Hi everyone, I'm in a position that I need to make decisions about my health and would appreciate your input.
12 years ago I had terrible cystic acne, after getting many cyst drained, creams and everything else, I went on the birth control pill and it cleared up. My skin has stayed great for 12 years. Now, a few month ago I went off the pill and thought my skin would be fine. Nope. The last few weeks I have had breakouts of pimples and one of the cyst is starting up again. So, my options will be to go back on the pill and hope it works again, or try Accutane, which is very dangerous, and no guarantee it will work. So, the other problem is, going back on the pill sets off all of my anxiety about the increased risk of blood clots!
