1. I was on BC to help with my chest and back acne - I would occasionally breakout on my face too. Since I’ve been off BC (for about 6 months), my chest and back acne are back but not dramatic or as bad as it used to be. I’ve also changed up my shower routine (shampoo/conditioner and then wash my body to remove any product that didn’t completely rinse off), which I think has helped. I haven’t really had any facial breakouts since being off BC but I now have a consistent facial routine that I never used to have (I’d go to bed with a full face of makeup on when I was younger - yikes!).

  2. I’m in the same boat, I’m about to start weening from 75mg of spiro to 50mg for 3 months, and then 25mg for 3 months after that with check ins as I go. I have heard taking supplements for a few months before getting off everything helps. Have you heard of the book “beyond the pill” ? It helps provide details on how to deal with post birth control syndrome. It’s all very daunting so I feel you :( this is the first time I’ve had clear skin my whole life and having to get off everything for ttc sucks
