Birth Control Gave Me Acne

Recommended Posts

Ocella was causing horrible breakouts, and I noticed that on the placebo week, my skin would clear up. As soon as I started the next pack, I'd break out again. I stopped three days into this past week a few days ago, and my skin hasn't calmed down. I'm freaking out. I can't remember when it was this bad! I don't typically get blind scarring cysts :(
Anyone have  a similar experience?

Well ocella is like birth control or yasmin its messing your hormones. You mught have to give it time or just quit and find a new solution. I really dont reccomend hormonal pills for females because if you want a child later you might have to stop taking thrm and during your pregnancy your hormones will be further wacky causing bad breakouts. Im not a female so I wouldnt know about the period tjme for hormonal control pills to work, but maybe you should use topicals instead.
