I keep hearing people say that acne is a hormonal problem, but I've taken Diane 35 or Dianette birthcontrol pills before and they never seemed to do much. If my acne was hormonal, wouldn't they of had more of an effect since they block androgens? I'm thinking of trying Spiro b/c I hear it's more effective than birth control. Any input would be really appriciated.

Birth control pills work differently for everyone. One person's horomonal acne can be easily cleared by them while another person's horomonal acne can be made worse by them. You just have to find what works for YOU. You should try spiro. If it doesn't work, try something else.

The Yasmin BCP is supposed to contain some of the same ingredients that Spiro has in it and I think a lot of people have had luck with it as far as clearing up acne. Has your dr. mentioned this pill, or is Diane 35 just like Yasmin?
