Re: Almost 40, stopped OC, now with acne for 1st time in life!
I'm pretty sure it's the estrogen that's feeding the fibroids. I have one also and was off bc for 10 years. just went on again last year, nuva ring, didn't do much for my acne. Now i'm on yasmin, we were just going to monitor the fibroid to see how it does. I'm pretty sure my doc is going to take me off too, because my mom just went throug breast cancer and it was an estrogen fed tumor. I'm just not someone to be on hormones. I started the yasmin two months ago and thought i was seeing some improvement, but now i have my period and the typical breakout to go with it. I'm 36 and fed up with acne. I can't remember when i didn't worry about my skin. I'm wondering if they can increase your dose of spiro, i've read other posts and sometimes people require a higher dose to see results.
