So I went off Diane/Estelle 35 on 21/06/08 after 7mths as I have decided to have another baby.

Basically this BCP didnt clear up my skin and the first 4mths I experienced the worst acne of my life, the longest and worst intitial breakout ever and then my skin just calmed back down to what it was prior to starting BCP. Every month I experienced those bigs suckers that you can feel coming days prior to the big mountain that is about to apear and then stay with you for 2weeks after, really painful, I just call them cysts.

Apart from the fact that you feel a little psycho on BCP the side effects I experienced were big heavy sore breasts, low libdo, moody and crying for nothing, weight gain (although no excuse for feeding your face).

Have dramatically changed my diet and upped my exercise regime skin starting to get oilier now (less than a month off BCP, surprise, surprise) but still not looking to bad.

Have decided to do a 7 day herbel detox program, Im going to start it when I get used to the foods I have to eat/drink. Have started getting used to using Rice Dream milk for when I start the detox because milk is excluded?? Its not too bad which is great because Soy Milk is yuk!!

 LulieLou thats sounds like Hydradenitis suppuraiva-a form of acne-acne inversa to be specific. I am a med student so your description shouted at me.lol Not sure if your GP is working with you, but dependent on the factors contributing to your situation such as your weight, allergies (sensitivity to foods or certain materials),hormones, age, you have some treatment options. 

Best Wishes! ;)
