I'M GOING OFF THE PILL AFTER MORE THAN A DECADE AND I'M KINDA FREAKING OUT ABOUT IT

  1. I've been taking a form of Yaz/Beyaz since I was 16.
  2. I just turned 28. I have never been off the Pill for any reason. Ever. That's a long ass time.
  3. And I just took my last pill last night!
  4. My plan is to go off the Pill until the Fall and get an IUD in September/October.
  5. Here are some of my concerns:
  6. My skin.
  7. Okay, like, that's my only concern. My skin is literally the shit.
  8. LOOK AT THAT PORCELAIN REALNESS. And that's just a Nars tinted moisturizer I have on. There is literally nothing else on my face foundation-wise.
  9. I have, in the past (while on the Pill), dealt with crazy cystic acne on my chin and jawline. And then I stopped eating dairy and it cleared up.
  10. My plan for when I go off the Pill is to: drink plenty of water (duh) and keep taking all the supplements I already take to maintain stomach health (zinc, l-glutamine, probiotics, fancy multivitamin, fish oil). And to continue making sure my dairy consumption is super low.
  11. Have any of y'all *over the age of 25* gone off the Pill after being on it for a long time (I'm talking *years*, not weeks or months)? IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD BE DOING TO MAKE SURE MY SKIN DOESN'T FREAK OUT
  12. Tagging @dena cuz she's the skincare queen
  13. Thanks, loves!
