@megz06:  This happened to me too when i got off the pill.  It was suggested to not use too much moistirizing.  Use it only at night time.  Also, my dermatologist saw me once a month and treated my skin, so the oily part would ceased and it did.  Now, my skin only gets like that around AF time. GL

@megz06:  YUPP. Went off, had oily skin and breakouts for a few months so I went back on it. 

I controlled it with Neutrogena Wave Sonic (that thing is awesome!) and an astringent.

I’m in the same boat! Im glad its not just me! I just finished telling DH that my skin has been so so oily and now this week i broke out like crazy! And when I say crazy I mean 7 pimples on my nose alone. Its never THAT bad.

My best bet is probably to see the derm, but theyre so expensive…I might try getting something over the counter first.

Good Luck!

Me too, I haven’t had many breakouts, except just before AF- but I just notice that I am ‘shinier’ than usual…you are not alone..
