Spiro+birth control

I saw my dermatologist today, and he was pretty unhappy at how little progress my face has made over the past three months. He was even more unhappy when I told him my periods had become extremely irregular. I've been on 100 mg spiro once a day, 150 mg of clindamycin twice a day, and epiduo.

He's decided that I should think about going on birth control, which I'm completely fine with. He wants me to do some research and talk to people before I make the final decision and contact my primary care physician to see what he thinks is best.

So, which BCP do you take along with your spiro? How do you like it?

My derm put me on spiro + generic yasmin (ocella) + differin. It's been about 4 months and my skin is pretty much clear. It took a good 2-3 months to clear up my face and back. :dance:

I like the ocella, my cycle has been pretty regular and no break through bleeding, so I have no complaints. Plus it's generic so the copay isn't sky high.
