Does birthcontrol really HELP acne?!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyeone!

My doctor said that a low dose of levlen birthcontrol might help my break outs.. I was wondering if anyone had ever taken this bc.

Did it work for them?

Did you get a really horrible initial break out? >__O


I also heard that bc that has low levels of progesterone (or was it androgen or estrogen? i cannot remember) would most likely help acne, does anyone know if levlen is one of those types of pills with low progesterone?

I'm taking Alesse, which is similar to Levlen but with an even lower dose of hormones. For the first month it didn't seem to be doing anything for my skin, good or bad, and I also had menstrual spotting for a full month (ugh). Now I've just started week 6, and between that and regular application of acne.org Treatment, my face is just about clear :dance:
