I only had very very mild acne. But all of my friends were on this pill and looking great so I decided to give it a try. It didn't do much for me- I attribute my clear skin to Benzoyl Peroxide


Don't want to come off of it and end up looking like a Pizza

What it does currently and what going off of it can do make this pill VERY addictive I would not recommend going on it unless your condition is severe Doctors hand this out like there's no tomorrow which is fine for me now, but I only wish they'd questioned me before allowing me to commence taking this pill

Clears skin, birth control


Loss of libido, vaginal dryness, chronic yeast infections

I would strongly advise anyone thinking of taking this medication to reconsider. Yes it did clear up my acne (mild-moderate) but the side effects were definately not worth it. This pill is an anti-androgen. Androgens are responsible for sex-drive. No wonder than that taking this pill totally killed my libido. The other side effects I had were vaginal dryness and yeast infections that refused to go away no matter what I did. After about 3-4 months of stopping the pill my acne came back about twice as bad as it was before. Now I'm on roaccutane - the only product on the market that offers the possibility of a cure for acne. I only wish I would have taken roaccutane in the first place instead of messing around with that horrible pill. Hopefully this helps someone.

Less acne, bigger boobs


Weight Gain, painful periods

I've only been on the pill for two months, but can honestly say that my skin has improved dramatically, yet I put on 2kg. I haven't suffered depression or anything, my self esteem has sky rocketed!
