Felice, I'm currious as to what your doctor said. I just start Estrostep yesterday and was told that this will be very good for my complection. I don't have any acne now and from reading these e-mails I'm getting very scared. Please e-mail me back and tell me what your doctor said. I'd really appreciate it Thanks! Pamela

>>  >>  >>  I noticed significant weight loss on Estrostep, but not unhealthy weight loss. I am very happy. I am experiencing acne which is worse than ever after 6 months on estrostrp. I am about to switch over to Ortho Tricyclen hoping it will help. Has anyone had any experience with this? Should I stay on the Estrostep longer and see if it clears up or switch over to the Ortho Tric? Also, does anyone lnow how long it takes to see results?
>>  >>  Did you experience weight gain at all? and if so, how much? - I have just started Estrostep and have also noticed some acne, but have heard that it goes away eventually.. I am a little worried about what may happen - feel free to e-mail me if you like!

>>  >>  I am currently on Estrostep Fe and have been on this pill for the last 4 months. This pill has unfortuneately made me break out horribly, but I have noticed that the acne has been getting better after the first 3 months of use. Regardless of this, my doctor has put me on ortho tri cyclen (starting next month) to help control my acne. I was wondering if my acne will start to flare up again once I switch to ortho tri cyclen due to my body's reaction to the different testosterone and estrogen doses. Is it normal for mild side effects to erupt when switching between pills or is the body able to make a smooth transition? If it is likely that I will break out again for the first 3 months that I am on ortho tri cyclen I would much rather stay on Estrostep Fe (since the last time I was on Estrostep Fe my acne went away completely after 9 months).
