    Well, "improving every day" sounds good to me. How long have you been on now?

    She told me today that she is improving a lot now. There are many scars but I can also tell she is improving. She told me she knows it will take months before the scars heal. It's really quite a process isn't it? She has a friend who cleared up with one application of Benzaclin. It's just amazing what havoc hormonal acne can heap on a face. It just doesn't respond like normal acne.

    Re: Spiro cured my acne

    I know, tell me about it. Its not only embarassing but its annoying. Its like, people with clear skin probably don't even have to bother. I swear, id rather suffer from bad mood swings n cramps and a heavy period then have to deal with acne everyday. Its constant popping and hiding with cake-ed on makeup... thank god for make up. Anyways, I'm still breaking out but not as bad... my face is getting better finally. My scars are fading fast. Tell her I wish her good luck and I am in the same boat!

    Re: Spiro cured my acne

    Thank you for the good wishes. I don't tell her too much about the boards though cause sometimes I think she thinks I am crazy for doing it. She is out having a blast and living her life and I am posting away LOL. I am so glad that you are seeing results now. You are on your way to clear trouble-free skin and I am so happy for you and look forward to hearing about your continuing progress. Because I had it so bad I guess I never got over it. But now it's just a hobby to help others...I can give you fabulous over 50 skin care tips lol.

    Re: Spiro cured my acne

    She was away at school the first time she was on it so I can't really say. This time, well she is still in progress. Mostly red bumps left but fewer. As for me, I swear by the Obagi system and also think the clarisonic is wonderful. I stay consistently clear now with using both of these.

    Re: Spiro cured my acne

    So you were on the obagi regimen while on spiro? I just cleanse with the purpose bar of soap and use a little bit of benzoyl 5%.. I stopped all of my Roche-Posay regimen when I found out my acne was hormonal and that all of the harsh cleansers wouldn't make it better.. My skin has been improving a lot though. The scars seem to be fading out quickly but I still have little bumps too but thank god no more big ones, I hope my face is past that phase.

    One day off should not mess anything up.

    Re: Spiro cured my acne

    I just saw my gyn today and he prescribed me Yasmin (I have the generic Ocella). I have very oily skin (I can saturate 2-3 oil pads within 4 hours of washing my face, along with acne along my jaw and chin, and the occasional cyst. I have like hardened sebum bullets as well that I can feel under my skin). I also have a lot of unwanted hair, and regularly spaced but heavy and painful periods. Also, the week and a half before my period I am very lethargic and "lazy" almost. I asked if I could get my hormones tested but he said that it was unlikely that I had a hormone imbalance (b/c I'm in my 20's) and that the treatment is BC pills anyway. I have a follow up appointment in 3 months. If I do not see the desired results (less oily skin), should I push for spiro? Is it common for gyns to prescribe spiro or should I ask for a referral to an endocrinologist?

    I am so curious to see if all of you girls look great now. I guess so since you all are not on this site anymore. I bet you are all doing great.
