I did accutane over a year ago and it changed my life. I've always been on birth control, about 10 years now (I'm 26). After accutane the only time I got pimples were a couple during my period. My doctor and I decided continuous cycle oral contraceptive would be a good idea for me to try to keep my hormones level and for other reasons it was a good idea for me not to have a period for about a year. I'm on amethyst, and I see its on that list of birth control to avoid. Most of the time my face is fine but this is the end of my third month of pills and I've had 3 flares of big pimples. Does anyone know of extended cycle birth control that either is neural or good for acne? I'm desperate for help and I can't find this information anywhere.

I've heard you can just take new Yaz/Yasmin pack right after the pills in your previous pack end, skipping the placebo days altogether. I would recommend you talk to your doc before trying that, though.
