Progestin Only Bcp

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone,

I just came off spiro due to breast issues and excess shedding. I started taking it b/c of jawline breakouts, which the dermatologist said were hormonal. I didn't have any blood work or anything like that to confirm any hormonal weirdness. I cannot take combo bcp pills, b/c of an issue I have with estrogen sensitivity. Has anyone had any luck with progestin only pills? Just curious. I'd love to just leave my hormones alone, but if this is something that the doctor recommends, I would like to know if people out there have had success with the mini-pill.

Thanks

May

The mini-pill has been shown to cause acne.

Most progestin-only pills WILL make your acne worse.

You may have an estrogen dominance problem. I would research into that. There are completely different hormonal methods for estrogen dominance.

My dermatologist just ran bloodwork for hormonal imbalances. I'll get the results on MOnday. Thanks, even though I'm not considering this anyway.
