Thumbs up

I have been on orth-tricyclen (low dose) for about 8 months and my skin is consistently clear. I had mucho breakouts before starting BCP.

The list I got from my endroconologist for poly cystic which will also be the same list for acne treatment cause all of these inhibit androgens is:
Yamin, Diane 35(if outside of the US), Mircette, and Ortho Tricylin.
There are others but these seem to be the best for keeping androgens at par.

I am also on otc. I have been using it for about a year and a half. I think it did help my acne some what but not what I was really hoping for which is clear skin. I only had mild/maybe moderate acne. Now it is mild consisting of little pimples mostly only on my cheeks. The cool thing about it is it didn't make me gain weight at all. I am actually a little smaller, probably from being depressed a lot. LoL. But give it a try it can't hurt. Well, good luck
