Hi LisaMarie,
I am having a really troubling day. I wanted to run something by you. So it seems as though I breakout a little bit before my period, then continue breaking out about half way through it, then at the end of my period I get excited because it seems as though my acne is simmering down. However, I start taking the white pills of Ortho-Tri-Cylen, and between yesterday and today I have like 4 new pimples. I just keep thinking that at 200 mgs/day of Spiro I should be seeing some sort of results. You said you started seeing results at month 5, right when you upped you dose to 150 mgs/day...but I'm at 200....why is this not working....in your honest opinion (and your experience) do you really think I need more time????? I still can't tell if its getting better or worse????:confused:

Ok, Now I am really excited for you be/c this is definitely hormonl acne and this should definitely work for you! I know exactly how you feel!!! That is exactly what my face was doing!! You do need more time. I kept thinking that this was going to work for me to be/c it felt like it was taking sooo long!! And remember I wasn't going out of the house! I still am not going out of the house be/c of my scars. I'm still depressed about this whole experience. :( So it feels like forever, it's been almost a year!

Anyway, this is how my acne went... I told you that I only had a couple of days where my acne was "okay" (better then usual). Ok, so the green pills are the period time which my period starts on the wednesday of the green pills. So, I'm breaking out all through the green pills and my face seriously is trying to fix itself (very slowly I might add and with a few more breakouts) all through the white and like two or three light pills. So then I would get two or three of the okay days then at the beginning of the dark blue pills I would be starting to break out for my next period already. It seriously felt like I had my period all the time!! It sucked!!
My mom is right here and you can even ask her. LOL. She was with me as I cried everyday.

By what you just told it really makes me feel that this is going to work for you. I really want you to keep me posted!! And anytime you need to talk or need reasurrence I will try to help you. It will take time.
