Off the pill and starting anew....


My period has been completely messed up. It is either early or late and could start off as spotting and then last for over a week!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aaaaargh i can't stand it!
Also, i was on the pill for about 3years and never,ever had acne. I now have oily oily skin and my back and hairline has so many fine pimples!!!!!!!!!! i am 22 by the way
The GP said it will work itself out, but I want to know if i am the only one? i feel like i am going to be in my 'period' zone forEVER!!! like its just not stopping...and i dont want these zits to stay :( its making me so sad
Thanks ladies

been there...

So sorry to hear you're struggling with this! Many of us, including me, have been there. It really depends person to person. My issues cleared up after 3 months or so, but you could be shorter or longer and still fit in a "normal" range.

I even found that through much of my 20s I had times of what seemed like I was going through puberty again! After I had a few babies, I'm finally happy with my skin and cycle regularity.

I wish there was a simple answer :( Until then, drink as much water as you can and experiment with different beauty regimens - exfoliation (I suggest with a mild or all-natural product for less chance of reaction), honey masks, and possibly a different line of face makeup (ie. foundation) to reduce the irritation. Unfortunately I don't know of any remedy for your irregular period. You'll probably just have to wait that one out.
