Im going to my doctor this Thursday to ask her to put me on Spiro and check my hormone levels. I am almost certain that my acne is hormonal.

Anyways, I read around that a side effect of Spiro is weight loss, which I dont mind...

My question is, if you will be taking birth control alongside Spiro, some Birth control makes you GAIN weight. So.... what will happen if you are taking both?

Also who here has seen good results from Spiro?

If you request Yasmin, you may be able to avoid the weight gain. Yasmin has a progestin that's related to Spiro, so it gets rid of excess water weight.
