Hi, your message is really encouraging. I almost felt like giving up. I am like on the edge with my acne. I've tried eeeeeeeeeeeverything. (doxcycline, retin a, differin, clindamyzin, benozmycin, chemical peels, kiehls, clean and clear crap, cetaphil, purpose, neutrogena, hydrating masks, extractions, omg I can go on and on). I even eat super healthy, four to five bottles of water a day, tons of leafy greens, fruits, nuts, soymilk, teas rich in antioxidants. When NOTHING seemed to improve my face I turned to YAZ. I just started my second pack and my face broke out in a few painful pimples. It started when I began taking YAZ. I'm just hoping that it clears my skin by the third month because I am on a verge of a breakdown. It's comforting to know that others are in my position. So far so good with Yaz (PROS: bigger boobs, lighter periods, weight loss, mood is more calm) although i did start my period day 3 of the white pills and I got severely bad cramps that I was kneeling over most of the time at my job trying to mend the pain. I just started month 2 and im still on my period but it seems to be fading. I take vitamin b-complex twice a day in order to restore my vitamin B because YAZ depletes it which explains the mood changes in most women. I am also taking alpha lipoic acid 300mg for my acne scarring and it seems to be fading the red marks. Anyways, I'm just praying that my face gets better because I've tried everything!
