Re: Depo-provera

Well, it's really funny that this was here because I haven't been on this board in a looong time.

Anyway, yes I stopped the shot when I couldn't take the acne anymore (plus I'd heard some bad stuff about it). My OB/GYN never said anything about acne, so I didn't think it was related. But then when I went back to the derm to try to do something about all the zits, she kinda said "Well DUH, of course it's related, it's the hormone that causes acne in a lot of people" (not those words exactly, but something like that).

So then she put me on 100mg of spironolactone and duac (topical benzoyl peroxide with antibiotic) and that's worked great for a couple years. I didn't stay on bc, but you should try to switch to Yaz ?, I think it is. That has a small amount of the spiro in it, and would be much better acne-wise.

Hope that helps! Let me know what you do and how it goes! :)
