I think that's normal. I've been on the regimen for 5 years and I still breakout before I get my period.

I think BP is no match for good old estrogen, lol.

You can try upping the amount of bp you are using when it is near your menstrual cycle (or ovulation, whichever part of your cycle is giving you trouble). Also, Dan recommends AHA as a spot treatment, you might consider giving that a try.
