LO Ovral review by 3 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Mild Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   acne and contraception
Dosage & duration:   standard 30 mcg (dosage frequency: every day) for the period of 8 years
Other conditions:   hirsutism
Other drugs taken:   spironolactone
Reported Results
Benefits:   Within days, the acne disappeared. When taken continuously for 3-5 months at a time, the acne never reappeared and the hirsutism decreased substantially. We then added laser hair removal and stopped the spironolactone.
Side effects:   Spironolactone caused occasional leg cramping. The Lo-ovral caused some water retention.
Comments:   Spironolactone was taken 50 mg a day and then increased after 3 months to 100 mg twice a day. The Lo-ovral was taken each day. The laser hair removal was every 6 weeks. The acne was completely under control. When the OCP was stopped, the acne returned.
