Hormonal acne from birth control

Recommended Posts

Hi, I used to take beyaz for a year and had perfect skin. I forgot a pill one day but continued the pack. From there on I had horrible break outs so I went off the birth control. It's been about four months. I started again three days ago on doctor's orders and am already breaking out with painful cysts. Everyones says to stay on it for a couple of months? I started it the day after my period ended so I'm worried if I messed up my hormones by not waiting until I was sure my period ended. Should I stay on it?

I think you should stay on the pill for now. You can't really say something will absolutely work or absolutely not work after only 3 days of taking it, to be honest. They say that it may take anywhere from 3-6 months to see a difference in your skin. I would say to keep using the birth control for about 3 months and then decide if you want to keep using it or if it's not working. Good luck!
