I took ortho tri cyclen for 3 weeks and had to switch back to my previous birth control poll. Since starting taking it my already oily skin became so oily that I was uncomfortable all the time. Three days off of it and back on zovia (generic demulen) I'm back to normal. Has anyone else experienced this? Has anyone had any luck with a different birth control pill reducing oil production? Not yaz, yasmin or spiro though, those all make my hair fall out, and still falling out....

Strangely Orthocept did the same thing in regards to oil production. I'm on zovia 1/35 now though, and it helps, wondering if 1/50 would be even better.
