3rd month on BCP

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone so Im currently on my second week of month 3 of marvelon 28.

Most of what I've read has said that with birth control you do not see results for 3 months.

Well...being on my 3rd month now Im wondering if that means that your still going to break out during month 3.

Because I am. Is it too far along to be having an IB? At first I thought that because my breakouts were in random spots (many times where I have these tiny bumps underneith the skin) so i figured it was these tiny bumps surfacing...but I still have a great amount of these bumps and I'm still breaking out...all over the place.

What are your experiences?

I've been on diane-35 (birth control) for just over a year now, and I broke out for about 4 months....After about six, the break outs were scarce, and my skin cleared. I still get mini-breakouts now, about a week before my period is due. But other than that, I'm satisfied with my results. It does take a while to clear and settle down, so you'll have to be patient. I'd be worried if your breakouts were severe after 4 months. Hope this helps.

I just started noticing drying at three months. My skin was still broken out though. I just started month 5 and my skin is looking much better. MUCH better. I'd say I started noticing clearer skin at month 4 but less oil at three. Everyone is different. If at 6 months you notice no improvement then it may be be the pill for you.
