In Topic: Has Anyone Started Spiro After Getting Off Bcp And How Long Till You Cleared Up?

It really depends on a lot of things like type of bcp and dose of spiro.

It does look different. It almost looks like irritation. Maybe try washing your face with something else? African black soap has shea in it which can cause acne.

Some people find the amount of anti-androgen in yasmin is not enough to keep the clear completely. These people usually benefit from adding another anti-androgen like spiro to the mix.

I usually don't respond to threads like this because, although I can totally sympathize with them, I sometimes don't know what to say. Like you I struggle with the negative mental effects that acne can cause. I'm prone to anxiety and when my acne gets bad I get panic attacks. Sometimes I feel like I want to die because I feel so awful. I'm now taking accutane for the second time (I'm on month 4) and it's working again. Sometimes I still have bad days (and you will too), but we both have to remain hopeful. I hope your course goes well, and if you have any accutane questions feel free to ask me since I've already been through this once before.

Best of luck on your 4th month! I'm starting my second month tomorrow :) I love having all of these people going through the same things as I am, it makes this process easier! 

Thanks and good luck to you on your second month! I wish I had taken Amnesteem earlier instead of Zenatane. I really do feel like it is a better generic. I'm also noticing much more improvement on it.
