Changing from Ortho Lo for acne
I was previously using Ortho Lo with Tetracyclene & Retin A for complexion. As usual neither of my docs told me that it wasn't good to use these two drugs together. Found out that it would increase my chances of getting pregnant, increase risk of birth defects, and also caused many yeast infections & sun burns.
I'm 28 so I really want to end this darn pimple cycle. I'm only using topical agents now for my skin, but I'm still breaking out quite a bit. Lots of little red pimples on my jawline only that I can never quite get to go away. I'm thinking of switching from Ortho Lo to something else in an attempt to clear this up. Had been on Ortho for 7 years and switched to Ortho Lo in the last 2 years.
Have read tons on this forum about Apri, Aleese, Yasmin, etc. Still trying to figure what is right for me without changing pills every 3 months. Mos def need the pregnancy protection, want clearer skin, less moodiness & no weight gain (feels like I'm asking for the moon!) Any suggestions???
