17 months following treatment!

I thought I should update this given it's now nearly 18 months since my isotretinoin (roaccutane) treatment ended.  I am over the moon to report that I've had no further spots since my treatment ended. All I have had is one small pimple on my temple which was tiny and went away in a couple of days - I've had no other spots at all. I can't quite believe it! 

I also stopped taking the contraceptive pill and I was worried that coming off it would cause me to break out again badly (as it has always happened previously when I've come off the pill), but nothing happened - my skin has continued to be perfect. 

I got married a few months ago and not even for a moment did I worry about getting spots on my big day, as I knew that I wouldn't. I just don't have to worry about it any more - it's so freeing to not think about my skin!

I've had no negative effects since coming off the roaccutane. I would say to anyone that has suffered with bad skin for a long time to give it a go, it was one of the best decisions I have made. Good luck all!
