  1. Hi, i havent posted in a while but i am on month 7 day 4 of dianette and well i have some doubts now. I'm going to be switching to Yasmin next three months and well I don't know. I feel a bit confused. I mean I dont get many spots but I got a spot under my skin on my chin that feels like a lump! It has gone down considerably but it doesn't feel it should be happening at this point. Then I got a spot on my forehead that is not going down but looks red. Anyway! I got a positive though. A
  2. Okay it's definitely been a couple of weeks since I have been on here but I have finally hit month 6 third day!!!!!! Changes, you ask? Hmmm, well, my face is now smooth. i get the odd little spot and i mean ridiculously little and the scarring is slowly beginning to lighten. I can wear make up, go out and feel pretty again but i wish that the scarring would disappear. i'm still on the vitamins, i am very careful with make up but i am beginning to feel happier in my skin. I can handle it
  3. i didn't start seeing improvements til about month two. if you look at my past posts mine got worse before it got better but hold out because you will see improvements after. my advice to you is to not rely on the pill alone. Have you made healthy eating choices? introduced more fluid in your diet? I definitely recommend the acne duo cream from La Roche Posay to help skin feel calmer and look less red. it's horrible at first - trust me even i felt like crap for a while but there is light at t
  4. I am finally on month 5 - day 12? anyway my point is i had a pus spot on my chin two days ago and i did not take this for a good sign. why am i getting chin spots again?! little pus ones and just the one big one. I dont like it. i have stopped doing my herbal face mask but i do take my vitamins regularly and occasionally pop on my cream. i don't know why that happened but it bummed me out. on the other hand it's supposed to be clearing up but my scarring still upsets me. it
  5. i've finished month four and i'm three days away from month five. dianette is beginning to kick in more but i'm also aware that i'm getting the odd little spot. i am surprised i made it to month five and survived! i was reflecting over how crap i used to feel and how now when i look in the mirror i feel more confident, more accepting. it's so difficult to do when you're at that stage but i feel like it's made me appreciate more than just looks. the scarring is slowly going down to give
  6. so it's been a while. i have some progress... tomorrow is my last day on the pill for month four! it's been so quick! anyway - what i wanted to say was those little spots died down eventually and my face is slowly beginning to clear up! i am happier than i have been - a bit more confident and my birthday is less than two weeks and i dont think i'll be that paranoid about the pictures! hallelujah! aside from the chin spot i got which i'm scared about because i think i feel another brewin
  7. have you tried like a sulfur soap? could help dry out the pimples on your forehead - makes it look less red as well
  8. So i'm not sure what to write - i still have those spots one on my cheek that has died down, the other on the side which has gone down but the other one on the other cheek hurts ! it's going down don't get me wrong but i really am annoyed. i guess i was having a fugly day. i was trying hard not to feel it but i wasnt getting any new spots and suddenly i am. hurting ones. i'm back at work in a day and i dont really want to go in with new scars. anyway i started putting on my sulphur soap in
  9. So I made it to Month 4 Week 2 Day 2 of the Dianette - so i think i might have taken two steps back with getting the lotion. I used it and i felt like it was producing more oil for my skin and i broke out in some spots that were red lumps that HURT. i was so annoyed and upset because until then my skin had a smooth skin look and the only issue was the stupid scarring. THIS MADE ME MAD. I stopped using it went back to my normal routine and my skin has calmed down now but i feel like i waste
  10. So i have finally started month 4 of dianette. it puts me at month 4 day 5 ! i was happier with my skin it beginning to calm down and give me smoother skin. i can see the flaws beginning to calm down. my problem began when i was prescribed Dalacin T Lotion - or Clendamycin lotion whichever it's called. now i did read that it could make skin slightly red as skin adjusts but how long is that supposed to last? i got mini spots that hurt where i never had any before and it is slightly off p
  11. So i have a bone to pick with my doctor!!!! OH MY GOD! So i went to speak to him and he was like you can be on dianette for up to two years! the other doctor had only said six months then he said that he would give me a cream to help with the scaring and since that it was only majority scarring i was not in the last stages of acne..wicked news. so i got re prescribed dianette - i got a new cream it was time to double tackle and kick butt on the acne front ! errrr....nooo. i went
  12. okay so it's my second day on the break of month 3 on dianette and i am a little bit worried about getting any more soaps. i mean touch wood so far i am okay but i began to panic when two days ago suddenly i had two spots pop up on my NECK! Neck! why there of all places? I hadn't had a spot there and now i had two! one was little but the other was massive! i am hoping it goes down soon! anyway on my hunt to help my blemishes go down i have now found out about Black Sea Sulpher Soap ! i am p
  13. So i have two days left before i go on the break for month 3. Three months of dianette. hmmm.... so i need to book a doctors appointment and make sure i get the next set but what about so far? it has been a roller coaster ride of emotions and disasters! From month one where i was breaking out like i had massive pustules on my face and giant cyst like acne that was getting so bad i thought it would never get better to month two where the spots began to calm down and my face stil
  14. so it is officially month 3 which makes it week 10 and 5 days so almost two weeks into month 3. i'm having good days and really bad days in the way i perceive myself. i am beginning to have a calmer looking face but the scars are too much for me - they are dark and they stand out and i hate that they are there. i want it to be clear - i want it to be gone but i know it cant just disappear overnight. so i am stuck waiting for time to be the greatest healer when all i want to do is go bac
  15. Okay so i finally made it to Month 3 of Dianette which i feel is about bloody time! I started it four days ago so that makes it Week 9 Day 4! What have i noticed? my face is looking smoother. It doesnt have massive bumps on it all over ! i did however, for the better part of week have a huge lump on the corner of my chin and one on my cheek. it was ridiculously inflamed and it hurt but i held on and it's finally gone down leaving me with dry skin and a dark scar. whoo... anyway, i try not
