I am going to my doctor this week to get on birth control.Does anyone know of a good one that has cleared them up? Or the ones to possibly avoid? Please let me know im new with the whole birthcontrol thing. :oops:

Everyone's body reacts differently to different things so I cannot tell you which one will work best for you. My acne is hormonal so I am on Yasmin. So far, it is working well for me. Many women have success with Spironlactone (not a BCP) but I had no success with it. You just have to test what the Dr prescribes and determine for yourself. Sorry, I am no help.

Orth Tri-Cyclen worked well for me. I took it for about 3 1/2 years. I'd say after about a year my skin was totally clear. Just had a problem with dryness. Not too bad though. To make a long story short, I ended up with a blood clot in my leg and had to stop taking them.

Ask your doctor for more info. See my other posts for more details.
