Healing Acne Going Back On The Pill?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I started taking Yasmin when I was 14 for moderate acne on my face, and it worked great! My skin healed pretty well. Four years later, when I was 18, I decided to go off the pill to see if I had grown out of my acne or not. That was almost a year ago (last March) when I stopped.

Now my skin is worse than when I was 14, and I'm thinking of starting the pill again (yasmin).

How long will it take for my skin to start clearing up again if/when I start on the pill again? My acne is moderate/severe.

There's really no way to say. Generally it takes longer the second time around than the first.

Take this as a lesson learned. Hormonal problems do not go away for most women. Once you find a hormonal treatment that works to clear your skin, expect to stay on it indefinitely.

Good luck. I hope Yasmin works for you again.
