Different approaches: Spironolactone is only one approach to acne. Typically first line topical acne treatments are started first and then other medications added as needed. Oral contraceptives often help more than Spironolactone and they will help with cycle regulation. See your dermatologist for acne and your Obgyn for cycle regulation
