Ok, so when I was younger I used to take the pill, all good.
Then stopped at 23. Slowly developed more spots over the years, until finally at 26 I was fully acne-fied.
I more or less fought the acne using creams and retinoids but towards the end of it went back on the pill, Yasmin.
Now, after 6 months of Yasmin, all seems dandy skin-wise, everything has healed nicely. Only occasionally get a spot here and there.
However I got my first ever migraine with aura the other day, told the doctor (stupid me) and she doesn't want to prescribe the pill anymore due to risk of stroke (btw that risk is minor).
Now, I am not sure what to do.
I don't really fancy toying with my hormones that much and besides acne fighting properties, I like that the pill also keeps you more wrinkle-free and in my case keeps water-retention in the boobs at bay (I hate big breasts).
But what I am wondering is this: Was my acne already fought before I went on the pill? And because of that would I be at risk of it returning at all?
