I've been on all three, and tried Depo. Depo was the worst. I had problems on Ortho cyclen also, and was OK on ortho tri....I am on ortho Lo right now and am about the same as I was on ortho tri, still getting breakouts.

People seem to respond so differently to birthcontrol. I have friends that take BC for acne and it clears them up, but I have never had that happen for me, although my acne does get worse the week before and better the week of / week after my period. Best thing is to try one and if it gets worse switch to something else, until you find something that either helps you or at the least doesn't make you worse.

Good luck!
