Yaz-- 3 months or more to kick in?

Hello, I've been lurking on here recently but finally created an account.

So about my acne.. my skin is mostly clear in the summer with a pimple here and there. Starting in September, for the past two years I see huge breakouts around my chin/jaw area. I started birth control to hopefully see an improvement and have now been on Yaz for nearly three full months (I have 4 days left until I'm done with my third pack)

I've done a lot of research and have mostly heard that patience is key with Yaz, and that it takes more than three months to kick in. However, I just spoke with my dermatologist on the phone and she said I should have seen an improvement BY the third month. My acne is still as severe as before.

I've gotten a blood test done and my testosterone levels, although in the normal range of 14-76, are pretty high at 52...

Should I request to be put on Spironolactone or give Yaz some more time to fix my awful skin.

Thank you so much to anyone who can offer advice
