Talking Is there initial breakout w/ SPIRO???

Did anybody experience an initial breakout on spiro?

I started Yasmin + 25mg/day spiro 6 weeks ago. It has been a rocky start, but I'm holding out, and my skin is already less oily and back/chest acne has cleared (face is slowly)...I am going to ask my Dr tomorrow to up me to 50mg/day spiro, at least until my body adapts to yasmin better, but if there is initial breakout I will hold off cause I have a big date and my 25th birthday in a week

I have had a breakout period on chin/jaw so far--but I'm thinking it is yasmin.

Yeah, I had the initial breakout with Yasmin occur on my chin/jawline as well. As soon as I started spiro (about 3 months after I started Yasmin) I never had any breakout problems and I am now perfectly clear with the occasional normal pimple every once in a while after being on 50 mg spiro daily for 1.5 months and Yasmin for 5 months.
