Experience

Had to change from Cilest because it was discontinued so tried a POP pill instead. Had one normal period and then they stopped entirely. Which was fantastic! After 2 months I noticed my skin getting bad. Within about 2 weeks of this I had 27 bright red pustule type spots on my chin, a bumpy forehead (spots under skin), 30-40 spots on my back, 10-20 spots on my chest and neck. I carried on with it for another 3 months to see if it was a purge and might calm down. After the 3 months the spots were mostly gone from my face but I was left with discolouration, and my back, chest, and neck were still covered. After speaking to my GP I was put on to Cilique instead.
