Question for the ladies...

Recommended Posts

This is sooo weird... I have noticed that during the week I am off of my birth control pill I am clear... and I thought us girls were supposed to break out during this time? Haha lately I have been looking forward to that week instead of dreading it lol. Has anyone else experienced this?

Depends what bc pill you're using. Periods on bc are not real periods... We've been discussing them in the Prescription Acne Medications forum. If it's a high estrogen dose pill then that could be why your periods leave you with clear skin. Of course, it could be that your skin starts forming the acne during your period and then the acne surfaces during the times you are taking the active pills. To see if this might be the case you can try skipping a period or two (just go straight from the end of the third week of pills to the first week of a new pack).
