I've been on Generess Fe birth control for about 11 months now and lately I've been reading horror stories about getting off of birth control. I've been taking the birth control for ovarian cysts that I have gotten, not for hormonal acne. My skin is pretty much clear as of now, but I don't think I would attribute it to the birth control. When I started the birth control I noticed no change in my skin (good or bad) and my skin my skin didn't change until 8 months ago when I started the Clarisonic skin brush. I've never had cystic acne and my chin is not the main area that I would get blemishes. When my gynecologist decides to take me off the birth control, I wanted to know, will my skin become a nightmare? Generess Fe is a low dose birth control and it contains an estrogen called ethinyl estradiol and a progestin called norethindrone. If anyone has been on this birth control or gotten off it, please let me know your experience! Thank you!
