"Reminder pill" week

Recommended Posts

This is the first time I've taken birth control and am on my third week. I wanted to know whether you tend to get breakouts on the 3rd week of active pills or usually on the week of inactive(reminder) pills since you are generally taking a break from the hormones. Thanks

My breakouts come before the reminder pills, and usually one or even two weeks before. It's such a relief when my period is over because my skin becomes "normal"(less active) again!

I started Yaz almost three months ago and so far it's been gradually decreasing my breakouts each month. I'm hoping this continues!

How long did it take for it to start working for you? Did it take time for your body to adjust? I noticed that the first 1 or 2 weeks I started getting a lot of whiteheads? Did this happen to you?
