So I went to my doctor about my problems on Ortho Tri Cyclen (bloating, bad cramps, strange periods, bad acne around my period, a LOT of moodiness, low sex drive). She decided that I should try Desogen; however, I needed to finish out the rest of my current pill pack of Ortho. That day I also decided that the clydamicin I was using on my face wasn't working so I switched back to 5% benzoyl peroxide. A few weeks b4 that I had changed my amoxicillian dosage from 500 mg once a day to 250mg twice a day. I've also been taking acidophilus every day to avoid getting the yeast infection I get nearly once a month.

It's now almost 3 days into the week b4 my period and no side affects! My face (altho it's dry from the benzoyl peroxide) hasn't gotten any cysts yet, I'm not moody AND I've noticed that I've felt like having sex a lot more. There's still the rest of this week and then next week for these symptoms to happen...

1. Should I start on the Desogen next and see what happens or just stay on the Ortho and see if I'm fine?
2. Would the change in dosage of amoxicillian effect my side affects from the birth control (for better or worse)?
How long have you been on Ortho? If it's not that long, I would stick with it, at least that's what my doctor said, I have only been on the pill one month and hate it...I'm on Ortho tri cylen LO But she told me to wait it out
