I know medications work differently for everyone- but I am 24 years old, 115lbs, healthy and looking for a cure to my acne. I've had trouble with my skin since I was 14 years old. It doesn't matter what I wash my face with, how many times I exfoliate or what kind of expensive mineral makeup I wear- it seems like nothing helps! I'm tired of waking up in the morning and rushing to the mirror to see if I'm having a good or bad skin day. My doctor recently prescribed Loestrin 24 fe and I'm praying this is the answer. I've been taking it for a little over a week now and haven't noticed any side effects so far. Just wondering if anybody with skin issues has had a positive experience with this medicine? If so, how long before you began to notice a difference? Please share! :)
I loved Loestrine 24 fe. I am 24 and weight about the same as you. I took loestrine 24 fe for 3 years and it worked great. I didn't have any more cramps on my period, (Which is why I went on it to begin with) and I have always struggled with TERRIBLE ane too. When i went on this BCP it really helped to clear my skin. within the first few months I had great clear skin with only the occasional zit popping up around my period. (Just make sure you use a back up method if you take an antibiotic) I have a 1 year old little girl and right after she was born I got mirena, to make sure i didn't have any more babies right away. But I had such bad depressive symptoms that I got it removed. I have also tried Nuva ring which was alright but it didn't clear my fave that well. and It was more expensive than loestrine 24 fe. I have decided that of all the birth control methods and brands I have tried, I like Loestrine 24 fe the best. I was happy and had no acne, my periods were lighter, (oh and boobs bigger!) lol so I am going to be going back to it here shortly to help with my crazy mamma hormones! Hope this helps!
