Birth Control And Acne (Ortho Tri-Cyclin)

2 posts in this topic

I have pretty bad cystic acne and I've been on the pill for about a month? I was just wondering how long this stuff takes to kick in, what were your experiences with it? When did you see results? Did it get worse before it got better? I'm going crazy over here, help please!
