Ive been on Mercilon for 3 months now. The first 2 months have been great but on the 3rd month i started breaking out really badly, should i continue 4th month and see how it goes or should i stop??

Hey there. It's a little strange to suddenly break out while on bc pills. Some things can disrupt the effectiveness of bc pills, and cause you to break out. But i think it would be helpful to know more about you and your acne. How old are you and whats your history with acne?

Hi, thanks for replying!
Well the acne started when i started taking natural herb supplemets for liver and gall bladder (for a week) at the end of the 2nd month on the pill. Im 18 yo, and i had moderate acne before going on the pills. 
I tried microgynin and hated it, made me break out and depressed.
