  1. Hi! I just created this log to see how my acne behaves and maybe help other people who have the same doubts about this type of birth control pill. I have moderate acne and I've tried to control it with natural things. I started taking them on April 10, they are called Gynorelle but are almost the same as Belara* and they have 2mg Chlormadidone acetate + 0.02mg Ethynilestradiol. The Chlormadidone Acetate is the antiandrogenic component and there's 24 active pills and 4 placebos. I'll post u
  2. Before I crack into the bulk of this post, let me give you an idea of contraceptives I've used/acne treatments I've received.. Started aged 14 on Dianette (Co-cypriniol) because I seemed to have an abnormal amount of hair for a female and felt uncomfortable about it. Symptoms of excess hair improved and I came off it (3 years later - 17 y/o) to get the implant in my arm. I became very hormonal and had a constant period so to deal with this, I was put on Microgynon (Rigevidon). Had th

    My Accutane Log

    Back story: I am a 17 year old female who has suffered from very light acne and the odd pimple since I was about 10. At the start of this year, being about 4 months ago my face has exploded with cysts, clogged pores, white head and black heads. Firstly beginning with a few on my chin then spreading to jaw, neck and check and occasionally on my fore head. It had gotten to the point where I couldn't even wear makeup and leaving the house was a nightmare! I was sexually active so I decided
  4. I was on roaccutane until October which completely cleared my back acne + facial acne wonderfully. I had clear porcelain skin. At the beginning of February I noticed I started getting a few pimples on my back again (as well as a couple of minuscule ones on my chin when it was nearing my period). My main concern was that my back acne might escalate if I didn't do something about it so I went to the doctor and was prescribed dianette (or co-cyprindiol as it is called in the UK). It's week 5 a
  5. Hey guys, Nearly at the end of month 2 on lymecycline. Went to the GP today to get more lymecycline because my derm recommended me to carry on going just in case I see results. I feel doubtful. I am considering Isotretenoin (accutane) and my derm gave me an information list or symptoms, warnings etc. The concept at first freaked me out but to be fair, so many people have gone on it and they have been fineeee so its a consideration. I feel frustrated because the lymecycline is not working. I

    Off, On, Off Pill?

    Ok, so when I was younger I used to take the pill, all good. Then stopped at 23. Slowly developed more spots over the years, until finally at 26 I was fully acne-fied. I more or less fought the acne using creams and retinoids but towards the end of it went back on the pill, Yasmin. Now, after 6 months of Yasmin, all seems dandy skin-wise, everything has healed nicely. Only occasionally get a spot here and there. However I got my first ever migraine with aura the other day, told
  7. Hey! Newbie here! Looking for some advice from any women who have hormonal acne or pcos and are taking both; birth control pills and an antibiotic like lymecycline to combat their acne! A little background info; I am 21, and have had mild/severe acne since I was 10, and was diagnosed with pcos in early 2015, and have been on a course of lymecycline for 2 months along side Yasmin which I have been taking for about a week (had some cycle issues that led to me starting up on birth control la
  8. Hi everyone, I'd like to share my experience with hormonal acne and how I cleared it up completely with the contraceptive patch, Ortho Evra. I've only ever read negative reviews of the patch in relation to acne so wanted to get a positive version out in the hope that this will help others ! I have suffered from acne since I was about 13. Antibiotics never worked for me so at 17 I was suggested the contraceptive pill. Dianette cleared this up completely however after 2 years the emotional si
