My doctor put me on birth control (Yaz) because I stopped getting my period and had horrible hormonal acne. However, I have recently figured out that I have candida overgrowth and I know that birth control does not help this situation at all. I am afriad to go off of it though because my acne gets soo bad and I become very depressed. At one point I was on spironolactone and that helped with my acne. I am wondering if sprionolactone is just as bad to take as birth control (in terms of causing / encouraging candida overgrowth)...or it it the lesser of two evils?
