So I started on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo a couple of days ago. I have bad acne and I have since the 6th grade. Currently, I am a sophomore in high school. I have tried everything and saw no results at all. My acne is hormonal. My doctor then put me on birth control. The side effects have kicked in, where I do feel nauseous. Not fun at all! I just wanted to know is there really any improvement especially to face and body acne? How long does it take?

3 months. It took me 5 months lol, but some people only take 2 months! I'm just unlucky. There might be an initial break out though
