i was on birth control for 4 years and i never had a skin problem before.

now, that i am off of it, bc i do not want to take hormones...i broke out severly.

i would recommend not getting on them and trying other alternatives first.

hormones are not fun to deal with...and if you can control your acne without them i would highly recommend it!!

birth control can work to help prevent and stop acne.

Progesterone based pills can make acne worse, as can stuff like the injection.

Oestrogen based bills like Yasmin and Diannette are good for helping acne.
