Contraceptive Pill Vs Ius - Progesterones Affect On Acne

Recommended Posts


I was on the combined pill for 10 years, and when I stopped over 12 months ago, I really suffered badly with my skin. I had outbreaks on my chin and forehead which I thought may clear when I became pregnant. When I did become pregnant, my skin got a little better but I still suffered with regular spots on my chin.

Anyway, I have now had my baby and am thinking about contraception. I dont want to go back on the combined pill as Im worried it will mess up my hormones again and cause more outbreaks. My GP has discussed the IUD or IUS coil. The IUS seeming the better option but it does contain progesterone.

Does anyone know if its therefore likely to cause outbreaks?
