    Spironolactone / Yasmin Initial Breakout

    Hi all I thought it was prudent to let you all know that I have been very unwell. Back in June I ended up in hospital for two weeks being treated for acute pancreatitis caused by gallstones. Since this happened, I have obviously been looking into it alot and have found that acute pancreatitis is a known side effect of both Yasmin bcp and Spiro. I started Yasmin back in August 2015 and ended up in A&E/ER with stomach pain. It wasn't until January 2016 I was diagnosed as having gallstones
  2. Hey everyone,

    It just occurred to me I haven't posted for ages. That goes to show how much my skin has improved. I'm so happy. My skin is beautiful. 

    If you're struggling with spiro, please give it a decent chance. It's been a God send.

      What has been your experience with spiro?? How long did it take to clear your skin? Initial breakout? Im on thyroid meds which i wonder if they are making my skin worse but hoping spiro will still help!!!

    Spironolactone / Yasmin Initial Breakout

    Hi there, From what I've read, Spiro is notorious for causing menstrual irregularities. You shouldn't get pregnant while taking Spiro anyway so I would suggest going on the pill to help with your periods. I am on Yasmin and I haven't had any problems at all with my periods.

    Definitely keep going with the Spiro if your testosterone levels are high as it will help for sure. I wanted to give up so bad but something kept telling me to give it a little longer and low and behold my skin started to clear. It WILL be a while, I think some people have said up to 8 months! Thankfully I didn't take that long to respond but it was a good 4/5 months like I mentioned before. Keep going!

    Hey, no problem! Yes I take Yasmin too. I started taking it about a month or so before the Spiro so I don't know if that prolonged the initial breakout. But keep going! Would be great to hear of your progress x

    Spironolactone / Yasmin Initial Breakout

    Hi Courtney, I am taking 100mg Spironolactone too. It has taken about 4 months for my skin to clear. My skin was sooooo bad when I started taking Spiro, I have never been so spotty in my life so Spiro definitely makes skin a whole lot worse before it gets better. I was on the verge of giving up so many times but I wanted to stick it out and I'm soooo glad I did. You must be prepared for your skin to get significantly worse for a good while before it gets better but it will get there. For me t

    Pictures aren't greatest quality but I wanted to post an update for you all. You can see my skin is significantly improved now. Not perfect, having a minor breakout of small pimples but I did a quick glycolic acid peel the other day so maybe it's that. I will document my skin progress in the peels for the mild scaring/red marks and sun damage. Hope your journeys are going well :)

    Spironolactone and hair loss

    I haven't noticed any hairloss particularly. Although I do think before I started taking it that my hairlines was receding and I think this was due to an excess of testosterone

    Spironolactone / Yasmin Initial Breakout

    Hey ladies Just wanted to give you all an update. I am now 12 weeks on Spiro; 19 weeks on Yasmin and this is my skin today. I can't tell you how happy I am. It looks worse than it is. My skin is so soft and the red marks you see I think are just scars. I am going to try some at-home Glycolic Peels for the mild scars/sun damage/blackheads on nose. My wrinkles on my forehead are vastly improved although I am still wrinkly around my eyes much to my dismay. I wanted to quit so
  11. I can see a good improvement since you start

  12. 8 weeks on spiro

    15 weeks on yasmin 

    Still suffering although it's not as bad as before

      Spironolactone / Yasmin Initial Breakout

      Hey guys, just wanted to give you an update. I'm just over 6 weeks in (I'm guessing I counted the dates wrong on my last post). Things are steadily improving. Day by day, I see a difference now. It started to improve about 5 days ago I think and has been getting better everyday. Fingers crossed!
