Hi, well I did not make it through my period unscathed. I got 5 new spots. They were not too bad-- but it did ruin my stretch of clear skin. During this time I did miss one dose. This is leathal when on spiro. Really cannot be sure if it is the missed dose or my period that brought on these new spots.
Despite this set back-- the bottom line is -- my skin is much better than it has ever been. The side effects are fading-- with exception of the motivation factor-- It still feels like I am missing a certain pep in my step-- my drive is noticably reduced. This is a bummer. Also, my skin is very dry so I am wrinkling... fast! Wish I could just have beautiful supple skin naturally...yet this is not my lot in life; so I will work with what I have got.
