Belara Log

24 August 2014 - 11:54 AM

Tonight I'll be taking Belara, an anti-androgen birth control pill, for the first time. My acne is definitely hormonal, so I should notice improvement from Belara, but I am nervous because all of the hormonal treatments I have tried in the past (yasmin, yaz, spiro, metformin) made my hair fall out. My hair is finally starting to thicken again since taking metformin, and the thought of it falling out again scares me. Wish me luck!

Weight Lifting?

12 August 2014 - 08:08 PM

How do you guys feel about weight lifting for health and physical fitness? My boyfriend is really into weight lifting and regularly lifts more than 100 lbs. Can this really be good for your body in the long run? When I have tried lifting heavy weights in the past my skin has acted up. It has gotten oily and broken out. Lifting heavy makes me look nice, but I'm just not sure it's good for me. I'm thinking about trying to use the fitness blender plan for busy people which includes 30 minute workouts that incorporate weight, cardio, and things like pilates and stretching. Do you guys have a favorite workout routine?

So If Yaz, Yasmin, And Spiro All Make My Hair Fall Out, Do You Think I'll Have The...

I know Yaz and Yasmin contain a spiro like ingredient that makes my hair fall out like spiro. I'm thinking about trying Belara which contains the anti-androgenic progestin chlormadinone acetate. Does anyone know if chlormadinone acetate is similar to spiro? Has anyone had any experience on Belara? Anti-androgens clear me completely, but I don't want to lose all my hair.

My Skin Is Causing Me A Lot Of Anxiety

16 July 2014 - 07:08 PM

I just need to vent a bit guys. I don't usually post in this section of the forums, but I'm not sure why since I suffer from an anxiety disorder which is severely exacerbated by my skin issues. Anyways, lately my skin has been breaking out badly and I've started to scar a bit. All my scars right now are very shallow, but I'm having a very "I'm scarred for life, I look ugly, and the world is ending attitude." I have never had to deal with scars before and I feel like my new little ones are pushing my anxiety to the limit. Can you guys please offer me some reassurance or words of wisdom? I don't want to feel like I'm going to be scarred and ugly forever, but right now I can't help but feel that way.
