Just curious... does acne get worse after you go off birth control?

hey, not planning on going off the pill anytime soon but... just wondering if anyone had any negative experiences after being on the pill for a long time, or could share any insight on what might happen to me.

i am currently on OCELLA. it never really made my skin clearer, if anything my skin was better before i went on it. i've been on for almost 2.5 years now. If anything, my acne is worse now. I plan on staying on the pill for quite some time but I've heard some horror stories about going off BC. never about ocella specifically but idk. its freaking me out!

I'm honestly not sure because I don't have experience with birth control pills but I am going to move this to the sub-forum that deals specifically with hormonal treatments of acne.
