I didn’t. My skin has been under control the last few years and it stayed pretty much the same. Good luck!

I would call and ask if they can give you one more month of it –  I wouldn’t want to mess with my hormones like that 1 week before my wedding. Any time my script has run out, I can usually call about 3 times (in 3 months) to request it to be extended, and it has never been a problem

@mrsztobee:  Yeah, I guess you can never quite predict what hormones will do! I just remembered one time in the past when I was about to run out of my BC prescription, but couldn’t get in for an appointment, and my doctor was willing to call the pharmacy and authorize another pack of pills to get me through until my appointment. Maybe yours would do the same?

@mrsztobee:  I know this probably sounds bad, but especially if you cant afford to go in for a check-up, can you schedule an appt a little bit out, call for a refill, then later cancel the appt? They might be willing to refill it for you that way. When I came off HBC I had pretty bad spotting for a couple months and some really bad breakouts. I don’t mean to freak you out or anything, that’s just been my experience

@glitter-girl:  +1 my first thought was going off BCP you will likely get your period right around the time of your wedding.

I went off of the pill over the summer, my face has been breaking out the week before my period every cycle since then.  I actually just started the pill again, hoping it improves!

I went off at 23 after 6-7 years on and off. I had never had bad acne, but my cramps EXPLODED. I forgot how much they had hurt when I was teenager, but easily remedied with some advil or midol.
