Believe30, I feel like were in the same boat.

I'm currently on Yaz, Doxycycline, and Retin a micro.

I'm starting my 3rd Yaz pack on Monday (Jan 5th). During the first month I just felt like my skin was getting worse and the second month wasn't much better.

I'm also getting acid peels at the derm once a month (3 total) and I think they may have been responsible for my skin worsening as well (the purges afterward). But in the long run I think they will help alot by getting all of the existing acne out now instead of later. I got one yesterday and my face is looking a bit better and so far, no purge this time :) . Maybe you could consider mentioning the acid peels to your derm, exfoliation is a key to improving acne.

But as far as Yaz goes, I've heard that 2 1/2 months is a popular time to start improving alot so im really counting on that being the case for me, and hopefully you as well. I know many people say 6 months but I'd like to be optimistic. And I believe 6 months was when they became clear? so improvement is all I need right now to start being more hopeful about Yaz, because honestly, I've been feeling a little doubtful...

Keep me updated, I'd love to know how you're doing.
