Birth Control (Diane35) log in Personal logs Posted March 25, 2016 DAY 28: It's been a while! Ok an update - My period came a couple days ago and oh my gooooshhh the pill has helped so much. In the past, my period would last about 5 days (which wasn't even that bad to begin with, I know), and the cramps would be so bad I would skip school to stay at home, lay in bed and cry. Anyway, this month, my period lasted around 4 days (it was pretty much gone by the end of day 3 but day 4 had slight spotting) and .. the icing on the cake.. I HAD NO CRAMPS! - With my period, came a small breakout. This was to be expected. There were two under-the-skin pimples that hurt quite a bit.. but they have flattened out (within a couple days which was crazy exciting) and a few white heads around my chin. - All of these pimples have 90% cleared up. I have not had an urge to pop and pick at everything lately because my skin has improved so much I'm not obsessing about it anymore. - Hyper pigementation from my past is still pretty bad but I have been using peter thomas roth glycolic gel twice a week, as well as the shiseido white lucent line. Fingers crossed. I'm also considering some kind of laser/ peel treatment but I am broke right now so that will have to wait. - I have lost weight. It hasn't been a considerable amount (around 1kg = 2lb) but I guess that's something. - My boobs have gotten slightly fuller since the last time I said I noticed a change in size. WOOO! (But I had pretty small boobs to begin with so I'm very excited) ok to summarise: I really can't say enough good things about the pill. I started noticing a difference in my skin after the 2 week mark (after the initial breakout hit me) and it really continues to get better every day. My period got lighter, I didn't have cramps, I lost weight, my boobs got bigger. >> everything resulting in a happier me! pls pls pls consider the pill if you haven't already. Have a great day everyone!
