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!

I just started the same birth control as you about 3 days ago, I asked my gyno how long it would take to see a difference in my acne clearing and she said 3 to 6 months but as we all know everyone has different reactions to things so hang in there :)
