I'm meant to take doxycycline before taking Yaz 'the pill' which both help to clear blemishes. I'm worried about starting to take Yaz a week before my formal but the doxycycline is meant to help? Should I wait until my next menstrual cycle and retake the doxycycline before Yaz? Or risk bad break outs and flakey skin for my formal and keep going with the tablets? I've been looking at outcomes of Yaz but I'm not aware if they used the doxycycline before hand?
When first starting birth control pills of any kind there is the risk of bleeding. You don't have to wait until your period to start it. Its just better to start with your cycle, but its not imperative to start it then. I'd take the doxycycline till after the formal, then start the yaz. It will alter your period time but its not really important.
