Need Some Help - Coming Off Bcp & Worried About A Flare Up!

Recommended Posts

Its been nearly two years since I've posted in this forum!

I've been on the BCP Yasmin for nearly 3 years now, it has improved my acne astoundingly! I have no spots at all now, its a miracle worker! However...I have to come off it due to personal/health issues.

I am now in limbo, my last day was yesterday & I've read many horror stories saying when coming off BCP your skin will erupt worse than ever because of the hormone levels changing.

I am anticipating this as I do not want to go through what I did before. Hopefully, I may have grown out of it or whatever but you never know!

Today I have bought myself:

  • Zinc 15mg

  • Vitamin D 12.5ug

  • Cod Liver Oil 410 mg

  • Evening Promrose Oil 500mg.

Firstly can I take these vitamins altogether?

And secondly has anyone found these to be helpful?

I remember before when my acne was very bad, I used Zinc and Vitamin D and it seemed to help. Never used the other two in conjuction before though.

Thanks Guys! It would be greatly appreciated
