severe acne within one month - yaz and spiro


looking to see if anyone has a similar story... i had mild acne as a teen and took yaz(generic brand) and it helped immediately!! it was a miracle and i took it up until 2017 because i feel like it made me depressed/gained weight. once i got off it i went from 120 to 105 pounds. i had mild acne nbd for about a year and a half but for the most part my skin was perfectly clear. 

this past march (24 years old now) my skin broke out horrifically (worse than i’ve ever experienced). it’s painful and won’t BUDGEz and just keeps getting worse and worse. i started yaz (generic brand- actually called nikki and now just using generic tablets) for a month and no difference..only worse. i started spirolactone a week ago and again.. nothing only getting worse. i’m also using duac in the morning and differin at night with cetphil wash/moisturizer.

 hoping there is a light and the end of the tunnel here. (i know it takes 3-6months but wtf why is it getting worse??) 

please let me know if anyone else has had this similar story!
