Happy Me

Its been about 6 days since my last entry. took a few days to clear the small breakout I had then. as of now, no new pimples. My skin is completely clear. Even the usual small jawline bumps have gone away. If I didnt have red spots from old acne, I could seriously go outside with NO MAKEUP. I am happy. Will definitely beg the doc to let me continue on this. Have to do potassium tests soon and I hope they come out normal.

Not exactly perfect

So Ive been on Spiro now for almost a month. Noticed a huge difference at first. Last week I had a small breakout on my cheek, and now another pimple just under the ones that are healing. Still overall my skin looks better. Less number of pimples but still have a few. Ive read alot of other people on here said it may not fully kick in for a few months. So I guess Ill have to be patient. But still pretty happy.

Day 15 or so

Finished my round of antibiotics.. Dont know if that is contributing to a small breakout on cheek or not or if its my messed up cycle. Not a terrible breakout though. Still pretty happy with the results so far. Im hoping to see a total clear up when not on my period. I know that with all these changes Im going to have to be patient. Still feeling pretty groggy. I guess thats about the worst side effect. skin is feeling a little oily. But Im not sure if Im just noticing it more now due

Day 10

So after my doctor visit its been concluded that my body is just reacting to a lot of change. I changed my BC and also added Spiro. I did finally start my period and I guess the body does take some time to react because Yaz has a different cycle than my last pill. My doc didnt like the frequent urination thing so she put me on an antibiotic just in case I was developing a UTI. I still feel pretty groggy in the morning. Im taking my spiro at lunch so maybe Ill try to take it in the morning

Day 7

Last few days have been a little rough. Continued fatigue and frequent urination. Drinking lots of H2O like its going out of style. Was kinda hoping that the frequent urination would subside, but it hasn't. I finally decided to call my doc to see if this was normal. They want me to come in today to do a urinalysis. I guess it could be some strange coincidence that this hit when I started the pills.. but don't know. So the other thing is that I'm not having a period now. Was supposed

Day 4

So I forgot to add that Im also on birth control - Yaz. This is my first cycle. the yaz alone didnt seem to do much better on my acne than the last pill - Tri Nessa. But I was willing to give it a chance. I was unpleasantly surprised with the worst cramps ever last night and this morning. So now, I have these cramps, still a little bit of the urge to pee and cant. Im pretty much feeling like crap right now. I certainly hope this passes. On the up side.... dare I say??? My face is ac

Starting week of Spironolactone

So Ive read about a lot of different people who have tried Spironolactone and had varied results. Im actually blogging to keep track for myself and see if there is progress. My history with acne starts when I was about 14, thats when it really started to take over. I was the girl in high school who used sick days to stay home because my face was so broken out I couldn't stand to face my classmates. My parents spent thousands and thousands of dollars on every treatment you could think of fo
