Experience

I got acne and had to go on spironolactone for that. The spotting in the beginning lasted a long time which was really annoying, about 6 months. When I got a second one there was much less spotting. After the early period of spotting I stopped getting my period altogether, which is great! I have anxiety so its hard to tell if this had any impact.
