffective I too have been researching accutane for awhile now and it seems like the only answer unfortunately.. But good luck! Hopefully everything works out for us all ^.^
