About this blog

So I started Ocella around 2 months ago, and noticed that my skin was breaking out a lot more than usual... so of course I quit mid pack of month 3. But the past few weeks that I have been off of it, my skin has gotten even worse. So in a last ditch attempt, I am going to start Ocella again- I have no idea how it is going to affect my skin but I thought I would share it here...

Month 1 Week 2

My skin is worse... I wake up with around 2 cysts every day and they are leaving behind brutal scarring that can't be covered with makeup. I have also noticed smaller closed comedones popping up everywhere. It doesn't help that I am so stressed about this. I am really unsure of what to do...

I am scared that my hormones have been permanently fucked from stopping mid pack and taking a break. I see my dermatologist in 6 weeks...which is a lot of time for things to either improve or worsen. I feel like it might head for the latter though. 

I have no self confidence. Anyone gone through something similar?





Month 1 Week 1

I just finished the first week... 

OMG it's been horrendous! I woke up every day with 2-3 new spots, some were really quite nasty while others weren't. I've been getting a lot of whiteheads on my forehead and a few cysts around my cheek. I feel like they come to a head farely quickly, but they leave behind raised scars. This is super confusing to me because it seems like I am breaking out more than I was originally on the pill. It's really difficult for me to think that I'm going to have to be on this for 3 whole months. I'm getting extremely discouraged as my skin has never been this bad. 

I start week 2 today;  I'm not expecting to see much improvement as these breakouts show no sign of clearing. 





Day 2

Just thought I'd let you know what my skin looks like right now before I start documenting my progress:
