At the start of July I took the pro.vera that my GP had given me. I took it for eight days. Four days after I stopped taking the pills, my period turned up.
It’s been long enough since that I now feel it’s safe to say that doing this has had absolutely NO impact on my skin. My face is still basically a war zone, and I’m still terribly self-conscious about it.
I’ve got less than a month before I’ll be starting birth control pills in preparation for a September FET. I’m really hoping those will make a difference for at least the short-term. Long-term, once we are done with trying to add to our family (whatever the result), I’m still struggling to know what to do. All I know is the current state of affairs cannot become my new normal.
