I have been dating a wonderful guy for a while now, and because of my allergy to latex, I've considered taking the Pill. (Here in Australia, latex-fee condoms are very expensive, and there is only one brand that is available.)
The only purposes I want the Pill for are to prevent babies and to skip periods (sounds like a real novelty!).
I've been reading about the different types of Pill, and they do outline generic side effects. I understand that every woman will react differently to the Pill, but are there any ichthyosis-specicific side effects that any of you have experienced? My main concern is the doses that reduce acne. Now, seeing ichthyosis skin isn't moisture rich, the reduction of acne causing sebum may not be the best.
Bearing in mind that I live in Australia, can anyone tell me of some brands that may be good for ichthyosis sufferers, and also, any side effects- ichthyosis related?
