Hey girlie-

I cannot wait to start the Yasmin, hopefully my GYN will not have a problem prescribing it to me, if she does I am going to be extremely disappointed. Perhaps for some women Mircette and Desogen may work, it really all depends on your body. Those of us who are more sensitive to androgens cannot use these pills and be treated effectively. That is why I want to go on a pill that has no androgenicity...I was actually going to go on Desogen or Mircette before I started reading up on Yasmin...glad I read more about it and androgenicity affecting acne. It is too bad they do not prescribe Diane 35 here in the States. I wonder why. Anyway, I am excited to see what kind of results we get from will be interesting!! Just be prepared for some side effects like breasts tenderness/enlarged (a blessing in disguise), nausea, weight gain or loss depending on your body, and possibly an initial breakout the first month.

As far as my daily Regimine for my face, here it is:

Obagi Foaming Cleanser
Effaclar K - salicylic acid 1.5% treatment
SkinCeuticals hydrating B5
and just started using Replenix Green Tea Serum
SkinCeuticals Sunblock if I go out and underneath my makeup (makeup is Jane Iredale mineral makeup)

Obagi Foaming Cleanser
Obagi Exfoderm Forte (glycolic and lactic acids)
Tretinoin 0.1% mixed with Obagi Blender

I have been on the Obagi system for 12 weeks and my skin would look pretty darn good if I could get rid of this hormonal stuff around my's the most sensitive and annoying spot!!! I have spent around $1,000 on my skin in the past few months, it would figure if the pill works...and for only $30 a month. But it was definitely a lesson learned and I am kind of glad I started on tretinoin. Remember, just have hope and think to yourself that this will work and it will!!!

Hang in there!!!!!! And keep me posted...
