Different BCP's

Ever since I was about 13 I have had constant mild acne. I get painful cysts on on my chin and forehead. I tried antibiotics, retin-a and another otc prescription cream. Finally my doctor put me on YAZ and it worked great, within 1.5 month my acne was completely gone. About 5-6 months into it thought I started getting really bad migraines so my doctor switched me to ortho tri cyclen lo. For the first 3 months everything was ok but I am now on my 4 month and my acne has come back! Is there something else similar to YAZ that I can try?

Some girls experience acne on OTC Lo since it doesn't have the same hormone level as YAZ, tell your doctor to put you on regular Ortho Tri Cyclen, it may help.
