Pages: 1 Showing 1 - 20 of 29 for estrostep good. (0.005 seconds)

... Hello! I was on Estrostep. It seemed to clear my skin well. I really did like it, but then my university pharmacy stopped carrying it, so I had to switch. The ironic thing is, it is supposed to contain more male hormones than other bcp, so I don't know how it cleared up my skin - I've also heard that most bcp help with acne (at least for some people). Good luck! ... (3 replies)
... Has anyone been on Estrostep? If you have, do you think it is good? I just got a prescription for it, and I was wondering if it just helps when you have your monthly cycle, or if it helps all the time? Also, the question I always ask: Does it reduce your oil production? Thanks in advance! :D (3 replies)
... I was on Estrostep for about 8-9 months (don't remember for sure). I went on it to help control my cycle and for acne. When I began taking it, for two weeks I was eating saltine cracker and water and was still throwing that up. But i managed through and stayed on it, it helped control my periods for a while and then just stopped working. It never did help with my acne, maybe a... (3 replies)

... I've taken Ovcon for about 4 years now -- its the exact same chemicals that are in Estrostep, only MUCH less of that form of progestin. Never had a problem with it. However, a year or so ago I started getting cysts and one of the things they tried to do to "help" was switch my BCP to Estrostep. In two weeks I gained 11+ pounds, broke out, blood pressure went thru the roof... (1 replies)

... Estrostep FE was the second brand of birth control pill I took. If I remember correctly, my skin cleared when I was on it. Not perfectly clear, but clearer. Since I have been on any type of BP my skin has had a large reduction in really large, inflamed zits. Good luck to you, I'd give it a few months to see how it goes! :) (5 replies)

... Good Luck! I know how excited and anxious you must feel!! I took a 6 month course of Accutane, so I will try to answer your questions... I think they do this for 2 reasons - first to ensure that you are not pregnant, and that the monthly pregnancy test result will accurately coincide with your cycle. Secondly, my derm (who is a woman too) felt that it helped redce the... (20 replies)

Sahuja- I know how you feel, I'm 40 and never had trouble with my skin until I hit 36, it went crazy on me, I am a medical aesthetician (skin care professional) so imagine how I felt having to go to work everyday and preach about skin looking the way I did, it was awful.
