First Time on the Pill? Which one should i choose?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

This is my first post here, so let me know if i'm doing something wrong! :o

I'm sixteen and recently my acne has gotten very bad. I've decided I want to go on the pill.

I guess, a good thing to say is.. my body is, err.. weak. I'm looking for the pill that will both help my acne, but also not make me feel terrible all the time (maybe, a gentler one on my body but will still clear up my face).

Any recommendations?

Also! How long does it usually take before it works?

Welcome to Acne.org, christiee :)!

This topic was actually discussed not too long ago: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Birth-Con...ll-t263835.html

Birth control can take a few month to help clear your skin, and can actually make your skin a little worse for the first couple of months, because your body has to adjust to the new hormone levels. Skin usually starts to get better by the second or third month.
