Birth control pill not controlling acne any more?

Recommended Posts

I have been on a birth control pill to control my acne for around 6 years now. I had severe acne all over my face when I first went on it and it cleared my skin completely. I was acne free for about 2 years then got the occasional pimple. Now I am 24 and am experiencing some bad hormonal acne (i think it is hormonal as it is just on my chin). Nothing has changed for me recently for me to start breaking out like this, although I have had trouble over the years with random big break outs. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience? Or since I went on the pill when I was younger, has my body changed and my pill no longer controls my skin how it used to? I would like to go off the pill to see what would happen but I am terrified  that I might look like my 17 year old self and I'm also about to go travelling for a while and I don't want to have to worry about my skin too much.
