The Pill gave me cystic acne

Recommended Posts

I had the absolute worst cystic acne when I was on Aviane.

I'm curious if ALL brands of the pill would make me break out in the same way?

I got really bad acne, after I went on yasmin, and it got worse, over the years it has gotten better by certain medications but then they would stop working and I would break out again. I blame the yasmin befor ethat, I only had the occasional really small pimple and only when stressed, and after I took yasmin I had really bad acne.

ortho tri cyclen (the name brand, NOT the generic) cleared my cystic acne so well that when I was on it I didn't have to use any topicals or makeup. I got off of it and didn't even break out badly again until a few years later, but I think it was due to other issues (mostly diet/sleep/stress). Definitely try ortho if you can. I did switch to the generic once and it made me retain water/gain weight and get a few breakouts on my chin, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you really can't afford the name brand.
