  1. Hi, I have been on spiro for quite some time but was always on birth control. As I got older I discovered how bad this all is for you so came of birth control and spiro as my skin was doing great. Over time my skin got worse so I decided to start taking spiro again but without birth control.. I’ve been on it for a year or so now and have basically had no periods. I know spiro causes irregularities but this seems extreme and I actually want my periods! Anyone else out there not on bc and have sim
  2. I've been taking DIM (Estroblock) for a couple months now. My acne is getting better though I still break out worst before my period and I'm certainly not clear. But I had really bad cystic acne and it is significantly better such that I can occasionally go without makeup and not feel too self conscious. My issue is that my periods have gone from clockwork to early or late and it's driving me crazy. I could always depend on it and mark the day of it's arrival but now it's just a guessing game. M
  3. okay, so i have been on accutane for 2 and a half monthsa and have been on my period for 2/3 weeks which is really weird cosidering they last 7-9 days (not normal ik but i have PCOS). i've also been getting like 2/3 nose bleeds per day, and have constantly felt tired and i don't want to get off the meds because they've really helped with my acne which i had for 7 years so i dont know whether of not i should go to the doctors to reduce my dosage or if its normal
  4. Hey, everyone! I have PCOS and, about 2 months ago, I started a new treatment with spironolactone, prescribed by my dermatologist, to treat mild acne. I'm taking 50 mg daily and, right after starting it, about 3 days later, my skin began to clear. I was loving spiro and everything was pretty amazing until my period started to become extremely irregular. I now get bleedings 2 times per month, with a duration of 5 or 6 days each, which I heard is a common side effect of this drug. The problem is
  5. I've been taking DIM (Estroblock) for two months. My skin is getting better although still breakout before my period. The annoying this is that my period used to be like clockwork. It was very dependable. Now it's early or late. Kinda making me crazy. Especially when it's late. My tubes are tied so I don't expect pregnancy but I think any woman wonders when she's late. Has anyone else had this side effect? I'm trying to figure out if it's the DIM or just something my body is going through. Thank
  6. Hello everyone, So I struggled with cystic acne all over my face and decided to go on the medication Accutane. I am taking a 40mg dosage and this is my 3rd month on the medication. I am also on a birth control pill as well. This month was weird... my period came a week early so I decided to skip my placebo pills( because who wants their period twice in one month)? Anyways, since then I have been "spotting" ever since its like my period is never ending. Its been about 2 -3 weeks now and I am ge
  7. Hi, I am new to this thread. I started taking Spironolactone for hormonal acne about a month ago. I took it for about ten days but then I felt so winded and weak and started bleeding (like a period- sorry if TMI). So I stopped taking the medication. Well ever since then, I have had spotting/bleeding for about 8-10 days and then it stops for a week and then comes back. I believe my hormones were thrown out of wack. How long until they level out? Anyone have experiences with this? Any f
  8. Hi girls! I'm 16 years old and I started Acutane (or Claravis the generic version) on December 24th about 14 days ago. I also started birth control when I got my period on the 27th. I missed one day of acutane and my prescription got messed up (i was given enough for only 15 days...it's a mess) but I'm worried about my period. I usually have my period for 6 days and some spotting the 7th and 8th day. But today is the 12th day of me spotting. I'm not bleeding enough to need a pad but it's stainin
