Four Months off Pill

Hey guys   Just wanted to drop by with another update.  I have been off my birth control now for around four months.  This makes me a bit nervous as it usually takes about 3-6 months for my skin to react when coming off the pill, well in my previous experience anyway.   Nothing new to report at all really.  Apart from a potential 'big one' I had on my chin around November time, which made me think 'ok here we go'.  But it didn't come to anything and I haven't had another sinc
